State Racing Commissions

Every racing jurisdiction requires a thoroughbred Owner to apply for an Owner’s license. The process involves submitting the Owner License form, paying a fee and in some cases recording a set of finger prints. Most States require the Owner to renew their license every year. There are a few States however that offer a three year license. The National Racing Compact is a centralized authority that facilitates the Owner licensing process and can help an Owner obtain a license in multiple racing jurisdictions.

Listed below are information for each racing jurisdiction including a direct link to the Owner License form for that State. By clicking on this link, the actual form should appear as a PDF file. You can Print this form, fill it out and send the form and payment to the racing commission for approval.
Another option is to click on the National Racing Compact link and follow their process to obtain your Owner license in one or more racing jurisdictions.
