Who is training him?

He reminds me of a horse I bought (but by New Approach) who also had a similar dam line. We gelded him too late, he was very top heavy, and we ended up with knee problems throughout his career. He was talented but unsound. I liked this one at the sales but he made too much for me - good luck with him!

My first thought upon seeing the picture was, he looks Storm Cat-ty.  Not at all surprised to see that he has both Storm Cat and Gone West on his damside.  The head and neck set that look kind of heavy, etc.

Good luck with him!

Agree with GAJ, also like his sloping shoulder and big rear end. Very strong all over. Built like a sprinter, look forward to seeing him race fit

I asked hubby to take a look, and he said “his tail could have been a bit longer” 🙄😁

In answer to comments/questions:

. is with Robbie Griffiths
. Robbie always does the jowl testas a matter of routine.

A prominent local trainer has a Dawn Approach 2yo colt, running on Monday at Ballina, He has a very high opinion of him, The colt is a heavy type too.
