Reminder to horsemen on recently adopted procedures

As live racing resumes, horsemen are reminded of the following: an automatic 10% purse deduction for trainers; the reporting of a horse's medical record after it is claimed or sold; a temporary rule that allows for the one-time waiver of a claiming price under certain conditions; a 150-day layoff report, which was implemented before the shutdown; and a 48-hour cut-off for administration of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as phenylbutazone (Bute) and a 14-day stand-down on intra-articular injections, both of which were in place earlier this year.
