The Washington Horse Racing Commission was created by the state Legislature in March of
1933. The Commission is required to license, regulate and supervise all horse racing in the state.
The Commission is composed of five members appointed by the Governor. Members serve
six-year terms and may serve more than one term. One member must be an active breeder of
race horses in the state. In addition, four members of the Legislature are appointed ex-officio
Commission members. These are non-voting members whose duties are to assist in the policymaking
functions of the Commission, to collect data deemed essential to future legislative
proposals and to exchange information with the Commission. Two of these ex-officio members
are appointed by the President of the Senate, one from each party, and two are appointed by the
Speaker of the House, also one from each party. Ex-officio members serve two-year terms and
may be reappointed.
The Commission appoints an Executive Secretary to act as Chief Operating Officer. The
Executive Secretary is responsible for day-to-day operations of the Commission, implementation
of policies and enforcement of Commission rules.
The Commission employs approximately 30 individuals, most of whom are seasonal. The
Commission has a main office in Olympia and maintains satellite offices during the racing season
at Emerald Downs in Auburn, at Sun Downs in Kennewick, at Walla Walla Fair and Frontier Days
in Walla Walla, at Dayton Days in Dayton and at Days of Real Sport in Waitsburg. Approximately
90 percent of the Commissionís annual revenues are generated from taxes on parimutuel
wagering at the race tracks and at off-track betting sites. The remaining 10 percent comes
primarily from licensing fees. The 2005-07 operating budget is approximately $5 million.
