Horsemen in Maryland are reminded to regularly use the “In Today” stall signs that indicate whether a horse is entered to race on a given day.
Maryland Jockey Club Director of Racing Development Georganne Hale Aug. 22 said the signs were handed out to trainers a while ago for identification purposes. Use of the signs stemmed from broader national industry discussions about integrity-related issues.
“The signs are supposed to be put on a stall on race day,” Hale said, “and one reason is because they help the Lasix vets identify horses racing that day.”
Horsemen are instructed to stop in the MTHA racetrack office for additional signs.
The Maryland circuit moves to the Maryland State Fair at Timonium for a seven-day meet that begins Aug. 24 and concludes Labor Day, Sept. 3.
