Registrar of Racehorses
Application to Register a Horse
Please note that the Australian Racing Board ratified amendments to AR.18 of the Australian Rules of Racing which took effect 1 October 2012. The Registration Form was updated 1 October 2012. From 1 November 2012 the Registrar will only accept Registration Forms using the most current version of the Registration Form dated 1 October 2012.
Please select one of the following forms based on the number of owners with a share in the horse. An owner can be a natural person, registered syndicate, company, firm or stud.
Please Note: From 1 November 2011, the Horse Registration fee will increase to $110 and the Additional Horse Fee applicable to registered syndicates with an interest in a horse (except if it is the first horse to be registered in the syndicate's name) will increase to $40. Fees have not increased since 2003 and this additional amount will assist in contributing to rising administration costs. Please note that $20 of each registration fee is paid to the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation for the purposes of equine research.
