Since I have followed racing pretty religiously for the past few years and worked at several different tracks, I was curious how many of you knew the racing background of your OTTBs. If so, would you mind sharing? Who knows - maybe I'll recognize an old friend!

There was a thread under the Racing forum - I believe called TBs I have known - that has an extensive list of OTTBs.

We've had three here: Be Mine Tonight (97), Enchanted Table (86) and Run for Charlie (78 and still going strong!!)

My 17 yo stallion's registered name is Lose That; he was bred in FL, raced in NH and MA for four years. In the money 18 out of 44 races IIRC. Sire Pass the Line (Northern Dancer g'son) and dam Wajima's Lady (by Wajima).

My 7 yo mare's name is Skedaddle Fast by Navarrone o/o Fairly Fast by Fast Play. Raced once at 4 (took her that long to get broke out of the gate properly, apparently!). "Outrun".

My 8 yo mare Big Queen by Big Sal out of Revived Partez. Raced mostly in PA I believe. Something like 80 races, in the money probably half the time. Not big money but steady little tiny purses, I guess the owners just liked seeing their names on the form!

You probably wouldn't know mine, but I'll jump on any chance to tell someone about my boy! :)

My guy raced only 6 times, I believe all starts were at Hoosier Park. He's a little (15.3-16.0ish) gray TB, raced under the name Greyrose. He's by Pistols and Roses and out of Longtown Ms. He only raced as a 3yr old (so in 2000).

My horse is Aggressive Brass, a 1994 model. Out of Aggressive Lady by Dixie Brass. He came off Suffolk Downs at age 10, although I think he was used as a pony for a while too. His nickname is Spud. :D I loff him.:yes:

I don't think I've met anyone who DOESN'T know their TB's Jockey Club name. :)

Funny Story: I worked on the track (Monmouth Park) in high school and one of my horses was called "Rugby Al". A year later, I was in college 650 miles away and dated a guy who was from Philadelphia. We got to talking about horse racing and he told me about a trip he'd made with his buddies to Monmouth Park the summer before where they had all won a big trifecta starring a long shot named....you guessed it...Rugby Al! :) They were so excited with their winnings that they remembered the horse that made it possible--he was something like a 50:1 shot who WON and paid off a huge trifecta which they had played simply for the "lucky number". :)

Mine's racing name was Keles. She's a 1999 chestnut TB mare, and raced in pennsylvania a few times, I think she won two races. Then she got rehomed through CANTER (someone from Chronicle was actually interested in her I found out by googling her name!) and ended up in CT and eventually up here with me in MA :)

Yep, the first thing we do is get their pedigree and race records. It's fun knowing who they "were". We get win photo's too!

What track do you work at?

My mare is Retrieve the Gold (2000) is a NY bred mare by Our Emblem out of Varsity Gold by Transworld. She had 44 starts and won 94K, mostly at Charlestown WV, racing for 4 years. I got her as a CANTER owned horse one week after her last race, a year ago.

You can see her progress over the past 14 months through the link in my signature.

Joeski (my older guy) and Ruester Roo (my new guy). Not sure if the first one is actually right - his tattoo is a bit blurry, but the racing history seems to fit. Still waiting on the jockey club records for Ruester.

I have to add, Ruester came from the BEST trainer up in PA, my instructor got a few from her as well and let me say - all those horses are in great shape (mentally, condition wise, and physically) though they had some OTTB issues, naturally. Joeski, on the other hand... mental! (but sweet, which is all that really matters :D)

Rainy's Boy - 1993 gelding - 75 starts, 9 wins. Raced from a 2yo to 11yo... LONG time and legs of steel. Never been lame a day in his life. Louisiana bred - raced Fairgrounds, Delta Downs, Evangaline, and one other place... don't remember where.

He's my dream horse. He loves people, hates apples, always game to try anything, WAY too smart for his own good, and jumps me out of the tack... HUGE jump. He's mine until the day he dies.

DEFINITELY remember Be Mine Tonight. He was a NY horse and I'm pretty sure he won a stakes race? Don't remember the Hoosier baby but I was Pistols and Roses' hotwalker in 1992 at Gulfstream!
Wow. I am old...:eek:

Where did Unconscious Bets race? I have a 9-year-old gelding who ran in Northern California briefly. A lot of good OTTB eventers come out of Norcal - St. James Place and Hallowed Envoy to name a couple.

You knew Pistols and Roses??? That's awesome! :) I don't know anything about him really, but all of the babies I've seen online by him look just like my Jelly. I found one of Jelly's sisters last year that looked EXACTLY like him (1/2 sister).

Just out of curiosity, how was his temperment? (If you even remember). Sometimes I wonder how much of Jelly's *former* craziness was due to his history and how much is in his blood. He's the most mellow horse in the barn now. Just wondering what that sire was like... I might look for another by him when it's time :)

My guy's name was/is Roman Gladiator by Roman Mombo out of Eskimo Delight. I event him under that name, too. He was born April 11, 2000. I doubt you know him, but I'm still gonna talk about him. He raced 47 times and won 3, came in second in 1, and came in third in 1. The last time he won was in March '05 and we got him in Dec '05 from Beulah Park in Ohio. I believe he raced a little over a week before we got him. I love him to death!!

Here is a link to a website where you can find videos of your horses' races. You have to sign up I think, though. Unfortunately, it doesn't show all of them, I'm kind of mad that they took off the races of him winning, but, being geeky and wanting to save them, we recorded them off our computer screen with our video recorder (shhh, don't tell;)) I'll see if I can dig it up and show you my guy really showing off (he comes from behind)

Doubt you would know mine, but I'll play too. His name was Sir Bigun, is a 1991 baby, born in Washington state, raced in Northern California and Arizona for 5-6 years. He was never a star, but won a couple of races, one of which was an allowance race at Bay Meadows. Had several seconds/thirds. Was claimed 5 or 6 times. Ended up with me when he was 10, after being off the track for 3 years, is now my training level event star! (star to me anyway ;) .....) I did change the name, however, someone pointed out to me that it sounded like a porn-star name. :)

Wow. I am old...:eek:

Yes - Be Mine Tonight won one of the New York Stallion Stakes races at Belmont. He is a smallish chestnut gelding with a snip. Bred, owned and raced by the late PG Johnson who also trained Volponi. Quite an impressive pedigree as well. (not that it mattered) We had him here for several years - jumping fool, but the dressage was never his cup of tea and he was a hard horse to ride. We still own him, he is leased to a young lady in Massachusetts who wanted to try to sort him out - and unfortunately old "track damage" caught up with him and he is now enjoying life as a pasture ornament up there. My son evented him here under the name Bossa Nova.

And now for a round of "it's a small world after all". . . .

Ive gotten all mine from Philly Park:

1) Mt Colebrook (Mt Magazine x Chez Chez), I sold him after he got to training level to a YR that took him advanced. He has been sold to a teen that is doing the jumpers.

2) Punch Landed (Two Punch x Waquoit Landing), he did beg novice but was better suited for the hunters which he is currently doing

3) L Ratt (Foligno x Erika L), he went novice then I sold him to a woman that did some eventing but mostly jumpers. He unfortunately died this year from complications of colic surgery.

4) Lazer Sword (Sword Dance x Stem), he is going training but we are hopefully going to make a switch to the jumpers. I will most likely have him forever

5) Reigle Kali Ko Var (Patton x Accumulate), he is started in work, never raced, will most likely be sold as a hunter.

I'm leasing an older OTTB now -- R.Huey, a 1988 model who's still going strong! He did his last ** at 17 and still jumps around like 3'6" fences are nothing :winkgrin: I don't know much about Huey's racing life, except that he had something like 60 starts, and I'd guess he came from somewhere in Maryland...

He's quite an old model, but if anyone knew anything about him, that'd be pretty neat :D

So Slow Coyote is a OTTB who came from the Suffolk race track in Boston, but was bred in Florida. He is 13, and has only refused 6 times in the 9 years that I have owned him. And, he is doing 3-4th level dressage work.

I have seen a couple of other Coyote OTTBs mentioned in the eventing world.

Our girl was TX bred and raced. She ran a grand total of 3 races, kind of... From what I understand, they took her off the track after the 3rd race in which she refused to come out of the starting gate. She just stood there and watched the pack run! Obviously not a racer but man does she love cross country!

My guy's a 1988 NY bred grandson of Graustark named Valuable Asset. BARF!! He raced on the flat as a two- and three-year-old, then over fences as a five-year-old.
His barn name is Tigger, because just like the song says, he's "bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun."

The horse I am priviledged enough to "borrow" once a week is a 19 yr old 16.3H dark bay named "Takeashot don". He was from Nebraska, no idea where he raced but he did earn around $90K I believe. He is an Alydar grandson.

From Suffolk Downs via CANTER: bay mare Golden Bangle (now Jane Deere: She needed to leave the track that day, and our only open stall was the tractor shed!).

From Delaware Park, Tim Ritchie's stable, Darcy Kino.

After not riding much this summer, took both out for an XC school yesterday (Darcy's first!), and they were both foot perfect even to the ditch.

Many years ago bought a TB stallion from UConn for $500 named Take the Plunge, grandson of Rock Talk. We evented him Prelim, and after an injury retired him back to his breeder where they field hunted him. He had incredibly good manners and wonderful athleticism.

Dodging Traffic, 2001 gelding I got through CANTER PA this February. We just completed our first starter horse trial last weekend! :)

Grubby Soldier, 2000 gelding we got through CANTER MA two years ago. Took some time off to settle and grow feet and heading to his first horse trial next week.

Advancing Dawn, 1997 gelding, my husband's current event horse. Apparently not much of a racehorse but just a wonderful eventer. I love this horse - a true gentleman. And believe me, when you're watching your dear husband get ready to do his first Prelim event you really want to love and trust the horse he's riding. ;)

And I agree with Deltawave - most folks I know event OTTBs and most of them, if not all of them, know the race records and pedigrees of their horses. It's nice to have so much history, even if it is just on paper, on the horse you're riding.

The only one that is registered with the JC in the U.S. -- Southern Shuffle (Dixieland Band x Darby Shuffle) He trained in KY, raced in Texas, Ohio and NM/AZ. Came to me through his guardian angel on COTH -- Lord Helpus.

My other U.S. OTTB raced in such a backwoods bushtrack circuit, he ran against QHs and they never turned in his JC papers, but he is Repeat Offender (Taylor Quigley x Cuivre River). I have the paperwork to register him, but at five, it was going to cost $2500 and I'd just gelded him, so I didn't see the point. He has two babies by QH mares and I sort of hoped their owners would split the cost of doing it, so that their babies would be registered Appendix, but they never would commit the $, so he is still unregistered. (And, no, I did NOT breed a TB stallion with crooked legs and no papers! That happened before he came to me!)

And, Taz is NZTB "Kotare Legend" (Pandemonium x Kotari Girl) who evented in NZ as The Wylie Coyote.

Knowing their histories is really cool! :)

Ours is fun b/c he's really well bred.

Sphinx - Kris S. x Inreality Star by Inreality

Inreality Star threw Breeders cup and Eclipse winner Meadow Star and Optic Nerve.

Kris S. produced something like 60 million in winnings, five breeders cup winners, three eclipse winners... notables include Action this day, Rock Hard 10, Brocco, Hollywood Wildcat, Symboli Kris S (two time japan horse of the year and 8 million dollar winner), Prized, Kissin Kriss, Dr Fong and Soaring Softly (Among others).

We didn't know anything a/b him when we went to buy him... no name, no nothing. He didn't win much, but he's got MAJOR work ethic.. .and looks pretty to boot ;)

So cool. I do remember a lot of the names posted here.
Pistols and Roses was very kind and professional to handle on the track. He was very alert and always had his head at the stall door watching the action outside. I don't recalled him ever biting or trying to be naughty; he was definitely my favorite horse in that barn (other than a darling mare named Timely Kris).
I went to visit Pistols in Kentucky a few times (before they moved him to Florida). As a stallion he was a little nippy but still pretty easy to handle. They even let me hand graze him on a windy day!

Soes Ahead...If I recall, he was a 91 model, who started his career at Belmont. However, Soes Ahead was never ahead, and lost his first race by 20+ lengths. He spiraled downward from there, never living up to his name, and ended up at Mountaineer in WV, which is where we came in. He was by the NY stallion, Titanic.

He was a lovely event horse, who went by the show name A2/C Riley (the a2/c refers to the air force's 'airman 2nd class,' which is written on my dad's old Air Force footlocker from when he enlisted. My dad loaned me the money to buy the horse, so I gave him a little kudos for the help in the horse's name. His barn name was Riley when I got him, so that's why the 'Riley' part of the name.

I'll play-we have 2.

Hoja en Blanco. 2000 grey gelding by Always Silver (grey, 1989) out of Sitzmarkett (bay, 1988). Foaled in Florida. He never actually raced as he had a serious aversion to the start gates. I fear he paid dearly for that decision for he is covered with scars and has some interesting mental issues:eek:He is the kindest horse in the world but sometimes the loose screw starts winging around inside his head. We love him to death and continue breaking our hearts over him bc he is so dear. He is also extreeeeemely talented and a gorgeous mover. If only we could get to the bottom of him!

Too Many Numbers. 2003 Chestnut gelding by Numerous (bay, 1991) out of Lady Trilogy (dark bay, 1991) Ran twice for a total of $380 :)

I would like to know more about mine. His name was Acey (speedy nijinsky x vivid stanton). He was bred in Kansas breeder Verne Rutledge 1997. He has nothing listed as a race record on his papers - is there some place to look that up? I bought him in NJ in 2005. He is listed as a bleeder.

I just finished the book Horse Heaven and I am wondering more about his time at the track. How can I found out where he raced?

Mine was named "Modest Man" born in 1998 I think, he's 9 now (i think)?
I've had him for close to 4 years now,
He only won 1 race but he wonc close to 50K he got a lot of 2nd and 3rds.
He's lived in more states than I've ever been too. And he was sold for cheap at several sales, I think the most was like 30,000. He was Ky bred.
And He ran the best on Turf!
I would love to find a pic of him racing or his only win photo... but I have no idea how to find one.

My horse's racing name is G.R. Ranger.

Somehow he became known as Martin - and is registered with USEA as Martin (via a previous owner.) And, well it just fits him so well - so he shows as Martin.

But I have his papers as G.R. Ranger - don't most people get the JC name through the papers? His tatoo is on his brand inspection too - they use it as a distinguishing marking.

My horses name is Just a Devil, and he is anything but a Devil. He is so wonderful to ride and really tries hard to do whatever you ask of him. He won about $90,000 on the track and won some decent allowance races and earned a 101 speed figure. I can't believe that I was actually able to get a horse as nice as he is.

:eek: You had Noche? Did you buy him from someone in Hillsborough??

I just read the rest of the thread and see that he must be the same horse! I'm the reason he was in NC in the first place! :cool:

What track injuries caught up with him? Front? IIRC he had some small ossolets...not sure what else. He was a cutie though.

The person you got him from is a good friend of mine. :) Samll world. :cool:

So cool. I do remember a lot of the names posted here.
Pistols and Roses was very kind and professional to handle on the track. He was very alert and always had his head at the stall door watching the action outside. I don't recalled him ever biting or trying to be naughty; he was definitely my favorite horse in that barn (other than a darling mare named Timely Kris).
I went to visit Pistols in Kentucky a few times (before they moved him to Florida). As a stallion he was a little nippy but still pretty easy to handle. They even let me hand graze him on a windy day!

Aw, that is so great to hear! :) Sounds like he's a lot like Jelly. Jelly has ALWAYS had the most amazing ground manners of any horse I've ever dealt with. And such a kind little spirit. I kinda always figured his nervousness (which was only under saddle and in work) was more due to his experiences and quirkiness that I wasnt' able to tap into for a while. He's practically a saint now. I've always wanted to get another Pistols baby, and esp now that I know he was a kind horse (so probably passed it to jelly and his other babies) I may look for one!!!

You made my day! Thanks for sharing!

Hmmmm,

I've got a horse now that is out of Alstar Baby, who is by Baby King out of Comet Chaser. The later two raced and did well, so the JC papers tell me.

I also rode a mare who was out of Odds by Well Mannered. I rode alot of progeny of Well Mannered, who apparently didn't run fast but made great eventers/dressage horses...

:eek: You had Noche? Did you buy him from someone in Hillsborough??

I just read the rest of the thread and see that he must be the same horse! I'm the reason he was in NC in the first place! :cool:

What track injuries caught up with him? Front? IIRC he had some small ossolets...not sure what else. He was a cutie though.

The person you got him from is a good friend of mine. :) Samll world. :cool:



In a round about way. He went to Caroline Dowd's and at the time my son was riding with her. He was here at our farm about two years. Had some real hoof issues that took my farrier almost the entire time he was here to get sorted out. He was a very tough ride in the dressage ring, although very solid XC and stadium. He spent about ten months with Torrance Watkins after we decided that he was not the right horse for the YP, and a friend of Torrance's and mine took him to Massachusetts for her student.

I am not exactly clear what the issue was, as we never had any front end soundness issues with him - they had the right front fetlock injected and I understand it was questionable as to whether he would go back to work. He does have a great home, and a great retirement place if he doesn't go sound.

Where did Unconscious Bets race? I have a 9-year-old gelding who ran in Northern California briefly. A lot of good OTTB eventers come out of Norcal - St. James Place and Hallowed Envoy to name a couple.

Wow sorry, I totally missed this! He raced on central/norther california tracks for the most part (the cheap tracks, no bay meadows or anything). Sacramento, santa rosa, fresno, and others.

Here's what I have at home right now. They all came from the North Cal tracks. I try and talk with their old trainers when I can, they seem to like hearing their old warriors are living the good life.

Patrick's Slew (1997 Slewpy X Ms Bop Out 31 lifetime starts 5-2-8) he had the best record of any of my horses as he started his career down in So. Cal. breaking his maiden at Hollywood Park. He had fantastic connections, he was trained by Doug O'Neill and owned by two of Doug's brothers. Well let's say he never became a Lava Man and ended up in northern Cal. Raced until he was 7 and retired sound.

Puff of Smoke (2003 Comic Strip X Cinder Girl 12 lifetime starts 2-0-1) sweetest horse that acts far older then his years, how he lasted a year on the track is beyond me. Started in Greg Gilchrist barn and went downhill from there. Russell Baze remembers him as the horse that fell on his nose in his first outing. Yes, thats the Puff man (sigh).

Fu Man Slew (2002 Corslew X Squire Out Front 23 lifetime 2-3-3) he retired due to a slab fracture but one of his old trainers got a hold of him as he was heading to a really ugly ending. He sent him to me and now it's 7 months post surgery and he's sound. Thee coolest horse ever born, which is why his old trainer kept tabs on him, he also knew he had a sucker in me and I would spend the time and the money to rehab him.

Love my OTTB's. I have my eyes on another one I'm trying to get a hold of when he retires. It's kind of addicting :lol:

I loved your FIRST namesake...
He was a dark bay gelding who raced in SoCal. Was a minor stakes horse and REALLY fast. A good friend of mine trained him for awhile until he got claimed away. He started having physical problems, we tried to buy him but were turned down, and he wound up breaking a hind leg in a race. Horrible, just horrible.
Did your guy ran at Los Al by any chance or in NorCal? I do remember seeing there was another Fu Man running a while back and was surprised the name was available so soon.

my one horse Oz raced as Insterburg, he was born in '95, his sire is Woodman, and his dam is Lasting Secret. i had his jockey club papers at one point, but they got put in a 'safe place' and i'm not sure where that safe place is. I *think* he broke his maiden, but am not positive.

my other one Quincy is Ever Cat'n, he was also born in '95, his sire is Mountain Cat(by Storm Cat) and his dam is Wajima Street(by Wajima), he broke his maiden, but that is about all i know.

where can you get all their old info and win pictures(if they won)???

I happen to know R.Huey a bit because I know his owner. He was from one of the first crops of Time for a Change who was a vey well bred Phipps horse by Damascus out of Resolver. As a 3 year old Time for a Change was considered one of the better prospects for the Tripple Crown that year along with Devil's Bag. Unfortunately he got a serious flu bug and missed all the triple crown races. He was coming back that winter when he suffered a condular fracture in a morning work. I was working for the vet who performed the surgery on him, Dr. Stephen Selway. I was his anesthetist, At that time, Time for a Change was the most expensivelly insured horse to go under the knife! Talk about nerve wracking. Time for a Change was a lovely great big chestnut horse with a superb disposition. He was never agressive or nippy to handle. In the stall you could handle him withjust a shank. One of my favorite patients, so I followeed Huey's career with interest.

ReeseTheBeast
Sep. 23, 2007, 10:47 PM
Reese's racing/JC registered name is "Showcased."

1999 or 2000 model, PA or MD bred, by In Case, out of Temeka (aka Pleasant Surprise).

don't know really anything about his racing history, I *think* he may have won one race and I was told that at one point he just wouldn't leave the starting gate.... I was also told that he was won in a claiming race (in Charleston, WV I think) in 2004 by the woman I bought him from (in 2005).

It's a longshot, but if anyone knows anything about him, I'd love to hear it! :yes:

(approx. 15.2, dark bay, off-center stripe, snip and a wall-eye [right])

My OTTB is Just Walter! A homebred I was lucky enough to buy as a 4 year old. He was slated as a stakes horse then he was gelded. Poor guy...good for me!

I kept his show name Just Walter too, who can change that and it fits him so well!

Wow! It makes me so happy to read all of that. :):) I really liked him and wanted to take him to my barn but didn't have time and had too many other going horses at that time. I knew he was in good hands in NC and knew he'd been sold into good hands, but I still think of him and wondered how he was doing. :cool:

Thanks for posting about it!

I don't have his papers, but got his name & race record through his tattoo (which was very clear when I got him many moons ago). His show name is "Jude the Obscure" (since we didn't know anything about him or his past when I got him!); barn name is "Jude." :cool:

Madera Man (1971)- I can't remember his sire offhand, but his dam was Madera (hence the 'cool' name :lol:). He won a whopping $1000 and something on the track; he really wasn't into racing. He was the gentlest, kindest guy who put up with a crazy 12 y.o. and carried me around my first 4' course. He would have made an extraordinary jumper except for the fact that where I lived as a kid (NM) it was all hunters, all the time so we were fish out of water and have lots of green and pink ribbons to show for it :lol:.

Black Stat (1988)- Dr Stat X Black Heart by Stuz Blackhawk. He won $41,418 and placed in a Black Type race before going downhill and finishing last in $1500 claimers. His previous owner outbid the meat man. He went on to be a successful jumper and is now living the retired life as a trail horse and companion. Oh, and he is chestnut :winkgrin:.

Unknown (1993)- I never could figure out what the last number of his tattoo was. I managed to narrow him down to two horses, both the same age and color and I never got any further because I sold him.

KaDe's Tyberious (1995)- Terrific Son X Dancing Sugar by Dancing Count. Never raced and not tattooed.

My guy raced under the name "Running Footman". He was a track kid for about 4 years, racing at Hoosier, Indiana Downs, and somewhere in Florida. Poor kid bled a lot toward the end of his career - when I bought him he had a haybag in his stall - found out about a year later after fighting with horrible respitory infections that he has a swallowing deficiency that won't allow him to eat hay! No wonder he wouldn't go fast enough to win!

Now he's my perfect boy... is really laid back *now* and likes to take about 5 hours to do a stadium course - I think his true calling may have been as a hunter, but he does love him some cross-country.

"Spot the Power"... which I decided against eventing under, though part of his record was acquired with other riders under that name; he now goes by "Strange Attractor" (it's a math thing).

Makes for interesting conversation, as he has no (visible) spots, at least none that one would call a horse Spot after seeing. He does have spotted skin, which is interesting.

He raced at Charles Town.

Sprite raced as Singing Native (Mill Native x Singing Gypsy - The Minstrel). Bred in CA, raced at Santa Anita 3 times as a 3 y/o. and was retired. LOL. Sloooow pony. I think she had a fourth and 2 fifths in those 3 starts. She has VERY clean legs :)

My old horse Buffett raced as Rossi Star (Paristo x Pink Supreme) and started 30-odd times racing from 2-4. One win, a bunch of placings. Useful but nothing to write home about. He was an IL- bred and raced primarily at Chicago tracks IIRC.

Sofie's JC registered name is So Fine (Turkey Shoot x So Funny). Turkey Shoot was by Seattle Slew and So Funny had Raise A Native lines. She raced until she was a five year old. I think she raced pretty exclusively at Philadelphia Park. At this point, I've owned her longer than her breeder or her racing owners (they bought her as a yearling). She's 13 this year.

My guy Dark Plum was also by Taylor's Special (I evented him through Prelim under the name Keahi...and he had the scope to go much much further)...he then went on to be a jumper. Was an incrediable jumper. Also only raced a couple of times (broke his madien and that was it). I know of a couple of others by Taylor's Special....all failures at the track but VERY nice event horses. I met someone who knew Taylor's Special and said he was the nicest and easiest to handle stud at the farm.....somewhere along the lines though he fell on hard times. It looks like he was rescued after being abandoned in a padock out west I believe. It was a shame because he would have been a very good sport horse sire.

Have fun with your boy!

Thats really cool that he's got lots of relatives that have been eventers! He does have a really great, big bascule jump. And great movement too when we're not tense! Everyone says he can definitely do a 1*. He goes around Training right now like its nothing. I just need to improve my riding enough to move up!
I saw an article in the last year or so that Taylor's Special had passed. I don't recal it mentioning a rescue but I don't remember much from the article. I do remember seeing a similarity in his looks to my guy. A very refined, attractive face.
Do you know of any others eventing now, or have they all retired that you know of?

I'm sure that there are a few....most of the ones that I knew were all rejects from Charles Town race track in WV. My guy was never very good in dressage (probably me more then him) but could trot 4'9" easily. We would jump around Prelim like it was BN (he moved up to prelim in one season). He was a very cool horse. I don't have any online photos of him but he was and the couple that I saw were all classic TBs...very attractive. Mine was all legs (16.3) and narrow....we would joke that when he turned sideways he disappeared. But he had a very pretty neck and head and supposedly looked a lot like the sire as well.

Football Rusher(2001)-(Wild Rush x Jovan's Lady) FL Bred. I don't know much about his race life...need to look it up still. It looks like he won a few times and had been moved around alot. Have had him a little over a year and due to his accident prone ways have not done much with him...but still a very sweet and cute guy.

My not-really-an-eventer (he'd much rather lope around 8 pretty fences, please) is Best to be Elusive (Elusive Quality x Bestofbothaccounts - by Private Account).

He raced six times, made $6700 or something ridiculous like that, and was donated to CANTER Mid Atlantic as a 3 year old colt. FairWeather IMed me and told me that he wanted to go home with me - so I went and picked him up the first weekend of Dec 2004.

He's been a slow'n'steady guy ever since I've known him. And he's ridiculously cute. That's our niche - cute and slow.

I have an 18 year old TB named Lovers Canyon. This gelding raced for 4 years, mainly at Kentucky tracks. He was a very polite racehorse, he let everyone finish ahead of him. I guess he wanted to make sure every other horse crossed the finish line without getting lost.

He did win one race, the horse ahead of him was disqualified.

When I bought him 2 years ago, the vet who did the prepurchase exam said he had wonderful legs for a 17 year old former race horse and second career eventer!

His only claim to famous racehorses is that his bloodlines go back to Nashua, who won the Preakness and Belmont in 1955, I think. I thought it was cool that Barbaro had Nashua in his bloodlines too.

Lover is a wonderful horse, teaching me the ropes of eventing, even if it is at the starter level. He's very kind, I was lucky to get him.

Well, mine is 16.3. But definitely NOT narrow! He does have the movement for dressage, but I don't think we've ever gotten above a 5 on submission...
I always makes him happy to jump though. I don't think he'd be happy in any other discipline than eventing. Too much waiting in H/J and not enough excitement in dressage for him!

I think he was born in MD and raced in KY or vice versa, I don't recall which.

I have a few pics online from earlier this summer that I'll dig up for you.

I'm looking at an OTTB (vetting on Friday!) and his name is Private Pleasure. That sounds a bit dirty to me, so I might be changing it if I get him. He came from a place in WV called Mountaneer.

I know a daughter and son of Believe the Queen. Both were AMAZING jumpers. Believe the Name is now a foxhunter (don't know where). He tried racing and 'chasing, but wasn't very successful, and was owned by on of the master's of LHW. The other was Classical Queen. She was HUGE and black, and amazing. I evented her, she got really good and was a jumping machine. She was sent back to her breeder/owner and now she's a broodmare. Such a waste of a good mare. I always ask her owner if I can have her back!

I have had three different OTTBs. First was Eating Out (83), Groovy Sarah (92) and Brothertotheblues (90). I am pretty sure that Groovy Sarah is from KY and that Eating Out is from FL if I remember correctly but my memory could be poor. Brothertotheblues won over $250,000 during his years on the track.

Jay's race name was "Check by Check" he was born at Heritage Farm in KY and was nominated for the Breeders Cup (i have his certificate). He had 33 starts but only 3 wins :(

I even got to see videos of him racing in deep mud which is one of the reasons i think he's so good on his feet.

My lease horse is named Naswar but he never actually raced. He's out of Unbridled's Song and since my trainer galloped him at the farm he was at in training she knows a lot about his history.. all his quirks etc. I'm glad she bought him before he raced because he's becoming an amazing sport horse!

My sweet little 7 yr old TB is by Storm Center out of Aye Dream. He raced in WV until I believe about 4. His name was "Aye a Hot Shot". Definitely didn't keep that one. I don't think he ever really had a break after the track and it's taken us a while to get things going- ok really quite a while, but things are good and we're back on our way to BN (after a slight confidence detour to Tadpole). :D His personality is priceless and he'll be my little guy forever.

I have two that are registered;

Agree with me by Magic Prospect, out of Makalei (Clever Trick) a 2002 mare, my eventer. She went to the track twice to train, once as a 2 year old and then as a 3 year old, she never made it to a race!

Hooper's Battle by Battle Creek, out of Hopper's Girl (Grand Allegiance) a 1999 mare, my project horse from last year than was, whoops, pregnant!

The resulting foal will be registed with the PHR and she is by Esteem, so actually a full tb!

I love looking into TB pedigree's. It is great fun, I wish more upper level eventer also had their TB's registered names available to research...

I've ridden or taken off the track as foster horses the following:

Add One Slew by One More Slew
Puntilla by Puntivo
Raw Bar Monster by Meadow Monster
Mailroomtoboardroom by Zafarrancho

I researched them all to death while I had them.

I have a boarder right now who is the coolest horse. He is 21 -- you can still read his tattoo. I'd love to learn his history but am too cheap to send in to the JC for just curiosity's sake!

Lets see.... I've had lots through my barn (my own, CANTER fosters, and other assorted kids on their way to the TRF or other homes...)

-Imagineer (my KICK BUTT eventer! total failure at the track, but he jumps the moon)
-Witto Road (my future event mare...once I have time!)
-Cheq's A Comin' (by the same sire as Meredith Clark's gelding.)
-Chunk of Coal (a Storm Cat granddaughter who is hanging out and grown up at my farm)
-Noboxwine (an adorable Seattle Slew granddaughter...also growing up)
-Dancing Villian (in foal to Reputed Testamony... very very :D:D)
-None Like You (now a polo pony with my vet... who loves her)
-Gaetano's Way (CANTER NE foster... won over $100K on the track)
-Built Up (waiting to go to the TRF... won nearly $800K)
-Jazzbit (now housed with a lovely woman in Northern Vermont)
-Lou Lou's A Gamer (stayed with me until she shipped to EqTrainer's farm :))
-Raw General (now in the TRF...at the ripe old age of 5)
-Purple Pirate (currently in training to be a hunter/jumper ride)
-Jeff's Gal (I *think*.. his tattoo is faded, and that's the match I got..evented thru prelim under Lunch Box II)


And with the closing of Suffolk Downs I'm sure there will be more to come :lol::sigh::lol:

So congrats are in order for you then?? :)
I found this horse for the current owner (I'm the "in" at the track) and had a wonderful feeling about him. Good luck to you, he's going to be something special! also....FWIW, I loff his racing name ! ;)

My current horse is Lord Hansel. He's a 1995 model by Hansel. 29 starts with only one win and earning about 11k.
Others I currently own are Spider Murphy a 2002 model by Wonneberg out of Keepaneyeoutforme by Gold Fever and Doc's Peak a 2003 model by Emigrant Peak out of Docs Lady by Doc's Leader.

Used to own and unraced mare named Attitude Plus and now have a filly out of her that I bred and raised named Simply Sealy but I won't ever run her.

We just put our OTTB, Phaltless Forbes aka Lady, out to grass today, literally - she's officially retired to 20 acres of Kansas' best. She was Oklahoma-bred St. Forbes out of Native Phalt - pity they didn't choose the "Dancer" part of her pedigree rather than the "Asphalt" - and never raced probably because of a starting gate accident which may have ended her racing but not her spirit or willingness to please.

Oct. 5, 2011, 01:09 PM
My mares name was Hey Teach by Electric Blue out of Scholarly. She was foaled 3 May 1990. I purchased her from my trained who got her from her owner who was a vet in WV. When we picked her up, her halter was embedded into her head and she was 400lbs underweight. The owner had no explanation and was reported to the authorities. We also got another mare that night named Banner Year who was in the same shape, but had a club foot as well.

Oct. 5, 2011, 01:44 PM
My mare is Retrieve the Gold (2000) is a NY bred mare by Our Emblem out of Varsity Gold by Transworld. She had 44 starts and won 94K, mostly at Charlestown WV, racing for 4 years. I got her as a CANTER owned horse one week after her last race, a year ago.

You can see her progress over the past 14 months through the link in my signature.


Mine is by Our Emblem as well.

Loveton He's a 2004 model. By Our Emblem out of a stakes winning Sonny Halo mare called Dianes Halo. Had over 20 starts and won a little under 50K.

Here is his glamour shot below.

Other one is Stole the Quarters

http://www.pedigreequery.com/stole+the+quarters

Shes a 2007 mare. Just starting her retraining and will hopefully make someone a lovely little horse.

Vetting a new one tomorrow so maybe I will have another!;) I've had many others in the past but my current herd is mostly full of unraced horses.

Since this thread got bumped I'll add to it.

when I bought Char (August 93), I was told her name was Lady Chardinan. However, no papers and a reading-challenged tattoo meant it could be anything. And turns out it was (I was also told she was 8 and turned out to be 6). A few YEARS later, I finally deciphered the mystery. Lady Chardinan was actually "Tippateena" (out of Fun Lover by Sing Sing). I even was able to track down photographs of her 2 wins at Turfway. Initially I hated the name and was glad to stick with Lady Chardinan. I found out later as I talked to the breeder that Tippateena's is (was?) a jazz club in New Orleans in a tough part of town. Her sire line was Sing Sing by Stop the Music (Hail to Reason son)... so I guess the musical reference was appropriate.

Purchased Frankie at a track auction in October 2004 as a 4yo. She was easy... registered and raced as Hey Baby Hey. I showed her as that the first year and sold her the next December. She's now competing as Let's Be Frank and is looking at the CCI** at Chatt Hills. I couldn't be prouder!

My mare's racing name was Seneca Wind. Montreal Red x Friendly Goose. She has Secretariat, Exceller, and Cannonade three generations back.http://www.pedigreequery.com/seneca+wind

She won about 40,000 on the turf, over five years of racing. She wasn't spectacular at it, so when she got injured coming out of starting gate in a spring race, her owner very generously gave her to me. I found my mare through Goodhorse.org (shameless plug, but these people are great) run by Kim Clark.

Seneca was a Florida bred but I got her from Bowie Training center in Maryland. The owner even signed over her papers to me incase I wanted to breed her at some point, and I got her transfered in to my name through the Jockey Club.

I've never had a TB much less an OTTB, but she's fabulous.

Bett's Jet (http://www.pedigreequery.com/betts+jet)
Kissy Kiss (http://www.pedigreequery.com/kissy+kiss)
Sons of Liberty (http://www.pedigreequery.com/sons+of+liberty)

The first two are broodmares, so pedigree is important and therefore, solidly old-school.

The third is a 3YO who raced at 2. He's big, sound, athletic, and intelligent.

Two of mine are horses we raced so I know their history:
For Pete's Sake

And the third is the mare I mentioned before named Attitude Plus. I have her back after 6 years of not owning her.
Spider Murphy passed away unexpectedly on 10/31/10 at the age of 8.

I have a ton of TBs here that we race and some that are on lay up or who will be bred next spring.

Tucson still goes by his race name Tucson Magic. (I think I posted that earlier in this thread prior to the bump.)

The NTRA Aftercare site featured him, and last week I heard from his race owners! I was thrilled to hear from them, because he was clearly well taken care of his whole life, not just with the fabulous people from whom I bought him. I found out where he lived out on pasture through his two year old year before starting his racing career, why they loved his bloodlines when they bought him at auction, etc. They're going to come out to our place to visit and bring the scrapbook they made during his racing career, with his grand total of 11 races and one win.


At his vet check, my vet had trouble believing he even evented to Training, much less ever raced, based upon how great his flexions were. Clearly his owners and their trainer took great care of their horses! :)

Here's her pedigree if your interested. I don't know much about pedigree's but I do recognize a few names from brousing the forums. Looks like she even had Man O' War in her way back.

She was a 1979 model. Don't know how far back you were looking for...

My first Ottb's racing name was Rita's Rico (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/minitutu/Divers/Ritabankdown.jpg?t=1241819839), didn't do well racing, was a lot of fun riding and jumping. She died prematurely when she was 6 yo, her pasture mate kicked and broke her leg just when we were about to start competing. ;(

The second and current one is Your So Charming (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/minitutu/2011/Trotleft.png?t=1308311367), tried hard (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/minitutu/Charm/Charm_winning_pic.jpg) on the racetrack, won some, didn't like the Boston dirt ;)
http://www.pedigreequery.com/your+so+charming

And at one point I also had a cute mare called Bucks Lullaby (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/minitutu/Lullabye/2007/Lula08-2007-1.jpg), but having 2 horses was too much and I gave her away to a friend. She's the best looking of the 3, and probably has the best pedigree of the 3...oh well.

I've had 2 that raced, the rest only trained. My first horse when I was almost 7 was raced under Royal Amerigo-he raced in PA and then came down to GA where we bought him off my coach at the time. He was wonderful in the ring but everytime we went out to hack he'd bolt and gallop back after we turned for home.
The horse I have now raced at Hastings (BC) and won a few races until an injury. He raced under Lego Man. After 5 mths of rehab I've now had him u/s for about 5 mths and he's coming along (2 mths of ground driving and some lunging before u/s slow work.) He's out of Finality (NY bred, standing in BC.)
The other ones I had, trained but never raced:
Frankie's Promise (she had a freak paddock accident just after she turned 4 :( I miss her a lot as she had so much potential!!!)
Intuitively She is in retirement after she was sold and sustained an injury :(
Twisterfare (I bought him in the fall of 06'- he pretty much lived up to his JC name..I renamed him Rum Cay :) ...sadly he passed away last March from another freak paddock accident...I miss him a lot too!!!) I luckily have 2 awesome horses to keep me going and motivated again!!

Gotta love OTTB!!! :)
I've had a few TB x's that have good TB lines too...off the topic I know lol
The mare I have right now, reg HS Wish Upon a Star, out of a JC mare that raced once-Cybr Princess (has In Reality, Man O'War,Gallant Man)
Perseverance-Han/TB..her TB side Southerly out of Our Native (unraced mare)
Doc's Lucky Feather-TB side (unraced) Roman Feathers (back to Roman line)

I had him for a few months and ended up putting him down due to a bad impaction. :(

Bobby D (pic in sig line) is the current one. He's be De Niro (pedigree here http://www.pedigreequery.com/bobby+d2). Raced at Delaware Park and Tampa Bay Downs, made a little over 20k.

I'm too lazy to change their JC name unless it's really horrendous, so Bobby will be shown as Bobby D. Although after one of the boarders printed out his race report I gave some serious thought to showing him under "Failed to Menace." It says that about a lot of his races, and it suits his goobery personality :lol:

I used to have "Gold Rolls" (1986) by Caveat out of a mare named Fair Hostess. Caveat won the Belmont in 1983, but was (I was told) infamously bad tempered. Fortunately his son, who we called Pretzel, was not.

I am currently blessed with the company of "Quick to Fight" - who isn't! He's by Fit to Fight and out of Sarhonda. He raced over 50 times and won about 5 of them. His second career as a low level show jumper/jack of all trades seems to be suiting him much better.

I love looking up their pedigrees and records, it's part of the OTTB fun!

hmm... judy, I have to go back in my emails/voicemails, but I got an inquiry about Artax Returns recently (by recently I mean earlier this year, from an early connection of some sort iirc), someone trying to figure out where he ended up.

If I can find it mind if I pass it on to you?

eta... nevermind, it was artax collector, totally different horse! heh

My gelding, Catch Budda (2005) (Buddha x Catch Arising Star--On to Glory) was race trained, I think out in Illinois somewhere but not for very long because he was sent to a high-goal polo player after that and I got him as a long two year old. His show name is Big Bird and we do dressage. You'd think they could have come up with a better name than Catch Buddha.

Ditto for the mare I'm half-leasing, Radiant Wisdom (2005) (Whiskey Wisdom x Always Be Sunny--Iskandar Elakbar. She's from Ontario. I love her dam's name. She's the fieldmaster's horse in her other life and the biggest sweetheart I've ever had the privilege of riding.

My old mare, Andrea's Friend (1984-2011) (Stone Manor X Paul A Dear--Reverse) was at Woodbine as a two year old and managed a couple of thirds in about 10 races.

Obviously, I love a good TB above all else.

Mine is a 10yo named We All Love Aleyna. Won about $450K & stakes placed. Good story: A few weeks ago I had just come out of the show jumping ring at an event and a lady came up and asked if he'd raced. I said, "Oh yes" and told her his name. She said, "I thought so. A group of us followed him when he was running and always wondered what became of him." And then she took a bunch of photos for her friends. She said they were excited when his younger sister came to the track, but apparently she was injured & never ran.

Oooooh! I love talking about my boy!

He raced under the name P Day. I got him for $500 from someone who was going to ship him to New Holland if I didn't take him.
http://www.pedigreequery.com/p+day
His racing career was much more impressive than anything he did with me, 57 starts (over a almost 10 year career) 17 wins, 12 places, 11 shows, including a win in the Baltimore Breeders Cup Handicap (g3) and 2 shows in the Maryland Million Handicap. Career earnings were almost $700,000.
I evented him for 2 years before we had to retire him because of some issues with his circulation in his legs. Now he is a pasture ornament at my parents farm and spends his days gorging himself on hay :)

Squillion aka "Basco" and WakiNomad aka "Wakerdoodles".

Basco wasn't that great of a runner (3-4 placings I think), but Waki won a few races. I watched video of one of his winning races and holy crap that horse had speed. He turned it on and made the other horses look like they were standing still.

I have a TB who definitely raced (has pin firing scars), but we don't have his papers, his name is unknown, and his tattoo appears tampered with. SO yep I don't know mine! Wish I did though...does anyone have any advice for reading tattoos with 2 unreadable letters?

breeder was Charles Crommer of MI.

Raced 63 times: (7) firsts, (6) second (6) third--didn't earn an impressive amount of $$ but ended up in virginia where I purchased him and had a blast with him for the remaining years of his life :D. He taught me sooooo much! RIP you old fart!

Southerby 2003 g by Belong to Me out of Fiscal Gold. Paternal grandsire Danzig, maternal grandsire Slew o Gold by Seattle Slew. He is a big bay boy, looks more like a warmblood than TB. Finished his first season of eventing clear XC in all runs and moved up to Novice after 3 BN! He is a dressage king as well but we tend to have a dang rail in SJ. Winter homework! Very talented but very opinionated...

Save N The Day 2007 m by Daylight Savings out of Burmese Diplomat. Her paternal grandsire is Sky Classic (CAN hall of famer) and great grandsire is Nijinsky II (CAN hall of famer). She started her eventing career this season after a total of 8 weeks training (between Oct and May.. We had alot of issues (strangles, huge hole in leg from a seroma) over the winter) at BN and is a XC machine and super careful and catty SJ. She placed every time but our last two events I planned this season we had to scratch cuz she had colic surgery:( hoping for a complete recovery because she makes me feel that she "Is THE ONE!"

How can you find out where your horse raced and what they won? I used to know the site, and I had a temp membership.

If anyone can look for me, my OTTB is named Mudders Day. 1997 model. TIA.

Actually... if you can get the first letter, and at least two of the digits (it is a letter followed by 5 numbers), and you have the horse's full description (ALL white markings - even a few white hairs on the forehead might count), you can search a partial tattoo pretty easily at tjcis.com. It's free (you do have to register or have an equineline account but it doesn't cost anything). If you don't have the first letter, it's still doable if you know the horse's age.

If you want to PM me what you have, I'll happily take a stab at it :)

equibase.com :) Just plug your horse's name into the search box up towards the top right of the screen.

I am sad to inform you your horse was pretty much an abject failure at the track, 6 starts, never made third, though did win a whopping $252 :D (raced at Portland Meadows and Grants Pass)

My new guy's racing name was "Joyous Jester" -- raced about 25 times, won around $80k. Bred in Maryland and finished his career up at Delaware Park. He is 6 now and I am hoping that he will become a kickass eventer -- so far, his awesome brain appears to have no limits!
