Any person applying for a license as a trainer or assistant trainer for the first time in Illinois shall submit to the examinations required of prospective trainers and assistant trainers, as provided in Section 502.210, unless previously licensed in one of these capacities in another racing jurisdiction where he or she was administered and passed a trainer's examination.

1) have at least one horse to train that is eligible to race in Illinois;
2) be capable of meeting the financial obligations incurred in the stabling, racing, training and care of the horse in his or her care; and

c) An applicant for an assistant trainer's license shall be employed by a licensed trainer. In order to employ an assistant trainer, a trainer must have at least six horses in his or her stable, but may have no more than one assistant trainer for every 20 horses in training. However, if a trainer has fewer than six horses and wishes to ship one or more to another race track, or if a trainer shows a hardship such as a physical impairment, the Stewards shall allow the trainer to have an assistant trainer.
