More than 70,000 Thoroughbred racing participants and administrators across the country have registered with the federal Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority in compliance with the registration rule that went into effect on July 1.
To date, 30,061 covered persons and 41,953 covered horses have been registered.
As previously announced, the authority will require compliance with its registration rule in order to race beginning Monday, March 27. Covered persons and horses not in compliance with the rule will be unable to race until they register in the HISA portal.
“Reaching 70,000 registered participants is a significant milestone,” HISA CEO Lisa Lazarus said. “We are grateful for the cooperation of the vast majority of racing participants under HISA’s jurisdiction who have now registered, and we strongly urge any who have not yet registered to do so by March 27 to remain able to race. With support from the racing community, we’re continuing to strengthen the safety and integrity of our great sport.”
Racing participants who have not yet registered themselves or their horses with HISA may do so at hisaus.org/registration.
