Confident federal courts will smile on his opinion that state "jail-time" rules restricting when and where a claimed horse can race go against federal commerce laws, among others, owner Jerry Jamgotchian will file another lawsuit Oct. 7.
Thoroughbred owner Jerry Jamgotchian, who is suing the Indiana Horse Racing Commission over so-called "jail-time" claiming rules, has received a waiver of the rule from Pennsylvania for a horse he recently claimed there.
Owner Jerry Jamgotchian has filed a civil case in U.S. District court that argues an Indiana rule that requires horses claimed in the state to wait at least 60 days before racing outside Indiana is invalid under federal law.
The California Horse Racing Board gave final approval April 26 to a rule change that eliminates "jail time" for most horses that are claimed.
