Since its inception over a decade ago, the RMTC has worked tirelessly to develop and promote uniform rules and testing standards at the national level; coordinate research and educational programs that seek to ensure the integrity of racing and the health and welfare of racehorses and participants; and to protect the interests of the racing public. Those efforts have culminated in the National Uniform Medication Program. This program provides unprecedented reform for horse racing in the areas of uniform medication rules, penalties and testing guidelines. The Program is comprised of the Controlled Therapeutic Substances list, a policy limiting administration of furosemide to third-party veterinarians, a multiple medication violation (“MMV”) penalty system, and our laboratory accreditation/external quality assurance program – (the “Reforms”). These Reforms are in the best interest of the health and welfare of the horse and the safety of all participants. They enhance the integrity of the sport, ensure a level playing field for horsemen who race in multiple jurisdictions, and make uniform regulation of U.S. horseracing a reality. Working with jurisdictions to facilitate adoption of the National Uniform Medication Program is a top RMTC priority.
