2024 Season
No horse will be permitted on the grounds of Assiniboia Downs unless and until:

A. A stall application in the form provided by the Manitoba Jockey Club has been completed by the owner, trainer or duly authorized agent;

B. The stall application has been approved by the Manitoba Jockey Club Stall Committee and the applicant has been notified that stalls have been allocated to him/her. The granting of stalls pursuant to this application in whole or part, shall not constitute a lease of space but is merely a revocable license permit granted by the race track (Assiniboia Downs), only on the terms and conditions set forth in this application and other documents referred to herein and Assiniboia Downs reserves the unrestricted right to decline stall space, to revoke this license or permit at will and to have any stall vacated on 24 hour written notice (given to the trainer) without liability therefore, at the applicants expense. In addition, should the Manitoba Jockey Club indicate that it chooses to terminate or revoke this permit, the applicant must also pay off any outstanding bills. If an applicants horse is not removed and the stall vacated within 24 hours, the Manitoba Jockey Club will have the right to sell the horse to a third party.

The Manitoba Jockey Club, its directors, officers, agents and employees, including all lesses or concessionaires using its premises, shall not, under any circumstances be liable or responsible for any losses, injuries or damages to person, property and/or horse caused or suffered by any horse owners, trainers, their agents, servants or employees, and/or horses while on the grounds of Assiniboia Downs, or on the grounds owned, leased or controlled by Assiniboia Downs or its agents. All risks of loss, injury damage or destruction to person, property and/or horses by fire, theft, accident, or otherwise, as assumed in full by such owners, trainers and their agents, servants and employees, whether caused by active or passive negligence, condition or the premises or other reason or cause whatsoever, and such owner, trainers and their agents, servants and employees to hereby waive, release and discharge the Manitoba Jockey Club, its directors, officers, agents or employees, including all lessees or concessionaires as aforesaid, from all rights, claims and demands whatsoever (including, without limitation, subrogation rights or claims) in respect of any and all such loss, injury damage or destruction. The provision shall not be deemed waived by the fact that the Manitoba Jockey Club does presently, or will in the future, furnish insurance coverage against injury to jockeys competing or training on the race track or any other kind or type of insurance for any purpose whatsoever.

All owners and trainers do hereby unreservedly and without exception agree to indemnify and hold the Manitoba Jockey Club harmless from any loss, costs or damages suffered or incurred by the Manitoba Jockey Club caused by such owners and/or trainers, their employees, agents, property or horses while on the grounds of Assiniboia Downs, or on grounds owned, leased or controlled by the Manitoba Jockey Club and its agents.

All registration papers relative to the horses eligibility, issued by the Jockey Club, must be turned over to the Race Secretary upon arrival. No entry will be accepted unless accompanied by such registration papers. The Manitoba Jockey Club reserves the right to retain possession of all registration papers for any horse claimed at Assiniboia Downs until the conclusion of the current race meet. Compliance with all track rules and regulations as created and distributed through the race office and HBPA office, is mandatory. Failure to comply may lead to the termination of the permit to participate at Assiniboia Downs.
