For 80+ years, ARCI works to protect horses and honest sport
The Association of Racing Commissioners International (ARCI) provides a mechanism for collective policy formation, exchange of information, research, education and training, integrity advocacy, and the development of reforms and services designed to assist its members protect horses and ensure honest sport.
ARCI member agencies conduct background investigations and license the participants in professional racing in order to safeguard the public interest. Anti-doping programs operated by member agencies are the most aggressive in professional sport – testing for more substances at deeper levels. Members officiate the contests and sanction those who violate rules. Member agencies adjudicate appeals and seasoned prosecutors are rarely overturned when challenged in court. The ARCI collaborates with racing industry organizations who share our common goal of ensuring safe horses and integrity in sport.
