All guest tracks shall signal the cessation of wagering by sounding an off bell.
(3) Only offer pools which are the same as those offered by the host licensee, but the guest licensee is not required to offer all pools offered by the host licensee. Guest licensees may elect to exclude pools offered by the host licensee upon contractual agreement between the guest licensee and the host licensee. The host track shall also determine the minimum ticket price that is available for each pool.
(4) Cycle of frequency of the change of odds displayed on the display devices at intervals of not more than 60 seconds. An explanation shall be provided in the racing program indicating that odds and other wagering information may be delayed due to the accumulation and transfer of intertrack wagering data.
(5) In order to facilitate the transfer of money between host tracks and guest tracks, perform a daily reconciliation of its racing accounts and all amounts due to or from the host track. The frequency of the transfer of monies between host tracks and guest tracks shall be as specified by contract, but shall occur at least weekly.
(6) Ensure that tickets sold at guest tracks conform to the requirements of s. Game 10.06(7), and be identified as intertrack wagers.
(7) Not earlier than one hour and not later than 15 minutes prior to the commencement of transmission of a race, perform a test program of its transmitter, encryption, decoding, or other systems or devices approved by the division, data communication to assure proper operation of the broadcast system. Any irregularity shall be reported immediately to the division auditor, pursuant to ss. Game 8.17 and 10.03.
(8) Provide sufficient television monitors in each totalizator room at the guest track to provide key totalizator employees a view of all animals starting in each race at any host track.

(10) Maintain a direct private line telephone with the host track located in the totalizator room. Such direct private line telephone communication will be used to receive information during instances when facsimile transmission is not possible, or when facsimile transmission is not timely due to urgency of communication. Any direct private line telephone communication shall be confirmed in writing by the mutuel manager or designee within 24 hours of the end of the program. A copy shall be provided to the division auditor.
(11) Display the same post time as the host track for all intertrack races.
