Good cause includes: (1) unforeseen administrative issues in removing the horse from the Veterinarian's List of another racing jurisdiction; (2) the location of the horse prevents it from being evaluated by the official veterinarian of another racing jurisdiction and cleared from that jurisdiction's Veterinarian's List, and the horse is approved to race by a California official veterinarian; or (3) any other unforeseen event or reason that would prevent a horse that would otherwise not be on a Veterinarian's List from being cleared from the Veterinarian's List of another racing jurisdiction. (k) when, except with prior approval of the stewards, such horse has not been on the grounds of the association or its approved auxiliary stable area for at least 24 hours prior to the time the race is to be run.
