The third biennial Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summit will be June 28-29 at the Keeneland Sales Pavilion.
"Previous summits have been the catalyst for a number of initiatives that have improved the safety and integrity of the sport," said Ed Bowen, president of the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation.
Bowen expects the Keeneland summit again to "yield additional measures that enhance the safety of horse and rider," he said.
Accomplishments of past summits include the creation of the Equine Injury Database, the launch of a five-part Drug Testing Initiative and the founding of the Racing Surfaces Testing Laboratory.
The June 28 sessions will be open to the public beginning at 8 a.m., with one additional public session on June 29. For the first time Keeneland will offer a live video feed of the summit's open sessions on its Web site, www.keeneland.com
