HISA Registration Webinar Available on YouTube

HISA registration webinar now available on OwnerView YouTube page.

 

Please be advised that OwnerView’s webinar on registration with the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA), held Thursday, June 16, as part of the virtual Thoroughbred Owner Conference series, is now available for viewing on OwnerView’s YouTube page at bit.ly/ownerviewpage. The webinar was moderated by TVG Analyst Caton Bredar and included Lisa Lazarus, chief executive officer of HISA, and Steve Keech, technology director for HISA.

OwnerView is a joint effort spearheaded by The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association to encourage ownership of Thoroughbreds and provide accurate information on aspects of ownership such as trainers, public racing syndicates, the process of purchasing and owning a Thoroughbred, racehorse retirement, and owner licensing.

The need for a central resource to encourage Thoroughbred ownership was identified in the comprehensive economic study of the sport that was commissioned by The Jockey Club and conducted by McKinsey & Company in 2011. The OwnerView site was launched in May 2012.

OwnerView to host Instructional Webinar on Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority Registration

OwnerView announced today that it has added a panel to its Virtual Owner Conference series with representatives from the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA) to assist owners with the registration process for HISA.

 

The Zoom webinar will be held on Thursday, June 16, at 1 p.m. ET and last about 60 minutes. Participating in the webinar from HISA will be Lisa Lazarus, chief executive officer; Steve Keech, technology director; Ann McGovern, director of Racetrack Safety; and John Roach, general counsel. The session will include time to submit questions to the HISA team.

 

The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act, which was signed into law in December 2020, established HISA as an independent agency to draft and enforce uniform safety and integrity rules in Thoroughbred racing in the United States. The bill goes into effect on July 1, and owners are among the list of individuals who must register with HISA as a covered person prior to this date.

 

“The passage of the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act was an important step forward for Thoroughbred racing, and this webinar will enable owners to engage directly with HISA to learn about registration and answer any questions they may have,” said Gary Falter, project manager for OwnerView.

 

Interested individuals can sign up for the virtual conference at ownerview.com/event/conference or send an email to Gary Falter, gfalter@jockeyclub.com. The webinar will be recorded and made available on the OwnerView YouTube channel for owners that cannot attend the live session.
