SECTION 6. 71 IAC 6.5-1-1 IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS:

71 IAC 6.5-1-1 General provisions

Authority: IC 4-31-6-9
Affected: IC 4-31

Sec. 1. (a) A person entering a horse in a claiming race warrants that the title to the horse is free and clear of any existing claim or lien, either as security interest mortgage, bill of sale, or lien of any kind, unless before entering the horse, the written consent of the holder of the claim or lien has been filed with the stewards and the racing secretary and its entry approved by the stewards. A transfer of ownership arising from a recognized claiming race will terminate any existing prior lease for the horse.

(b) Every horse claimed shall race for the account of the owner at the time of entry, but title to a claimed horse shall be vested in the successful claimant at the time the horse leaves the starting gate and is declared an official starter. If a horse suffers a fatality during the running of a race, or is euthanized on the racetrack following the race, any claim submitted on that horse will be declared void. If a claimed horse is vanned off the racetrack following the race (at the discretion of a commission approved veterinarian), that horse will be taken to the test barn. The successful claimant or trainer may request the claim be voided by the stewards within one (1) hour of the official off time of the race, except that the claim shall not be declared void if the horse is vanned off the track due to an issue that is nonrelated to lameness as determined by the commission approved veterinarian. In the event the claim is voided by the stewards, the horse will be returned to the custody of the original owner. However, the successful claimant may request on the claim blank at the time the successful claimant makes the claim that the horse be tested for the presence of equine infectious anemia via a Coggins test or other test as approved by the official veterinarian. Should this test prove positive, it shall be cause for voiding the claim. The expense of the test and the maintenance of the horse during the period requested for the test shall be the responsibility of the successful claimant, unless the test proves positive, wherein the owner or owners of the horse at the time of entry shall be responsible.

(c) An in-foal filly or mare shall be eligible to be entered into a claiming race only if all of the following conditions are fulfilled:
(1) Full disclosure of such fact is on file with the racing secretary and such information is posted in the racing secretary's office.
(2) The stallion service certificate has been deposited with the racing secretary's office.
(3) All payments due for the service in question and for any live progeny resulting from that service are paid in full.
(4) The release of the stallion service certificate to the successful claimant at the time of claim is guaranteed.

(d) The stewards may set aside and order rescission of a claim for any horse from a claiming race run in this jurisdiction upon a showing that any party to the claim committed a prohibited action, as specified in section 4 of this rule, or that the owner of the horse at the time of entry in the claiming race failed to comply with any requirement of this article. Should the stewards order a rescission of a claim, they may make a further order for the costs of maintenance and care of the horse as they may deem appropriate.

Authority: IC 4-31-3-9
Affected: IC 4-31

Sec. 2. (a) A scratch is the act of withdrawing an entered horse from a contest after the closing of entries.

(b) The scratch of a horse after closing shall be made by the owner, trainer, or their licensed designee with permission from the stewards.

(c) A horse may be scratched from a stakes race for any reason at any time up until forty-five (45) minutes prior to that race.

(d) No horse may be scratched from an overnight race without approval of the stewards.

(e) In overnight races, horses that are physically disabled or sick shall be permitted to be scratched first. Should horses representing more than eight (8) betting interests in the daily double or exotic wagering races, or horses representing more than eight (8) betting interests in any other overnight race, remain in after horses with physical excuses have been scratched, then owners or trainers may be permitted at scratch time to scratch horses without physical excuses down to such respective minimum numbers for such races. This privilege shall be determined by lot if an excessive number of owners or trainers wish to scratch their horses.

(f) Entry of any horse which has been scratched or excused from starting by the stewards because of a physical disability or sickness shall not be accepted until the expiration of a minimum of five (5) calendar days after such horse was scratched or excused and the horse has been removed from the veterinarian's list by the official veterinarian.

(g) The stewards will review all cases in which a horse is drawn into the body of a race at a licensed facility under the jurisdiction of the commission, while appearing in the entries in another racing jurisdiction during the entry period in Indiana. For the purpose of this rule, the entry period begins on the day the horse is entered in Indiana and ends at 11:59 p.m. on the day the horse is entered to race in Indiana. It shall be a violation of these rules for a licensee to scratch a horse in Indiana and race that horse in another jurisdiction during the entry period.
