Episode

  • In Japan, horses with chestnut body-hair and a golden mane and tail are called “尾花栗毛 (Obana-Kurige)”.
    尾花(Obana) means Miscanthus sinensis. (Wikipedia)
    栗毛(Kurige) means chestnut-hair.
    Horses with that trait are often seen as beautiful and good looking.
    Some examples include Gold City, Tosho Falco, Taiki Shutle and Toho Jackal.
  • Gold City was good looking and bad tempered from birth.
    Apparently his producers were thinking of donating him to Disney Land if his temperament prevented him from becoming a racehorse.
  • Here’s the result of a Google image search.
    Note that there are quite a few other factors as well.  (Gold City)
  • As for his bad tempered episodes, he woke up very late.
    And he got angry when he was woken up early.
