§ 1554. Duties of Horse Identifier.
(a) The horse identifier shall:
(1) make an inspection of each horse prior to its departure for the post, and scan each horse to verify the horse's microchip number. He or she shall immediately report to the stewards and the paddock judge any horse which is not properly identified, or has any irregularities from the official identification record of the Board, or does not carry a microchip in accordance with Rule 1597.5. If the horse does not carry a microchip or its microchip number cannot be verified, and there is no approved waiver in the racing office, the horse shall be scratched.
(2) inspect, identify, and prepare identification records and photographs of all horses within the inclosure not previously identified in California, as well as verify the microchip number assigned to a horse under the provisions of Rule 1597.5.
(3) inspect documents of ownership, eligibility, registration, or breeding, as may be necessary to insure proper identification of each horse eligible to compete at the race meeting.
(4) supervise and verify the accurate tattooing, microchipping or branding for identification of any horse within the inclosure.
