The Louisiana State Racing Commission (LSRC) adopted changes to the Claiming Rule, Title 35 Section 9905, at a meeting held August 24, 2015.
Section 9905 specifies that:

“A.     Except as otherwise provided herein, a claimed horse shall not enter in starter, optional or claiming races for 30 days after being claimed in a race in which the determining eligibility price is less than twenty five percent more than the price at which the horse was claimed.  The day claimed shall not count, but the following calendar day shall be the first and the horse shall be entitled to enter whenever necessary so the horse may start on the thirty-first day following the claim for any claiming price.  The provision shall not apply to starter handicaps in which the weight to be carried is assigned by the handicapper.  A similar rule in other states will be recognized and enforced.”

This Rule will go into effect on September 20, 2015.
