Fair point, it's based on when they're born so he probably is technically and since it's a breeding question I assume SA was looking into bloodlines.

Denman is definitely a Chestnut. Darker ones like him are called Liver Chestnuts. Dr Leunt was another pretty good chestnut chaser and going back a while, so were Flyingbolt and Salmon Spray.

Jan, you need to look up the definitions of horse colour. Bay and Brown horses have black manes and tails, greys have grey tails and chestnuts have brown tails.

Does anyone remember Celtic Cone from the early 70s,I remember him falling at the last then getting up to win I think it was the Players No6 hurdle final,a very tough little horse who later went on to be a very good jump stallion.He was also a good stayer on the flat 2nd in the Ascot Gold Cup.

^^^^^^ He was the darkest liver chestnut I've ever seen the shade of an old penny coin.

National winner Red Marauder was a chestnut under all that mud.

Nortons Coin, Noddys Ryde, Tingle Creek, Badsworth Boy, Bobsline, Barrowline, Cocaine, Ryde Again, Golden Cygnet, Bregawn, Morley Street, but no I don't quite remember Celtic Cone running but I do remember him at stud, quite an unlikely sire wasn't he (I don't think he'd get a look in today!)

I don't know if he would,but I do remember him at the H in T sale at tatts,And what may surprise you is who was there to buy him and if they got their hands on him he would of been CH sire many times,as it was he stayed in England but did really well and never covered large books, but was always in the mix for the sires title,Deep Run always held him but look in comparison at the size of that stallions books.
IMO he was one of those very rare horses who had a real will to win he was a very tough horse.His trainer told me that when he trained him for the Ascot Gold Cup,he had not got a horse fast enough for him to work with over the trip so he had a relay of sprinters in place to jump in every 5 furlongs to keep the work going when they finished the piece of work Celtic Cone both barrelled the last horse,that is what I call a very determined horse.

Interesting background and I love a horse that sticks it's neck out. It's always interesting to try and guess just how much that mental toughness adds to the mix - plenty in my opinion. After all brilliance is hard to find and for the rest of us, human or equine, graft is what we've got to go to war with.

Flyingbolt, arguably 2nd top rated chaser ever, was a chestnut.
