10 May 2016, USA ~ With the recent launch of the Heritage Arabian Racing Club’s (HARC) new website, www.harchorses.com – which will provide eligibility forms, 2016 race schedule and beneficial member incentives – nominations are now being accepted for HARC horses in the USA. See below for information on the nomination procedure.
Each member country is responsible for collecting nomination forms and fees. Therefore, all USA nominations and accompanying fees will be directed to the HARC USA country representative, Evie Tubbs Sweeney, who will be working with the official HARC credentialing committee to verify eligibility of each horse put forward for HARC nomination. All items pertaining to the HARC nomination process for USA horses can be found at www.ArabianRacing.org/HARC.
It is important to reiterate that fees associated with nominating a horse for the HARC program is a one-time fee for the duration of the horse’s life. This nomination will follow the horse throughout its racing and/or breeding careers, even through ownership changes. Here are the one-time HARC nomination fees:
– Racehorse: $40
– Stallion at Stud: $150
HARC Logo Usage
Once a horse has completed the nomination process and is verified as HARC-eligible, the owners of that horse have the right to promote that horse’s HARC status in promotional venues (website, eblasts, print advertising, social media, etc.).
Only horses stamped with the official HARC logo are verified as HARC-eligible, and have the right to use the HARC logo in promotion.
2016 USA HARC Race Schedule
Please find the 2016 monthly schedule of HARC races that will be offered with the $4,000 added-money, to be divided to the owners and breeders of the top three HARC-eligible finishers.

Specific dates for the HARC races will be released as each race nears, allowing racing secretaries to write conditions that will meet the needs of available horses, noting that preference should be given to maiden races and races for non winners. This monthly calendar will not only assist in planning purposes, but also allows HARC-eligible horses to run in more than one HARC race, if desired.
