If there is a coupon on the bottom of the Certificate of Service and you wish to have dual Futurity Scheme eligibility, you complete the coupon and sent it off to the relevant Controlling Body.
For example: Foal born in NSW and by sire Art Major (stands in Victoria) – You should notify the foal to Harness Racing NSW and complete the coupon on the bottom of the Certificate of Service and send it to Harness Racing Victoria if you wish to have dual Futurity Scheme eligibility.

The NSW Breeding Schemes are restricted to the progeny of:
a)   A mare inseminated by a stallion registered and standing in NSW during that breeding season, provided the stallion has not also stood in any other State or Territory of Australia or in New Zealand during that breeding season and provided that the foal is either registered in NSW or nominated for the NSW Breeding Schemes.
i)  If a NSW based Stud or a NSW based Genetics Company holds the exclusive Australian rights for the management, storage and distribution of frozen semen for a Northern Hemisphere stallion, all progeny by that horse will be eligible for the NSW Breeders Challenge/Trot NSW so long as:
      • The confirming paperwork is supplied to HRNSW at the start of the season
      • The progeny was conceived in or after the 2018/19 season
      • Studs pay the Registration of Sire fee to HRNSW

Stallions who conform to the above conditions are eligible to apply for the NSW Stallion Incentive Scheme and their progeny out of mares that were:
      • served in NSW, and then;
      • born in NSW and registered in NSW
will be eligible for the True Blue Bonus.
b)   A mare inseminated in NSW during a year’s breeding season with the semen of a stallion registered and standing outside of NSW at the time of insemination, provided that the foal is born in NSW and provided that the foal is either registered in NSW or nominated for the NSW Breeding Schemes.
c)   A mare inseminated outside of Australia, provided that the foal is born and registered in NSW, and provided that the foal is not eligible for any other Australian State Breeding Scheme.

e)   A weanling of a mare inseminated outside of Australia, where both the mare and weanling have been imported to NSW, provided that it is not eligible for any other Australian State Breeding Scheme. Such nominations must be made by 31 August in the season of birth.
For the purposes of the NSW Breeding Schemes Terms and Conditions, the resultant progeny of a mare inseminated and foaled in NSW and being by a stallion registered and based solely in NSW during the season of insemination, will be considered 100% NSW bred.
