|End-of-Year Deadline for Foal Registration Applications Approaching|
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.
The 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.
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.
Available at no charge at registry.jockeyclub.com, IR has processed more than 1 million transactions since its launch in 1996.
