While his neck might be on the shorter side, it balances out with a shorter back and a nice haunch.
His angles all over are really pretty nice. He has a nice length of pastern at a good angle. His shoulder is nice and sloped.
His only real fault isn't a fault at all. He has high withers.
Random question...how did he do on the track? Being so short coupled, I would imagine he was quick but not 'fast'. If that makes any sense. Oh and where is he from...my ottb is the same age and I have a strange fascination with their past lives....lol
Lol yeh his father and great grand father are both bays and both have a very similar blaze. Northern Dancer is rockys great Grandfather and Shinko King is his sire
Oh cool thanks for your comments! It is nice to know ay.
He has had 19 starts, 2 wins, 1 3rd, 1 4th, 3 5ths. Stopped racing in sept 2004. So yea he wasnt fast enough but had a little luck I guess. He sure loves to run though! His paddock is a race track for him lol
