To those who frequent the racing forum,
I am looking for suggestions for how to track down some information about a thoroughbred mare who came off the track in 2005. Currently her story has a wonderful happy ending with student of a good friend of mine who events, and I, an English teacher and writer, would like to record it in some way. I have had contact with the owner who first purchased her from racing people, and so have filled in that part of the story. I am working on the part of the story that brought her from Washington state to Maine. What I don’t have at all is the first part of her story…
I do know that she came out of Ohio, was owned or trained by Tom Walters, and Kevin Chandler was listed on her coggins paperwork. I do not want to be intrusive or in any way inappropriate, but I’d love to fill in the beginning of her life, so I can write her whole story.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
