  The state racing and wagering board shall, as a condition  of  racing,
require  any  franchised corporation and every other corporation subject
to its jurisdiction to withhold one percent of all purses,  except  that
for  the  franchised corporation, starting on September first, two thou-
sand seven and continuing  through  August  thirty-first,  two  thousand
[twelve]  THIRTEEN, two percent of all purses shall be withheld, and, in
the case  of  the  franchised  corporation,  to  pay  such  sum  to  the

state  college within this state with an approved equine science program
to test for the presence of steroids in horses,  provided  further  that
the  qualified organization shall also, in an amount to be determined by
its board of directors, annually include in its expenditures for benevo-
lence programs, funds to  support  an  organization  providing  services
necessary  to  backstretch  employees,  and,  in the case of every other
corporation, to pay such one percent sum of  purses  to  the  horsemen's
organization  or  its  successor  that  was  first  entitled  to receive
payments pursuant to this section in accordance with rules of the  board
