Hold Over, that would be the horse we came up with off of Buddy's partial tattoo and matching markings.
He was born Feb. 12, 1996, Sired by One In a Mil, out of Arizona Native. He has 20 starts and is a race winner. Bred by Triple AAA Ranch, Glendale AZ.
Now, that being said...It's still a little bit of a guess. What I thought was a 'Z' ended up being a 2 and the actual letter that begins his tattoo is mostly illegible, even with a blacklight. What I thought was a 6 was actually a 0, so what we did was match the 2150 (partial tattoo, missing the year born letter and the last number) to a description of the markings of a horse in the appropriate age bracket. Actually Hold Over is the ONLY horse that came up within a 10 year age bracket (15-25)...but the markings listed exactly match Buddy's.
Out of curiosity, I located a number for and called the owner of Triple AAA Ranch...and what a nice guy. He expressed, what sounded to be, genuine sorrow to hear that one of the horses he bred for ended up in such a bad way and he thanked me for taking Buddy in and giving him a good home. He did not remember 'Hold Over' and said that probably meant that the horse was sold as a youngster and raced by someone else. He encouraged me to contact the Jockey Club again and request more information on the horse. Such as; last recorded owner and his race records to see when the last time he was raced was and who raced him-owner, trainer, etc. So hopefully I'll have more information on him soon. :-)
