Lisa Lazarus, CEO of the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority
After much buildup and speculation, the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority began enforcing its first set of guidelines earlier this month.
On this week’s episode of The Friday Show, bloodstock editor Joe Nevills and editor-in-chief Natalie Voss speak with HISA CEO Lisa Lazarus about the first days of HISA enforcement. The first round of HISA guidelines primarily concern registration of covered persons and horses, as well as various racetrack safety measures.
Lazarus discusses what went well over the first week, what items could be improved upon after being applied in a live setting, and she answers questions from Paulick Report readers.
Lazarus was named CEO of HISA in February. She established and leads the Equestrian Practice at Morgan Sports Law, where she provides counsel on health and safety issues and rule compliance in addition to representing athletes, owners and trainers in disputes before national and international governing bodies.
Her previous experience includes time with Fédération Equestre Internationale, the international governing body for equestrian sports, and the National Football League.
