5. The terms and conditions of any contract with a race track made under this section are subject to the approval of the respective groups which represent a majority of the horsemen racing at the track licensed by the commission and a majority of the applicable breeders in this state.

6. The provisions of the Federal Interstate Horseracing Act of 1978, Title 15, Sections 3001 through 3007, U.S. Code, shall be instructive regarding the intent of this section.
