    INTRODUCTION

    This book is published by the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission. It contains an unofficial copy of the text of the Rules of Racing adopted by the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission. WHY “UNOFFICIAL”? The official rules text is the text accepted by the Oklahoma Secretary of State for publication in the Oklahoma Register and the Oklahoma Administrative Code. The official text of permanent Rules of Racing adopted by the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission is found in Title 325 of the Oklahoma Administrative Code. The official text of emergency Rules adopted by the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission is found in the Oklahoma Register. Administrative Rules may be accessed at http://www.oar.state.ok.us. DISCLAIMER The Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission has attempted to ensure that the text of the rules in this book is the same as the text on file with the Secretary of State. Any differences will be decided in favor of the text on file with the Secretary of State. THE NUMBERING SYSTEM A Section number is a number assigned to an individual rule. An example of a Section number is 325:10-1-4. In this example: 325:10-1-4

    “325" means the Section is a racing rule adopted by the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission. The Commission adopts rules that begin “325,” which refers to a title of the Administrative Code. Title 325 will contain all rules promulgated by the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission.

    325:10-1-4

    “10" refers to Chapter 10. 325:10-1-4

    “1" refers to SubChapter 1 of Chapter 10. A SubChapter contains a group of Sections related to the same general subject. The numbers initially assigned to SubChapters are all odd numbers: 1, 3, 5, etc. This is done to save space for future expansion.

    325:10-1-4

    “4" refers to Section 4 of SubChapter 1. A Section is an individual rule.
