North American owners and breeders register approximately 25,000 Thoroughbreds annually with The
Jockey Club. A majority do so through the convenience of the Internet utilizing The
Jockey Club's Interactive RegistrationTM (IR). This is the quickest and easiest way to complete and submit
the requirements for registration and naming of foals, including submission of digital photographs.
One of the most unique and popular features of IR is the ONLINE NAMES BOOK,
which lets users browse The Jockey Club's database of approximately 450,000 names in active use. The
Online Names Book is accurate up to the minute it is accessed, meaning that owners and breeders who
consult the Online Names Book have a greater chance of securing a desired name for their Thoroughbred
than those who just submit names that may or may not be available.
