Looking at hip 2489 in the Kee sale today, he had four nice white stockings, but he is a bay. It got me to thinking as to whether that was rare or not. When I think of 4 white, I think of chestnuts.

any thoughts?

Positively, Hip No. 2489 is officially registered as a "bay".
Will try to see her video. It's by Tale of Ekati out of Cumulus, by Kingmambo. http://apps.keeneland.com/sales/Sep13/pdfs/2489.pdf

Take a look to a similar looking (I imagine) half brother to Super Saver

The interesting about 2489 was that his were pretty full stockings. Very striking really - worth picking up just for you connoisseurs of color.

Thank you so much for finding this photo.
Hmm, interesting leg markings with a more
conservatively marked head.

It would be interesting to go back through the pedigree and see where she got the bling, particularly this much, while being a bay. I seem to recall other breeds having bay/dark coloration and white stockings, but not so much the tbs.

Tale of Ekati (Bay h 2005) http://www.pedigreequery.com/tale+of+ekati

The upper half of this pedigree (Tale of Ekati) with names such as Storm Cat, What A Pleasure, Sunday Silence and Nijinsky are well-known producers of white leg markings and atypical markings

As per Cumulus (dkb/br m 2004) http://www.pedigreequery.com/cumulus10 , note that Storm Bird (sire of Storm Cat) The Minstrel, plus 3 doses from Northern Dancer are sufficiently powerful doses to expect a lot of color.

Regarding the presence of the "bay" color, lets not forget that Storm Cat was a dark bay or brown horse who tended to produce many chestnuts with high leg markings BUT ALSO tended to produce a good share of dark bays with leg markings. When high leg markings appears, normally it is associated with the "chestnut" color but lets not forget that Northern Dancer
himself was "bay" not a "chestnut". In other words, having a "bay" with high leg markings is not necessarily the norm but not necessarily that rare though specifically within this lineage.
