|The definition of “Virginia bred Standardbred horse” is being changed to provide that for a horse to qualify as a Virginia bred it must either be sired by a Virginia sire, foaled in Virginia with the foaling mare staying in Virginia from July 15 through December 31 of the same year in which the horse is foaled, or foaled in Virginia with the foaling mare bred back to a Virginia sire in the same breeding season. By changing this definition, there will be more of an incentive for people to breed and foal their horses in Virginia which will in turn benefit the economy and the breeding industry.
