OMG YAY !
I found out yesterday, that indigo had a tattoo.. so i was on a mission to find out his bloodlines etc.
Well me and Niki took on the task and she found him !

But it turn's out.
His racing name was Silver Willow
he is 19 years old.
He was Started 15 Times ( anyone want to find out for me how many he won?)

Your guy raced in Canada, and out of his 15 starts, he won won race, with no 2nds or 3rds, and he won $1869.

Used to be, the Jockey Club called grey horses who started out black or nearly black "roan", and called grey horses who started out chestnut or bright bay "grey"-- however in more recent years to reduce confusion (?LOL) without giving up their "traditional" use of the terms, they call anything going grey "grey/roan". Confusing I know, but breed registries don't always keep up with genetic research/more technical/specific terminology for colors.

He doesn't look closely related at all, but your guy resembles my mare, Chrissy's Legacy.

She liked to run a little more than he did tho'...... :lol:



Here is her sire, Finocchio-- your photos of your guy in the snow remind me so much of this photo taken by Finocchio's owners when he was an older stallion!

Thank you eastowest :)
Even if he only won one race, that is fine with me :)
The Amount he won in his racing career, can never outnumber how much i care for him :)

That is rather confusing also about the genetic's.

here are the names that I recognize as "good" names to have in a TB pedigree:

Dam's side: Hyperion, Mahuba, Fair Play, Man O' War, Sir Gallahad, War Glory

Sire's side: Hoist the Flag, War Admiral, Man O' War, Tourbillon, Rosemont (he won the Santa Anita handicap in that race against Seabiscuit), Nearco, Pharos, Hyperion

Pretty good overall :D

Hey twister...
Yes EventerDrew is right he does have some goodies in there.
Interesting he is a really late foal born on June 29.
At some point he was gelded down the road since they have him in the registry as a "horse"
Turn-To was another one I remember as well as Decidedly.
When I was a kid I had memorized all Triple Crown winners and Kentucky Derby winners....lol
My friend and i I loved to play games with the names.
Now that one can look up the lines on the internet...haha there are all kinds of neat things you can do The site I use lets you make up "hypathetical foals" by plugging in a sire and dam...it costs I think to do it but kinda interesting.
www.equineline.com
When you look up horses there if it says at the top under their name that the horse is a "Black-Type Winner" it means they are a Stakes winner!
Kinda cool.
Merry Christmas

Just thought i could add.
That i am capable of editing or adding info to his Pedigree, Should i ?
I would probably be only adding that he is a gelding, he is 16.2 HH and adding a photo or something.
