in the The Foal Session is locally talked about; perhaps, the colt might fetch $2m because this is the first time that a sibling of the past 6 triple crown winners in Japan has been up on auction lists. His conformation really looks like his brother.July 3, 2009 at 07:55 #237532

2. $1.24m: Deep Impact x Lotta Lace (Nureyev); half-brother to Fusaichi Pandora (Sunday Silence)

Great photos; why does horse number 1 look so much more mature than the others? I would love to be able to look at a horse and know about conformation etc but, alas, it’s beyond me.July 17, 2009 at 18:28 #239928highjumperMember
