The Maryland Racing Commission was established in 1920. The
Commission is composed of three members appointed by the Governor
for a term of six years. The Commission licenses all persons, asso-
ciations or corporations which holds or conducts any racing meeting
within the State where horseracing is permitted for any stake, purse
or reward. The Commission promulgates such rules and regulations
as may be necessary to govern the races. It may also regulate the
size of the purse, the price of admission, or the charge made for any
article or service sold at the meets. All persons engaged in racing
in Maryland under assumed names must register with the Commis-
sion and receive its permission for the use of such name. The Com-
mission has the power to revoke or suspend the license of any person
or corporation engaged in racing within the State who violates the
racing laws or the rules of the Commission (Code 1951, Art. 78B,
secs. 1-2, 6-25; Code 1955, supp., Art. 78B).
