A Regulatory Submission – Notification of Equine Fatality must be submitted by a Trainer, Assistant Trainer, Owner, Stable Licence, Partnership Registration, Estate/Trust Licence or Veterinarian to notify the AGCO of a race horse fatality.

Race horses in Ontario that die within 60 days of entering a race, a workout or a qualifying event must be reported to the AGCO. Horse(s) may be sent for a post mortem examination.

The AGCO wishes to convey condolences on the loss of any horse. A member of the AGCO Veterinary Services team will contact you for more information to advise whether the horse is required to go for a post-mortem examination.

You will also be required to answer a number of questions and provide information relating to the Trainer and fatality (i.e. date, time, location).

To submit your Regulatory Submission on the iAGCO online portal, follow these steps:

  1. From the Main Menu, click the Submit Regulatory Submissions and Notifications link.
