No tattoo, then he never raced. My mare never raced either, though she is registered. It is my understanding that thoroughbreds *may* train at a track without a tattoo, they are not allowed to race at all without one.
if there is no tattoo then he never raced, he may have trained but not race.
i am so sorry to hear the bad news, but take your time,love him and things have a way of working out.
love that you are keeping kobie's best at heart
and have not heard that indian charlie's are all wobblers. have worked on a few, but never seen one that was a wobbler, sorry.

He has a full brother named Judith's Garden who races. He's a 2005 model with 29 starts on Equineline. 29 starts would put him in the sound class most probably, unless they are running him on band-aids.
Pedigree does have a bearing. In Excess (Indian Charlie's sire) has a reputation for siring fragile horses, and I believe that Indian Charlie does also, but not certain. Kobie is double RAN, top and bottom, with one of those doubles being Mr. P on the bottom.

I am really sorry for both of you. Kobie is super lucky to have you as his person, and your doing the right thing. I know this is a really hard time for you both right now, but keep your chin up and give that pony of yours lots of loving for us all here at COTH.
