21. The fee prescribed in section 4 is payable for a whole race calendar before it begins.
Where a race calendar comprises more than 10 race programs, it may be divided into groups of 10 programs and the fee becomes payable for each group before it begins.
Where, after division in groups, a group includes less than 10 programs, the fee for such group shall be paid after the payments for the other groups have been made.
Where the average amounts wagered per race cannot be established based on the 2 calendar years preceding the application, either year must then be used; if this cannot be done, the average shall be established by the board.
