She's a really attractive filly, regardless of her colour but that white makes her pop! So happy for her :D

They had before & after the race pics up on twitter, I felt soooo sorry for her grooms. :lol: She was pristine cloud-white in the parading ring and so muddy she looked fleabit grey after running.

I saw that race and I'm glad someone has posted a photo of the colt. His coat is so golden and his mane and tail so flaxen that IMHO he could be registered as a palomino. 8-)

He sure does look like a Palomino. Very good looking horse.

His hind legs look really straight in that side shot. :?
Maybe he'll make someone a flashy saddle horse, but I would be surprised if he's a successful racehorse. I hope I'm wrong, because I have a soft spot for Clyde (Get Stormy). ;)

Miss Vista, the splash white, finished 3rd in her race at Caulfield today. Haven't found a replay but in Googling for the results (grrr, TVG didn't show it), I found a Facebook page with more photos of her.
https://www.facebook.com/racingalong/

I caught Miss Vista on Australian racing last night at Seymour...she led for about 4 furlongs of a 5 furlong race and then was "swallowed up" by the closers. In checking her recent record I noticed she hasn't been doing well after coming back from a break. Perhaps retirement will be in her future?

The stance and angle of the photo makes them look worse than they are. But as it were an article on Bloodhorse implied that the person who bought him was likely just a collector and wasn't sure if he'd race him or just keep him as a nice flashy hunter for his daughter.
