Their assumption of U22694 MAY be right--he certainly looks 19...but I'm having trouble with the stripe and two white hind not matching. The other numbers don't match (964 is a chestnut gelding, 644 is a mare). But U22694 won't come up with white markings on the hind legs, which should mean U22694 is not the tattoo.
However, this one has come up twice if I search using the U, 2, and 4 plus the white markings: U29764
Star and connected irregular stripe, narrowing on bridge of nose, widening and becoming bordered flesh colored above nostrils, extending and ending between nostrils, into right nostril; median cowlick at bottom of eye level. Left hind: half pastern white, extending on ankle in back; dark spots on coronet. Right hind: ankle white, extending to quarter white stocking on inside; dark spots on coronet.
This is Shirley's Fantasy, a bay or brown horse (meaning the last the JC knew he wasn't gelded.) Might be him?

Let us know if they get a better tattoo read--and you know it's free to register to use the Jockey Club's interactive site! (And a great way to have time disappear in a black hole when you've got something to look up...)

Christy said they will be contacting the jockey club Monday and see if they can verify his identity. Hopefully it is him. I know they have someone that looks up the tattoos but have been so busy they didn't get to do a more complete check. Also sometimes they only have a few minutes with each horse at the brokers; depending on how many they have, etc Thanks a mil!!!

It can also depend on reading the tattoo--that's hard in ideal conditions, so I wouldn't be surprised if they had some that are not what they think they are. They don't generally have much time with each horse, I thought?
He LOOKS 19 to me, but that U22694 is just not coming up with white on the face and two white hinds...I hope they get a better look and can figure out who he is.
