The Horseracing Integrity and Welfare Unit, which was established by Drug Free Sport International to administer the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority’s Anti-Doping and Medication Control Program, announced Nov. 2 that it has formally launched its website at hiwu.org.
The current version of the website features a section dedicated to educational resources about the components of the ADMC Program. The content, which will include bilingual materials, will increase in the weeks and months ahead to assist all stakeholders in the Thoroughbred industry in advance of the ADMC Program’s implementation Jan. 1, 2023, and beyond.
Future website updates will introduce a Prohibited Substances database as a reference tool and a searchable list of sanctions imposed on covered persons or covered horses for ADMC Program violations.
Viewers will also find information about HIWU’s team and responsibilities as the enforcement agency for the ADMC Program, answers to frequently asked questions about HIWU, recent HIWU news, and a link to the full ADMC Program regulations submitted for approval to the Federal Trade Commission.
“Our goal is for the HIWU website to serve as a comprehensive and dynamic resource for the Thoroughbred industry so that everyone feels prepared for the ADMC Program, and we are excited for its further expansion,” said Ben Mosier, Executive Director of HIWU.
In addition to the website, interested parties can now keep up with HIWU via Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Questions may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
