  • Note: This info may be updated any day of the week. Updates will typically be made between 12-5 p.m. ET.

  • Final Decisions of HIWU, the Arbitral Body, and the Internal Adjudication Panel are subject to review by a federal Administrative Law Judge under 15 U.S.C. 3058, and such review must be requested within 30 days of notice to the Covered Person.

  • All final decisions are subject to review by a federal Administrative Law Judge if the Covered Person requests the review within 30 days.


*As a result of proposed changes to the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority’s (HISA) rules that were submitted by HISA to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Horseracing Integrity & Welfare Unit (HIWU) has elected to stay all pending Anti-Doping and Medication Control (ADMC) Program cases whose potential periods of Ineligibility would be affected by these rule updates, including due to either the reduction of the applicable periods of Ineligibility or the removal of the automatic application of penalty points for certain violations.
