On Sysonby’s overstep and propulsion

Sysonby was a horse with tremendous leverage in his hind legs. Few horses do more than slightly overstep the imprint of the front feet, whereas the imported son of Melton completely cleared it, indication enough of the great propulsion he possessed in the rear.”
(Leonard W. Collins / The Washington Post, 04/28/1929)
