Portland Meadows: Can anyone help me contact Rich Debut's owner/trainer?
Can anyone tell me how I can track down a horse's owner or trainer? The mare is Rich Debut, she's 7 and ran in Race 10 at Portland Meadows today, 3/22. She won.
We had her dam and I'd like to contact the owner and/or trainer and make sure they know Rich Debut has a soft place to land if ever she falls on hard times.
This mare has had a reasonably successful career, I guess. She ran in a $2000 claiming race today. How could someone off the track 'claim' her to retire her sound? Is that possible? Can it be done through another licensed trainer or owner? The dam's owners (who are eager to make sure the offspring don't go to slaughter) would be willing to purchase her.
Rich Debut ($6.80) won her eighth race in 2011 with a four-length victory in the third race under Joe Crispin for trainer Rigoberto Velasquez. The 7-year-old California-bred mare took over the national lead in wins with the victory
