For each breeding season, a broodmare in foal must be registered with Standardbred Canada for its offspring to be identified and recognized as Quebec breeding horses and for the Quebec Jockey Club to grant such status, which constitutes an eligibility prerequisite to various breeding programs offered by the QJC.

- The mares registered in the program must reside in the province of Quebec for at least 180 consecutive days, surrounding the date of foaling. An authorization may be granted for mares who must leave Quebec for reproductive or health reasons. If the absence of a mare during her 180 day residency period is approved by the program administrator, the period of residency will be interrupted while she leaves the province and will resume once she returns. Supporting evidence may be required by the Club Jockey du Québec.
- Registration with Standardbred Canada must be completed through the appropriate form no later than October 31 of the year of mating. The registration fees are $15.00.
- An entry is considered “late registration” if completed between November 1 and December 31 of the year of mating. The late registration fees are $150.00.
- An entry is considered “second late registration” if completed between January 1 and December 31 of the year following the year of mating. The second late registration fees are $500.00.
- To avoid registration deadlocks with breeders, QJC offer a “third late registration,” to be completed no later than December 31 of the yearling year of offspring. The third late registration fees are $1,500.00.
- The sums collected under this registration should not be construed as “added purses” or amounts used to improve in whatever form or fashion the programs of the Quebec Jockey Club; no refunds will be made.
- Any check returned by the bank marked as “insufficient funds” will be considered as a non-performed payment with the inherent consequences.
- As a matter of courtesy, Standardbred Canada and the Quebec Jockey Club will do everything in their power to inform their customers. Regardless of notice, it remains the responsibility of the breeder to ensure that payments are deposited in Standardbred Canada by the date and time provided for this purpose.
- During file processing, the preferred information source is Standardbred Canada, whether for the spelling of the name, identification and address of the owner, etc. Decisions are made based on the information contained in the register of Standardbred Canada, which users must keep updated. Therefore, the Quebec Jockey Club consider the information contained in the Standardbred Canada register to be true and official.
