|Statement from The Jockey Club on HISA’s Selection of Drug Free Sport International as Partner
The Jockey Club applauds today’s announcement from the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA), which named Drug Free Sport International (DFS) as the organization to develop HISA’s Anti-Doping and Medication Control enforcement agency. DFS has an impressive track record in handling drug testing management in a range of sports, and its partnership with HISA is another critical step toward creating a gold standard of integrity and welfare in Thoroughbred racing. The Jockey Club has believed for years that reforms in safety, integrity, and welfare are necessary for the sustainability of our sport. We look forward to following the progress of DFS and supporting the efforts of DFS and HISA with any resources we can provide.
