Ottb critiques for possible buy
Hey guys! I'm going to look at these horses soon and I know nothing of conformation. If you guys wouldn't mind doing a quick conformation evaluation and letting me know which you would choose(purely based on confo). I will be seeing these lovely boys in the next 2 weeks or so and can see their motion ect then. Thank you so much!

1. Victorious. Forget age, 16.1h
2.Sam. 3 years old, 16.1h
3. Kingspiel. 5 years old, 15.3h. Sorry its really bad for confo, but if you see anything let me know

I can't say much on conformation. I doubt the second horse's JC name is really Sam, and I'm iffy on the first. The only two Victorious JC Thoroughbreds that could potentially fit are a 2000 Japanese gelding and a 2011 colt (who would likely not be an OTTB at this they really race yearlings?!).

As for the third horse. I'm liking him if I have found his proper pedigree. Kingspiel in Canada...he's got some good ones in his blood. War Admiral, Northern Dancer, Halo (one of my all time favorite horses). From what I can see in his photo he has a very kind eye and a beautiful head, he may be a bit over at the knee. His neck doesn't look like it's an overly ewe-neck. May be the position he's in, but possibly slightly upright pasterns. I'm bad with conformation though, so don't quote me on anything.

I like the third horse the best. He appears to have better bone, especially , shorter canons. I always worry about thbds, they seem to be so spindly legged.

Reno Bay you're right. Sam is his barn name, I'm going to ask for his tattoo or registered name when I see him so I can check his records and pedigree. I'm not sure about Victorious, I had a hard time finding stuff too.

Like #2 and what I can see of #3. If you can get a better picture of #3 and I still like that horse as much, it would be awesome. Love the wide open throatlatch.

Lots of horses go back to Northern dancer, War Admiral and the like... Look at the first three generations and then the number of times a horse goes back to some of these on the line breeding. That is way more telling than have any of these old studs "somewhere" in the pedigree.

Of course, if the horse is really any good blood wise, he/she probably won't be looking for a home either.
Just sayin'
