REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Racing Commission respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to waive competitive selection in the amount of $5,400,000.00 from various funds and ALIs in FY21, to pay owners of winning Thoroughbred horses at races held at Ohio racetracks.  
  The Racing Commission is seeking approval to pay out awards on behalf of the Thoroughbred Race Program in FY21. These awards are paid out as personal services expenses rather than subsidies so that 1099s can be issued through the state accounting system. 1099s must be issued in order to report any earnings that may be taxable.

Section 3769.083 provides the fund (5620) shall be used to promote races and provide purses for accredited Ohio Thoroughbred horses and Ohio foaled horses. The casino tax was passed by Ohio voters in 2009 as part of a constitutional amendment and the portion distributed to the Racing Commission is to be used to support purses, breeding programs, and operations at commercial horse racing tracks. The VLT Revenue (5NL0) was authorized by Am. Sub. H.B. 386 of the 129th General Assembly and is to be spent for the benefit of breeding and racing in the state.

The Racing Commission pays out awards on a monthly basis and throughout the year horsemen can often exceed the $50,000 threshold. There is no way of predicting which horsemen will exceed the $50,000 threshold for the FY or at what time of the year the threshold will be exceeded. We have estimated the amount of awards that may be paid out based on historical experience. Approval of this waiver of competitive selection will enable us to continue the Thoroughbred Race program in the State of Ohio.
