Statement by Keeneland Regarding Uniform Medication Policies


Statement by Keeneland Regarding Uniform Medication Policies

In a year that our industry and all of our participants are enjoying incredible excitement in racing, medication issues continue to dominate discussions. It is evident that a collective resolution to medication issues is essential for racing to continue the momentum we are experiencing in this historic year.

With the lack of action among many state jurisdictions with regard to uniform medication policies, it is apparent that federal legislation is necessary to provide our industry with a level playing field across all borders as well as adequate testing measures to ensure the integrity of our sport. That is why Keeneland is proud to publicly support HR 3084 and become a member of the Coalition for Horse Racing Integrity.

Quotes from the $150,000 JPMorgan Chase Jessamine


Bill Mott (winning trainer of Harmonize)

On whether Harmonize is good enough to advance to the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf
“I think so. It’s nice to see that she’s versatile enough to come from back in the pack like she did. She struggled with ground early and once she got down the backside, she got a little better, a little better. When (jockey Junior Alvarado) turned for home, she turned on the after-burners and was good enough to run them down.
