The Jockey Club supports the efforts of the RMTC to bring national uniformity to the regulatory landscape through funding of suitable research projects.

Racing Officials Accreditation Program

The Racing Officials Accreditation Program (ROAP) was launched in 2006 by the University of Arizona Race Track Industry Program and the University of Louisville Equine Industry Program to redefine and expand the former Stewards and Judges Accreditation Committee. The Jockey Club supports the efforts of ROAP, which accredits and provides continuing education to all racing officials, stewards and judges in the horse racing industry. ROAP enhances the image and upholds the integrity of horse racing at all levels.


The Jockey Club, joined by many others in the sport, was a long­ time supporter of the legislation that led to passage of the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act (HISA), which passed overwhelmingly in both houses of Congress and was signed into law by President Trump in December 2020. The Jockey Club has since worked to create tools to improve the reporting that industry professionals need to be compliant with the independent Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority
