 Looking Back

This month in mid-atlantic thoroughbred history! For Looking Back archives click here.

Mrs. H. Lebowitz, of Newark, N.J., won Atlantic City’s All American Handicap with the 4-year-old Maryland-bred colt Turbine, trained by P. DaLee Watts. Bred by Mrs. Danny Shea, Turbine completed the 1 3/16 miles in 1:57 3/5.

  • Editor Humphrey Finney reported on tattoos for horse identification: “While at Saratoga we watched the process of tattooing young Thoroughbreds, and observed a number of horses that had been so marked for a number of years. After seeing some of the Remount’s earlier experiments with the tattoo plan, and also observing the operations at the Pomona Remount Depot in California, the Maryland Horse takes the position that the tattooing of Thoroughbreds is feasible, practical and desirable. It will be necessary to work out plans for the marking of horses in a uniform manner and at the right stage of their development, as well as other details. It is up to the Jockey Club to state its position in the matter, for other racing authorities to follow. We think that all horses should be properly identified and tattooed before ever starting in a race.”
