I emailed the Jockey Club, told them how I got Lil, they sent me something on how I can get her papers, so it may still be possible to get them, but still may not! lol

"If you purchased or acquired your horse without papers, please be aware it may not be possible to obtain a duplicate.

Please refer to the following requirements, all of which must be met, regarding the issuance of a Duplicate Certificate of Foal Registration as stated in Rule 9 of The American Stud Book Principal Rules and Requirements.

A. If a Certificate of Foal Registration has been lost or destroyed, a Duplicate Certificate of Foal Registration may be issued by the Registry Office upon submission of the following:
1. A check or money order payable to The Jockey Club covering the prescribed fee (see Fee Schedule);
2. A set of four color photographs of the horse (front, both sides, and rear views) clearly showing the color, and the markings (or lack of markings) on the head, legs and body;
3. A completed and signed Duplicate Certificate Form containing the written description of the markings on the horse, including the exact location of the head and neck cowlicks;
4. A notarized statement from the owner or his authorized agent describing the circumstances under which the Certificate of Foal Registration was lost or destroyed;
5. Proof of ownership of that specific horse (for example, a bill of sale or cancelled check including the name or pedigree of the horse, date of sale and the name of the new owner); and
6. Any further evidence and assurances as The Jockey Club may require, such as genetic typing and/or parentage verification.

A complete copy of The American Stud Book: Principal Rules and Requirements may be accessed at The Jockey Club: Dedicated to the Improvement of Thoroughbred Breeding and Racing Since 1894. "

Oh, I know. I just have to decide if I want to go through all that trouble for a copy that actually means nothing. I just can't breed her to certain breeds if I want a registered foal.

Since we're talking TBs, is there any way to find out if a mare has had foals? O.o

equibase is a great source of information, I believe I found information regarding foals out of a mare I used to groom while i lived in Canada on it.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

The OTTB I've been riding since about August and who I will hopefully own a week from now is named Spike. His registered name? Just Call Me Spike. It's a shame I hate the name Spike - but I won't change it. He never raced. His sire, Ormsby, a graded stakes winner... disappeared off the face of the earth, so I'm thinking about calling the farm where he used to stand to find out about him. Spike's dam, Just Call Me Opie, never raced. The cool part about his breeding is he is not inbred within the first 5 generations of his pedigree, which is pretty darn rare for a TB. But being a racing fan, his race history and the difficulty I'm having conducting research is disappointing. And his papers were likely destroyed to keep him off the track. But he's a wonderful horse (and I have memorized his tattoo number).

Yikes. Talk about requirement city to get a duplicate of his papers. I can understand why though. I'm sure some idiot out there tried to use a horse's papers on a different horse. It's pretty cool being able to look them up by their tattoos though. Got to love those OTTBs! :)

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.
