Conn. Agencies Regs. § 12-574-A54 - Penalties and allowances

Current through March 4, 2022

(a) Readjustments, when claimed. Allowances must be claimed at the time of entry and these allowances shall not be abandoned except by the consent of the stewards, who may, before scratch time, make readjustments to the proper weights and allowances in conformity with the conditions of the race. Sex allowances shall not be waived. The stewards may, in their discretion, impose sanctions upon persons who negligently claim improper allowances.
(b) Extra weight; running second. No horse shall carry extra weight nor be barred from any race for having run second or in any lower place in a race.
(c) Exemption from penalties. When winners of claiming races are exempted from penalties, the exemption does not apply to races in which any of the horses running are not to be claimed.
(d) Penalties, allowances, not cumulative. Penalties and allowances are not cumulative unless so declared by the conditions of the race.
(e) No allowance for beaten horse. No horse shall receive allowance of weight or be relieved from extra weight for having been beaten in one or more races; provided that this section shall not prohibit maiden allowances or allowances to horses that have not won within a specified time or that have not won races of a specified value.
(f) Handicaps. The handicapper shall append to the weights for every handicap, the day and hour from which winners will be liable to a penalty, and no alteration shall be made after publication except in case of omission through error of the name or weight of a horse duly entered, in which case, by permission of the stewards the omission may be rectified by the handicapper.
