Looking at a 4 year old gelding reg. name Song of Thunder. He is for sale pretty cheap but they say 100 percent sound etc. Now I am enough of a doubting thomas to think it's most unlikely. So looking for anything anyone might be able to dig up about him. My google attempts have only showed his age is correct and name is correct and he did race but not much else.
Many thanks for any help

Raced 7 times at Retama Park and Sam Houston, no wins, 1 second, 1 third, you can see the charts here: http://www.equibase.com/premium/eqbHorseInfo.cfm?refno=8007119®istry=T
Says his heels were clipped on the chart from his last race, but other than that just seems like he was slow. There are no gaps in his career, he raced every month but only for a short while. Of course who knows what he has been doing for the last year. His last race was in Feb 2010. I see he has somehow migrated to Maine.
Owned and trained by Hilton E. Werneth, Jr for his entire career.

Clipping heals can be disastorous, I would go over him carefully.
