The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) Safety & Integrity Alliance and the Racing Medication Testing Consortium (RMTC) have announced a new two-day continuing education (CE) conference for regulatory and official racetrack veterinarians.

The inaugural Regulatory/Official Veterinary CE— set for June 25-26 at Keeneland Race Course, in Lexington, Kentucky, preceding the Grayson-Jockey Club Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summit (WSS) on June 27—will cover topics related to pre-race examinations, on-track protocols, test barn best practices, data and documentation, technology resources, and biosecurity.

“Regulatory veterinarians hold a unique position in the protection of the health and welfare of the horse,” said Dionne Benson, DVM, executive director and chief operating officer of the RMTC. “The goal of this CE is to provide training directly related to their mission.”

The agenda was developed by Benson and NTRA Safety & Integrity Alliance Executive Director Steve Koch, MS, in collaboration with a committee of equine medical directors and racetrack veterinarians. Approval for veterinary CE credits is anticipated in advance of the conference
