Sambo Secretariat's great-great grandson?!
Okay, so we ran Sam's tattoo number yesterday on the Jockey Club website and the first page popped up like this:
Name: Symmetry Spire
YOB: 1995 (the same year I was born)
Dam's name: The Lady Rules
Color: Drk Bay
Okay, so that was cool! We ended up spending $8 on his race records, and he had 15 total starts, 5 firsts, 1 second and 1 Third, with a total lifetime earnings of $28,246. That was even cooler, until we downloaded the free pedigree. His sire (Mountain Cat) was by Storm Cat. Storm Cat's dam Terlingua was sired by Secretariat!! His broodmare sire was Raise a Regal, sired by Raise a Native, sired by Native Dancer. So, I was pretty excited!
I want to search his owner's name and maybe see if we can contact them if they've got pics. (oh, and he was born in Maryland...how'd he end up two hours away from the Pacific ocean?)
Any feedback would be soo appreciated!
That's very cool! I've often wondered how horses I've owned end up where they were when I bought them.
That is what I did with my APHA mare. I researched where she came from and I got in contact with her breeders. I found out that they have a website and I got to see pics of her dam and sire. Pretty sweet stuff :lol: Congrats!
Ok, so now I feel like a total idiot - I got his tattoo # wrong!
Anyways, Mr Prospector Horse Pedigree.
Here's his granddad's pedigree. Check it out! He's related to:
Mine That Bird
and a few more. (How I found out these horses were Mr. Prospector's offspring? Mr. Prospector - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )
I simply typed in these horse's names and found some of the same horses in their pedigree's as Sams. Oh, and his REAL (I know I'm right this time - one of the Jockey Club people confirmed it) name is "Worthy Find." Type in his name, too, and see what comes up!
With Thoroughbreds, almost all of them can be traced back to famous horses since breeders want a winner's characteristics in their own line. My own ottb is the grandson of Man O War on his dam and sire's side.
Mr Prospector is a famous race horse in his own right....which is becoming a very popular line for breeding.
Our mare has Mr Prospector lines....of which we are breeding to a son of Seattle Slew.
I love going thru the pedigree's....its very exciting!
Hey, Rosie, your TB looks like William, my mom's horse!
Yeah, since William and Sam are both related to each other and Mr. Prospector, we figured that all the Thoroughbreds are pretty closely intertwined. Neat stuff though, definitely.
native dancer is in my geldings lines too =)
Sambo, maybe they are related! :) I love horses that have names like William. It gives them a whole different name-personality hehe. :) William sounds regal ;)
In a way, he can be regal...but mostly goofy! I might post pics of him on here, another time...
