Horse Racing Entries United States Index
Horse Racing Entries are the list of horses entered into a race and are the official submissions by trainers which take place 72 to 48 hours prior to the race day and usually beginning at 7 a.m. Stakes races and Handicap races usually take place much sooner.
Before any entry can be made, the specific horse must be registered with the Clerk of the Course in the Racing Office and the foal registration papers from The Jockey Club must be on file in the Racing Office.
Each entry must be accompanied by a form filled out by the trainer. The form includes the name of the owner, Partnership, Farm or Stable. Also, the silks the horse will be running under, the name of the trainer, and which jockey is set to ride the mount. Also included is the horse’s name, age, sex, color, and parentage. The trainer must also specify if a horse runs with Lasix, if it has been gelded since its last race, and if it will be running with blinkers on or off.
Once all horse racing entries have been checked and processed, the Racing Secretary determines which races — and the purses (prize money) will be used to make up a day’s program or card. The Racing Secretary then determines the order the races will be run taking into account television requirements and wagering requirements. Races with short fields including Stakes races are often run-in races that are not part of the Pick 5 or Pick 6. Historically the feature race of the day is run late in the card such as the 8th race in NY or California or the 9th race in Arkansas or Florida where the cards often have 10 or more races.
The final announcement usually occurs around 9:00 a.m. on a race-day. Since the race card and the programs have been printed all changes that occur at the time are called late changes and include corrections to the horses that may not have been announced previously such as Lasix (also known as furosemide and described as an anti-bleeding medication used by veterinarians in horse racing to prevent respiratory bleeding), newly gelded, addition/subtraction of blinkers, and lastly and most importantly late scratches. Late scratches are horse that will not run either because of a trainer decision, the veterinarian, or there were too many horses entered into a race. When more horses are entered than will be able to run these horses are called also eligible and will only get into the race if other horses drop out.
