She could never be on the track if she didn't have papers or if the breeder decided that they didn't (or couldn't) want to race her.

If you are buying this horse with the excuses the breeder is giving you then there is something very suspicious about the deal. If you chose to buy her anyways then know that all the facts have not been given to you.

It is always buyer beware.

Is it possible that she was an AI baby and the COULDN'T register her? From what I understand all registered TB's must be live cover.
If she were AI then yes she could not be registered then why didn't the breeder just say so?

If she is registered but under another name and they are keeping her papers for ????? Then check out the foals registered to the sire that were born the same year she was and see if there may be something there.

The owner may owe money to the breeder and he is holding the registration papers over her head until the debt is finalized. Good for them...not for you.

If he was honest he would have given you a REAL valid reason the mare is not registered.

The owner got the mare for free, so no problems there. I don't know about the breeder though.

How would you go about looking up the list of foals from Kiri's Clown? I will do that if I can figure out how!

Have you tried contacting the American Jockey Club? I don't know if they would beale to point you in the right direction?

If your TB was on the track, as Spyder said - she would of been registred...and tattoo'd. My TB is Tattoo'd but his papers have been lost in time - so I know he's registered, because he's tattoo'd.

Spyder is correct though, I would really be doing my investigating.

Yeah she wasn't on the track. I don't know why I said she was before.

As far as I can gather- the dam, Ransom Note doesn't have any registered foals.

The owner may have gotten the mare for free because there were problems in the registration (the ones I mentioned or it was done AI).

If the mare has no registered foals then you do not need to check the sires foal base.

I notice that the mare has no race record and it could be that the papers for the mare are lost, mislaid or never were.

If you are set on this mare ..negotiate a decent price based on GRADE status (should be way less than they are probably asking) for she cannot be listed in any other way....then register her in one of the three registries I mentioned.

There is a history to this mare that is being kept from you....of that I am sure.

They aren't asking anything. She is free only because the owner of this mare has a Training and Prelim horses that she needs to compete and doesn't have time for this one.

The mare is registered. She would not be on pedigreequery if she were not registered. But I don't think she raced.

From what I understand not all TB's have to be registered. Apparently she was small from birth and they decided that she wasn't going to grow big enough for the track. This person races horses today and doesn't appear to have any problems with the jockey club. I have seen unregistered TB's before so I don't think all of them have to be registered to be TB's.

I really don't believe there is anything about her that is mysterious. She has had two owners- her breeder and her current owner. They live right next to eachother and she hasn't lived anywhere else. Her dam is registered and her sire is registered. Brothers and sisters are racing and the man that bred her is in good standing with the jockey club.

I was wondering if you had any good barn names that started with "D". I am getting a new mare and her barn name is Drew... yeah... I'm not changing my name so she is going to change hers . She is 6 and knows the sound of the "D" so it must be something that starts with that letter. !
A horse will answer to anything you call it. Our trainer bought our gelding for us and he forgot his barn name. My daughter decided she wanted his name to start with a J. I went online and went through baby naming sites until I found a name she liked. She wanted a name that meant something. She liked the sound of Joshua and the name's meaning.

We later discovered his barn name had been Benny. Joshua and Benny don't sound a thing alike and Joshua doesn't give a lick. He comes when you call his name, Joshua.

I had a TB mare that was one of several horses given away when a man died. I got all of her paperwork with her, but she wasn't registered with the jockey club. I found out from the owner of the sire that it was because of an unpaid breeding fee.

How about "Deuce" or "Deucie" for a barn name, since she is Drew number Two?
