Medical records required for horses claimed, sold or transferred

The Maryland Racing Commission earlier amended regulations that now require the medical record of any horse that is claimed, sold or transferred be provided to the new owner with seven days of the claim, sale or transfer.

In order to comply with the regulation, a “Horse Health Record” form must be completed and submitted to MRC Equine Welfare and Medical Director Dr. Libby Daniel and Lasix Clerk Melanie Martin. The form asks for information such as immunization dates, joint therapy and radiographs.

The form is available at this link to the MRC website.
