Rule R52-7

Horse Racing

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 35193

NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION

Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Section 4-38-4 requires rules to be promulgated that will govern officially recognized race meets.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

The Department received comments requesting that the fingerprinting requirement be removed and number of horses required for an official raced be adjusted. These were the only comments which were received. The Department acknowledged and acted upon those comments. Section R52-7-7 was amended in 2009 at the request of industry. The amendments changed the requirements for fingerprinting on license applications and reduced the number of horses for an officially recognized race meet.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The continuation of this rule is necessary to enable the horse industry to record race results and receive official recognition with national horse breed organizations. This adds to the value of the sire and dam of the offspring. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
