Indiana Lessee/Lessor Requirements
Indiana's rule for lessee/lessor requires that not only the lessee be licensed as an owner but also the lessor.
Listed below are some items to review upon obtaining your Trainer's License in Indiana.
It is the Trainer's responsibility for licensing their owners and employees. Trainers must sign each employee's application authorizing the Indiana Horse Racing Commission to license the applicant as your employee. The trainer must inform the Commission regarding any employee changes.
All owners must be licensed prior to the first post of those evenings' races. Failure to obtain an owner's license in a timely manner could result in the horse(s) being scratched and/or a fine being assessed.
Indiana also requires each trainer to file a Trainer's Stable Roster listing the horses under their care, their owners, and any employees (grooms, hotwalkers, etc.)

On September 9, the Indiana Standardbred Breed Development Program and the Indiana Horse Racing Commission (IHRC) is hosting a FREE broodmare health seminar for all Standardbred breeders and owners at Hoosier Park Racing and Casino in Anderson, Indiana.
The Commission invites anyone interested in learning how to improve the health and wellness of the mares in their breeding operation, whether they have one or 20, to attend. The seminar will be held at 1 p.m.
Afterwards, all attendees are invited to a night of harness racing, with first post at 6:30 EDT. Hoosier Park will be giving all attendees a five dollar voucher that can be used for betting or in the casino, as well as access to private suites and start car rides.
“We know breeding top quality foals is everyone’s goal, and we can only do that if the mares are healthy,” says Jessica Barnes, the IHRC’s Director of Breed Development and Racing. “We want to offer our breeders some free education to improve their conception and foaling rates, thus helping grow our Standardbred program.”
Topics to be covered in the seminar include:
- Preparing Maiden and Older/Open Mares for Breeding
- Factors Impacting Conception
- Broodmare Nutrition
- Overall Broodmare Health
The presenters bring with them years of experience in the veterinary and nutrition fields. The IHRC welcomes Dr. Colleen Brady (Purdue University), Dr. Kevin Kirtley (K.C. Kirtley Vet Inc.) and Anthony Koch (Hallway Feeds).
Anyone interested in attending the seminar should RSVP by September 1 by emailing Standardbred@hrc.in.gov
