He's a beauty, that's for sure. I see the "rash" also. Looks like hives, doesn't it? He has a lovely head, and a beautiful eye. He's a great candidate for winning the TC. So much to overcome though; hope he stays sound, and has racing luck in his campaign. As he's racing down the track with his hood on, he looks like a superhero. I've loved him for awhile now, but there's nothing that looks like Big Red. Look at those straight hind legs, that deep, deep chest, that big behind, with the extra muscle running down beside his tail. And last, but not least, that gorgeous head, those wonderful jowls, that huge neck! Everything about him screamed "speed and endurance". Equine perfection. But CC is pretty close.
Never said he had a skin condition, all I said is that if it IS hives I hope he got some itch relief after the race.

I think Dancing with Fate's win today highlighted CC's outstanding abilities. He does seem to have a special "air" about him, doesn't he?
