TITLE 11: ALCOHOL, HORSE RACING, LOTTERY, AND VIDEO GAMING
Section 1406.10 Procedures of Judges
The judges must occupy the judges' stand at the time the horses pass the winning post, and place the horses. They must announce their decisions promptly, and such decisions shall be final, unless objection to the winner, or any horse placed within the purse is made and sustained, but this rule shall not prevent the judges from correcting any mistake, such correction being subject to confirmation by the stewards.
Section 1406.20 Determine Finish
a) The judges shall determine the order of finish of as many horses as they may think proper. When the judges differ, the majority shall govern.
b) The placing of horses shall be determined as exclusively indicated by their noses.
Section 1406.30 Photo Finishes
a) Where photographs by cameras approved by the Board are taken of finishes, placing judges shall, before making decision, order and inspect photographs of all finishes where the winning margin is less than half a length, and in other cases, where the horses are widely spaced across the track. Copies of such photographs shall be posted in convenient places for the inspection of the public.
b) The stewards shall review all such decisions of the placing judges and confirm or correct such decisions before a race is declared official.
