Working I will attempt to complete this review within the next few days. Grondemar 04:43, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

This article looks very good, even if it is a little short and could use a picture of two. In my mind it meets the good article criteria, except for a couple of prose concerns I'd like addressed before I pass the article:

  • "Curtner, who bought Pretty Rosalie also, had originally intended to purchase a daughter of Blackburn and a filly by Poco Bueno, but instead ended up purchasing something totally different. While still at the sale, Curtner was approached by two employees of Waggoner's, both informing Curtner that in their opinion, he'd bought the best mare in the sale. " I'm confused. Which horse did he end up buying? Poco Pine's mother? Perhaps this could be phrased differently.
  • I've attempted a rewrite of this, let me know if it still needs tweaking. Ealdgyth - Talk 15:15, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
  • "One of the employees, Pine Johnson, Waggoner's trainer, also felt that Poco Pine was the best Poco Bueno colt he'd ever seen. Because of Johnson's praise for the colt, Curtner decided to register the foal as Poco Pine." I assume that the "Poco Pine" mentioned in the first sentence is the subject of the article, and not some other horse named Poco Pine that the subject of the article was named after? Assuming we're talking about one horse here, perhaps there's a way to phrase this where Poco Pine isn't called by that name before he is actually named "Poco Pine"?
  • Changed to "felt that the colt was the ..." instead.Ealdgyth - Talk 15:15, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Breeding career—Did you mean Poco Pine instead of Poco Bueno?
