RCI Modifies Model Rules


The Association of Racing Commissioners International has approved amendments to its Model Rules of Racing. Among the amendments are further restrictions on the use of clenbuterol in Thoroughbred contests and additional guidance for regulatory policy affecting ADW wagering on historic racing. The ARCI also amended its Totalizator Standards at the request of AMTOTE to provide some redundancy in the stop betting function utilized by racing officials to close betting upon the start of a race.

The full updated version of the Model Rules document containing these revisions, as well as a new rule pertaining to use of the riding crop in flat races, will be published by Dec. 20.
