(1) Generally. The board shall approve the number of jai alai playing and greyhound racing days to be awarded, which shall not be less than one hundred (100) days in a year unless the board waives this requirement for an association's initial year of operation. Unless delegated to the division by the board in accordance with section 12-574-F2(a) of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies, the board shall approve the actual days awarded, the number of performances, the post times of the first game or race for each performance and the number of games or races in each performance. Post times for games or races other than the first of each performance shall be established by management and normally adhered to within one minute. However, upon request from management, the division representative may approve extension of the betting period if such extension is required by the circumstances and is in the best interest of the public. Failure to comply with the post times or approved extensions shall constitute an infraction of the regulations which may subject the violating association to a fine, license suspension or both.
(2) Annual application. An association licensee shall annually apply for jai alai or greyhound racing dates and file such information as the board may direct. In awarding jai alai or greyhound racing dates the board shall consider the best interests of the state, the interests of the associations and any other pertinent considerations. The board shall as far as practicable avoid conflicts in the dates assigned.
(3) Sunday performances. With the approval of the legislative body of the town in which the meet is scheduled to take place and upon the request of the licensee, Sundays may be included in the period of days assigned for a greyhound or jai alai meet.

(1) Annual application. Unless waived by the board, the board shall approve the number of operating days to be awarded and the actual days awarded. The executive director shall approve the program of races for each performance, the time of the first race for each performance and the hours of daily operation. The association licensee shall annually apply for operating dates and file such forms as the board may direct.
