Drug Free Sports International will establish testing and enforcement protocols.
The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority’s board of directors announced May 3 it had secured a contract with an agency to handle the testing, investigative, and enforcement responsibilities for the national regulatory program it is building for horse racing.
Drug Free Sport International was selected to build HISA’s independent Anti-Doping and Medication Control enforcement agency.
Drug Free Sport has existing drug testing and enforcement partnerships with leading sports organizations, including the National Football League, NCAA, National Basketball Association, Ladies Professional Golf Association, PGA Tour, NASCAR, and Major League Baseball. The company will establish the Horseracing Integrity and Welfare Unit, which will be led by a five- member advisory council, to serve as the new ADMC enforcement agency for Thoroughbred racing.
