Trainer Comments: Nice Type of Horse Who Does Everything Right Now & Has No Issues Whatsoever, Though Used To Play Up A Bit & Got A Few Embargoes Earlier Because of It, Though Has Now Fully Matured & I Have No Problems With Him At All 🙂 Has Good Ability & Will Win More Races But His Owner Has Too Many Horses, So Well Worth A Go At This Amount Where You Would Only have To Place 2nd In A Race To Get Out of Him

Photogenic Is By “More Than Ready” & Is Out of A “Encosta de Lago” Mare, So With This Breed Being Well Renowned Late Maturer’s Anyway, Then It Doesn’t Get Much Better Bred Than That Let Me Tell Ya & Now That He Has Fully Matured, Someone Will Have A Lot of Fun With Him for Sure!!!

One Things for Sure As “Photogenic” Is No Doubt Photogenic & Will Definitely Give His Rivals Something To Catch!!!
