Posted: Dec. 8, 2020

At its meeting Dec. 4, the Association of Racing Commissioners International Board of Directors added 18 substance classifications and recommended penalties to the ARCI Uniform Classification document that is the basis for the anti-doping and medication control program for horseracing regulatory authorities.

The substances were added upon the recommendation of the Racing Medication and Testing Consortium Scientific Advisory Committee with the concurrence of the ARCI Scientific Advisory Group. The list of the new substance classifications is available here.

A new version of the Uniform Classification Guidelines for Foreign Substances and Recommended Penalties that will contain the 18 additions will be published shortly on the ARCI website along with recent changes to the Model Rules of Racing.
