OwnerView announced today that it has added a panel to its Virtual Owner Conference series with representatives from the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA) to assist owners with the registration process for HISA. The Zoom webinar will be held Thursday, June 16, at 1 pm and will last about 60 minutes. Participating in the webinar from HISA will be Lisa Lazarus, chief executive officer; Steve Keech, technology director; Ann McGovern, director of Racetrack Safety; and John Roach, general counsel. The session will include time to submit questions to the HISA team.
The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act, which was signed into law in Dec. 2020, established HISA as an independent agency to draft and enforce uniform safety and integrity rules in Thoroughbred racing in the United States. The bill goes into effect July 1, and owners are among the list of individuals who must register with HISA as a covered person prior to this date. Interested individuals can sign up for the virtual conference at ownerview.com/event/conference or send an email to Gary Falter, [email protected]. The webinar will be recorded and made available on the OwnerView YouTube channel for owners that cannot attend the live session.
