Description
Established in 1933 the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB) regulates authorized California horse races that involve pari-mutuel betting and protects the public from fraudulent operations.
Background
The California Horse Racing Board (CHRB) was established in 1933 as an independent agency. Its creation came as the result of a constitutional amendment that added Section 25a to Article IV of the Constitution of the State of California. The 1933 amendment required the creation of the CHRB and established its authority over the regulation of horse racing and pari-mutuel wagering at licensed California racetracks. The Constitutional Revision of 1966 replaced Section 25a with Section 19b of Article IV of the California Constitution. The CHRB's authority and enforcement practices are derived from the Business and Professions Code, Chapter 4, Division 8 known as the Horse Racing Law (Stats 1933, ch.436, sections 1-19 p.1127-1137).
