Starting March 1, 2019, the AGCO will shift the expiry date for all individual Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing licences to the licensee’s or applicant’s birthdate.

Individual licences issued in 2019 will expire on the licensee’s birthday in 2020. The licence fee will be pro-rated based on how many months a licence is extended to reach the licensee/applicant’s birthdate in 2020.

Below are two examples, followed by a chart that shows the pro-rated fee for each licence category.

Example 1:
A Trainer’s birthday falls in September. When they renew their Trainer’s Licence in April 2019, they will be charged a pro-rated fee of $125 – $100 for their regular annual Trainer’s Licence fee plus a one-time additional $25 fee for the extension period, which in this case is 5 months. Their licence will then be valid until September 2020.

Example 2:
A Groom’s birthday falls in October. When they renew their Groom’s Licence in March 2019, they will be charged a pro-rated fee of $30 – $20 for their regular annual Groom’s Licence fee plus a one-time additional $10 fee for the extension period, which in this case is 7 months. Their licence will then be valid until October 2020.

For more information on how this will affect your licence expiry date and 2019 licensing fee, please see the attached pro-rated fee schedule.
