  • Date of Transfer is the date the horse was purchased/ acquired or the date a change has taken place in the ownership, not the date the paperwork is lodged.
  • Purchase price of the horse must be included in space availbable
  • Full Christian names and the residential address of each owner must be provided.
  • Dates of birth and percentage of ownership are to be shown.

  • If an error is made by any person when completing the transfer ‘do not’ cross out or use liquid paper to delete any details. Contact the Principal Racing authority on 8944 7500 for advice.
