Talking Widow Maker AKA Apollo and Harley update

Harley is my 6 yr old grade QH working on topline, headset, lightness, responsiveness, and dressage. Apollo is my off the track 10 yr old STB pacer gelding learning to be a riding horse. Right now he is working on balance, confidence, trotting, bending, and transitions. First, we will start with Harley's photos.

He doesn't look very comfortable or happy.

Edit: I mean't Harley, sorry! Didn't see the second pics.

Glad to see my friend Apollo again
Harley: if you look at all pictures of him, everytime he is in a straight he loses headset. Translates into : bending, bending, lateral work. Shoulder ins, legyields, turns on the haunches andNEVER straight.
The same for Apollo. First in a walk only. All lateral exercises, circles, figure 8's, and again, NEVER straight.
You will see a difference in both of them soon.

Thanks!!! Have you ever seen Apollo? He came from California. Racing name is Widow Maker. He is by Tulane (by Admiral's Galley) and out of Humming Strings (by Precious Bunny). He was owned by Desomer Stables. Here are some pics of him when he lived in CA...he was born in Wilton and was 4 years old in the pictures.He was stabled with his two half brothers (both by Tulane), Tu Charming and Blue Canyon. He was sold to his owners that had him before me for $100,000. Out of 206 lifetime starts he won 17 firsts, 33 seconds, and 31 firsts. He had a lifetime mark of 1:52.4m. And won a total of $134,639.

Definitely in race condition
Now, I haven't seen him, but I haven't been here for long, and Wilton is a ways away. Im wondering if they still breed and race? I wouldn't mind having another standie
