The effort to bring uniform standards to protect racehorses passed three major milestones this week, according to an Oct. 8 release from the Coalition for Horse Racing Integrity.
One hundred and fifty members of Congress have signed on as co-sponsors to the Horseracing Integrity Act, which is more than one third of the House of Representatives. Besides the strong Congressional support, 135 of the industry’s leading trainers support the bill. Additionally, more than 53,000 people have signed a petition from the Coalition for Horse Racing Integrity calling for passage of the bill.
