Thumbs up My LONG search is over!

So FINALLY after 2 years of searching, I have made contact with Pride's race trainer!! Geez took long enough I am so excited I just had to share. He immediately knew who I was talking about when I mentioned his name and had great things to say about him and was honest about health issues and behavioral issues which I can now take into consideration with his training. He even wants to come and see him sometime :). He also gave me contact info for the previous owner who hopefully has race pics and baby pics *crossing my fingers* I am just happy to know he was really cared for and loved before I got him. YAY

I definitely will post pictures if I am lucky enough to get them. I am ecstatic at the moment. I am just happy to have some connection to his past and prior training. I was told they wanted to keep him a stud due to his build, speed and pedigree but he was WAY TOO MUCH TO HANDLE so they gelded him at the age of 3. The trainer was the only person able to handle him up to that point. Even after he was and still is a very STRONG horse (physically and mentally) He still believes he is the best thing on the planet The trainer really believed he would go pretty far in racing but he kept having issues with splints (hence the pin firing in both front legs). The owner didn't want to wait until he matured since he was such a big boned horse and needed more time. I was told he colicked and had a bad respiratory infection and almost passed . He recovered but the owners didn't want to put in much more money unless he was a guarantee money maker so he was sold. Just hoping for pics, I will update if I get any news!!

Update : I talked to the Breeder/Owner and then the partner owner who kept him at their racing stable. A little odd when talking with the breeder/owner she is around 80 or 90 and seems like a sweetie but unfortunatley she does not have any pictures of him but did remember him. She stated that he was stolen...... she said a trainer took him and he never came back she couldn't give me a name of who "stole" him though. So I am not really sure about that but the JC papers are signed over from her and her husband... The other owners were ecstatic to hear from me They are looking to see if they have any pics or video of him. They said he was an amazing runner during his workouts and had crazy times but he never would run in a race like he would at home. So they live around 45 minutes away from me and I may go meet them and bring Pride for them to see. They have tons of acreage to ride on so it may be cool to take him for a trail ride with them and chat.
Also it took me two years of internet research to contact everyone..... I never thought about calling the racing commission and asking for phone numbers for the people listed on his papers. I didn't think it was that easy but it is LOL

Hopefully pictures or video soon
