View Full Version : How often can horse's names be reused?

I just did a search on you tube for my horse's name and there is a horse racing under the same name, "Victory Drink". My guy is 18 and was a Canter horse.

Just curious. What are the rules?

Generally, the name needs to be ten years old and not in use (no activity on that horse) for the previous 5 years. There are exceptions and you can find the rule in it's entirety here:


Scroll down to rule 6.

Thank you so much. That makes sense.
