RAC300. GENERAL RACING PROVISIONS
RAC300.1 AQHA does not assume or accept duty or responsibility for safety at any race or races in regard to participants, third parties or participating horses.
RAC300.2 As an express condition of the privilege to participate at an AQHA-recognized race event, each owner of an American Quarter Horse, trainer and participant assumes the risks of participation and releases and discharges AQHA, its officers, directors, representatives and employees from any and all liability, whenever or however arising, as to personal injury or property damage occurring as a result of participation in a race event.
RAC300.3 AQHA recognizes that racing commissions (state, provincial and national) and other recognized turf governing bodies (collectively “Racing Authorities”) adopt their own racing rules. In cases where races eligible for AQHA recognition are run under the supervision of a Racing Authority, the Racing Authority’s rules take precedence. While the rules of Racing Authorities take precedence, AQHA, for purposes of AQHA records and programs, reserves the right to deny or revoke recognition of a race which does not observe the rules and regulations contained herein.
