CA Bus & Prof Code Section 19613.05


Any association, including a fair, that conducts thoroughbred racing shall pay to the owners’ organization, contracting with the association with respect to the conduct of thoroughbred racing, an additional 134 percent of the portion deducted for purses, required by Section 19613, for a national marketing program. These funds shall be used exclusively for the promotion of thoroughbred racing in conjunction with a national thoroughbred racing marketing program. Funds that may not be needed for this effort shall be returned to the purse pool at the racing associations where these funds were raised in direct proportion to the amount in which they were initially raised. The owners’ organization shall file a report with the board and the respective Senate and Assembly Committees on Governmental Organization, accounting for the receipt and expenditure of these funds on an annual basis. The board of directors of the owners’ organization shall have the discretion to select the national marketing organization that shall be the recipient of these funds. If the board of directors of the owners’ organization decides at any time not to contribute to the national marketing organization, notice shall be given promptly to the respective racing association or associations and the 134 percent deduction shall cease until the owners’ organization decides otherwise.


This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2018, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2018, deletes or extends that date.
