I worked, briefly, with an OTTB named Cal (Call To Honor x Carroll) and so desperately wanted him. I saw him start once, and it was a miserable failure on his part. He was a big black guy, at Saratoga.
His pedigree is here, I think. I'd love to find out if anybody knew him, or where he ended up. It's a wicked long shot, but if he's out there, I'd love to know!
Holy crap, Freebird! I went to add the ones I could think of to your new spreadsheet, and saw the horse named Repeat Peteski you listed. I keep thinking I know that name, I known that name.... So went and looked up his pedigree. Hot damn, I have his dam! Good 'ole Masquerade Maid, whom I affectionately call 'The Old Biddy". I would love to hear what you know about him. I'm still in touch with his breeder, so would be happy to pass on any info to her, or see if she has any she would share with you, if you'd like.

This is a great idea! I hope you don't mind, but I tweeked the format a bit. If...and that's a big IF...I get some free time, I'll go through the thread and add all of the TBs mentioned. That's, of course, if anyone wants me to.
Somehow my TBs got added under the wrong name. Aggressive Brass and Murphy's Time were both owned by 4cornersfarm, not Cherry Hill. Cherry Hill was another TB boarded by me at one time.
I added a new column and changed another one. Basically, there is one column for previous owners/riders/grooms/etc, and another column for current owners. So, if you have acquired a TB and want to know his history, you would put your name under column C. If you used to own/ride/bred/groomed etc. the TB in his early years, then you would add your name to column B. Make sense?
GJ - or anyone - I had to set the Spreadsheet as "protected. Let me know if you are still able to add horses. If not, I can add them, or just send me your Gmail address, and I will add you as a collaborator.
Has anyone worked with a horse named T Js lil Darlin? He was at charelstown and trained by timothy Collens, hes a c g out of lovin darlin. I would love to get into contact with anyone who may have worked with him or actually owned him before me. Hes in good hands now and is moving into his second job please send me a PM if you know anything thanks
Not sure this quite fits but I am trying to find the previous owner or ANY information on my TB mare. She isnt tattooed but we believe she might have been at the track OR it has been suggested that she was a rare twin and wasnt tattooed because she was the smaller one 15.2 She is 12 now by racehorse years. Bay with a blaze/white face. Her right eye is blue and her left is brown. Front left sock and two back socks. I bought her when she was 4 but would love to know her background/pedigree but very hard with no papers/tattoo!
For those of you who have OTTBs now (or had them in the past), I hope you'll consider adding them to our "Bloodline Brag" on the Retired Racehorse Training Project website. We're at about 600 entries and I would love to see it at more like 2000+!!
Actually sold my OTTB hunter to a nice family and they told me they are sending him to your farm for training in March Funny coincidence! By the way I am IN LOVE the Salute The Truth. I visit him at the expo every year!
