Fair amendment takes effect

The amendment changing eligibility requirements for county fair racing, to make them consistent with the Kentucky Sire Stakes, takes effect today, February 4, 2011.

The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission (KHRC) stated that the amendment made it through the regulation process quickly because it had no opposition during a public hearing on October 28, 2010 and received no written comments in opposition during the same time period.

The amendment was made by the KHRC at the request of the Kentucky Colt Racing Association and will make the commission's regulation of the county fairs more efficient.

As a result, in order to qualify to participate in a county fair race the horse shall be either a 2 or 3 year old that "is the product of the mating of a mare with a Kentucky Standardbred Development Fund registered stallion."
