WAC 260-52-075 Declaring race "official" in respect to purses.
No purse money may be officially won by the owners of any horse for which a test sample was submitted until the testing laboratory reports that the sample is clear of prohibited substances or there are no overages of permitted medications. Upon notice of a positive sample by the testing laboratory, no purse may be released to the owners of the horse in question pending a final determination of the alleged infraction.
