Hi, I know it’s a long shot, but I’m looking for the history on a TB horse of a friend of mine. According to his passport he was born 4/23/2013, sire Authorized, dam Teyateyaneng by Hawk Wing. Large bay with a blaze and one lh white foot, do t know his exact height but guessing 16.3 or up.
Bred by Southill Stud (on which I unfortunately can’t really find anything, except that it must be somewhere in Somerset. I can find that in 2016 he was sold at auction Commissioned by Kilmoney Cottage Stud and bought by James Nash, both in Ireland. I can see in his passport he got his shots in 2017 and 2018 in Kildare, after that, nothing has been added to his passport until he turned up in the Netherlands in late 2020 at some shoddy dealer, where he was bought by a friend of mine. The horse is unnamed, and I’ve learned that this means he’s unraced.
we have doubts that this horse has the right passport, he seems older than 8. Microchip is unreadable, so yeah, lots of red flags.
He was sold as a riding horse, but has an old and very severe injury as we learned. His left stifle and hip/pelvis have been severely injured, torn ligaments and fractures. It has long since ‘healed’, but this horse should never have been ridden or transported, and actually he can’t ever walk pain free. Everything has healed crooked, he’s missing ligaments and there’s lots of arthritis and bone remodeling.
I’m curious if anyone here knows this horse (or the horse he should be according to his passport).

I'd say that is the right horse. The markings match what the bloodlines throw out. The chip should be readable but yes, no name means he has never ran. It is entirely possible he never raced because he fractured his pelvis at some point which is surprisingly common in young flat horses. As to how and why he ended up in a dealers yard in the Netherlands is anyones guess but I can only assume he has been passed from pillar to post a little bit since his racing days.

What made me doubt if this was the right horse is his teeth, I’m usually pretty good at estimating age by teeth, and I’ve never seen an 8yo with teeth as long and slanted as his. Also the cups of the teeth are round, not oval.
