NSHA Rule Change BELMONT PARK, Elmont. L. I., N. Y.. May 15. — At a meeting of the stewards of the National Steeplechase and Hunt Association held at Belmont Park yesterday, rule 160 B was amended so as to restrict overweight carried by amateur riders to five pounds. This change is effective only at the major tracks, and put amateur and professional riders on the same basis. Previously amateur riders were not restricted as to the amount of overweight they could carry.
