Intra Articular Corticosteroid Injections
New for the 2023-2024 race season Oaklawn is requiring all Intra Articular Corticosteroid Injections performed by a veterinarian to adhere to the following procedures.
All Intra Articular Corticosteroid injections which are prescribed and to be administered by a veterinarian in the barn area the trainer / Veterinarian must contact Beverly Fowler, Integrity Officer, and provide the day and time the injection is to be administered. The Integrity Officer or their designee must be present to observe the administration of the injection. The Vet and Integrity Officer or their designee must fill out and sign the Intra Articular Corticosteroid Injection form. A copy of the form will be provided to the veterinarian administering the injection, Integrity Officer or their designee and the State Veterinarian.
In a measure to minimize the inconvenience of this policy, Oaklawn has secured and will offer the Summer Bird barn to those trainers / veterinarians wanting to have Intra Articular Corticosteroid injections performed in a private surrounding, this is completely voluntary. Oaklawn will pay (up to $250) for the first 100 Intra Articular Corticosteroid Injections performed in the Summer Bird barn for the 2023-2024 race season. We have added cameras to each stall in the Summer Bird barn for security purposes. To schedule an appointment for these injections please call Beverly Fowler (501-762-3864).
