Information Bulletin No.17

September 20, 2016 – On September 16, 2016, the Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency (CPMA) released a Memorandum to Provincial Regulatory Bodies, Canadian Horse Racing Associations, and Horse Persons Groups.

“In order to maintain an effective equine drug control program, the Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency (CPMA) has revised the list of items allowed into the retention area. Please note that all items permitted into the retention area must leave with the horse.”

A copy of this CPMA memo is attached to this bulletin.

The AGCO issues this Information Bulletin as a service. AGCO licensees are expected to know the Rules of Racing, closely review all memos from the CPMA, and keep up to date on the Schedule of Prohibited Drugs.
