Question Help Finding Info on STB Mare, Do You Have Access to Databases?

I adopted a wonderful STB mare several months ago that I am head over heels in love with. I knew nothing about STB's before laying eyes on her, but once I saw her, I had this nagging feeling that wouldn't go away until I committed to taking her home.

I am just putting a feeler out there for anyone who might have access to Standardbred racing databases that can help reap some more information about her. She's older and she wasn't a spectacular racer, but I would love to know all I can about her past. She has 18 years under her belt that I don't know much about.

Congratulation to your pruchase of a Standy! I'm hooked on the breed as well! Just simply amazing horses.

For a pedigree look-up, you can sign up for a free two day trial on
PEDIGREE GURU - The online standardbred horse pedigree expert.

Or you can contact the USTA (U.S. Trotting Association) and they can answer all of your questions about Standardbred horses and harness racing (614) 224-2291. You will need to provide her tattoo number on either her lip or neck.

When I was looking for info on my Standy, I called Standardbred Canada and they faxed me all her racing records and pedigree. It was amazing!

The first Standy I got 3 years ago, I even got the name of the local track photographer and was able to order some racing pics of him!

GOOD LUCK!!

Very good looking STB mare! Her bloodlines are really good as well.

WWA had really good advice.

You might also be able to get a lead from the closest track to you as well by calling the office/going in (depending on how close). They could possibly print you off her race record, but I am not sure since she is an older mare.

You paied how much for a standie? Around here you cann get off the track standie for free and a fully trained out for lesss than $1000. I am glad to see someone else that is interested in the breed. I was never able to find out about my mare at 12 you can't read her freeze brand and we don't think Mooney was her registered name. I don't think canada has a database I can look up in, so it is great that you could find out about her.

Mooney--just contact Standardbred Canada, and you might be able to get some info.

But of course without a name or tat number, you might be out of luck.

Try clipping over her tattoo, and it might come out clearer. We do that in the winter so the judges can read them when they come into the race paddock.

Might try, we tried it is the spring two years ago and no luck, maybe with the winter coat? We even called them with what we thought the brand was. She did race until she was 8 so there has to be recorded some where.

The program that WWA found the above mare in has a search that you can do if you are not sure of a letter/number in the tattoo.

Hmm, this is an interesting find. Williams . . . In Hanover, PA. As in, Hanover Shoe Farms? If so, that's a real gem there. Did this mare breed at Hanover? Allbreedpedigree has her foals out of Lindy Lane, Artsplace, and Victory Dream. I will need to investigate if they stood there.

Thank you! I didn't know much about STB bloodlines, but I'm slowly learning there's something interesting in the bloodline department. Her being older will prove to be an obstacle for sure. I never thought of calling the track, or even that they would be able to help. I will try that for sure.

I really enjoy talking to standie fans too! I don't think I've heard a bad thing about the breed yet.

I got my girl fully-trained for F-R-E-E. Yes, amazing! The whole package for that price . . . Whew. Granted, I had to fill out a 5 page application, send in references, etc. The day I was approved to take her home was one of the happiest days of my life.

I will take ALL suggestions. Thank you once again for helping out here. I feel like I'm on a detective case.
