I got a horse about 6 weeks ago named "Braes Pleasure" He is a 2002 bay gelding and his pedigree and basic race record is winner of $65746, 37 starts, race record of 4 - 4 - 7. What I really would like to know is where he raced and when his last race was. I was told he came off the track four years ago, but I really don't think that is the case. He is a COOL horse tho that I hope will become an eventer. They want my credit card number and SSN for "free" membership to Brisnet and not happy giving out that info for a "free" offer. thanks in advance!

turns out he came off the track in June this year, poor guy only had one "break" in four years a 6 month stretch in 2007, other than that looks like he averaged 1 - 2 races per month! He is very sound. Can't figure out from the Equineline report what tracks he was at tho.

Track abbreviations, along with bucketloads more info, are listed in the Racing 101 thread.

Just go to equibase & they'll give you a chart for each one of his races. He raced at Charlestown mostly with Penn National twice & Colonial once. He only raced once a month....only three times did he race twice a month & those were stretched out (beginning of month & end) -- they didn't over-run him, in my eyes... races were mostly only 4 & 1/2 furlongs, too -- which doesn't take too much out of them. He had one big lay-off of 7 months but also had a month off here or there, too...

Not really saying he was overun, I was just surprised that he raced for 4 years with little in the way of a break AND remained this sound. he wasn't passed around however, which I think is good, really only owned by two people. Did firgure out the track abbreviations. He has had 6 weeks off now with me and we are starting to retrain him. He is a real sweetheart taht seems to like having a job, but has enjoyed his time turned out with a three year old as well!
