Horse of a Different Color Turning Heads in Europe
Silvery Moon, a 2-year-old Thoroughbred colt racing in France and Germany, is turning heads on the race course – and it's not due to his ability (yet, anyway).
The colt, a rare overo Thoroughbred, has made two starts, most recently finishing second by a neck in a maiden race in Germany. Silvery Moon was purchased by his owner, Stall Paint Horse, from the 2012 Arqana Autumn sale in November for €12,000. Stall Paint Horse even had silks made to match those of Silvery Moon's markings.
Silvery Moon is by the stallion I Was Framed and is out of Artzola, by Alzao. I Was Framed, an 11-year-old stallion by Racey Remarque, stands in France and is registered with both The Jockey Club and the American Paint Horse Association.
Silvery Moon is trained by Mario Hofer.
