The Friday Show Presented By Woodbine: Coming Soon – Horseracing Integrity And Safety Authority

Earlier this week, the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act sailed through the U.S. House of Representatives with bipartisan support and is awaiting action by the Senate, whose majority leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, is co-sponsor along with Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.The House version of the bill was co-sponsored by Reps. Andy Barr of Kentucky and Paul Tonko of New York.

McConnell has said he intends to get the legislation passed before the end of the year.

If that happens, what is the timeline for implementation of a new national Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority the legislation would create to oversee all of the medication and safety policies for Thoroughbred racing in the U.S.? Who would comprise the governing body and how will those individuals be chosen? How will medication policy enforcement and drug testing overseen by the United States Anti-Doping Agency differ from the current methods employed by state racing commissions?

In this week’s edition of the Friday Show, publisher Ray Paulick and editor in chief Natalie Voss try to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about this major development in the horse racing world.
