I know Mastery was fast, but his looks do not impress me. Kind of an awkward-looking build.
Telescope, on the other hand, is quite handsome. <3

In fairness, Mastery is stood up really poorly in that photo. It appears that he resembles his sire.

Telescope looks like he'd make a fine all around riding horse. I could just as easily picture him leaping over stone walls during a field hunt as I could see him strut his stuff in a dressage square or packing a junior around in the Eq ring.

Cupid looks like a show pony. Telescope looks like a Warmblood.

Some more European stallions who entered stud this year:

Ardad (Overbury Stud, GB)

Time Test (National Stud, GB)
Image

Wings of Eagles (Haras de Montaigu, France)
Image

Pillar Coral (Anshoon Stud, Ireland)
Image

Berkshire (Haras de Sorelis, France)
Image

Storm the Stars (Haras du Lion, France) - wowza

Side note: all of these stallions have Sadler's Wells and/or Danehill in their pedigrees. European bloodstock has a serious bottleneck.

He is 16.3 hands. Their website says 16.0 1/2, but one of the booking guys quoted 16.3 as his actual height. They always seem to fudge. Uncle Mo is advertised as 16.3 and he's more like 17.0 1/2 or 17.1.

I don't think Miss Woodford was referencing his height, just the fact he looks like a fancy show horse :)

Storm the Stars is stunning. Berkshire is quite attractive, and showing a lot of his Arabian forefathers' looks.
If Europe is facing a Sadler's Wells (Northern Dancer) - Danehill (Danzig/Northern Dancer) bottleneck, are there some American stallions who would be a healthy outcross? Or is there just no getting away from Northern Dancer? :?
