Statement from James L. Gagliano on the Federal Courtís Upholding of HISA

The Jockey Club congratulates the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority and its counsel on the Federal Texas District Court’s finding that the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act of 2020 is indeed constitutional.

For those long supporting the passage and implementation of the Act, this is a result we have long anticipated. To HISA Chairman Charlie Scheeler, CEO Lisa Lazarus, and the entire HISA team and its counsel, we express our gratitude for your continued dedication to the cause of equine safety and integrity in our sport. We look forward to HISA beginning the first prong of its programs to enhance our sport on July 1.
