« Return to News
The RMTC works to address issues related to the testing of race horses to prevent the use of prohibited and dangerous medications or substances.
The organization's stated goals, besides recommending uniform national rules, include defining the therapeutic use of legal medications, the development of uniform testing laboratory technical standards, and the implementation of educational programs designed to maintain the integrity of horse racing.
Both groups are also striving to develop medication rules that can eventually be adopted in all racing jurisdictions.
At upcoming meetings, the Ohio State Racing Commission intends to invite representatives of the U.S. Trotting Assn., National Horsemen's Benevolent & Protective Assn., Ohio Horsemen's Benevolent & Protective Assn., Ohio Harness Horsemen's Assn., Jockey Club and veterinary organizations to attend and present their opinions on medication issues.
