Registrar of Racehorses Introduction of the Thoroughbred Identification Card 1 January 2005 – for 2003 Foal crop
The Australian Stud Book has ceased production of the Document of Description commencing with the 2003 foal crop. These horses, which are microchipped as an additional form of identification, will turn 2YO on 1 August In preparation for the change, the Registrar of Racehorses has commenced production of the Thoroughbred Identification Card, for issue from 1 January The card will be issued at the time of registration for racing purposes, and will replace the Document of Description for all horses born after 1 July For those born before that date, nothing changes and they will continue to carry their Document of Description.

Cards will be sent to the Contact Breeder of a particular foal, once DNA testing has been verified. The card will display the sire, dam, date of birth, sex and microchip number of the foal, as well as the brand image that appears on the Brands Register. For more information regarding the identification process, see Registrar of Racehorses – Thoroughbred Identification Card When the 2003 foal is ready to be registered, the Foal Identification card should be forwarded to Racing NSW with the Application to Register a Racehorse form and a new card will be produced once the horse is named. This card will travel with the horse, as does the current Document of Description for older horses.

The Microchips The microchips used in the Australian program are manufactured by Digital Angel Corp. (formerly Destron Fearing) and are exactly the same as those used by Weatherbys in Great Britain & Ireland and by France GALOP in France. They are similar to the ones used in South Africa. The microchips are especially manufactured for the Australian Stud Book, and have a code specifically for Australian thoroughbreds which will not be repeated in any other thoroughbred racing country. To ensure this security, the Digital Angel microchips are fully compliant with:- 1.The International Standards Organisation (ISO) requirements; 2.The relevant Australian Standards AS and AS as set out by Standards Australia Committee IT 28; 3.The ISBC guidelines. They will be injected right into the nuchal ligament in the neck of the horse, exactly midway between the ear and the withers on the nearside, 2.5 cm to 3.5 cm below the top of the neckline. They have an anti- migratory cap which eliminates any movement.Readers/Scanners To read the chip once inserted, standard scanners used by Vets in everyday practice read the microchip number of the horse from a close distance. This number can be matched with the number displayed on the Thoroughbred Identification Card, or on the Racing NSW or Australian Stud Book website. These scanners, which must be able to read ISO standard microchips, are available for purchase from many veterinary suppliers (quote the standards above), although Owners and Trainers may choose to continue to identify their horses using the traditional method of Brands and white markings (shortened version on the ID cards).Racing NSW Australian Stud Book For more information on the above, and other changes commencing Jan , see or contact Steve Bell at phone (02)
