Sections 19617.5(b), 19605.7(b), 19614.2, 19606 of California Horse Racing Law state that a percentage of handle from each mule race is to be allocated to the promotion of agriculture in California, in general, and the breeding and owning of animals born and raised in California, in particular.    To be consistent with the intent of this legislation, a Cal Bred program has been initiated within the American Mule Racing Association.

OWNER:  The  person eligible to receive the funds is the owner or lessee listed on the registration papers with the paymaster on the date the race is run.  The owner must be a voting member in good standing of the AMRA in the year earnings accrue.

FUNDING:  Money received from each Association (i.e., Fair or race track) derived from a percentage of the handle on every mule race funds the Cal Bred payouts.

EARNINGS:  Money will be paid to Cal Bred mules placing first through third ($200 to 1st; $150 to 2nd; $100 to 3rd) in a race run in California.   The races do not have to be Cal Bred races.

REGISTRATION:  Weanlings and yearlings shall be registered by AMRA members for $25;  $50 for non members. Two year olds and up shall be registered for  $50 for members;  $100 for non members.  Earnings will not accrue until Cal Bred Registration is paid in full and DNA tests completed.
