A message from Tom Rooney, President and CEO of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association:

Welcome. We want to provide you with information, updates, and resources focused on Thoroughbred racing’s ongoing commitment to keep our athletes – both equine and human – as safe as we can. We owe them nothing less.

We know you have questions and concerns about the steps the industry is taking to create the safest environment possible for racing and training. We hope the materials you find here will help answer these questions and address those concerns. We will be updating this site regularly as new information becomes available.

Thoroughbred racing in the US has made steady, substantial progress in equine safety over the last few years. While that progress is encouraging, everyone in the sport knows we need to do more. And, what we have learned from that recent progress is a blueprint for making the sport even safer in the future.
