Important Deadlines for Horsemen

IMPORTANT DEADLINES FOR HORSEMEN In order to receive Stallion Awards on foals conceived during the 2017 breeding season, a stallion must be accredited and his annual administrative fee for the 2017 season must be paid.

If you stood a stallion in Texas for the 2017 breeding season, but have not yet accredited him, you have until August 1 to do so for $100.  Any stallion accreditation applications postmarked after August 1 will not apply to the 2017 breeding season, but will apply to 2018.

If you have not yet paid your stallion’s Annual Administrative Fee for the 2017 breeding season, the deadline for late payment of $325 is August 1, 2017.  If this is the stallion’s first year in Texas and he came into the state after February 1, you may pay the normal admin fee of $200. The Annual Administrative Fee cannot be accepted for the current breeding season after the August 1 deadline.

The deadline to nominate stallions to the Texas Stallion Stakes Series for the 2017 breeding season is October 1, 2017.  Only Accredited Texas stallions may be nominated.  The nomination fee is the greater of $1500 or the advertised stud fee for stallions standing their first season in Texas.  Stallions not new to the state in 2017 must also pay a $500 late nomination fee.

October 1 is also the deadline to pay any balance owed for stallions early nominated to the TSSS for the 2017 breeding season.  Invoices will mail in early September.

Rules and Regulations for the Accredited Texas-bred Program state:

“A photocopy of the annual ‘Report of Mares Bred’ shall be submitted to the TTA office on or before the date required by The Jockey Club (August 1).”

If you file your Report of Mares Bred electronically, you have the opportunity to print the report before filing so that you may make a copy to send to TTA.

We will double check the accreditation status of the mares on a report and notify the stallion owner so that breeders are more likely to be eligible for ATB breeder awards on their coming foals.
