The Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency (CPMA)

The Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency (CPMA) has issued a memorandum reminding the Canadian horse racing industry that the changes announced last month to the Elimination Guidelines (EG) came into effect today (Monday, April 3).

The CPMA website and PDF version of Elimination Guidelines have been updated. The urine and blood testing protocols have also been adjusted accordingly.

All EGs remain the same except for those described in the Notice to Industry published last month.

Only the EGs currently published on the CPMA’s website should be relied on when making treatment decisions for a racehorse.

The CPMA strongly recommends that you consult your veterinarian on any decision to administer supplements or medications to a horse.

If you have any questions, please contact the CPMA at 1-800-268-8835 or
