Brave Smash is a good-looking stallion...and kudos to Aquis Farms for not Photoshopping out his lead line, which far too many farms feel the need to do. :roll:

It is interesting that he's their only stallion with a photo that hides his hooves :?

Oh man, there's a blast from the past. I had a little stuffed Tokai Teio that I got when I was in Japan at age 10. My dad won him for me in an arcade.

Santos is a beautiful horse.

Lovely!
Tokai Teio is one of our most beloved thoroughbreds all time. :D

And Brave Smash(JPN) is the first great-grandson of Sunday Silence to win a G1 outside of Japan!

Gainesway shared this one of Tapwrit recently. I assume this will be his official one posted eventually.

I don't love the way Tapwrit looks. Maybe it's the way his spots/dapples fall, but his shoulder muscles look weak.
AP, on the other hand, looks like he could be ready to go back into training with very little work. What a perfect TB. :D

Still a stunning horse. Looks every inch a Triple Crown winner.

He looks gorgeous! He was a nice-looking racehorse, but is even better as a mature stallion.
I hope more breeders give this grey son of Giant's Causeway a try. His daughter Significant Form winning the Ballston Spa should raise his profile.

I like him too. His grade I-winning son Pavel is still running, even if he hasn't done anything of note lately.

Not really liking the way Tapwrit looks in the pic either, but he could fill out nicely after a couple of years.

I do really like his coat though. Very pretty snowflake pattern!

Ye gods. I don’t know which is worse: the terrible Photoshopping or the awful posture.
