National Association of Racing

The National Association of Racing (Japanese: 地方競馬全国協会 Chiho Keiba Zenkoku Kyokai, or NAR) is a public company consisting of the local governments in Japan (Prefectures, cities/towns/villages or unions of them) who operate horse racing. In Japan, horse racing operated by local governments are called chiho keiba (Japanese: 地方競馬).

NAR itself does not operate horse races. [1]
