View Full Version : Looking for Registered name of Aussie-bred TB mare now in USA

Hi All

A friend of mine in the USA is looking for the registered name and any registration details on an Australian-bred TB mare. This mare is a valued member of their family, and has had a foal that they'd like to register, but they have no details on the mare's registration. Maybe someone on CH could help??

The mare was shown under two names: "Kookaburra" and "Just for Fun".
Her Sire: Foscarini
Her Dam: April Sands
DOB 10-1-90
Exported to US in late 90s as a Grand Prix jumper.

Any help would be appreciated!!!
