Conn. Agencies Regs. § 12-574-A42 - Stable names

Current through March 4, 2022

(a) Registration of stable name. An individual may adopt a stable name under which to race horses by registering it with the jockey club of New York and by registering it annually with the commission and paying an annual registration fee as provided by the act. Such a registration shall be effective only during the calendar year for which it is made, and all such names shall be subject to the approval or disapproval of the commission.
(b) Stable name, restriction on individual. An individual cannot have registered more than one (1) stable name at the same time and, so long as such individual has a stable name registered, he shall not use or permit the use of his real name to identify his ownership interest in the racing qualities of any horse.
(c) Stable name, restriction on partnership. A partnership which, by ownership or lease, controls the racing qualities of a horse shall race such horse under the name, real or stable, of a member of the partnership whose proportionate interest in the horse meets the requirements. All horses, the racing qualities of which are controlled by a given partnership, shall be raced under the same name.
(d) Changing stable name. A stable name may be changed at any time by registering a new stable name pursuant to this section.
(e) Limitations on use of stable names. An individual cannot register as a stable name one which has been already registered or one which is the name of a race horse or one which is the real name of an owner of race horses.
(f) Abandoning stable name. Any individual who has registered a stable name may at any time abandon it by giving written notice at the office of the commission; after which all entries which have been made in such stable name shall be altered as may lie approved by the commission.
(g) Trainer not eligible for stable name. No licensed trainer of race horses shall register a stable name; but a partnership of which such a trainer is a member may use the stable name of another member, provided that the use of such other member's stable name is authorized by this section.
(h) Incorrect descriptions in entry. Provided the identity of the horse is satisfactorily established, incorrect or imperfect description in the entry of a horse or failure to register a partnership may be corrected at any time before the horse is announced as a starter and his number exhibited for the race concerned, or in a handicap before the weights are announced; but this rule shall not be construed so as to allow any horse to start in any race for which he is not otherwise completely qualified under this section.
