General Information
Action Summary The amendments to chapters 70 and 90 clarify the authority of the stewards appointed by the Virginia Racing Commission to enforce and interpret the Commission’s regulations. The definition of “participant” has been added which provides that certain individuals associated with a horse that is entered to run in Virginia shall be considered as participants and come under the jurisdiction of the Commission. Additionally, the amendments provide the authority of the Commission to take disciplinary actions through stewards or at a meeting at which a quorum is present and clarify that such disciplinary actions must be determined by a preponderance of the evidence. These amendments are being made in order to conform with the changes that will be made to the Code of Virginia as of July 1, 2005 as provided for in SB 1270 Virginia Racing Commission.
