The Annual Ripoff

9 posts in this topic

Got an email for the annual ripoff  a few days ago. $110 to register your mare & foal with the studbook or $70 per mare.

How in today's world of technology is this still relevant, surely it is time this was made a small token payment whereby the entering of studbook details can be done via the breeders portal on the site(and updated from there)?

Where is the $70 worth of value in entering a mare in the studbook?

If we have an organisation that has a cost structure whereby it's costing $70 to enter a horse in the studbook then we are totally F##k#$!

Just another fee to add to the rest, i remember in the eighties a owner trainer was going to be fined 100$ for not renewing licence on time. He told them he wouldn't bother given the fine and spend his money on lotto keno. They back tracked. Just another example of these charges that add up and leave owners and trainers out of pocket, add to that the 50$ here and there for minor gear changes that are not notified. All adds up. Why not just a warning.

Got fined $50 once for not notifying a change of driver to the stewards even though the club was notified 24 hours before the shut off time.  Told to pay the fine cos "after all its only $50".
