    Default Finding old race photos of an OTTB

    Where would I go to get some old race photos of my trainers OTTB? I know they're much easier to find if the horse raced recently but is it still possible to get them from years ago? Any ideas?

    Look up the horses race record and if it won contact the track photographer where it won. I did that with a stakes winner I'd owned when he was done racing. I paid around $10 for his win pic and it was mailed to me.

    Do you think it's still possible though to find them even if he raced a long time ago? I know he won some I'm just not sure if the pictures would still be available after so long of a time.

    I'm not sure but it's been at least 10+ years. My trainer just seemed so excited to think that there were old pics of him out there but I wasn't sure if it was too late to find them.

    I'm sure some photographers still have photos from 10 years ago. What's his registered name?

    His name is Major Blue and I think he was born in 1990

    He broke his maiden at Delta Downs on May 22, 1994. You could always get in touch with the current track photographer to see if they still have files from then. Doesn't hurt to ask.

    He won one other time at Evangeline, but I'm not sure when because a few of the charts at Equibase aren't downloading for me.

    Awesome, thanks. That would be great if they still had some pictures of him. My trainer would be so excited.
