Game 23.03 Annual report.
The division shall require each association holding a license in Wisconsin to report annually on the participation of Wisconsin residents in the racing of greyhounds in the state. The report must be submitted each year within 90 days after the last day of the race meet. The report shall include statistics on the number of Wisconsin residents who own contract kennels at the track and the number of Wisconsin owned greyhounds which have raced at the track in the past year. Each association must report on how any kennel opening occurred in the past year was filled. If a kennel opening has occurred, qualified Wisconsin residents must have been considered. The qualifications a Wisconsin resident must demonstrate in order to be considered include but are not limited to: residency in Wisconsin; an established history in the greyhound industry; a breeding program – including ownership of a farm or brood stock and/or relationships with breeders; the percentage of greyhounds owned vs. leased by the applicant; and financial responsibility. The division shall review each association's report and may make recommendations or may impose requirements relative to promoting participation of Wisconsin residents in greyhound racing at its track.
