LEXINGTON, Ky.—Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association is inviting all horsemen, assistant trainers and veterinarians to participate in a Zoom webinar that will focus on the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority’s Anti-Doping and Medication Control Program, which is currently scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, 2023.
Mary Scollay, Chief of Science for the Horseracing Integrity and Welfare Unit, will be in person Wednesday, December 14 at NOON ET in the Belmont Cafe in the Belmont Park grandstand.
HIWU, part of Drug Free Sport International, is responsible for administering the ADMC program. Dr. Scollay will make a presentation and then remain for a question-and-answer session that will also be streamed online.
Even though the question of the constitutionality of the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act remains unresolved and is making its way through the courts, it is important to prepare for the ADMC, which includes changes in medication policy and testing procedures.
Horsemen who are not able to attend in person are encouraged to participate in the Zoom session and ask questions via ZOOM.
It is expected the seminar can be used for Continuing Education credits.
Please click to register the webinar. Join-in instructions will then be emailed.
