New Foal and Owner Registration Rules

In a move to safeguard the integrity of racing and enhance the industry's commitment to animal welfare, Racing Australia has introduced national rules that require unnamed horses and their owners to be identified and subject to the Australian Rules of Racing.

This means a foal will not be accepted into the Australian Stud Book unless Foal Ownership Declaration Forms have been submitted by all beneficial owners. Additional Infromation:

Horses Gaining an advantage at the start
