Flashy Australian thoroughbred colt Paint Us A Picture has come out a winner in his second trial, running a 970m two-year-old sprint at Callaghan Park on October 8 in 59.35 seconds.

Trained by John Pointon, the overo son of Profile in Style and Coldstream Candy was a comfortable winner. Coldstream Candy, by Thameen, is a chestnut mare with rabicano ticking throughout her flanks, barrel and rump.

She has two other coloured foals by the same sire, Frame and Fortune (2011) and Frameous (2012).

Paint Us A Picture’s sire Profile in Style is a frame overo, who was imported from the USA in 2008 by Winning Colours Farm in NSW. There are only a handful of thoroughbreds in the world with this gene, according to stud owner Peta Oxenbridge.

Profile In Style is registered with the Australian Stud book and is a full thoroughbred with what is known as a ‘crop out’ colour gene.  His sire Ellusive Quest is by Sonny’s Solo Halo (unraced) by Halo.  Ellusive Quest’s racing career was cut due to the untimely death of his brother Racey Remarque.

Profile In Style’s dam Dance Dub L is sired by Shantariat (by Secretariat). She is out of Dance Spot, a coloured mare with winnngs of $US47,925. Dance Spot is also the dam of the overo thoroughbred stallion I Was Framed (by Racey Remarque), who stands at stud in Ireland.
