The Jockey Club DOES require DNA testing and parentage verification for every foal they register-- before DNA was widely used they did ID and parentage verification via bloodtyping.

Here is some editorial comment discussing why the Jockey Club doesn't allow artificial breeding-- according to these thoughts, its more about economics and concerns regarding "popular sire syndrome".

""Vials of frozen sperm are easier to transport and dilute and can impregnate more mares than live cover, so AI could produce a glut of thoroughbreds born from popular studs and mares. Some breeders believe this could result in the overproliferation of offspring from particularly desirable studs, and limit genetic diversity. If too much of a thoroughbred's sperm were available, it would be less rare, and perhaps less valuable.""

Wow! Is it the only breed which require those? I guess they are afraid to let any other breed to race against TBs!

Nope, the Arabian Horse Association also requires DNA typing of any animal that's going to be used for breeding.

I believe any horse registered now with the AHA has to be DNA typed even if it's a gelding, in order to prove parentage.

Before DNA, the AHA used blood typing for breeding animals. The AHA does allow AI, and has since it became a viable way of breeding.

A lot of registries require DNA on breeding animals, and some go the step further (which makes more sense) and require the foals be matched to the parents.

There's another train of thought that JC TBs must be LC because of all the money it brings into the industry: hauling horses to the big farms, mare care, ect. Those in power profit from it and don't want to loose that money... Again, just another train of thought, one that, IMO, does make sense...

I actually do understand the DNA on breeding animals, but what about geldings? That doesn't make too much sense to me. Anyway, it's not a question, more like a ranting.

Maybe for showing purposes? So everything is fair?
I don't know..

With AQHA any foal that is the result of shipped semen must be DNA'd and parentage verified. Also any animal that is going to be used for breeding purpose weather they are result of live cover or shipped semen.

With Appaloosas, ApHC requires all breeding animals to have DNA type on file. All Appaloosa foals who are the result of transported semen or embryo transfer must have DNA submitted and be parentage verified to be eligible to register. All Appaloosa foals (solid or colored) that are the result of natural cover can be registered without parentage verification, but if a Performance Permit is desired for non-characteristic solids (no Appaloosa color or characteristics) to be showable at ApHc shows, they must be DNA parentage verified to get the Permit.
