Horseracing Integrity Act – Join 165+ Bipartisan Cosponsors

As the Co-Chairmen of the Congressional Horse Caucus, we invite you to cosponsor H.R. 1754, the Horseracing Integrity Act.  The legislation authorizes the creation of an independent oversight body, known as the Horseracing Anti-Doping Authority (HADA) responsible
for creating and enforcing a national anti-doping program for the entire horseracing industry, including Thoroughbred, Standardbred and Quarter Horse racing, to ensure fair and safe competition across the thirty-eight state-based racing jurisdictions. It will
