Ban on Horse Slaughter

Any owners or trainers stabled at Arlington International Racecourse (Arlington) found to have directly or indirectly sold a horse for slaughter will have his or her stalls permanently revoked from Arlington.  Arlington requires its horsemen to conduct due diligence on those buying horses and encourages them to support rescue and adoption efforts and to find humane ways of dealing with horses unable to continue racing.  All trainers and or owners will be required to state on all departure slips that "I hereby represent and warrant that no horse is being sent directly or indirectly to slaughter".
