races and it shall not be conducted without authorization of the
commissioner in writing. A copy of the regulations adopted pursuant to
this section, and of any amendments thereto, shall be filed in the
office of the commissioner and in the office of the department of state.
A copy of such regulations shall be furnished by the commissioner to any
person making due application therefor. Any person who shall violate
any regulation adopted pursuant to this section shall for every such
violation forfeit to the people of the state the sum of not to exceed
two hundred and fifty dollars to be recovered in a civil action.
