Notification of Death or Retirement of Thoroughbred
All owners or trainers must submit an 'SR24 Notification of Death or Retirement of a Thoroughbred' return for every horse so NZTR can maintain full traceability on all thoroughbreds for the period between foaling and either death or retirement from racing and/or breeding, whichever is earliest. This known as ‘comprehensive traceability’.
Request for Identification of Thoroughbred
Identifying your Thoroughbred
NZTR is able to identify your Thoroughbred from its brands and, for horses born since 2004, by its microchip.
Use the 'SR22-Request for identification of a Thoroughbred form' to request a search. Please provide as much information as you can - the more information provided, the greater the chance of finding your horse. There is no charge for this service.
