This is a horse of outstanding quality and excellent disposition with good flat bone, a fine shoulder and straight hind legs.  He raced until he was five years old and is free from any transmissible unsoundness.  

A glance at his pedigree shows him to be one of the best bred horses in America.  He combines the best blood-strains of this country, France and England.
