Any violator of this section shall be punished as the stewards may deem proper, including reference to the commission.

(b) Results of disqualification.
(1) Persons denied admission to tracks. Anyone who has been ruled off or who has been suspended, whether temporarily for investigation or otherwise, and anyone penalized as in this section provided, by the commission, the stewards or by the highest official regulatory racing body having jurisdiction where the offense occurred, shall be denied admission to all facilities licensed or operated by the commission until duly reinstated, unless otherwise determined by the commission.
(2) Persons barred from racing. A person whose license has been revoked or has been suspended, whether temporarily for investigation or otherwise, and so long as his exclusion or suspension continues shall not be qualified, whether acting as agent or otherwise, to subscribe for or to enter or to run any horse for any race either in his own name or in that of any other person.
(3) Horses suspended. All horses in the charge of a trainer whose license has been revoked or has been suspended, whether temporarily for investigation or otherwise, shall be automatically suspended from racing during the period of the trainer's exclusion or suspension. Permission may be given by the stewards for the transfer of such horses to another trainer during such period, and upon such approval such horses shall again be eligible to race.
(c) Horses entered under different name.
(1) No horse shall be allowed to enter or start if the highest official regulatory racing body having jurisdiction of the offense previously has determined that the horse was knowingly entered or raced under a name other than its own by a person having lawful custody or control of the animal at the time it was so entered or raced.
(2) No horse shall be allowed to enter or start if it has been previously determined by the highest official regulatory racing body having jurisdiction of the offense that a person having lawful custody or control of the animal participated in or assisted in the entry of racing of some other horse under the name of the horse in question.
(3) For the purposes of rule (c) (1) and (2) of this section, the "name" of a horse means the name reflected in the registration certificate or racing permit issued with respect to the horse in question by the jockey club.
