How to Enter a Race

See individual condition pages for whom to contact for that race meet or point to point.

If you are entering races sanctioned by the National Steeplechase Association (NSA), you will need to call the NSA office:
NSA Office: 410-392-0700 (phone)

If you are entering Point-to-Point races, check the individual meet conditions for how to enter, but for most MD, PA and VA point to point entries, overnights and results contact:
Central Entry Office
11131 Bolton Lane, Bealeton, VA 22712 540-439-3820 (phone) 888-439-5521 (fax)

When entering a race through the Central Entry Office, we encourage you to enter on the website and print a copy of your entry to keep for your records. Entries may be made on the website at least a week prior to the point to point.

If you would contact the Central Entry Office with any new information (new horses, new owners, silks, address changes, new or changed contact information, etc.) prior to entry day, that information can be added to the data base and will speed up the entry process.

The most important information with any entry is a daytime phone number where you can be reached prior to the overnight being printed in case there are questions regarding your entry.

In order for participants to receive tickets we MUST have correct addresses. An “in care of” address may work one week, but not the next. This applies especially to riders.

If the Central Entry Office is taking entries for a single point to point, the overnights should be up on the www.centralentryoffice.com website by 3:00 PM. If entries are being taken for multiple point to points, overnights should be up by 6:00 PM.

Please do not contact the Central Entry Office with general information questions on Mondays when entries are being taken.
