CHRB Issues Advisory


Scott Chaney, the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB)'s executive director, issued the following advisory on Sept. 21:

“On April 21, 2021, the amended language to Rule 1588 (Horse Ineligible to Start in a Race) became effective. More specifically, that rule requires that in order to run, a horse must be on the grounds of a CHRB inclosure and in the care of a licensed trainer for seven days prior to the race.

Horses cannot leave the grounds during this seven day period except to travel on a van between CHRB inclosures.

In other words, within 7 days of a race, horses are not permitted to go to a farm, clinic, or any place other than CHRB inclosures. Violation of this rule can result in a scratch and sanction for the responsible licensees.”
