the New York state thoroughbred breeding and development fund
established pursuant to section two hundred fifty-two of the racing,
pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law, for the purpose of funding the
operation of retired race horse aftercare facilities. Any contributions
made to the thoroughbred breeding and development fund pursuant to this

credited to the New York state thoroughbred retirement race horse and
aftercare fund and shall be used only for those purposes set forth in
paragraph h of subdivision two of section two hundred fifty-four of the
