Kentucky Tightens Jockey Advertising Rules

Friday, 9th June 2006

The Kentucky Horse Racing Authority "unanimously voted to tighten its rules for advertising on jockey clothing (with an exemption for logos advertising the Jockeys' Guild or the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund)" reported thoroughbredtimes.com. The new rule states: "A jockey shall not wear advertising or promotional material of any kind (whether for a non-profit or for-profit entity) on clothing within 1 hour of a race." Jockeys may wear advertising in Kentucky "if they obtain written approval from the horse owner, in addition to the approval from track management & the stewards, by the time of entry"; jockeys are not allowed to wear any advertising "that would conflict with track or race sponsorships".
