The Maryland Racing Commission was formed
in 1920 (Chapter 273, Acts of 1920). It licenses all
persons, associations, or corporations that hold any
horse racing meet within the State where racing is
permitted for any stake, purse, or reward. The Com-
mission makes all regulations governing the races.
It may also regulate the size of a 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 Commission for permission to use
such names. The Commission may revoke or
suspend the license of any person or corporation
engaged in racing within the State who violates the
racing laws or Commission rules.
The Commission's nine members are appointed
for four-year terms by the Governor with Senate
advice and consent. No more than six members may
belong to the same political party. At least three
members must be knowledgeable or experienced in
some aspect of thoroughbred racing, and at least
three in some aspect of harness racing. The Gover-
nor designates the chairperson. The Secretary of
Licensing and Regulation appoints the Executive
Director. Authorization for the Commission con-
tinues until July 1, 2001 (Code 1957, Art. 78B).

thoroughbred track licensee of a portion of the
mutuel pool of all its horse races during the year.
The Fund is then apportioned between a purse for
races involving Maryland-bred horses and awards
given to breeder, owner, and stallion for horses bred
in Maryland (Code 1957, Art. 78B, sec. 16).
The Committee consists of five members ap-
pointed to one-year terms by the Maryland Racing
