Foal registrations will be due August 31 of the foaling year.

Please be aware the Minnesota Racing Commission has revised the date Standardbred Foal Registrations are due. This change will be in effect starting with the 2021 foal crop. The new
foal registration dates are as follows:

Foal registrations will be due August 31 of the foaling year.

Foal registrations received after August 31 of the foaling year will be assessed a $50 late fee.

Foal registrations received after January 1 of the year after foaling will be assessed a $100 late fee.

Foal registrations received ANY TIME after the horses two-year-old year will be assessed a $300 late fee.

Please be aware the Minnesota Racing Commission DOES NOT require the foal to be officially named at the time of submitting the foal certification to the Commission. This means you can send the Foal Registration Application without an official foal name. The form must otherwise be complete to be processed.
