Question TB Lines

Hopefully I am posting this in the correct section. My OTTB is 17. He has a tattoo on the inside of his bottom lip, that over time has become just little dots. The last 3 or so numbers/letters are the only ones that are legible. I was wondering if any of the databases would be able to help possibly find his pedigree with just those last few numbers. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Have you tried contacting the jockey club? They not only keep track of tattoos but exactly what each TB looks like. Maybe they can find it based on your three numbers and description?

Here is the link to the tattoo identifier,https://www.registry.jockeyclub.com/...TOKEN=93593649 you need to know the letter, but if you know about how old your Tb is guessing the letter is pretty easy, my TB all I knew for sure was 466 but I knew she was in her early teens so I just tried the letters z-c ish with those numbers and eventually I found her, her letter was an A...if you can get a pic we may be able to help decipher some more of the tattoo.

When you click on a horse they give you a description of their white marking so you can be pretty sure when you found the right horse

I am going to try to get a picture of his tattoo today when I go to the barn after work. I know how old he is and he has ZERO white on him what so ever. I don't know his racing name either unfortunately. The girl I lease him from also changed his name when she got him and his show name was also changed. So that doesnt help much either.

Rachael I don't quite get the letter thing, does that tattoo begin with a letter?

I thought TB tattoos were on the inside of their upper lips and not their lower ones?

maybe they are all different? Beau has on on the bottom lip on the inside so when you flip his lip over you can see it.

This would be a first that I have heard of. Hopefully someone that knows more about TBs and their registration will chime in.

Hopefully, I am going to ask my BO too because the man she bought the barn from used to breed TBs for racing.
