A. For the purpose of promoting and encouraging the breeding of Arizona bred dogs, each meeting shall offer a number of races equal to an average of not less than one for each day of racing which shall be exclusively for Arizona bred dogs. In the event the race does not fill, it shall be offered as an open race in which Arizona bred dogs have a preference of entry.
B. For the purpose of promoting and encouraging the breeding of Arizona bred horses, each meeting shall offer not less than one race each day of racing which shall be exclusively for Arizona bred horses. In the event such race does not fill, it shall be offered as an open race in which Arizona bred horses have a preference of entry.
C. To promote and improve the breeding of horses and dogs within the state, a sum of money equal to ten per cent of the first money of every purse won by a horse or dog bred in this state shall be paid by the permittee to the owner or lessee, or his heirs, devisees or successors, of the dam of the animal at the time the animal was foaled or whelped. Such amount shall be paid within thirty days after the close of the racing meeting. All claims or disputes as to the dam of a horse or dog bred in this state shall be determined by the permittee, subject to review by the commission, and the decision of the commission shall be final and conclusive. A horse or dog bred in this state means a horse foaled or a dog whelped in this state and certified by the commission. To be eligible for Arizona bred certification, the horse or dog must be physically present within the state for not less than six months during the period from the date he is foaled or whelped to the first anniversary date of his having been foaled or whelped. In addition, a dog must be eligible to race pursuant to section 5-109 in order to be eligible for Arizona bred certification.
D. The commission may contract with a breeders' association to certify that an animal is Arizona bred or is an Arizona stallion. The commission may authorize the association, racing organization or department to charge and collect a reasonable fee from the breeder or a stallion owner to cover the cost of certification or transfer and verification that the animal is Arizona bred or an Arizona stallion.
