It the beauty and power of the horse ... in action.
Close up you can see the muscle ripple under the flesh.
The look in their eyes. That desire to just run.

Well, I guess that answers the questions about his stamina.
Great run

And Seattle slew had a turned out right front foot but it didn't stop him from developing a strong running style.
But...He was an ugly horse. Unfortunately.
He never sired a triple crown winner but his son Swale was a steaks winner.
This new guy is a real beauty. Chestnut (though I say bay), with a pale face.
Like Secretariat AKA big red. A very pretty bay.

After his mudding victories I wasn't sure he could do it, I stand corrected.

He didn't destroy the competition but the jockey ran a perfectly controlled race kudos all around.
