Once the State did away with most rules and allowed pari-mutuels to adopt house rules, the manditory 'scratching' from all games was changed if it had nothing to do with the player's health or ability to play. The industry thought that it was much less confusing to the public to take the player outgame by game until he showed up or it was determined he wasn't going to get there. In the old days.....scratch and fine, plus sit in school all night.
