Standardbred Brands, Help reading?

So after having my STB for a couple of years, I've decided to try and track his brand. Find out his racing past and maybe try find some baby pictures.
I believe Standie brands change from place to place, but here they have two lines. Top line is the S for standardbred, then where they were born/bred, then the year they were born. Bottom line in the registered number.

So These are the symbols, and what numbers they reprisent;


And here is my baby's brand;




I'm thinking it looks like S3932934
Which would mean he's born in Victoria, in '93 which (from what I was told about his age) seems right. And his number would be 2934 ?


What do you see? I don't want to waste too much time if I'm seeing the symbols wrong. Haha.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

Awesome, thanks.
I just needed reassurance. :P
I've looked up that horse and found a place he was raced. I've sent them an email. Hopefully I'll find out if it's him! All I need is one picture and I'll be able to tell.

Thankyou guys.

Sorry to bring this up again but the horse registered to the number/brand we thought it was supposedly died in 2003. Which means it's not my horse, yet the brand is exactly the same, and the registered name actually has my horses name in it. Odd.
Any other ideas what it could say? I'm so annoyed.

Haha! Never mind! I sent a picture of his brand to the Harness Racing club, turns out the horse didn't die, he is in fact my horse!
I've now found out my horse won over $10,000 with 74 starts and 12 placings. He has a few trotting records as well. :)

I'm over the moon! Haha!
