Policies

Racing Silks
Owners racing at Turfway Park must have their silks in the jockeys' quarters. Owners running more than twice in substitute (house) colors will automatically be charged a silk rental fee.

Grooms
All grooms in the paddock must be neatly dressed.

Pony Personnel and Safety Equipment
Personnel taking horses to the post in the post parade will be provided with saddle towels and are required to wear a white shirt and black helmet cover. All personnel on horseback must wear an approved safety helmet and vest at all times.

Tattoo Billing Procedure
All owners who have horses tattooed during the Turfway Park meet will be charged $68 per horse, payable at the time the horse is tattooed. If the horse is tattooed at Turfway Park on race day, the cost may be charged through the horsemen's bookkeeper. Any horse tattooed off the grounds (e.g., at Keeneland, The Thoroughbred Center, Churchill Downs, Highpoint, etc.) must be paid for at the time the horse is tattooed.
