RMTC Prepares Online Halter Auction To Benefit Tactical Research

Beginning November 23 and ending November 30, the Racing Medication and Testing Consortium (RMTC), an industry 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, will auction off halters of famous broodmares, racing and stallion stars on its eBay page.

All proceeds from the auction will go toward the RMTC's grant program to fund critical tactical research into the detection and identification of illicit substances.

In addition to a halter auction held in 2017, the RMTC has pursued contributions from other industry groups and individuals to match funds provided by the RMTC. So far, The Jockey Club, Jockeys' Guild and American Quarter Horse Association have made donations toward studies funded through this program.

The RMTC's Scientific Advisory Committee has received several research proposals and plans to review several more before a decision is made on which studies will ultimately be funded for 2019-2020. Areas of special interest include bisphosphonates in horses in racing and race training, performance-enhancing or performance-modifying substances, and emerging substances with potential health, welfare and/or integrity hazards.

“We are excited to get this grant program underway,” said RMTC Executive Director Dr. Dionne Benson. “This initiative will enable the industry to make significant advances in targeting emerging threats and developing new techniques to test for them – both of which are essential to effectively regulating our sport. The studies funded through these grants will be critical to protecting the integrity of horse racing and the welfare of our athletes.”

Racehorse halters offered in the auction include: Abel Tasman, Accelerate, Game Winner, Monomoy Girl, Wonder Gadot and Yoshida.

Halters of other racing standouts include: Havre de Grace, Lady Eli, Rachel Alexandra, Serena's Song, Silverbulletday and Songbird.

Active and retired stallion halters offered include: American Pharoah, Animal Kingdom, A.P. Indy, California Chrome, Ghostzapper, Gio Ponti, Go For Gin, Grindstone, Gun Runner, Justify, Mastery, More Than Ready, Mucho Macho Man, One Famous Eagle (QH), Tapit and Wicked Strong.

A halter from broodmare Bubbler – dam of Arrogate – will also be included.
