The Cairo Prince x La Belle Cat colt reminds me of Alysheba. Very similar in his head and long, arched neck. This was Alysheba in his racing days. He was quite the looker also. Even with the blinkers on, you can see the similarities between him and the young colt:

Well if he can run to his looks like Alysheba, he'll be quite the racehorse ;)
Another colt I had my eye on (because I was expecting him to go through the ring last fall but was an OUT is a Cairo Prince x Tesoro de Amor (Medaglia d'Oro))
Sold for 260 000$ (if you consider this crop's stud fee was 10 000$...)

The highest selling colt by CP was out of Turtle Beach (Out Of Place) who sold for 265 000$ and was also a very attractive, big strapping colt.

Will Take Charge and Paynter were also off to a good start but from what I'm reading the Cairo Princes have been the standouts in first crop sires.

This photo of a herd of curious foals is courtesy of the Taylor Made Farm Facebook page. (No info there about who the photographer was, but here's the link to the page: https://www.facebook.com/taylormadeadva ... =3&theater ). I'm posting it here just because it's such a fun, enjoyable picture.

I see no mares anywhere in that photo, so I'd guess that bunch of curious kids are new weanlings.
