The fingerprint fee for your license pays for the cost of the background investigation, including the fee charged by the Arizona Department of Public Safety and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to process your fingerprints. The fee you paid when you had your fingerprints taken is the fee charged by that entity for taking the fingerprints.
Most racing licenses are good for two years from the date your application was processed. Your expiration date will be listed on the license received from ADG’s Racing Division. Licenses for Track Owners, Racing Officials, Tote and Advanced Deposit Wagering (ADW) companies, Tote and ADW Employees, County Fair Managers and some other key categories expire after one year. Please check the Licensing Fee Chart found at Forms, Licensing & Fees.

Alternatively, the Racing Division accepts business checks, money orders, Visa/MC, or cash for licensing fees at licensing offices at the race tracks. Please make checks payable to ADG. If payment is from a foreign bank, then the payment must be made in United States funds. You can mail your payments to Arizona Department of Gaming Racing Division, 1110 W. Washington St., Suite 450, Phoenix, AZ 85007.
Horses may be entered to race at any commercial or county fair race track if the registration papers are on file with a racing office of a permittee currently conducting live racing in Arizona. However, in instances where a race overfills, some Racing Secretaries give preference to entries whose papers are on file at the track where the entry is made.
Post times vary from track to track; therefore, we suggest that you visit the website of the race track for updated information. For your convenience, we have added direct links to their websites from the Racing Division’s website.
Awards must be paid to the registered breeder and payments must match the vendor identification form (W-9) that was filed and reported to the IRS.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that the State report your breeder awards income for tax purposes. The vendor identification form (W-9) must be filed with the State before a payment can be processed.
