A person desiring a Class C license shall make application on forms provided by the commission and, upon written request of the commission, shall provide information supplemental to the application. Applications may be obtained from and filed with the licensing office at any current race meeting regulated by the commission, or with the commission's main office.
An application for a Class C license must include the following information with respect to the applicant:
date of birth;
social security number;
home telephone number;
names and addresses of previous employers;
a signed statement authorizing the release of information to the commission and the Alcohol and Gambling Enforcement Division; and
if the applicant is 18 through 70 years of age, a completed FBI fingerprint card.
An application shall not be considered filed until the application form has been filled out completely, and all information requested by the commission has been supplied.
Each association shall submit to the commission for its approval or disapproval the names of all persons whom the association has selected as racing officials, and other employees whose duties relate to the actual running of races. The list shall include, where applicable, the following racing officials:
assistant racing secretary;
claims clerk (thoroughbred, quarterhorse, or Arabian);
clerk of course (harness);
clerk of scales (thoroughbred, quarter horse, or Arabian);
clocker (thoroughbred, quarter horse, or Arabian);
director of security;
jockeys' or drivers' room custodian;
program director (harness);
track superintendent; and
any other official as designated by the commission.
The list of racing officials' names shall be submitted to the commission in writing at least 30 days prior to the opening of each race meeting.
The association shall be responsible for filing a complete application for a Class C license with respect to each nominee who has not been previously licensed by the commission as a racing official.
The commission may request any person whose name is proposed as a racing official to submit to a physical examination and to forward the results of the examination to the commission. The request shall be made only where there is a reasonable basis for suggesting that the applicant's physical condition would hinder or prevent the applicant from performing the duties of a racing official.
The commission shall act on the association's list of officials at a meeting of the commission. If commission staff recommends disapproval of an official, the association shall be notified of that recommendation in advance of the commission's meeting.
Under no circumstances shall an identifier, placing judge, or patrol judge be approved by the commission unless the person has satisfactorily passed an optical examination within 90 days prior to approval evidencing at least 20-20 vision (corrected) and the ability to distinguish colors.
