Coady Photography

The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority's Integrity and Welfare Unit has launched anonymous whistleblower platforms that will allow Thoroughbred industry participants to submit tips about potential violations of its Anti-Doping and Medication Control Program. The text and email platforms are supported through a partnership with RealResponse, the leading provider of safe and secure reporting platform for athletes, teams, and organizations, while the telephone platform is supported by Ansafone.

“Our anonymous whistleblower platforms will empower concerned individuals to safely and securely alert HIWU to potential violations of the AMDC Program, including situations where the welfare of the horse or integrity of the sport may be compromised,” said Michelle Pujals, HIWU's general counsel. “We look forward to working with RealResponse, which has a proven track record in administering this type of technology, to facilitate the success of this key component of the ADMC Program.”

Individuals who would like to submit tips have the following contact options: phone line: (888) 714-4498; text line: (855) 901-8477; email: [email protected].
