The United States Trotting Association has submitted the following proposal to modify the ARCI Model Rules in order to be consistent with the USTA adopted rules. The petition does not indicate which model rules are to be amended in Chapters 22, 23, and 24 – the sections pertaining to Standardbred racing.
As such, the committee may choose to defer action on this item until the actual sections of the rules to be amended or augmented as indicated.
Options for the Committee:
- Set aside pending identification of the actual sections of the Model Rules to be amended;
- Remand to the Standardbred committee to identify sections to be amended;
- Return the application as incomplete as the application clearly requires that sections of the rules to be amended be identified;
- Forward a recommendation to the RCI Membership and/or Board absent identification of the actual sections to be amended or augmented.
