This Incredible Hulk of a horse is Japanese Champion Sprinter & Champion Japanese first season sire elect Lord Kanaloa, who hit the Japanese breeding scene with the speed and brilliance he did as a racehorse. Arrowfield offers two fillies by Lord Kanaloa at Magic Millions.

Holy ****. :o
Doc Allred's Quarterhorse stallions want their muscles back. :P
I hope someone is riding that big boy regularly. I'd hate to see photos of him ten years down the road looking like Secretariat...just before the laminitis. :?

Shadai Stallions get handwalked and lunged daily, not ridden. Not sure what the protocol is at Arrowfield.

Pretty sure Lord Kanaloa is not standing at Arrowfield Stud. He's not mentioned on their website. Arrowfield does stand Real Impact, Mikki Isle, and Maurice...so their investment in Japanese breeding is pretty substantial.
I think Arrowfield sent a couple mares to Japan to be bred to Lord Kanaloa and those foals are going to auction soon.

Yeah sorry I should have clarified - Lord Kanaloa is at Shadai, the tweet was from Arrowfield & it's their photo. :roll:

I've become a huge fan of the late Scat Daddy and his offspring, but.....
IMO, Tu Brutus is not one of his better-looking sons.

I agree. I don't know what it is about him, but I'm just not a big fan.

Perhaps it's just the odd juxtaposition between the large stallion and the seemingly very short fence. The proportion just seems all off.
