Freddie Hudson, Executive Director of the U.S. Harness Racing Alumni Association, applauds Monday's announcement by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to introduce the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act in the Senate in September and to launch the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority. The legislation will add safety requirements to the reforms of the existing Horse Racing Integrity Act (HIA) and Rep. Andy Barr will be introducing a companion bill in the House of Representatives. The Authority will initiate national medication and testing standards and procedures for a more level playing field along with track safety, and the legislation will provide federal recognition and enforcement.

We hope as many others around the country that the harness racing stakeholders and Standardbreds will join these efforts to preserve horseracing." From the US Harness Racing Alumni Association
