Racing Key License

About the License

The State of Colorado requires a Key Occupational License issued by the Division of Racing Events to work in the racing industry in Colorado. Key Occupational Licenses are valid for three years.

Between renewal years, licensees will need to submit to the Division of Racing a Validation Card (DR 9020) every year. To expedite the validation process, The Division of Racing recommends submitting validation cards to the Division Offices prior to your arrival at Arapahoe Park.
