NEW CALIFORNIA LAW REGULATING AGENTS
A newly chaptered law will replace Section 19525 of the California Business and Professions Code (click here for full text of law). It regulates, among other things, agents (including “dual agents”) in connection with the purchase, sale or transfer of an interest in an equine. A “dual agent” is defined as a “person acting as an agent for both the purchaser and seller of an equine.” The law makes it unlawful for a person to act as a “dual agent” without the prior knowledge, and written consent, of both the purchaser and seller.
The law also governs the compensation of agents generally. It makes it unlawful for any agent (whether or not a dual agent) to receive in excess of $500 in compensation or in other items of value, related directly or indirectly to the purchase, sale or transfer of an equine, from other than from the agent’s principal, unless: (1) both the agent and the individual/entity giving the money or items of value disclose it to each of the agent’s principals; and (2) each of the agent’s principals consent in writing. Additionally, the law sets forth conditions for the enforceability of a contract for a commission on the sale, purchase, or transfer of an equine.
The law allows any person injured by a violation of its provisions to recover treble damages and also provides that the CHRB may suspend or revoke the license of any person who violates its provisions.
Bone warranties MAY APPLY for sales of two-year-olds in training, yearlings and horses of racing age. Be sure to consult the Conditions of Sale in each catalog to determine specific applicability.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT REMOVAL OF HORSES FROM THE BARRETTS BARN AREA MAY VOID CERTAIN WARRANTIES. IT IS THE BUYER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO NOTIFY THE SHIPPING AGENT REGARDING POST-SALE VETERINARY EXAMS WHICH MUST BE CONDUCTED PRIOR TO REMOVING HORSES FROM THE GROUNDS.
For the March and May Sales of Two-Year-Olds in Training, as well as the California Cup Yearling sale, consignors may voluntarily deposit radiographs and video tapes of laryngoscopic exams in the Repository, which is located in the building at the north end of Barretts' Barn 3.

CARE OF HORSES AFTER SALE
