Behind at the knee, turned out off side hind, narrow girth, high tail set, upright pasterns, poor natural muscling hind legs.
Be interested to see what he does, or doesn’t, do 
Sorry, not my type at all

Anyone notice that this one also has no heel in three of four?  So much so that the off front appears clubby.  Would be interested to see Hello Sunshine's appraisal of both this and the record braking Maurice youngster.

I bow to the better judgement of others second chance.
From experience a good horse comes in any shape, mostly.
Its whats inside that counts.....
You know, grit determination and heart.
And a decent trainer.

Ok, our third and final yearling purchase, a 2.5% share in Lot 101 Inglis Classic: colt by Xtravagant from Mussenden (Fastnet Rock).  Photo isn't great but like the way he walks.  Think the sire will make it, and couldn't resist at the price.  Any comments on his possible strengths and weaknesses would be appreciated.  Thumbs Up  

First impression from the still photo: still needs time.  His head and hindquarters look more mature than everything in between.  In particular he looks a bit short of rein, and the neck is usually one of the last things to grow out.  He's slightly offset in the left forefoot (the white one).  He toes out a bit in that foot, and in the right hind.  I agree that he's a mile-ish type.

Pedigree-wise, Zabeel over Carnegie mares has 12% G1W to foals.  He has Zabeel through Xtravagant's dam and Carnegie through his 2nd dam.  And for his immediate parents, his full brother has a win and a city placing in 5 starts (is spelling) and Xtravagant has 48% winners from runners as a 2nd crop sire.  Overall, lots of positives.  Good luck with him.

And his full brother wins in Adelaide today.  Star
