Statement from Ogden Mills Phipps, Chairman of The Jockey Club

“The Jockey Club heartily endorses the American Graded Stakes Committee’s recent decision to implement a drug-testing protocol designed by TOBA for all graded stakes races next year as a condition of grade eligibility. Establishing a drug-testing standard in this country is of vital importance and we encourage other individuals and organizations who have the health and welfare of the industry at heart to embrace and support this initiative.”
