Lexington, Ky. - 3/22/08 - The Thoroughbred racing industry will look for ways to attract and retain more regulatory veterinarians, improve track surfaces to reduce injuries and create a research and development plan for drug testing.

Those were among several objectives adopted at the second Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summit this week at Keeneland Association facilities in Lexington.

The complete list of objectives aims to address seven key issues impacting the health of horses and the careers of Thoroughbred racehorses.

The meeting of 62 members of the Thoroughbred breeding and raciing industry was sponsored by the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation and the Jockey Club. Panelists provided updates on strategic plans and actions that arose during the first summit in October 2006.
