The Jockey Club Reduces Price of Microchips

The Jockey Club has reduced the price of microchips for sale to interested owners and breeders by 50%, from $20 to $10 per chip. 
Introduced in March 2008, microchips are not currently a requirement for Thoroughbred registration with The Jockey Club and participation is voluntary. The chips are for use in Thoroughbreds residing within the United States and in all U.S. territories.
"The Jockey Club is now able to acquire microchips at a significantly reduced price and we want to pass the cost savings along to those owners and breeders who realize the value of microchipping their Thoroughbreds as a secondary means of identification," said Andrew Chesser, The Jockey Club's customer service coordinator, in a release. "We encourage those who haven't microchipped their Thoroughbreds to consider doing so at this new lower price."
Microchips can be ordered by logging on to The Jockey Club’s Interactive Registration website.
The Jockey Club offers LifeChip® microchips, which are ISO 11784-compliant and consistent with those used by international Thoroughbred stud book authorities.
