Thoroughbred Tattoo ID Help

Hello,

I recently adopted an OTTB from a rescue who has a very faded tattoo. She is on a 60 day trial and I would love to figure out who she is to help in my decision to keep her. Of course that is not the only thing I am looking at but, it would certainly help fill in many of the holes in her past.

My guess so far:

Letter-4?-5-7-4?-?

She is a bay mare with a white stripe (JC would probably call it a star connected to a stripe) that widens at the bridge of her nose and goes all of the way down to her upper lip as well as her lower lip.

She has 4 white socks, higher in the rear. We are estimating her age between 10-16 years but most likely around 13ish.

She is very sweet so I would love to find out who she is.

Yearling
I just ran what I thought was letter C and the first number 6 but the first numbers only go up to 5. The first character is always a letter as it designates the birth year. It could be a C or G. O birth year is either 2011 or 1995. A C would make her 14 (1999) and G would make her 10 (2003).

Running a G, no digit, 4, 5, no digit, no digit and the markings the list is coming up with 15 possibles matching a bay mare, star, stripe and 4 white socks.

Running a C, no digit, 4, 5, no digit, no digit and the markings the list is coming up with 17 possibles matching a bay mare, star, stripe and 4 white socks.

Do you have an account at the Jockey Club interactive site? You can read over the descriptions of the markings and get an idea of the numbers that match. It may help you figure out the questionable numbers.
