Risen Spirit just ran (unplaced) in the first at Tampa Bay Downs, 7F $8k maiden claimer. Caught my eye due to his white- flaxen coloring that extended to the mane, making him look almost palomino.

Anyone else ever seen this animal?

No pics, alas.

He looks like the great sprinter, Apache Cat. Wonder if they're related?

I watched that race and didn't even notice. Bloodhorse has some clearer pics:

I didn't even notice the spots when I watched the race...probably thought they were just kickback from the muddy track. They're much clearer on the Bloodhorse pix...thanks for the link.

Thought I would add pictures of my colt to this thread, he came out with lots of white ticking throughout his coat!

What a handsome fellow, BC. You must be very pleased. And in addition to all of his white ticking he does have rather unique facial markings.

I found this picture I took of a horse named Security Blanket. I thought it was strange that his mane had gone almost snow white before the rest of him

I got an error message that said:

It shouldn't be. I'll double check the settings. How do you embed a picture here?

The easiest way I've found is upload a pic to a site like Photobucket, then click/copy the "direct link" in the menu of embedding choices you're given.
Then, paste that link in the comment box, highlight it and click the IMG button above the comment box to wrap it with the image coding.

I'm sure he is much lighter now (this was taken 4 years ago), but I'd never seen a grey/roan with a mane that color before. He got it honestly though...he was by Buddha and his distaff side is full of greys/roans as well.

I love the star/blaze on this horse's face. I would have named him Bolt.
