Please be advised that at the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association Annual General Meeting held on Tuesday, 23 April 2019, it was agreed that an additional Breeder Foal Levy will be charged on all initial foal registrations to assist with the funding of SA Equine Health and Protocols NPC (SAEHP), in order to obtain direct export approval through the European Union. This fee will be levied on all 2018 foals onwards.

Breeders who have already paid the 2018 foal fees are required to pay the shortfall amount of R1 150 (VAT incl) per foal, in order for passports to be issued. These invoices will be forwarded to the respective breeders on 6 May 2019.  


The National Board have in terms of Clause 16.2 of the Constitution, amended the Rules, with effect from 10 May 2019. These amendments were published in the Racing Calendar No. 39 on 26 April 2019.
