Racehorse Set To Win Hearts with the One on Its Forehead

RacehorseA racehorse with an unusual heart-shaped mark on its head is set to make its debut in Hokkaido, it has been learned.

The one-year-old male horse, brought up at a stable in Hokkaido, is due to begin racing for the Hokkaido Keiba racing association next spring. The 500-kilogram equine has not yet been named.

It is common for horses to have white markings on their heads, but unusual for them to have a mark that is so clearly shaped like a heart.

"He's calmer than other horses and he's well-built physically. He's got plenty of potential," the horse's 43-year-old handler said.

Thanks, Krika !
