Captain Bucko Breaks the World Record!

Captain Bucko won a speed stakes race at Fair Meadows track here at Expo Center in Tulsa and set two new standards. Not only did he break the 350-yard track record, he also broke the 350-yard world record.

Both records were previously held by You R My Sunshine with a 17.51, won in 2005. Captain Bucko ran a 17.50!

Congratulations to RACIN RNS and all Captain Bucko's connections!

FREE CORRECTIONS—National & World Show Inspector Corrections

It is the policy of the ApHC that free corrections to your horse's original Certificate of Registration shall be given for up to six months from the date a National or World Show Inspector stamps it with a needed correction. The stamped Certificate of Registration should be submitted to the ApHC accompanied by required photographs, including both sides, a direct face, and a rear view. If the correction is for something like adding a snip on the lower lip, or a similar marking that may not be visible in the four required photographs, please include close-ups clearly showing the marking. After the six month grace period, a $20 correction fee shall apply.


ApHC members can register fillies and colts for a registration fee of only $30 as long as the application is postmarked between their foal date and 6th month foal date. After their 6th month foal date to their 12th month foal date the fee increases to $50. After their 12th month foal date to their 24th month foal date the fee increases to $100. For example, if your foal was born March 5th, you have until September 5th of the year foaled to have the registration application postmarked and to register the foal for the $30 member fee.

Pedigreed geldings can be registered for only $50 while hardship geldings and spayed mares can be registered for only $100. Appaloosa enthusiasts are encouraged to take advantage of the Aged Horse Special and register Appaloosa stallions and mares over two years of age for only $150!
