Question Does anyone know of......

Matchlite? He's my mare's sire. He is a tb who raced successfully I believe, I was just wondering if anyone could find a picture of him, or any more than just his pedigree?? I've looked and looked but I can't seem to find anything. Odd because he was the #1 tb sire in Michigan.

Any help would be appreciated. I really want a picture of him.

You are a great champion. When you ran, the ground shook, the sky opened and mere mortals parted.
I love you Vinty, you'll always be my champion.

Michigan sire Matchlite dead at age 21

Four-time Michigan stallion of the year Matchlite died on October 31 due to an aneurysm. The son of Clever Trick was 21.
Matchlite sired 14 stakes winners from 14 crops of racing age and has progeny earnings of $5,979,982 through Friday. His most notable offspring include 12-time stakes winner Pongo Boy, who earned $776,184, and stakes winner and $269,534-earner Match Trick.
Matchlite, who was owned by Matchlite Syndicate, is currently represented by 16 juveniles. He stood the 2003 season for a private fee at Dickinson Farms in Montgomery, Michigan.
Campaigned by William S. Farish, who bred him in Kentucky along with Bayard Sharp, Matchlite won three of 11 career starts and earned $49,769. He was out of the wining Sir Ivor mare Light Up My Life, a half sister to graded stakes winners McCann and Forlana and stakes winner Blade Of the Ball. Light Up My Life was out of stakes winner Tusi Bell, a full sister to 1972 Preakness Stakes winner Bee Bee Bee.

Thats what I have pulled off of google. I havent been able to track down a picture but his pedigree does indicate he is a dark brown. Lots and lots of foals on the ground considering he passed away in 2004!
