A Regulatory Submission must be submitted by a Trainer to declare a transfer of Trainer. AGCO Racing Official approval is required for a transfer of one or more horses from a Trainer of record to another Trainer of record under the Rules of Racing. A Regulatory Submission – Declaration for Transfer of Trainer must be completed by the new Trainer prior to the transfer.

If the licence of a current Trainer of record is suspended or revoked, or the Trainer of record is unlicensed or otherwise ineligible to train horses in Ontario, the horses under his or her care and control are not eligible to be entered or to race in the province of Ontario until the Racing Officials have approved a transfer of the horses to one or more other Trainers of record.

If horses being transferred are owned by different owners, Declarations for Transfer of Trainer must be submitted separately for each ownership group.

No person (1) whose licence is suspended under the Rules of Racing under the Horse Racing Licence Act, 2015 or (2) who is not licensed, may provide goods or services for which a licence is required with respect to race horses.
