Standardbred Bill Signed Into Law

Gov. Steve Beshear signed Senate Bill 110 last week, giving the final nod needed for the legislation aimed at improving standardbred breeding in Kentucky.

The bill, sponsored by Senate Majority Floor Leader Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown, changes the rules for the standardbred development fund by allowing all Kentucky bred trotters to run for its purses where the current law limits that money to the offspring of sires standing in Kentucky.
The bill also would allow the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission to change its rules to register standardbred mares, stallions and progeny — where existing law allows the agency to make rules for registering stallions standing within Kentucky and their progeny.
