Smile Looking for information on this horse

I own an ex-race horse named Captivator, he was race horse of the year in 2001 for Florida and I have found some information such as pedigree, and one article in a Pennsylvania track newsletter, but nothing more. Does anyone have websites where they look for information on?
I posted on a forum once before too and found someone with his half sister! Does anyone have any relatives? He is Irish Tower x Sensuously. He's also a like 4x great-grandson of Man O' War.

pedigree - Captivator Horse Pedigree

I have also covered most of what I could find through the Jockey Club.

Here's his picture:

(he has the longest TB mane & tail ever; its longer than that picture now haha - and great feet! so weird.)

Well from checking his pedigree/stats from equineline's free 5X pedigree page, ( Free 5-Cross Thoroughbred Pedigrees from equineline.com - Thoroughbred Pedigree now with Free Interactive Nicking ) it looks like he won $245,167 racing and had 127 starts-- (!)
You probably already have that info... but wow!

Oh-- and he's very handsome.

Yeah, there's not much more really, The Jockey Club and the site above list most of the information I have seen, But it sounds like you know a lot about him, what else are you looking for?

Any race records, etc. Definitely pictures of when he was younger. I'm sure there would be some somewhere but I ran out of places to look.

If he's the horse I think he is (I can't seem to view the photos you've posted), he was last owned as a racehorse by my father... and he was the winningest horse in North America for 2001 (my Dad has the trophy). I believe it was 11 races that he won that year. Captivator was old for a thoroughbred (8 or 9 years old, over twice the age of many racehorses). In training Captivator, my Dad realized that this great horse simply needed longer race courses to be successful. Captivator's strength was his great speed that kicked in after the younger horses had run out of steam. He was a great horse and my parents' pride and joy. They decided to give him a well-deserved retirement from racing after that year.
