The New Jersey Racing Commission has jurisdiction over New Jersey's thoroughbred and standardbred permit holders and the authority to regulate racing at the state's four racetracks. The Commission also has jurisdiction over the simulcasting of horse racing activities at these racetracks and New Jersey 's casinos and beginning in 2004 will also be responsible for regulating all activities associated with the recently enacted Off-track and Account Wagering Act. Activities included in the regulation of racing activities are the oversight of pari-mutuel wagering, supervising pari-mutuel operations at all the tracks and granting permits for the conduct of running the thoroughbred and standardbred race meetings in the state where pari-mutuel wagering is allowed.
The Commission allots annual race dates to existing permit holders. It licenses, fingerprints, photographs, and screens all personnel working for or connected with track operations, including management, horsemen, owners and prospective stockholders, to ensure that no one connected with racing is unsuitable as to character and integrity. It oversees the actual conduct of races, supervises the extraction of fluid and blood specimens from horses for chemical analysis and conducts initial hearings on appeals resulting from disciplinary actions that may lead to judicial proceedings at the appellate level. The Commission assigned significant resources to oversee casino simulcasting of racing events.
