|Rule Text||(a) The Board of Stewards appointed for a race meeting shall, immediately prior to the commencement of that meeting, designate the stakes, futurities or futurity trials or other races in which a jockey or a driver who is under suspension for ten days or less for a riding or driving infraction will be permitted to compete, notwithstanding the fact that such jockey or driver is technically under suspension at the time the designated race is to be run.
(b) Official rulings for riding or driving infractions of ten days or less shall state: "The term of this suspension shall not prohibit participation in designated races in California." However, the Board of Stewards may prohibit a jockey or a driver from participating in designated races if such jockey or driver has previously been suspended at least twice during the race meeting specified in subsection (a) of this rule.
(c) Prior to the commencement of a meeting, a listing of the races designated in accordance with subsection (a) of this rule shall be submitted in writing to the Board. A copy of the list of designated races shall be posted in the Jockey or Driver's Room, and any other such place deemed appropriate by the stewards.
(d) A suspended jockey or driver must be named at the time of entry to participate in any designated race.
(e) A day in which a suspended jockey or driver participates in one designated race in California shall count as a suspension day.
(f) A day in which a suspended jockey or driver participates in more than one designated race in California shall not count as a suspension day.
(g) Notwithstanding the above, a day in which a jockey or a driver participates in one or more designated races in another jurisdiction while under suspension in California shall not count as a suspension day.
(h) A suspended jockey or driver who participates in more than one designated race under subsection (f) of this regulation, or in one or more designated race(s) under subsection (g) of this regulation, shall complete his or her term of suspension on an equivalent day of the week following the day on which the jockey or driver participated in the designated race(s).
