Today, Senator Mitch McConnell introduced the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act in Lexington, Kentucky. In response, the New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) issued the following statement of support from NYRA President and CEO Dave O’Rourke.

“NYRA has long supported a national approach to medication control and anti-doping across the sport of horse racing. The safety and welfare of the athletes competing at NYRA tracks is our highest priority, which is why NYRA supports the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act and urges quick consideration by Congress.

“NYRA is committed to providing the safest possible environment for racing and training by adopting and implementing the best proven safety practices in consultation with independent experts, veterinarians, horsemen and regulators.”
