TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP FOR ROYAL ASCOT ENTRIES
The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) and Weatherbys will work with the new owners of any horse purchased at the Goffs London Sale with a Royal Ascot engagement to process the change of ownership in time for the horse to race in its new owner's colours.
In preparation, anybody wishing to purchase a horse with an entry for Royal Ascot must already be registered as an owner with the BHA in order for the horse to run in their name. If the owner is registered with another recognised Racing Authority this must be verified in advance of the sale by contacting Weatherbys Ownership Desk on +44 1933 440077.
