Thoroughbred Racing Commission
The Thoroughbred Racing Commission proposes to enact a new Rule, Rule 11.14.6, to provide for a recommended $1,000 fine for owners or trainers who scratch their horses in Delaware in order to race in another jurisdiction. The Commission also proposes to amend Rule 19.3.2 to raise the appeal bond from $250 to $400 to cover increased costs associated with court reporter fees. The Commission will hold a public hearing on these proposed changes on January 11, 2005 at 10:15 a.m. at the Delaware Department of Agriculture, 2320 S. DuPont Highway, Dover, DE 19901. The Commission will accept written comments on the proposed rules until January 10, 2005. Written comments should be sent to John Wayne, Administrator of Racing.
