Name that horse!

I thought of a game today which might be fun. I thought we could give it a go!

How it works

The first person chooses a famous horse from history and starts off with one clue. This clue is a one-liner piece of information about the horse (gets people off on the right track.)

The next person posts another clue, but they don't know if it's true or not. If it's true, the first person just says so. If it's not true, the first person 'disproves' it with a clue containing information that shows it's false.

The first person to guess the right horse picks the next one!

Example

First poster

A famous racehorse.

Second poster

Came from Australia.

First poster

False, was an American Thoroughbred.

Third poster

Raced over ten years ago.

First poster

True

Fourth poster

Secretariat

...and so on :)

Try not to make the clues too obvious so as to give it away!

I'll start, this one will be easy so people can get the hang of it before we go obscure :).

This horse was an Appendix Quarter Horse.

I don't think so (I looked it up and it's hard to see.)

He definitely had at least three.
