If I know my horse's registered jockey club name and tattoo number, and the year he was born and his dam and sire and all that, can I find out his date of birth on their internet query? In the past I received the reports by mail with his race record and breeder and DOB but I can no longer find that. His birthday is coming up any day now but I don't remember the exact date and I feel like a terrible mom.
If you go to http://www.equineline.com and register (free username), you can select to get FREE 5-Cross Pedigree with Interactive Nicking #10N reports. All you need to do is type in the horse's name, horse's name and year of birth, or year of birth and the dam's name. Once you find the correct horse, the report will list the horse's actual birthdate under the name on the report (a pedigree report).
You register and you can receive emails of workouts, entries, results etc for any horse you know the name of. You can plug any horse in, it'll give you the bday even if it hasn't run in years. But for the current runners you'll get updates.
This is how I track current CANTER and the like horses. Not to mention Lad's family members.
