Is European Champion 3yo Sprinter even a category? No sprinter trained in Europe won more than one G1 in 2018... and I believe him and Sands of Mali were the only 3 year olds to win an open G1 sprint. Biiiiiiit of a stretch there in the marketing department. I would say that he was tough as hell before calling him a 3 year old champion of any kind.

The only sprinter to win more than 2 G1s was Jungle Cat, and despite being trained in England, he won his G1s in Dubai and Australia.
I have a feeling they mean the Timeform rating

Maybe it's just me, and I'm no professional, but I like the casual shot better. :-p
Me too, but either way, he's a nice looking animal.

I always thought Iron Fist was attractive, but I didn't realize what an Arabian look his head has. Very wedge, with a small muzzle.
Mean Season is pretty (and very shiny), but those front feet... :? Long toes with very short heels.
IIRC, his racing career was cut short, and I wonder if his maybe-not-so-wonderful feet has something to do with that?

Wow....Honestly they used a black edit tool to just scratch out the lead and hope no one noticed. And what did they do to the horse's muzzle/mouth area???

Looks like what happens if a star gets a truly awful lip treatment.

Is IHA so badly over at the knee that they couldn't get a single photo of him standing straight? :?

Here's another photo for comparison. A candid one from TDN.

Wasn't he retired due to leg injury?
