The Jockey Club reminds owners of unregistered yearlings and 2-year-olds that the requirements for foal registration must be completed by December 31, 2010, to avoid additional late registration fees. In addition, registration for Virginia-bred foals is due the same day for eligiblity in the Virginia Breeders Fund.

The Jockey Club’s late registration fee increases from $525 to $775 after December 31 of the yearling year and from $775 to $2,000 after December 31 of the 2-year-old year.  The registration fee for Virginia-bred foals remains $25.

Interactive RegistrationTM (IR) is the most efficient means to complete the Application for Foal Registration and other registration requirements. IR enables customers to check the status of their applications and, through the Registration Center, view and resolve outstanding conditions of registration. The Jockey Club also recommends using IR to upload digital foal identification photos as the online service accepts all standard file formats and file sizes up to 10 MB.

The easiest way to register your Virginia-bred foal is to call or email the VTA office.  540-347-4313 or bredfund at
