Quindici Man delivers The Look.

Among Laura’s latest photos this morning I was wowed by this one of Quindici Man, just as a really striking picture.

Too bad he’s so muddy, I thought. If he was clean I’d have uses for that photo on OF materials. Then I realized it’s the lines of the mud, the trees, and his mane that make the photo. Without the mud it wouldn’t be nearly as dramatic.

So I thought the blog would be a good place to share it. If you like the look, you might be interested in seeing exactly how accomplishes it.

First it takes some thinking out.

Go for it!

Yeah, that ought to about get it.

Flaunting it.

Since many of you haven’t had a chance to meet Quindici Man yet, let me introduce him. He’s a 17 year old son of Came Home. He raced mostly on the West Coast and at 3 won the Pomona Derby at Fairplex, Jack Coady, Sr. Stakes at Turf Paradise, and Zia Park Derby, and at 4 the Bull Dog Stakes at Fresno. He also finished second and third in more prestigious graded stakes races. His biggest performance was in the 2011 Santa Anita Handicap where he ran third to no less than Game On Dude. Though he couldn’t catch the Dude, he outran some very fast horses that day. He went to stud in California and stood for a modest fee at Firth Ranch in Hemet until he was pensioned in 2022 and came to live with us.

Here he is cleaner and very handsome. This is his share photo. It’s by Mary Greene.

  1. Very handsome indeed, dirty OR clean … and obviously one who knows the exact steps to get that mud and stuff placed “justly so” along his gorgeous head and neck.
