2022 NTRA Racehorse Managers Conference.

Comprehensive, science-based discussions and demonstrations on maintaining safe racing, training and event surfaces, along with an explanation of how to participate in the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA) racing surface regulations and the processes for HISA implementation and reporting, highlight the NTRA Racecourse Managers’ Conference and Workshop to be held March 6-8, 2022 at South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa in Las Vegas.

The Racecourse Managers’ Conference and Workshop, which will be offered free to all registered attendees, will begin on Sunday, March 6 with an opening reception in South Point’s Equestrian Center and will be followed by a day and a half of discussions and demonstrations.

The full agenda will be announced in January, but confirmed speakers and topics include:

  • Dennis Moore, Racetrack Consultant and Superintendent will demonstrate the use of lasers for grade measurements and how to check grades on horse racing and arena surfaces;
  • The Equine Sports Turfgrass Alliance, a group of university and industry professionals developing education and research for the equine sports turfgrass industry, will host a session on the development of testing methods for surface testing of cross-country courses in British and North American Eventing;
  • Glen Kozak, Senior Vice President of the New York Racing Association (NYRA), will lead a panel that discusses the HISA Surfaces Regulations and the process for implementation and reporting;
  • Oliver Hoberg, Footing Expert for the Fédération Equestre Internationale, the international governing body for equestrian sports, and Lars Roepstorff from the Swedish University of Agriculture, a veterinarian and equine surgeon and one of the world’s leading experts on equine footing surfaces, will discuss the use of FEI criteria and practical implications for FEI 5* events and Olympic equestrian facilities;
  • Kaleb Dempsey, Materials Engineer at Racing Surfaces Testing Laboratory (RSTL), will demonstrate the integrated track tester which can measure moisture and cushion depth on dirt tracks as well as monitor the condition of turf tracks; and
  • Mackenzie Rockefeller, Manager at Racing Surfaces Testing Laboratory, will demonstrate the new Maintenance Quality System (MQS) database developed by The Jockey Club which will allow reporting for the HISA data to be produced automatically.
