Racing Free Announces Program Changes

GUTHRIE, Okla.,- The Racing Free team would like to announce the starting of a new chapter in their goal to eliminate performance-enhancing drugs in horse racing and ensure a positive future for the sport. “It’s incredible to see how much Racing Free has done for horsemen across the country. We have traveled all around spreading a positive message about the work that our racing organizations are doing to clean up the sport, and we are looking forward to this new chapter.” stated Racing Free Co-Founder Micah McKinney. Since the program’s inaugural season in 2012, over 700 horses have been enrolled into the Racing Free Incentive Program and racetracks including Ruidoso Downs, Remington Park, Indiana Grand Racing and North Dakota Horse Park stepped up to publicly support the Racing Free mission.

After two years of promoting horsemen who support a level playing field, the team has decided to stop the Incentive Programs. “We have created a great following and reputation and are ready to go back to the main mission of the program by focusing energy and sponsorship monies on assisting organizations with improvements such as track security and advanced testing procedures. The Incentive Programs were about giving horsemen a voice; letting them have more control over the welfare of their horses and join an alliance of horsemen who have the best interest of the horse in mind. We are by no means leaving this effort, simply switching gears for a new way to think outside the box on tackling the drug front. I think we were successful thus far and will continue to be so,” stated McKinney. The team is currently meeting with sponsors and industry leaders to develop a plan of action.

Racing Free would like to thank the thousands of horsemen and over 25 industry sponsors who support the organization. Starting today, September 15th, Racing Free will no longer be accepting memberships for the Racing Free Incentive or Breeders Incentive Program. Horses currently enrolled in both programs will still be eligible for the monetary rewards until their individual membership has expired. The Racing Free team encourages all horsemen to follow the Racing Free website, Facebook, Twitter, and to continually check with the AQHA, RMTC, ARCI, and racetracks. Together, we will do really great things for this sport.
