I think he looks okay if you put your thumb over his head.

A girl who went to see Arrogate was told by Juddmonte that they weren’t allowing people to take photos of Arrogate with their cell phones because people have been posting a ton of unflattering photos of him. They did allow her to take photos because she had a professional camera, but they were still funny about allowing her to post the photos.

Maybe they'd be more open to you taking photos...if you promise to position your thumb over the lens so it covers his head? :P :lol:

He does. He’s got the T. rex thing going like Tiznow.

Arrogate is charismatic but that's a presence thing I think, more than it is an aesthetic one in his case :lol:
He doesn't have the greatest conformation either... But as talented as he is, maybe he'll pass on the qualities that matter most to his foals?

Speaking of PoTN, any recent photos of American Pharaoh? We hear so much about Chrome, but I know Coolmore isn't as responosive to goo-goo eyed fans!

That is a much better photo than the fan photo posted upthread. I agree with Baroque he is a very handsome horse- he looks a lot like his sire, actually.

Re: Pharoah
Coolmore posted videos and photos I think when he returned from Australia with Air Force Blue and Vancouver. At least one fan also posted a pic in the comments. I assume they wanted to also give time to re-adjust and prepare for breeding season here.

They posted this neat pic of Vancouver today

Thanks, Treve--just took a look at the Coolmore FB page. AP still has that kind eye!

Considering how well Scat Daddy's offspring have done overseas, I'm not surprised that an Irish farm imported this stakes-winning son. And he's pretty nice-looking. 8-)

I'm sorry, but IMHO he's a rather unattractive horse. :oops:
Awww, just because he has a head like a school bus...

I'm not sure how long they've been up for, but it looks like the Adena Springs North Stallions have new conformation photos. Looks like they were all taken in a different place then photoshopped onto another background.

Giant Gizmo is overweight bordering on obese. The huge crest points to IR. The other stallions are on the heavier side but not quite as bad.

Compare to Gizmo's previous photo
