The filly looks great to me…..very pretty, soft eye.

She is just cocking her hind leg- I'm not seeing a conformation issue.

The funny thing with genetics…I would rather own this filly who can't run a lick rather than a multiple grade 1 winner with no pedigree.

I would NOT be shocked if this filly goes on to produce graded stakes horses…..

Careful, that's what breeders said about Sunday Silence when he retired. ;)

I have a couple of really bad shots of Tiffany's Honor, from her first race. Sorry for the quality:

I just remember wondering where her hip/butt went and being really underwhelmed.

Thanks for the pictures. She's very pretty. Is she smaller? Looks like she might be in these pictures but maybe the people around her are tall. What are her times for her works?

I agree with others who've said these fillies are treasures, if not on the track, then as potential broodmares.

She was fairly small, IIRC. I'm sorry, but I don't know the times of her works.

Here's a photo of Better Not Cry. She's not stood up all that well, but I only had about 90 seconds with her. Bluewater's FT Nov. consignment was insane.

I don't know if it's the angle of the photo or if she's moving, but that back leg is scary.

Yes, it is.
She's just moving. Or she has her leg cocked.
