Trois-Rivieres, QC — With a special agreement from the Quebec Jockey Club, any broodmares purchased between June 1, 2020 and Dec. 31, 2020, with proof of the transaction, will be eligible in the Quebec breeding program on certain conditions.
No breeder premiums will be awarded to non-Quebec breeders of these mares.
This exceptional measure was created in order to increase and improve the Standardbred breeding industry in Quebec.
The goal is to create and maintain our jobs in the racing industry.
• The transfer of the mare must be done before Dec. 31, 2020 and must be 100 percent Canadian owned
• The mare must come from outside of Quebec to be eligible
• The foaling must take place in Quebec
• The mare and her offspring must remain in the province of Quebec from Jan. 1, 2021 until and including Dec. 31, 2021
• Any reasons to leave the province of Quebec during her residency must be approved beforehand by the QJC, otherwise the mare’s residence and therefore the Quebec status of the offspring could be compromised
• A $250 nomination fee must be paid to Standardbred Canada by Dec. 31, 2020, or the regular late registration fee will apply
• The QJC reserves the right to visit farms for inspection purposes
The Quebec Jockey Club is trying to continue building up its breeding program in the province, and this special condition now allows any foals born and raised in Quebec to not only be eligible to the Sire Stakes program that their stallion is eligible to, but also for the Quebec breeding program and its stakes and breeder awards.
