On Tuesday, Sept. 14, the Ohio State Racing Commission (OSRC) issued a statement regarding the transportation practice of shipping horses via cargo containers.

The OSRC statement appears below.

The Ohio State Racing Commission (OSRC) considers the safety of horses that race and train at Ohio racetracks its top priority. The Commission has serious concerns about the conditions that exist, and care provided to, horses that are shipped via cargo containers.

These conditions represent a significant risk to their health and welfare and as such, the OSRC believes this form of horse transportation is inhumane.

The OSRC is urging, in the strongest terms possible, that all tracks and training facilities within the state take immediate steps to ensure that horses are protected from this practice.
