Kentucky Horse Racing Commission

​The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission (KHRC) is an independent agency of state government charged with the responsibility of regulating the conduct of horse racing and pari-mutuel wagering on horse racing and related activities within the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  The KHRC is a leader in both the safety and integrity of the sport as well as the welfare of the horse. The KHRC's passion and commitment is evident in the adoption of steroid bans, riding crop rule, standardbred whip rule, higher standards for animal welfare, and amended regulations for licensing and racing associations.
