1. All owner(s) listed on the claim slip of an eligible horse have joined the Ohio HBPA Claiming Insurance Program by paying a $25 one-time fee to the Ohio HBPA and filling out the Claiming Insurance Program enrollment documents at least one day before a horse for which the owner(s) submit a claim races.
