Workout Requirements Changed for Quarter Horses

One rule change that has been in the works for a long time is a change in workout requirements for quarter horses. The new rule, in its entirety below, reduces the number of required works for quarter horses to be more in line with other quarter horse racing jurisdictions. Previously, a horse off over 60 days was required to work twice prior to entry.


A Quarter Horse which has not started for a period of 61 days or more shall not be eligible to start until it has completed one timed workout within 60 days of and no less than 48 hours prior to the race in which it is entered. Any workout following the entry of a horse shall appear on the official or daily racing program or shall be posted for the public.
