Okay, so we ran Sam's tattoo number yesterday on the Jockey Club website and the first page popped up like this:
Name: Symmetry Spire
YOB: 1995 (the same year I was born)
Dam's name: The Lady Rules
Color: Drk Bay
Okay, so that was cool! We ended up spending $8 on his race records, and he had 15 total starts, 5 firsts, 1 second and 1 Third, with a total lifetime earnings of $28,246. That was even cooler, until we downloaded the free pedigree. His sire (Mountain Cat) was by Storm Cat. Storm Cat's dam Terlingua was sired by Secretariat!! His broodmare sire was Raise a Regal, sired by Raise a Native, sired by Native Dancer. So, I was pretty excited!
I want to search his owner's name and maybe see if we can contact them if they've got pics. (oh, and he was born in Maryland...how'd he end up two hours away from the Pacific ocean?)
Any feedback would be soo appreciated!
