Tried to add MSW winner from Aqueduct, Devilishameye. Had the right parents in the choices, but got this message. From the chart:

Winner: Devilishameye, dark bay or brown filly by Devil His Due out of Shambidextress, by Sham. Foaled March 19,2006, in New York.

This is the same 'glitch' as before - but now the DB is giving an error message instead of pretending the horse was added succesfully. It's a step in the right direction.

Here she is:

Could someone unlock Dunboyne (1884) and add that he was the Preakness winner in 1887, and that his owner/breeder was W. Jennings?

http://www.preakness.com/preaknessWinners

The spelling of his name was "Dunbine" in decades of older DRF publications, but the publications of the time all refer to him as Dunboyne.

Which brings the question: before the Jockey Club was born, exactly what determines the accepted spelling for those older horses? For example, all of the contemporary literature spelled it "Firenzi" instead of "Firenze." And ALL of the literature spelled it "Jean Beraud" instead of "Jean Bereaud."

Done.

A/the Stud Book, if there's an entry for the horse, 'trumps' racing rcds., which were often initially compiled from handwritten info subj. to mis-transcription.

I have one more request. Here is an article about the bad luck horse Eurus - 1887 Suburban winner - regarding his death, and a large hidden tumor with which he evidently ran with courage. Could this information be added to his pedigree info?
