(B) The owner or lessee of any standardbred stallion desiring to use him for breeding purposes and to have him qualify under this rule must register said stallion with the Ohio state racing commission. Said registration shall be on forms provided by the commission. A stallion which is to stand for the first time in Ohio, must be registered prior to the time he first services a mare that particular breeding season. Beginning with the 1986 breeding season the fee shall be one hundred dollars for the initial registration of a stallion.

(C) Registration of stallions remaining in the state for more than one breeding season must be renewed annually by November thirtieth preceding the breeding season on forms provided by the commission. Beginning with the 1986 breeding season the renewal fee shall be twenty-five dollars.

(D) Owners of standardbred stallions registered with the racing commission shall submit by November thirtieth a report of mares bred during the preceding twelve months.

(E) Cancellation of incorrect registrations. If the commission finds an outstanding registration to be incorrect such registration may be cancelled and notice thereof shall be sent to the owner of the horse.

(F) Cancellation or suspension of registrations. Upon failure of an owner or lessee of a registered stallion to furnish the commission requested information relative to the registration of a horse, the commission may suspend or cancel the registration.

(G) Execution of false application for registration or transfer. If the commission finds that an application for registration or transfer contains false or misleading information, the commission may summon the person who executed said application and any other person who has knowledge thereof. Failure to respond to such summons may cause the commission to suspend or cancel the registration of horses owned by such person. After hearing, the commission may suspend, cancel or bar from further registration horses owned by the person who executed the false or misleading application.

(H) Registration correction fee. Any person filing an application for registration with incorrect or incomplete information may be charged five dollars to defray costs for re-registration.
