A Foal Identification Card (FIC) is produced at the time a horse is parentage verified. The Foal Identification Card must be relinquished to the Registrar of Racehorses at the time an application for naming is submitted. In previous years, a passport (or Identification Papers) has been produced for Australian thoroughbreds.
Foal Identification card is produced at the time a horse is parentage verified. Only authorized ASB veterinarians can carry out the extraction of hair required for this test.
Upon positive parentage verification, a Foal Identification Card (FIC) will be sent to the contact associated with the horse. Please note that if a foal dies prior to microchipping and DNA sampling, the microchip must be returned to the ASB as soon as possible. Upon receipt of the microchip, the ASB will issue a refund of the parentage testing fee.
Veterinarians will receive: DNA cards Plastic Bags Reply paid envelopes All imported horses are required to be DNA typed to enable acceptance into the ASB.
The ASB will send breeders an identification kit and advise them of a two-month period in which their foal/s must be microchipped. The veterinarian is required to complete a Microchip, Brand and Sample (MBS) form and return it to the Studbook.
To assist Thoroughbred breeders to comply with the requirements, the ASB’s microchip supplier, which owns one of the registries approved by the Government to record horses, is offering its services at a reduced rate to enter a Thoroughbred into its registry. To further assist, a preprinted Getafe Register form will be included in the DNA kit sent to breeders in Victoria to provide to your veterinarian at the time of microchipping, if you choose to use this registry.
Brands must be clearly visible as permanent white hair markings before horses are microchipped and DNA sampled. The Brand Index Card must be provided to the veterinarian at the time the horse is microchipped and DNA sampled to enable him/her to enter the correct Brand Index Number on the relevant forms.
Step 3 Wait for the ASB to send your foal’s identification kit. Step 4 Arrange for the veterinarian to visit in the month designated by the AustralianStudBook to implant the microchip.
Step 5 Approximately two weeks after the vet has taken the sample, check that the foal has been parentage verified on the Unnamed Produce page of the website, found under the horse name dropdown menu. Step 6 A Foal Identification Card (FIC) will be issued at the time of parentage verification.
Upon receipt of the FIC, check the identity of the horse against the brands, markings description and microchip number. The FIC must remain with the person currently in possession of the horse, and must be relinquished to the Registrar of Racehorses at the time an application for naming is submitted.

John Cob croft was having so much success in the production good winners from the one family on Parraweena, Willow Tree, northwest NSW a quarter of a century ago, they changed the rules of the AustralianStudBook to admit representatives into this registration of the purity of thoroughbreds. The change to the rules of the Studbook are but one of the many recollections following the death of Gavin John Cob croft from cancer at the age of 67 on September 5.
A fine horseman who in his younger days was an international polo player and a rodeo competitor, John Cob croft was a son of Gavin Cob croft, the breeder and owner with his brother at Parraweena of Vista Anna's sire Caravan, a Halogens (GB) horse who won the AJC Derby, Rose hill Guineas and Caulfield Guineas and finished second in the Sydney Cup, Brisbane Cup and Cox Plate, third in another renewal of the Cox Plate and in the1956 Melbourne Cup. Since taking over the breeding and racing arm of the Parraweena Pastoral Company from his father, John Cob croft enjoyed constant success starting off with the offspring of Vista Anna, producer of seven winners headed by the brilliant sprinter Salaam.
A son of Radomes, a French Two Thousand Guineas winner used by Cob croft's uncle Reg Moses at his Fairways Stud, Muswellbrook, Salaam won11 races including the AJC Galaxy, STC Premiere Stakes and Missile Stakes. A minor winner out of Steam Heat, Good Heavens, could be one of the mares whose progeny provide continuing epitaphs for Cob croft in the next few years.
He sold her first foal, a colt by Show a Heart, through Kerry Tibia's Good wood Farm, Murrurundi for $30,000 at this year's Sydney Classic sale. For the purposes of Breeding, historically it has produced a Studbook which operates under rules of stet down and approved by its Editing Committee.
The Society's pedigree rules (updated in October 2020 at paragraph 1 specifically for the non-discrimination statement included therein) are set out below. Following the decision of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union for all practical purposed effective from 1 January 2021, in conjunction with the Scottish Government and its application for Scotland to receive accreditation of third Country Listing following Brexit, the Society has created a new document entitled its Breeding Program.
The following are the Rules and Regulations governing the entries in the Studbook of the Clydesdale Horse Society: These must be read in conjunction with The Clydesdale Horse Society Breeding Program produced in 2020 in conjunction with the Scottish Government for the purposes of Third Country Listing as required as part of the United Kingdom’s final departure from the European Union on 1st January 2021.
The Secretary cannot undertake responsibility for entries handed to his otherwise than through the post office. The name and address of the breeder of every animal whose pedigree is sent for registration must be given on the entry form.
Every breeder and persons registering stallions must register a Stud Prefix which shall be for their own use in their lifetime provided the current Stud Prefix fee has been paid. Stud Prefixes and names already appropriated in the Studbook should not be made use of.
Breeders and owners are requested to be very careful in stating marks. When this is neglected increased fees will be charged and an entry accepted only at the discretion of the Council.
Foal registrations will not be accepted unless both sire and dam have been parentage tested and the Society notified. If the dam or sire is deceased entry acceptance will be at the discretion of the Editing Committee and the Council who reserve the right to accept, reject, investigate, amend, or alter, and to publish in the original, or in an amended or altered form, or not to publish any or every entry presented for entry.
Filly foals must also be parentage tested and the Society notified that the animals are cleared for inclusion before a valid registration number can be allocated and the animal entered as produce in the Studbook. No colt will be accepted for Stallion registration until the age of two years unless it is going for export.
In order to be registered as stallions all colts must be DNA tested and the Society notified. Only horses entered in Section 1 of the Studbook can be described as Registered Clydesdale's.
In order for a stallion to enter Section 1 a veterinary certificate of soundness and suitability for breeding purposes must be submitted to the Society together with the registration form. For the avoidance of doubt, horses in the Appendices, are not eligible for registration in Section 1 or Section 2 of the Studbook as the Appendices sit outside the main register of the Studbook.
All Mares and fillies which have been DNA tested, entered and accepted for entry will be given a Registration Number. Females sold for exportation before allocation of a normal registration number will be numbered on a separate list, provided they are eligible for full registration with the Society.
Colt foals entered and accepted for entry will not be given a registration number until such time as they are registered as Stallions or are sold for exportation when they are numbered on a separate list, provided they are eligible for full registration with the Society. Note: For export to the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand entire colts and females must be DNA tested against stated parentage prior to export.
For export to remaining countries, entire colts do not require to be DNA tested prior to export but will require to be tested prior to registration as stallions. In view of EU regulations and controls, a Grading-Up Register is incorporated as an Appendix to the Studbook.
This Appendix sits outside the main register of the Studbook and with reference to Rules 22 and 27, Grade-Ups in the Appendix are not eligible to compete for any Clydesdale Horse Society trophies or awards. Filly foals out of a Grade-Up mare and by a fully registered Clydesdale Stallion are acceptable for full registration in the main part of the Studbook but only following DNA testing.
Breeders who wish to enter fillies in the Grade-Up register in the Appendix to the Studbook must submit photographs of both sides and front of the non-registered Clydesdale parent and have that animal DNA sampled before the filly can be entered in the Grade-Up Register in the Appendix. The Clydesdale Horse Society will rule on whether a horse is of “Clydesdale type” or not and any dispute in relation to any of the decisions relating to pedigree rules and all cases of doubtful or suspicious pedigrees of Clydesdale Horses and all other cases of alleged misrepresentation relating to them which may be brought under notice to the Society shall be dealt with by the Council in accordance with the procedure in the Studbook section of the Society’s Articles of Association.
This procedure involves various elements including a reference to the Executive Committee who will issue a preliminary report stating whether in their view the matter requires investigation. Full details of such procedure and the arbitration procedure relating to cases of disputes or questions referred to the Society are contained in the Studbook section of the Society’s Articles of Association.
In the case of breeding animals imported to the UK the Society will generally accept the pedigree as stated in the exporting country’s Studbook, with the proviso that the animal must be DNA typed on arrival in the UK in order that its progeny can be tested against this for eligibility for registration in the UK Studbook. A foal got by artificial insemination will be accepted on the same conditions as a natural service foal provided that the British Equine Veterinary Association guidelines are observed.
