Harrisburg - The Pennsylvania Harness Racing Commission today reminded standardbred horse owners to register their stallions and broodmares for programs that reward breeders who turn out top racers.

The deadline for owners of eligible stallions to register for the Sire Stakes Fund is Feb. 1, while the broodmare deadline for the Breeders Fund is Feb. 15.

Stallions must remain in Pennsylvania at a declared facility from Feb. 15-July 4 for their offspring to be considered eligible. Stallions used as racehorses must be approved by the commission and returned to their Pennsylvania facility after each out-of-state race.

Broodmares must live in Pennsylvania for at least 180 contiguous days, including foaling, for their offspring to be eligible for the award.

Registration forms are available by contacting Gary Heffner at 717-346-0426 or gheffner@pa.gov.
