AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending Rules of racing, filed 4/21/61)
WAC 260-40-160 Horse owned or managed by disqualified person. (1) A horse shall not be qualified to be entered or to start in any race, if owned in whole or in part, or if under the management, directly or indirectly, of a disqualified person.
(2) If any entry from any disqualified person or a disqualified horse is received, such entry shall be void and any money paid for such entry shall be returned if the disqualification is disclosed forty-five minutes before post time for the race. Otherwise, any such money shall be paid to the winner.
No entry shall be accepted from husband or wife,
while either is disqualified.)) A horse is ineligible to start
in a race when it is wholly or partially owned by the spouse
of a disqualified person or a horse is under the direct or
indirect management of the spouse of a disqualified person, in
such cases, it being presumed that the disqualified person and
spouse constitute a single financial entity with respect to
the horse, which presumption may be rebutted.
