Lexington, KY -  The revisions to its racing regulatory standards  that were adopted by the Association of Racing Commissioners International (ARCI) at its March meeting in New Orleans have now been formally posted.


ARCI Model Rules serve as a guide to jurisdictions in the making of racing regulatory policy.   In some instances, portions of the ARCI Model Rules have the force of law by virtue of statutes or rules incorporating them “by reference”.   This means that when the ARCI adopts a rule, it automatically becomes the applicable policy in jurisdictions that have done that.
