The ARCI (RCI) is the only umbrella organization of the official governing rule making bodies for professional horse and greyhound racing. ARCI sets standards for racing regulation, medication policy, drug testing laboratories, totalizator systems, racetrack operation and security, and off-track wagering entities. ARCI members are the only independent entities recognized to license, enforce, and adjudicate matters pertaining to racing.
Lexington, KY - The revisions to its racing regulatory standards that were adopted by the Association of Racing Commissioners International (ARCI) at its meeting last month in New Orleans have now been formally posted.
ARCI Model Rules serve as a guide to jurisdictions in the making of racing regulatory policy.

This means that when the ARCI adopts a rule, it automatically becomes the applicable policy in jurisdictions that have done that.
