BILL NUMBER:S5330

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and
breeding law, in relation to New York bred and/or wholly owned harness
races

PURPOSE:

To authorize harness races which are limited to only New York bred
and/or wholly owned horses.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1.Amends the Racing, Pari-Mutuel Wagering and Breeding Law by
adding a new section 307a which provides that any association or
corporation licensed to conduct harness race meetings at which
pari-mutuel betting is permitted may run races which are limited to
New York bred and/or wholly owned horses. These races would subject to
such terms and conditions as any other race authorized pursuant to law
or regulation. Further, if, in the opinion of the corporation or
association, sufficient competition cannot be had among such
restricted class of horses, the race may be eliminated for that day
and a substitute race provided instead.

Section 2.Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

Depending on the time of the year and the track, many times there are
limited opportunities for New York harness horses to enter races due
to the influx of out-of-state horses. This legislation seeks to
address the issue by offering New York State harness tracks the option
to hold New York-only races to ensure that New York owned or bred
harness horses are given an opportunity to compete.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
