Indiana Thoroughbred Breeders Reminded of Foal Registration Deadlines  

As the end of 2018 fast approaches, the Indiana Thoroughbred Breed Development Program would like to remind breeders and foal owners to check their foals’ registration statuses with the program to avoid late fees.

Foals born in 2018 must have a completed application on file within 12 months of the horse’s foaling date. If the foal is not registered by this date, a late fee will be assessed in accordance to the following schedule:

12 months + 1 day to December 31 of yearling year > $200
2 Year Old Year > $400
3 Year Old Year > $1,000

Any Thoroughbred foaled in the state of Indiana must have his dam registered with the program. Mares should have entered the state by November 1 in the year prior to foaling, and remain in Indiana continuously until foaling. They should have their registration on file by November 1.

However, mares entering the state of Indiana are still invited to register with the program to have a certified Indiana-bred foal. If they enter the state, and register with the program, after November 1, they must breed back to an Indiana stallion after foaling. (Exception: Mares purchased at a publicly advertised sale and shipped to the state within two weeks of the sale.)

Breeders must remember that just because the mare is registered with the program, the process is only half-way complete—all foals must be registered as well.

If you have questions as to whether your foal is a registered Indiana-bred, please call the IHRC office and speak with Sara: 317-234-2542. You can also access an always up-to-date list on the Indiana Horse Racing Commission’s website:

The Thoroughbred Breed Development program was established to promote the Indiana Thoroughbred industry. In 2007, legislation was passed which approved slot machines at Indiana's pari-mutuel racetracks. The Indiana Thoroughbred Breed Development Fund receives 40% of the revenue generated from slot machines that is allocated for Thoroughbred Racing.
