Breed Fund Administrative Rule Change

Thursday, October 20, 2022

Categories: Commission Minutes

Breed Fund Rule Changes - effective October 1, 2022

The Administrative Rule change to the Breed Fund was approved and adopted on October 1, 2022. All of the Breed Fund forms have been updated to reflect these changes. Please use the new forms that are located at the bottom of the Breeders Fund page. If old forms are submitted, they will be unrecorded and returned to you. 

The major changes are:

1. The registration fee for a foal, broodmare, or stallion is now a one-time fee of $30. Once the horse has been registered in the breed fund, there is not any additional fees to be paid. The paperwork must still be submitted to register a broodmare or stallion, if they were registered as a foal. 

2. If you want to register a foal after December 31 of their foaling year, the late fee will now be $300. 

3. If you utilize embryo transfer with a broodmare, there is a form that must be completed and submitted by November 1 of the breeding year. The form is called Recipient Mare Request (SFN 62243). The form is at the bottom of this page. This change will be effective for the calendar year 2023. 

For a complete list of the updated breed fund rules, please refer to: https://www.ndlegis.gov/information/acdata/pdf/69.5-01-09.pdf

This return to the letter of our regulations is intended to prevent possible fraud and support investigation of Foal registrations to protect ND horsemen's Breed Fund.

2016 ND Bred Program

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 at 11:30 am

2016 ND Bred Program

In-State Racing

$225,000 has been made available by the ND Racing Commission from the ND Breed Fund to provide breeders awards for 2016 in-state racing. The in-state minimum guaranteed Breed Fund pool of $150,000 has been extended an additional year through 2019.

Out-of-State Racing

$50,000 has been made available by the ND Racing Commission from the ND Breed Fund to provide breeders awards for ND-breds racing in out-of-state races. The following rules apply:

  • Points will be awarded January 1 through June 2 and August 5 through October 30, 2016;
  • No out-of-state points will be awarded for races held June 3 through August 4, 2016;
  • Distributions shall be in accordance with current in-state rules;
  • It is the responsibility of the foal/mare/stallion owner to provide the Commission with out-of-state race results;
  • Only official race results from Equibase, Daily Racing Form, or Trueform Racing Services will be accepted and must be sent to the ND Racing Commission Office;
  • All results must be postmarked no later than October 31, 2016.

No out-of-state points can be awarded for dates beyond October 30, 2016 due to NDCC 53-06.2-11(6) which requires that Breed Fund money needs to be distributed in the same calendar year it is earned. In order to comply with this state statute, the Breed Fund administrator needs the last month and a half to two months in order to calculate awards. In order to alleviate this problem a change to statute would be required.

Notice to Horsemen

Tuesday, November 24, 2015 at 12:00 pm

Effective January 1, 2016: Pursuant to Administrative Rule 69.5-01-09-02(4)(g) a foal registered by an owner who does not reside in North Dakota must be inspected by a North Dakota state-licensed veterinarian at the expense of the owner. A copy of the Racing Commission’s Veterinarian Certificate for Out-of-State Owners form can be found on the Commission website on the Horsemen/Breeders Fund tab. While enforcement of this rule may have been lax in the past, the rule will be strictly enforced for any foals registered on or after January 1, 2016. Any registration for a foal with an out-of-state owner not accompanied by the certificate of inspection will be rejected.

At its May 28, 2015 meeting the North Dakota Racing Commission, pursuant to Admin Rule 69.5-01-02-01(2), modified its medication rules to include the regulation of cobalt as follows:

No penalty for cobalt concentrations of less than 25 parts per billion (ppb) of blood serum or plasma.
For cobalt concentrations of 25 ppb or greater but less than 50 ppb of blood plasma or serum the recommended penalty is a written warning or fine and the placement of the horse on the Veterinarians List with removal from list only after a blood test confirms that the concentration is below 25 ppb of blood plasma or serum. Testing shall be paid by the owner(s) of the horse.
Concentrations of 50 ppb or greater in blood plasma or serum have a recommended “B” penalty.
