The colt, Paint Us A Picture, is a two-year-old horse who always gets a couple of glances when people realize he’s a Thoroughbred and plans to race. He has already hit the racing scene and is drawing a great deal of attention. To look at him, he is a good looking colt to be sure. He is also a registered Thoroughbred and a horse of a different color – he is a Paint. The colt has shown some racing promise and is making a name for himself.
Paint Us A Picture is a rare overo Thoroughbred colt. Bred by Winning Colours Farm in Queensland, Paint Us A Picture won his first start – a 970 meter barrier trial on October 8 at Callaghan Park. The 970 meters translate to running four furlongs or 180 yards.
The horse’s followers had no trouble finding him in the run, and as the colt crossed the line in front, it met with the biggest cheer of the day.
There are not many Paint Thoroughbreds in the world. Germany has Silvery Moon and the writer wrote about him in the article “Silvery Moon is a colorful overo Thoroughbred racehorse.”
Paint Us A Picture is by the stallion Profile in Style out of Coldstream Candy, by Thameen. Both sire and dam of Paint Us A Picture were bred in the United States. The blood of some well-known Thoroughbreds run through the colt’s veins such as Halo, Secretariat and Roberto.
The young racehorse is training in Queensland with John Pointon.
