Old owners and Jockey club papers.

Hello all,

Just thought I would ask a bit of advice from y'all. I Bought a TB stallion back in January... His old owner said she would mail his papers. She has still not done so. I harass her about it every other week or so (starting two months after I got him). I have to call from different phone numbers so she dosent screen my call. She says she has them but keeps forgetting to mail them, but won't let me come pick them up??? He is a gelding now so maybe I'm being petty but I want those papers. Is there any reason she would act this way? Maybe she dosen't really have them? She has a large "prior racehorse" business, and large breeding barn... Not a backyard breeder. He raced so I know he had them at some point. Maybe I should just go about getting them from the jockey club. I read that I can do that.

I'm not sure why she would be stalling sending you his JC papers, especially since he's a gelding now. They're pretty useless, unless he was going to be raced again.

I got JJ's JC papers mailed to me after I took him home, as his owner/trainer didn't have them on her the day I picked him up.

I'd contact the Jockey Club to see if you can get a copy of his papers. I don't know why his previous owner is being such a PITA about them.

I would contact the American Jockey Club to inform them of the situation, and make sure you let them know that ownership has been transferred to you. That way, the person with the papers cannot claim "Stollen Horse" or anything like that.

That way, the AJC can log everything into their computers/paper work as to whom the owner currently is. So it is documented, covers your patootie.

That's what I'm concerned about too, MIE; that the old owner might be planning to claim the horse was stolen.

But then, I've run across far too many scummy people in the horse world over a lot of years, and am probably just being paranoid.

I don't know that I am worried SHE will report him stolen. I have a bill of sale, and bank transfer records. I think most likely she does not have them. Worst case in my mind is she was not authorized to sell him, and his real owner wont relinquish papers. I find it fishy that she wont let me drop by and pick them up. I think I will call the jockey club just in case.
