Statement from the National Thoroughbred Racing Association on HBO Real Sports Segment on Horse Racing


“Once again, HBO’s Real Sports presented a slanted, distorted, and inaccurate view of horse racing without acknowledging the important progress our entire industry is making with respect to safety, welfare and aftercare. Today, the strongest push for a higher degree of safety and integrity is actually coming from within the industry, which through its actions is working every day to provide a safer environment for our equine and human athletes. The real facts about horse racing have been shared with HBO directly.”
