Maybe it’s emotional residue from one too many The Black Stallion viewings as a kid, but there’s just something about seeing an event horse the color of polished onyx that makes my heart skip a beat. And when their performance matches their tall, dark and handsome good looks … swoon.
Since it’s Black Friday, I put together a list of black (or, in some cases, technically dark brown, but for all practical purposes they look black) three- and four-star horses from the past five or so years. Who is the sexiest of them all? Let’s put it to a vote!
Before you slaughter me in the comments for leaving out your favorite black horse, keep in mind that the list is meant to be recent (sorry, Charisma!) and not all-inclusive — I’m just working off the top of my head, and said head is still running a bit slow from the all-day booze cruise that was Thanksgiving Day. But do feel free to write-in vote for other horses!
