Ohio Admin. Code 3769-16-07 - Title vested

Each horse shall race for the account of the person in whose name it starts, but title to the claimed horse shall be vested in the claimant from the time it becomes a starter as defined in rule 3769-11-28 of the Administrative Code or as provided for in rule 3769-16-19 of the Administrative Code. If more than one person shall enter claims for the same horse, they shall cast lots to determine the right to consummate the claim in the presence of the judges, and the one determined by lot shall become the owner of the horse. In any case, the claimant shall take the claimed horse whether it be alive or dead, sound or unsound, or injured during the race or after it. Claims will be void if the horse dies on the racetrack, or is euthanized at the direction of a regulatory veterinarian.
