Access to Vet Records on Ship-ins.

The Racing Medication and Testing Consortium on November 26, 2018 submitted a proposal to modify the Model Rules concerning access to a horse’s veterinary records if that horse has shipped in to the grounds of a licensed racetrack within 14 days of a race.

While this submission was made in the days prior to the meeting, it is not currently on the agenda although members of the committee may bring this up under “Other Business”.

The ARCI Equine Welfare Committee has not considered this proposal and no formal input from the ARCI Regulatory Veterinarians Committee has been received.   That being said, there has been some regulatory veterinarian involvement in the development of this proposal at the RMTC.
