Racing Commissioners International
(ARCI)

Mark Lamberth, Chair

Edward J. Martin, President

Welcome to RCI.

 

RCI is the only umbrella organization of the officially sanctioned governing rulemaking bodies for professional horse and greyhound racing.

 

RCI sets standards for racing regulation, medication policy, drug testing laboratories, totalizator systems, racetrack operation and security, and off-track wagering entities.

 

RCI members are the only independent entities recognized to license, enforce, and adjudicate matters pertaining to racing.

 

 

NOTICE and REQUEST FOR COMMENTS:

 

The Drug Testing Standards and Practices Committee  is considering proposed language to create an "EXCESSIVE ADMINISTRATION RULE", creating a legal construct where substance overages in or out of competition indicative of a departure from normal veterinary care would need to be justified by those responsible who would need to prove that the administration was not harmful to the horse or affect performance.

 

Please download a copy of the proposed rule and follow instructions on how to register a comment.
