CHRB Meeting Advisory

ARCADIA, Calif. (Mar. 10, 2016) -- The Medication and Track Safety Committee will conduct a public meeting March 16 in the Baldwin Terrace Room at Santa Anita Park beginning at 10 a.m. The agenda and package of materials, which are for discussion only, focus on horse welfare and expanded out-of-competition testing, including a ban on anabolic steroids.

The horse welfare items would mandate the transfer of records pertaining to joint injections for claimed horses, require trainers to maintain records of veterinary treatments, and insure that all treatments are justified by a medical condition and based on advice from a veterinarian.
