I’m not sure if this was the correct place to put this so sorry if it isn’t!
My boyfriend was given a free registered thoroughbred ( more than one but the issue is just with this one, by his uncle) about five years ago. His uncle never gave him the papers, they never switched names of ownership there’s not proof that they had any type of ‘deal’. The horse was around two when my boyfriend got her. He broke her, trained her, paid for everything since she came into his care while his uncle did nothing. She is now for sale and the Uncle is demanding money (HALF of what he is selling her for!!!) He’s using the papers and it being in his name as some type of leverage to make sure he gets what he thinks he deserves for her(Which in reality is a whole lot of nothing)
Does him having the papers mean anything at this point? It’s been five years… She’s showing rated shows and we need the papers to go to ones that we have planned and for her to be in his name, is there any way of getting them through the Jockey Club with out having his signature??
I’m at such a lose of what to do at this point… any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
