New Claiming Rule – 2021 Season

Horsemen, please note there is a new claiming rule in effect for the 2021 season. If a horse in a claiming race is scratched by the stewards for any reason, including being declared a non-starter, any claims on that horse are void. However, that horse in its next start, regardless of the condition of the race entered, may be claimed for the same price as the race from which it was scratched. (Rule 4140)
