GUIDELINES FOR WITHDRAWAL TIMES FOR THERAPEUTIC MEDICATIONS NOW AVAILABLE ON RMTC WEBSITE

The Racing Medication & Testing Consortium has completed a section of its website (www.rmtcnet.com) that enables licensed horsemen to look up guidelines for withdrawal times for approximately 75 therapeutic medications identified by the RMTC Veterinary Advisory Committee.

The guidelines are available for 18 states and Canada. Information from other states will be added to the site as it becomes available.

Withdrawal guidelines are available to licensed horsemen who submit their name and indicate the type of racing license they hold and the jurisdiction where they race. They can search for guidelines by medication or by jurisdiction.

The RMTC consists of 23 racing industry stakeholders and organizations that represent Thoroughbred, Standardbred and American Quarter Horse racing. The organization works to develop, promote and coordinate, at the national level, policies, research, and educational programs that seek to ensure the fairness and integrity of racing, the health and welfare of racehorses and participants, and protect the interests of the betting public.

For additional information, visit the RMTC website at www.rmtcnet.com.
