Required Documents:

Stud Book (Irish Coursing Club or Greyhound Stud Book)

In the case of the Greyhound Stud Book (British-bred greyhounds), you must complete the change of ownership beforehand. 

In the case of the Irish Coursing Club the GBGB have an agreement to register changes of ownership on the ICC's behalf.

GBGB Change of Registered Ownership Certificate
You can get this from your local GBGB licensed racecourse. The form must be completed in every detail and then signed by each owner in the spaces provided. Owners that have not previously registered greyhounds with the GBGB are required to provide proof of identity and address. Please read the front of the Change of Registered Ownership Certificate for further details. 

Change of Registered Ownership Procedure 
Take the documents above and the relevant fees to the Racing Manager of the GBGB racecourse. The documents and the Race Record Book will be forwarded to the GBGB for the Change of Registered Ownership to be approved. 

Do not send in documents and/or fees directly to GBGB as this will result in a delay to the transfer.
