Hi Jorge, for the uninitiated of us, this filly's spotted sort-of-appaloosa look is springing from what going on in her genetics?

Her name is Buchiko and she is running in Japan.

This filly is supposedly being pointed to a gr. 3 next following her maiden special weight and allowance scores. She can run some!

Thanks for insight. She's definitely scenic to look at.

Thanks for bringing up this case.

Regardless of how spotted BUCHIKO's phenotype appears, she is a very stained white daughter
of the very immaculate white mare, Shirayukihime (by the solid colored Sunday Silence).
She is not an appaloosa nor any other painted genotype. She is white, that is, a very stained white.

BUCHIKO appears at:

By King Kamehameha (bay) out of Shirayukihime (white), by Sunday Silence

This is a very interesting white case, who is also producing talented runners.

Saw this guy on my Twitter feed. This is about as close to an Appaloosa pattern as I've ever seen in a TB. I can't even throw an educated guess as to what's going on here. His name is Buchiko, a 2-yo colt by King Kamehameha out of Shirayukihime (Sunday Silence). PQ says the dam is DW. The matching jackets steal the show.

thanks for explaining. She's so outside the norm in appearance, and apparently as real racing talent. It will be fun to follow her.

NEWS ON BUCHIKO!

Buchiko (white filly 2012; by King Kamehameha – Shirayukihime by Sunday Silence –Wave Wind)
arrived 14th (out of 17) in “The Tulip Sho”(Gr-3). She was among the leaders most of the race but
tired at the end when everybody was rushing late. But except for the last 1/16 of the distance she ran a good race.
The race was won by Kokorono.
The race can be seen at:
