Under the current Horse Racing Commission Act, the Commission must supervise all types of horse racing.  The amendments in this Bill require the commission to supervise only those types of horse racing specified in the regulations.

The regulations and rules under The Horse Racing Commission Act make The Horse Racing Regulation Act unnecessary, and it is repealed by this Bill.
