A permanent, indelible mark on the inside of the upper lip used to identify the horse. In Quarter Horses the letter/number combination is five numbers or four numbers ending in a letter. In Thoroughbreds, it is a letter followed by five numbers.

From Michele: "I took this photo on February 9th during my first trip to Gulfstream Park. I went there specifically to see the Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap and the show down between Animal Kingdom and Point of Entry and was not disappointed!"
