The following is a brief synopsis of the Kansas Bred Program:
There are two programs within the Kansas Bred Program
1. The Racing Program
2. The Breeding Program
The racing program pays Purse Supplements to Registered Kansas Bred horses when they run in races in the state of Kansas. These horses would also be eligible for KS Bred Stakes Races and KS Bred Stakes Added money from KS Bred Program. See the KS Bred Rules & Regulations for details.
To be eligible for registration as a Kansas Bred the horse must have been foaled in the state of Kansas. Any horse that was foaled in Kansas may be Registered as a Kansas Bred regardless of age. However, it is cheaper to register as a weanling, than as a two year old and older.
Foaling Year by December 31st $ 50.00
Yearling Year by December 31st $ 250.00
After December 31 of Yearling Year $ 500.00
The breeding program pays Stallion and Mare Awards to eligible horses whose offspring have raced and earned "race points" in the state of Kansas. For a Stallion or Mare to be eligible to earn money in the breeding program they must be Registered and Certified in the Breeding Program. If a Stallion or Mare is a "Registered Kansas Bred" and their papers stamped, they can then become "CERTIFIED" into the Breeding Program.
If a Stallion or Mare was foaled in Kansas but never was Registered as a Kansas Bred, or if a Stallion or Mare was foaled in a State other than Kansas you can apply for Registration as a "KANSAS DOMICILED" Stallion or Mare. The Stallion or Mare must also be "CERTIFIED" into the Breeding Program.
A Stallion must be "Certified" with the KS Bred Breeding Program prior to servicing mares, and will stand for service within the state of Kansas and will not stand for service anywhere outside the state of Kansas during the calendar year in which the stallionís offspring are conceived.
A Mare must be "Certified" with the KS Bred Breeding Program prior to foaling for the mare to earn breed awards from that foal. The foal must also be in the Kansas Bred Program to earn the breed awards for the mare. See the KS Bred Rules & Regulations for details.
VERY IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER
It is important to remember that your Breeding Animal must be Kansas Bred Registered or Kansas Domiciled Registered and their papers stamped as such, plus be Certified. Just because your Horse has itís papers stamped as Kansas Bred Registered or Kansas Domiciled Registered does not automatically put it in the Breeding Program. The Horse must also be Certified with the Kansas Bred Registry.
The Kansas Bred Registration and the Kansas Domiciled Registration are a one time fee and the "Kansas Stamp" is permanently affixed to the Horseís Registration papers. The Stallion and Mare Certifications into the Breeding Programs are for ownership of the Breeding animal.
The Stallion Certifications and the Mare Certifications become Null and void upon sale or transfer of ownership of the breeding animal. The new owner must then re-certify them with the KS Bred Registry.
Breed Registration & Certification Fees:
Kansas Domiciled Registration $ 50.00
Stallion Certification $ 100.00
Mare Certification $ 35.00
