California horse racing (TOC) backs equine innovation

Horse racing in the state has been under significant scrutiny in recent years but industry leaders have embraced sweeping reforms – the most recent of which sees Kildare-based Equine MediRecord (EMR) provide its revolutionary anti-doping and horse welfare software to Thoroughbred owners on the west coast …

This system allows for the full veterinary history of the horse to be recorded securely, ensuring the best possible horse welfare as well as aid with crucial anti-doping procedures.

“I was impressed with EMR’s system,” commented Executive Director of the California Horse Racing Board, Scott Chaney. “Equine medical records are digitized and recorded on a mobile and web-based application used by trainers or their vets.”

Once records are entered into the system they cannot be altered, providing integrity and transparency for all concerned. The Thoroughbred Owners of California (TOC) have unanimously agreed to support the set-up and implementation of the system.
