View Full Version : How long are win photos kept?

I finally got around to calling and leaving a message for the track photographer at Charles Town re: trying to get a win photo for an OTTB I adopted. His (one and only) win was in November 2005... do I have a chance in hell that the photographer would still have a photo that old? I have the exact date and race number; I'm assuming that would be enough information to go with, assuming he would still have the photo...

The short answer is - depends on the photographer and if it is the same photographer. Some never throw stuff away and others regularly purge. Best bet is to call and see.

Called and left a message. I was just curious if they're required to hold them for a set period of time or something... It's Mike at Charles Town. He sounds like a nice guy, no clue how long he's been there though.
