OQHRA Updates

August 3, 2017The Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission has published revised threshold levels for Therapeutic Medications which will take effect in Oklahoma effective August 15, 2017.& The OHRC adopted the revisions so that Oklahoma levels will be largely consistent with the current ARCI Uniform Medication Guidelines already adopted by many other racing jurisdictions. There are both new medications listed that have not been on the Oklahoma Therapeutic schedule prior to the effective date, and many of the previously established levels have been significantly reduced as of the August 15th implementation date.  Attached is a chart with all of the medications listed on the revised Directive, and the information provided shows what the level is currently and what it has been changed to effective August 15th.  If you want to see the full text of the OHRC Directive you can find it on their website at www.ohrc.org or view PDF ↪HERE.  This is very important information for horsemen that are racing in Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission at it's May meeting adopted a new Threshold Directive for Permitted Medications.  There are very significant changes in the levels for many of the medications so please be sure that you familiarize yourself with the new medications and the changes in the levels are making the Oklahoma levels more consistent with the  Uniform Medication Levels adopted by many of the other racing states.   The OHRC will not implement the new levels until August 15 to allow for sufficient time to be sure all horsemen and veterinarians have been informed.  Please share this with other trainers, your veterinarian, etc.
