I don't understand their photos. Bali cannot possibly be that light. Is he really? And why is his face turned like that?

That's just how Equisport shoots. I would've known who took that without their watermark.

Whenever I saw Bal a Bali on the track, he always impressed me as a very handsome horse. That photo is really unflattering.

Well, Coup de Grace was actually bred and raced in the USA, but you're right- there's something in their water.

These recent photos of Bandbox, Coup de Grace, Cupid and Race Day are evidence that Tapit really sires some fine-looking horses. Tapit himself is quite attractive, but IMHO many of his sons are even better physical specimens.
Either Tapit improves his mares, or his stallion managers have made a fine art of picking the right mares for him...or both. ;) 8-)

I think I'm in love with Sharkbite. What a hunk. <3
His very dark chestnut coloring appeals to me...wonder if his mane is red like his tail.

Sharkbite is a full brother to Scissor Kick who has a pic on here a bit earlier so comparing the two is interesting both are closely related to the Hasili family. Sharkbite was sold in a online auction a few months ago and I'm not certain what farm has picked him up
