Safety & Integrity Alliance

The health and safety of our human and equine athletes and the integrity of our sport are horseracing’s top priorities. The Safety & Integrity Alliance is horse racing’s key mechanisms for implementation of important safety and integrity initiatives on a uniform basis nationwide.

Alliance racetrack accreditation standards cover six broad areas:

  • injury reporting and prevention
  • creating a safer racing and training environment
  • uniform medication, testing and penalties
  • safety and health of jockeys
  • aftercare and transition of retired racehorses
  • wagering security

2017 Racetrack Safety & Integrity Code of Standards

The NTRA Safety and Integrity Alliance Code of Standards lists all standards with which accredited racing facilities must comply. Each year’s Code contains new standards and protocols, thereby continuously raising the bar for accreditation, compliance and excellence in racing.
