Anyone who can help this would be greatly appreciated

I lost all my files on my computer due to a oh so wonderful virus.

I had saved my horses race history/record that someone had looked up and emailed to me when i first purchased him. I am currently having a painting done of him and im looking for his specidic number and photos of him breaking his maiden in his first graded stakes race. This happened at Keeneland. His name is Storm Gulch and if anyone can look up info for me and send it to me, thatd be GREAT!

Im also looking for ocntact info for the track photographers at Santa Anita, Keeneland, Phil Park, and more...i just dont have the time to list them right now

If anyone has emails/websites for these photographers please PM me or email me at farmgirls@visionmolding.com

Thanks

I use AVAST anti-virus. I use the free version; have for more than a year now, & I could not be happier. There is also a version you can pay for.

Google it!

Well, his record on Brisnet goes like this:

59 starts, 8 - 6 - 8, earned $102,920

He didn't win any graded stakes. Or did you just mean a graded stakes he started in?

he DID win a graded stakes at Keeneland. that was the race that put him on the KY derby trail. It was also the first race he ever won. I believe he was in Steve Asmussens barn at the time

Here is his race record, which you can get for free at Brisnet. If he won a GS at Keeneland that put him on the Derby trail then it had to have been his 2yo win. Given his earnings for that win were $31k, the total purse was $50k, so I'm doubting the race was graded.
Keeneland has I believe three GS for 2yos, two G1s, one of which is for fillies, and a G3, the Bourbon Stakes on grass. He didn't win either of those races. Maybe there was a race back in '02 that is no longer graded, but I doubt it.

Here's his first win (and only win at 2)... not a graded stakes.

Storm Gulch, a 2-year-old son of Gulch, wins a maiden special event at Keeeneland. He races for our racing stable and we were thrilled when he lead throughout the race and drew off to win by 4 lengths.

It appears he did run in a graded stakes in early 2003, but did not place

thanks for all the help. i will have to go back and review everything on his papers as i do recall discussing a graded stakes win with his trainer. I believe he also ran in the Sham Stakes at Santa Anita as he ran against the big boys in that race too.

Ahh it could just be my horrible memory playing games on me since i havnt looked at his record or his papers in a long time.

anyways i was just looking for his record from keeneland so i could figure out the date he raced to find a photo of him. the reason for this is because i would like to know his number and saddle cloth color from that day as i would like, in the painting of his first big win, him to be portrayed in the scene of that day. Thanks all!




I'm kind of doubting he won a graded stakes race.

whoa... "Our Bobby V" that was in that race ended up going through CANTER (through the donation program, not the trainer listings where storm gulch was). Small world :)

I know I definitely found a mention somewhere of Storm Gulch in the Sham Stakes, but I don't remember where he came in. There may still be video on youtube somewhere, I swear I remember watching it when I still had time to waste and look up random info about trainer listed horses.

Google is your friend.

Man Among Men marks himself as Derby Material [in the 03 Sham Stakes] (http://www.enquirer.com/editions/2003/02/09/spt_wwwsptzhor9.html)
By Beth Harris

The Associated Press

ARCADIA, Calif.- Man Among Men returned to the dirt and won the $81,000 Sham Stakes by a length Friday at Santa Anita, stamping himself as Kentucky Derby material.

...and Storm Gulch seventh after being eased.
(Not the best performance...but then, had he stayed on par with Derby horses, he wouldn't have ended up with you, right? :) )

You'll want to get a lifetime starts past performance report for the info you need to tell the track photographer. $8 through equineline (http://www.equineline.com/prodsamp.cfm) and as little as $3 through brisnet (http://www.brisnet.com/cgi-bin/gen_static.cgi?page=gen_sbs).

When you find out where he won, just call the track and ask to be put through to the track photographer (most tracks have websites these days which will tell you the main number -- like I said, Google is your friend). You'll need to know the date he won, the race number, and possibly the post position (sometimes that comes in handy in a close finish, so you can tell whether he was on the rail or outside...along those same lines he might show up nicely in the win photo for a different horse if he finished second by a nose or a neck.)

Happy researching.

i think part of the reason why he was eased in the sham stakes and didnt "show up" that day was because i believe he suffered a minor injury in that race.

Anyways; after some time off he came back, although not the same calibur of horse, and raced very well in the lower ranks...and then he came home with me :)

Follow that link, and select Keeneland, October 23, 2002, then race #2, and you will get the chart from his maiden win.
