In response to suggestions made during a recent meeting on racing surfaces, stakeholders have retooled an online Injury Reporting Form designed to provide the Maryland Racing Commission and Maryland Jockey Club with real-time data with the goal of rapidly responding to track issues when they crop up.
Attending veterinarians and trainers are being asked to submit the online form for horses that are injured during training and racing at Laurel, Pimlico Race Course and the Maryland State Fair at Timonium. Similar to information compiled in 2020 on bleeding after race-day Lasix was banned for 2-year-olds racing in Maryland, the data will be strictly confidential and monitored by the MRC.
The Injury Reporting Form is available at http://mdhorsemen.com/report

Organizers of the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred Championships Series (MATCH) this year began putting each horse’s name and the MATCH logo on the saddle towels for all series stakes.
