While the changes apply to various parts of the rule book, the more noteworthy changes were made to support the Registry’s operations and customers’ interactions with the Registry in connection with the increased use of digital certificates of foal registration, which started with the 2018 foal crop. The glossary of terms was expanded to include Certificate Manager and rules 2, 7, and 21 include new references to Digital Certificates or Certificate Managers.
“The updated rule book accounts for recent modernizations to the Registry that streamline processes and enhance customer convenience,” said Matt Iuliano, executive vice president and executive director of The Jockey Club. “We recommend that owners and breeders consult registry.jockeyclub.com to find the most current rules in full.”
