(3) Verify that the correct claiming price is on deposit with the association before any claim in a claiming race is accepted as official. (4) Receive and disburse the purses and other awards of each race. (5) Receive all stakes, entrance money, fines, purchase money in claiming races and other monies that properly come into the paymaster's possession. (6) Accept money belonging to another association, provided the money is returned within five working days to that association. (7) Disclose the Cal-bred awards to the respective breed agencies.
