Bernard Daney, chairman of the Delaware Thoroughbred Racing Commission was re-appointed to the position of secretary/treasurer of the National Racing Compact earlier this month.
The Compact is a national governmental entity unto its own and currently has 15 member states along with nine other jurisdictions that participate.
“I am honored to have been reappointed to this body,” Daney said in a release. “I support the goal of having uniform requirements and standards of honesty and integrity for licensing for participants in pari-mutuel racing and will continue to work very hard to increase the number of states and jurisdictions as members.”
According to John Wayne, executive director of the DTRC, “The Compact is a one-step process for licensing owners, trainers, jockeys, or drivers that participate in several jurisdictions during the course of the year.
“Much akin to an ‘E-Z Pass’ system for racing licenses, the process has been well received by the participants that do not have to submit multiple license applications or fingerprints.”
Wayne serves on several of the Compact committees that oversee licensing. “The process is designed to not duplicate licensing requirements,” he said. “When you submit one, you’re done.”
