Presentation Transcript

  1. Tracking Injuries On Track Status of the development of a standardized injury reporting system at North American Thoroughbred racetracks Mary C. Scollay-Ward, DVM Senior Association Veterinarian Calder Race Course / Gulfstream Park

  2. Objectives • Quanitate • Racetrack injuries • Type • Frequency • Outcome • Identify • Markers for Horses at Increased Risk • Improve efficiency of pre-race inspections • Trainer accountability • Improve • Injury management and prevention

  3. Case Criteria(employed by reporting regulatory veterinarians) : Horses observed to be lame on the racetrack before, during and immediately following a race Horses observed to be lame in Detention Barn post-race Horses scratched for unsoundness at pre-race exam

  4. Horse identification (optional) Horse-specific information Injury-specific information

  5. 17 07 034 Confidential racetrack code Year Individual case

  6. If horse identification can be reported, information is retrieved from Jockey Club Information database—form completion abbreviated

  7. Price factor = Claiming price Bottom claiming price Example: Claiming price of injured horse is $25,000. Bottom claiming price in that category at track is $5,000. Price factor = 5.0

  8. LF Fracture Distal Limb Ses-biax Comminuted LF Soft tissue Flexor tendon SDF/DDF Rupture Use of standardized keywords in describing injuries LF Joint Fetlock Disarticulation closed RF Other Grabbed 1/4

  9. Triage Scoring 0 No lameness observed on track I Grade III or lower lameness; no presumptive diagnosis II >Grade III lameness; no presumptive diagnosis III Mild to moderate limb instability in 1 plane; closed injury IV Severe instability in 1 plane; closed injury V Limb instability in 2 or more planes / loss of column of support (open or closed); open: fracture / joint capsule / tendon sheath

  10. Prognosis and Outcome-- not always consistent

  11. Participating racetracks: Indiana Downs Hastings Park Hawthorne Racecourse Hoosier Park Hollywood Park Keeneland Lone Star Park Meadowlands Monmouth Park Penn National Philadelphia Park Prairie Meadows Saratoga Suffolk Downs Turfway Yavapai Downs Albuquerque Downs Arlington Park Aqueduct Belmont Park Beulah Park Calder Race Course Canterbury Downs Charlestown Races Churchill Downs Colonial Downs Delaware Park Ellis Park Emerald Downs Fonner Park Gulfstream Park

  12. Racing Injuries High profile events Training Injuries Low profile events Economic impact ? Relationship to racing injuries ?

  13. Injury Reporting by Practicing Veterinarians Case Selection Criteria: Horse which veterinarian advises to be withdrawn from training for 10 or more days due to musculoskeletal injury sustained racing or training Confidentiality/ Anonymity: Horse, trainer, veterinarian not identified

  14. Responsible Use of Information • National Statistics will be made public • Individual racetracks’ data will be returned to submitting veterinarian as spread sheet file

  15. Access to Data • Researchers desiring access to data will submit proposal to review panel

  16. 1 Year Goal • Increase number of participant racetracks • Generate composite statistics • Form advisory committee • Review reporting format • Identify research needs

  17. 2 Year Goal • Expansion of data analysis • Identification of markers for horses at increased risk

  18. 3 Year Goal • Confidential, on-line report submission with data automatically entered into database
