Change of Ownership Guidelines

Guidelines have been issued by Weatherbys Ireland in relation to the transfer of ownership of racehorses.

Passport to be given to buyer / new owner at time of sale and records of transfer to be maintained by both parties

Buyers must send passport and completed forms with appropriate fee to Weatherbys within 30 days of acquiring ownership

Failure to register the transfer of ownership within the required time limit is now a serious offence.

Authorised Officers will carry out inspections and have power to inspect records and documents.
