F. A New Mexico-licensed horse racetrack that is within a radius of eighty miles of any other New Mexico-licensed horse racetrack with a race meet in progress may only conduct pari-mutuel wagering on imported horse races if there is a written agreement between the two racetrack licensees allowing pari-mutuel wagering on imported horse races during the period of time that the live horse races are taking place.
