Change a registered name

I am not sure if this is the area for this question, but does anyone know if you can change a registered name for a thoroughbred?

Mine is Prissys Flash and REALLy does not fit a 17.2, 1300 lb boy. Is there a way to change it or is the poor guy stick with it?

I think you can change their name as long as they have never been raced or bred. There's a fee but I'm not sure how much.

All l I could find on the Jocky Club site was:

" A foal's name may be changed at any time prior to starting in its first race. Ordinarily, no name change will be permitted after a horse has started in its first race or has been used for breeding purposes. However, in the event a name must be changed after a horse has started in its first race, both the old and new names should be used until the horse has raced three times following the name change. The prescribed fee (see Fee Schedule) and the Certificate of Foal Registration must accompany any request to the Registry Office for a change of name. "

Thanks. I guess I will have to call them to get a definite answer. I searched the website but never could find anything.

what S_D said is correct. i tried to change my mares registered name. she is an Appendix. her name is Minime. its so stupid. she is 15.3 hand bulky 1300 lb horse. i wanted to change it to Ima Dimmers Double. her sire is Little Bit Dimmer and her dam is Double Event. my mare looks just like her sire (hence the Minime) but the name i wanted i think is much better. but no, once they have raced or have been bred, you cant change it.
sorry. :(

i think that might depend on what registry we're talking about...i know that the saddlebred registry (asha) will change a name... actually one of our founding/leading sires had his name changed a couple of times... anacacho denmark -

I believe you can change the name. If you contact the registry, they will be able to send you in the right direction and give you costs etc. I have also thought about changing my boy's registered name. It's terrible. Registration names aren't really that important in the end. Most people never use them, even for showing.

Keep us posted on the outcome. I would be curious to hear how it works out.
