If you are consigning yearlings to the sale and have not received your registration papers from AQHA, please send your TQHA Texas-bred accreditation paperwork and sale consignment forms to TQHA without your official AQHA documentation. 

At the March 19 meeting of the Texas Racing Commission, the Texas Quarter Horse Association proposed a rule change to Accredited Texas-bred rules regarding requirements for Accredited Texas Broodmares. The proposed rule change deletes the requirement that in order to be accredited as a Texas broodmare the mare must be permanently domiciled in Texas. 

This rule proposal was passed by the commission and will now be posted in the Texas Register. The next meeting of the Texas Racing Commission is scheduled for June 11. If there is no objection, this rule change will most probably be adopted at that meeting. 

If adopted, this rule change will allow mares to be domiciled anywhere and still produce Accredited Texas-bred foals as long as the foal is born in Texas and the mare was bred to an Accredited Texas Stallion at least every other breeding. The mares must still be accredited with the TQHA. 

The TQHA Race Committee, with the approval of the Executive Committee, made the decision to start accepting foals of 2018 to be Texas Accredited using these new guidelines. 

If you have a 2018 foal that was born in Texas and meets all other ATB Rules, that foal is now eligible to be an Accredited Texas-bred. 

Even though this rule change cannot be officially adopted until after the deadline to consign to the 2019 TQHA Yearling Sale (May 1), TQHA will allow consignors to consign yearlings that meet the new guidelines. In the event the rule is not adopted, TQHA will refund all consignment fees for horses deemed ineligible.
