(a) When two or more horses in different trial races have the
same qualifying time, to a degree of one-hundredth of a second, or more exact
measurement if photofinish equipment permits, for fewer available positions
in the finals or consolations, the stewards shall conduct a draw by lot.

(b) A horse may not draw into the finals or consolations instead
of a horse that finished ahead of the horse.
(c) When scheduled races are trial heats for futurities or
stakes races electronically timed from the starting gates, an association
may not move the starting gates or allow the starting gates to be moved until
all trial heats are complete, except in an emergency or to renovate the track
as determined by the stewards.
