KY HBPA horsemen’s meeting on HISA June 20 at 10:30 am ET

HORSEMEN: Please plan to attend this Kentucky HBPA general horsemen’s meeting Monday, June 20 at 10:30 a.m. Eastern either in person on the Churchill Downs frontside or remotely via Zoom.
Providing updates, perspective and to answer your questions (where possible) will be Kentucky HBPA President Rick Hiles, National HBPA CEO Eric Hamelback, Kentucky HBPA Executive Director Marty Maline, National HBPA General Counsel Peter Ecabert and Lisa Lazarus, CEO of the Horseracing Integrity & Safety Authority (HISA).

The meeting will be on Churchill Downs’ frontside in the Aristides Room on the second floor of the clubhouse. There will be easy parking right outside the Paddock entrance. Go through the paddock entrance and take the escalator (by the gift shop) up to the second floor, with the Aristides Room to your right. For Churchill-based horsemen, another option is to drive through the infield tunnels and park in concourse near the paddock. (Golf carts are appreciated because of space.)

Because this is a horsemen’s meeting and for time considerations, only horsemen (including veterinarians and jockeys at the discretion of meeting organizers) will be allowed to ask questions. Horsemen onsite will be able to orally ask questions. Those participating via Zoom can ask questions in the “chat” function, by submitting a question through the registration page or emailing [email protected]. In-person attendees are welcome to submit questions in advance as well.
