2018 Black colt (Risque Remarque x Jazz Performer)

This spectacular colt is a True Black with the Frame Overo gene, putting him in an exclusive group of Thoroughbreds.  He is one of only 4 in the world who is homozygous black.  His sire is the Calumet Farm owned 16.3h Frame Overo Thoroughbred stallion, Risque Remarque, by Ellusive Quest.  He is by Sonny’s Solo Halo (unraced) by Halo. Halo is the sire of Sunny’s Halo ($1,247,791), and Preakness and Kentucky Derby winner Sunday Silence ($4,968,554). Sonny’s Solo Halo is out of Softly, the winner of $112,568 who has produced 100% winners to runners. Ellusive Quest’s racing career was cut due to the untimely death of his brother Racey Remarque. In a short race career Ellusive Quest ran fourth in his first career start, and had the fastest time out of 27 racehorses for official work at Turf Paradise as a three-year-old.

Ivory Key's dam looks as though she just stepped out of a stylized 18th century painting with her elegance, refinement, and captivating conformation.  Jazz Performer raced for five years and retired sound and a winner.  This colt is her second born, and he got her stunning looks, with the substance, power, and color of his sire.  He has an incredible head, with little ears, wide forehead, and short face, powerful hip, and unbeatable topline. Should mature 16.3 to 17.0h. He is a bit over 16.1 at age 2.

Coloured thoroughbreds, although rare, are not new. Overo thoroughbreds were documented to have occurred as early as the 1700s. An oil painting from 1790, which hangs in the Walker Art Gallery, in Liverpool, shows a coloured racehorse, King of Trumps, owned by King George III.
