Mass., June 20.— The Massachusetts State Racing: Commission announced today that rule 194-C of the rules of horse racing as adopted by the commission has been amended in accordance with the following vote: "Voted: To amend the rules of horse racing by striking out of the present rules as adopted rule 194-C and inserting in place thereof the following new rule to be known as rule 194-C. "194-C — Any horse so claimed shall not be sold or transferred wholly or in part thereof, to any one for ninety 90 days thereafter, except in the same barn or under the control or management of its former owner for a like period, unless reclaimed. "Provided, however, that in the period of thirty 30 to ninety 90 days after the date of claiming, upon petition of the owner of record or his authorized agent, the commission may permit or ratify the sale or transfer, in whole or in part, of a horse claimed at a Massachusetts meeting. This action of the commission shall be for reasons and under conditions and terms which shall appear sufficient to the commission. Provided, further, that when a horse is claimed at a recognized meeting under rules which are at variance with this rule, title to such horse shall be recognized in Massachusetts to follow the rule of the meeting under which it was claimed. "This rule becomes effective on Wednesday, June 20, 1945."
