Riding Crop Will Be ‘Theme’ Of New York Commission’s October Meeting

With announcements made by several major racing jurisdictions about the riding crop this month, the New York State Gaming Commission said in its Monday meeting that it will hear industry participants’ input on the issue next month, reports the Thoroughbred Daily News.

“I think we all agree that this is a matter that needs to be brought to closure sooner rather than later. Some of us contend that it’s been out there too long,” said chairman Barry Sample. “The theme of the October meeting is going to be the crop.”

It will take another meeting beyond October to vote on any proposed whip rule the NYSGC may write, and if passed, the rule must be published in the New York State Register and be sent out for general public comment. The NYSGC will then take a final vote, so implementation would be in 2021 at the earliest.
