|Nearly 1,500 tune in to Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summit VI|
Almost 1,500 individuals from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, France, Sweden, and Spain watched a live stream of the sixth Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summit that was available on grayson-jockeyclub.org. In addition to online viewership, the summit, held on Wednesday, July 8, at the Keeneland sales pavilion in Lexington, Ky., attracted approximately 200 in-person attendees.
Like the five previous summits, held in October 2006, March 2008, June 2010, October 2012 and July 2014, this summit was underwritten and coordinated by The Jockey Club and Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation and hosted by Keeneland Association. This year’s summit emphasized racetrack surfaces, equine and jockey injury databases, continuing education and post-mortem programs.
A video replay of the summit, along with presentations, is now available at grayson-jockeyclub.org/WelfareSafety/default.asp?section=48.
