I once found a TB I galloped, at Re-Run in Ky. I contacted the director there, and td her everything I knew about him, and also gave her my contact I do for any potential adopters. Not long after a woman contacted me, and eventually adopted him. She later told me that it was hearing all of my stories about his early years that sealed the deal for her.
UPDATE - Thanks to catknsn, we now have a list of every TB that has been named on this thread, so far. If you would like to add a TB - or TBs - please post their names on this thread, or contact catknsn.
Seeing how small the horse community really is, I thought it would be neat if we could post all the Thoroughbreds we have trained/ridden/owned and cared for, and compare notes. Who knows....you may find out what hapened to that TB you once galloped years ago.

ummmm let see.... These are old horses that we owned, trained, etc.....
Act Straight-still have( mama)
Naked Inspiration- Still have- his new show name is Naughty By Nathan
Counting on Brian- Still have- He new s/n is Hot Topic.
Give me A Buck- he is now I think a Amatuer/Owner I would love to see how he is. There is no Tattoo, he was never raced, but was in training. He is about 17.2 hands with a broken off centered strip. I dont have any pics of him on the computer, I will get some soon
Canaros sp? I was young
The Shadow Knows
Freebird! Was Delightfully Irish a big chestnut (16.3) gelding w/a hind sock and a star/stripe? Very handsome. If so, I think I own him now!
Nope. Delightfully Irish was a mare that my husband and I bred, that ended up maturing at 14.2 1/2 hands. After my husband and I seperated I gave her back to husband who donated her to some woman in Athens I think, though I haven't anything more about her. She's 7 and a light bay with a checkmark on her forhead. I sure miss my Maggie Mae.
I galloped on a training farm and didn't know most of their JC names (plus it was 20 years ago!) But here are a few I did know from that farm:
These guys we own now but they are all 15-20 yrs. old!

I remember him from his days owned by Kinross Farm and being a steeplechaser.
Awwww.......I haven't seen him since he was a weanling. He and his dam, With Love belonged to my boss - the trainer of the farm I galloped/worked at, and also the father of my H/J instructor. We called him Derby at the farm, and he was a pistol! He would beat up on the other babies - as well as his mama, lol - and even broke my finger when he decided to rear up one day and my finger got in the way. We always said he would be a great 'chaser, with his build.
He did fairly well as a chaser. I can't remember if Kinross sold him or he got claimed...but I remember him being a PITA at the races. But...Neil does really well with horses that have quirks. I think all of his really nice racers have all had something funny about them (I think it's Sur La Tete that is clostraphobic (sp?)).
You all are going to make me think to remember all the ones I've ridden. That's a BIG list! I'll get back to work and think on it...and post back
