Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

Not anything flashy, but... this is about as textbook (and pretty) shade of blood bay you'll ever see, I reckon. :mrgreen: Full brother to Oju Chosan (JPN), this is Koki Chosan (Stay Gold x Shadow Silhouette).

Re: Racing in Japan

If he's not a standardbred someone's in for a rough ride later... :lol: (although I think they might have some trotting races that are under saddle too, IIRC)
