Game 13.21 Game 13.21 Husbands and wives. Suspension, denials or revocations against either a husband or a wife shall apply equally to the licensee's spouse unless the division finds that the continued participation in racing by the affected spouse will not circumvent the intent of the rule or ruling by permitting one spouse to serve in essence as a substitute for a person ineligible to participate in a particular activity. In making such a decision, the stewards and division shall consider but not be limited to the following: the length of involvement in racing of the affected parties, the economic interdependence of the parties, and the nature of the licenses. However, the spouse of a person suspended for 10 or fewer days shall not be suspended.

Immediate family member means mother, father, spouse, son, daughter, stepchildren and spouses of immediate family members.
