Indiana's rule for lessee/lessor requires that not only the lessee be licensed as an owner but also the lessor.
Listed below are some items to review upon obtaining your Trainer's License in Indiana.
It is the Trainer's responsibility for licensing their owners and employees. Trainers must sign each employee's application authorizing the Indiana Horse Racing Commission to license the applicant as your employee. The trainer must inform the Commission regarding any employee changes.
All owners must be licensed prior to the first post of those evenings' races. Failure to obtain an owner's license in a timely manner could result in the horse(s) being scratched and/or a fine being assessed.
Indiana also requires each trainer to file a Trainer's Stable Roster listing the horses under their care, their owners, and any employees (grooms, hotwalkers, etc.)
