Beginning July 1, 2022, when the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority's Racetrack Safety Program begins in Maryland and other racing states, pin- and freeze-firing will be a prohibited practice. Horses that do not have a record of such treatments prior to that time may be prohibited from racing—either for a period of time or permanently.
Track veterinarians will be inspecting horses designated as having been pin-fired or freeze-fired before July 1, 2022, and will make a note of the treatment in the The Jockey Club InCompass system, which will be available to HISA.
