Beginning Friday, May 13, 2011, the stewards will strictly enforce the Jock Mount Fee requirements pursuant to the Illinois Racing Board rules. The rule requires an owner of a horse who is entered to run MUST have an adequate amount of money in their HGCA account to cover the jockey mount fees for each horse.Owners whose horses have been entered in the race card and do not guarantee the payment of jock fees or do not have the required money amount of money in their account to pay jock mount fess will have their horse SCRATCHED prior to the horses arrival in the paddock. Violations of this rule are subject to adjudication of the Stewards. This rule is designed to keep the integrity of racing at Arlington Park at the highest level.We appreciate the cooperation of all owners and trainers in this matter.
