Camera angle really can make all the difference. I think the conformation photo was not taken at the most flattering angle for Australia.

Camelot has a very desert breed kinda neck and head, makes me think of akhal-teke and less thoroughbred. Pretty though.

Cape Blanco does a good quarter horse impression with that stocky build and barrel. Hunk of a horse is right,

Verrazano has a nice round bum like my friend's super talented jumper. He's definitely a nice looking horse, and has a very unique and colourful coat.

Verazzano is attractive, but I am more drawn to Kingsbarns.

Verazzano is very handsome. But is it just me or does he have swollen fetlocks?

I wish people would stop pin-firing horses. A lot of vets do not believe it does anything at all. While I am not a vet, I can't imagine that inserting burning needles into a leg is going to fix it.

I have seen a horse turned out in a paddock after it was done, and he was fat-legged and moving REALLY slow. I also think it is cruel. But, I have also read that it speeds up healing and toughens them up in that spot.
If it is on the shin like that, was it for bucked shins? I've seen it on the inside on the splint bone too.

Pletcher clearly believes in pin-firing.

Many seem to be adverse to it nowadays unless the horse is chronic.

Ah, had a feeling he was going to stud- he is very handsome.

I looked over at El Turf and cant seem to locate a listing for him- still in Argentina?

Yeah, it looks like he entered stud in September 2014 at Haras La Catedral in Argentina.

Good bone in Indy Point's legs. Compare his legs with Chuck Berry's. :?

I love Indy Point. I was super disappointed he retired.
