NTRA Statement on Suspension Against First Disqualified Player from the NTRA National Horseplayers Championship

NTRA NHC logoLEXINGTON, KY, February 8, 2022: The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) announced today that the player disqualified from the 2022 National Horseplayers Championship (NHC) will be suspended from the NHC and NHC Tour for a period of two years. At the end of the two-year suspension, the player may request to the NTRA to be reinstated to the NHC Tour.

The suspension was issued by the NTRA following discussions and a recommendation by the NHC Players’ Committee, a group of NHC players who act as a sounding board on NHC policy and rule matters. The suspension covers the 2022 and 2023 NHC Tour seasons and the 2023 and 2024 NHCs.

“Maintaining the integrity of the NHC is of the utmost importance,” said NTRA President and CEO Tom Rooney. “We look forward to making the 2022 NHC Tour and the 2023 NHC the best ever.”
