Just as important as a stakes payment for breeders who own Pennsylvania-resident mares: owners of these mares in foal to Pennsylvania-registered stallions who hope to see their 2013 foals eligible to generate Pennsylvania Breeders Awards must have their registration paperwork on this year's foalings to the Pennsylvania Harness Commission with a postmark or reception by THIS Friday, February 15. The form is available at http://www.agriculture.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/gateway/PTARGS_0_2_24476_10297_0_43/AgWebsite/Files/Forms/BroodmareRegistrationForm.pdf, (or [if you can set up a hyperlink to the attachment above] by clicking here). Owners of the mares, not the farm agents, must sign these forms. Any questions should be directed to the Commission offices at 717 787 5539 or 717 214 9053; our fax is 717 787 2291.
In other news, Pennsylvania does NOT have stakes payments due on February 15; the next PA payment for 2YOs and 3YOs is March 15. Sustaining forms are available at: http://www.agriculture.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/gateway/PTARGS_0_2_24476_10297_0_43/AgWebsite/Files/Forms/PASireStakesSustainingPaymentForm.pdf.
