Testimonials

“As a Thoroughbred racehorse owner, I am very supportive of your program to advance integrity in racing medications so there is a level playing field and the horses are protected from damaging medications.”
Judith Johnston

“The RMTC is crucial in protecting the health and welfare of the racehorse as well as the integrity of racing competition. The AAEP is a founding member of RMTC and its veterinarians participate on the Scientific Advisory Committee and Board of Directors – ensuring that our equine athletes have a voice in racing medication policies.”

“Ensuring the integrity of horseracing is paramount to the vitality of our sport. In the past year, the RMTC has done more for the integrity of horseracing than any other single organization. Without the support of tracks, this important work cannot continue.”
“The RMTC is essential to assist the racing industry as we face new and complicated challenges that thwart the integrity of racing. [They] have been a reliable resource to commissions and investigators on matters pertaining to horse health, medication use and misuse. The availability of the Tactical Research Program…is another item in the investigative tool box to eliminate cheaters from our industry and deny them the chance to do further harm. I give the RMTC and Dr. Benson high marks on all aspects to what they mean to the racing industry in maintaining high standards of equine protection and integrity of the sport.”
“The Jockey Club has been an active supporter of the RMTC since it was created and we look forward to continued collaboration with its broad base of member organizations as the industry strives to implement uniform rules, testing standards and penalties on a national level.”

RMTC Donors

We are extremely grateful to our donors for their generous financial support of the RMTC. Without the support of these individuals and organizations, our efforts to strengthen the integrity of racing would not be possible.
