Re: [RC] okay, another question - Truman Prevatt

Title: "There is always a well-known solution to every human problem--neat, plausible, and wrong
 To be in violation of the rule one would have to prove pacing or promoting. Without proof that - the rule is not violated.

I disagree.  If proof of intent were required, then the rules would be meaningless.  The unentered rider could say, "I was just riding along, not pacing" and no one could prove otherwise.  The only sensible way to read these rules is to equate the FACT of riding along with pacing.

The bottom line here is that you can not prove intent but you can prove whether or not the other horse rode along and it is this BEHAVIOUR that the rules prohibit.
