Microchips to Become Requirement for Registration Starting with Foals of 2017

Nate Kruska

The Jockey Club’s Board of Stewards voted to change certain provisions of the Principal Rules & Requirements of the American Stud Book &, as a result, microchips will become a requirement for registration for foals of 2017 and later.

The microchips will be used in conjunction with official markings to provide an effective means of confirming the identity of Thoroughbreds for the duration of their lives.

Beginning with foals born in 2017, a microchip will be provided with all registration application and genetic sampling kits. In 2016, owners will have the option to request free microchips with registration & genetic sampling kits when they report the birth of a live foal. There will be no increase in registration fees.
