In a short opinion issued February 7, the First District Court of Appeal affirmed last year’s lower court ruling that Florida pari-mutuel regulators’ licensing of pari-mutuel barrel racing failed to follow proper rulemaking procedure.

“ . . . the narrow issue in this case is whether the (Florida Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering’s) policy of treating barrel match racing as an authorized form of quarter horse (sic) racing is an unadopted rule,” the First DCA judges wrote today.
