- This is the second one late I've seen from this nominator. :P Nominated ten days after expansion. That said, meh! I'm reviewing so there you go. Stop it in the future and be more timely in nominating! :P :D
- Article hook is properly formatted. Article was written on February 8 and appears on that date. Based on that and that there were at least 11 unreviewed DYKs above it, it is suitably new. Length of article checks out. Picture in article is public domain so no issues. Article reads as neutral enough to me.
- There were two sentences uncited. I just removed them and the article is still at length. Article thus is properly supported by inline citations.
- I've read and reread the supporting reference for the hook about four times. I am almost certain it supports the text in the article and the hook... but my knowledge of horses lineages is non-existent so I'm going to assume I am interpreting the source as supporting the text with "One of the most influential imported eastern stallions, he was probably of equal importance to the establishment of the stud book as were the Byerley Turk, the Darley Arabian, and the Godolphin Arabian."
- Forgot to verify plagiarism looked for. :( here, here, here, here. No causes for concern.
Good to go. --LauraHale
