Oregon Racing Commission EIA (Coggins) Policy

ALL horses entering into the grounds of a fair meet race track in Oregon are required to have a valid negative Coggins within 6 months of entering the fairgrounds. For horses racing at the meet, the racing secretary shall be in charge of compliance and shall verify and photocopy the ORIGINAL color owner NCR Coggins and record the data with InCompass when possible. Horses not racing but on the grounds will be required to produce the same documentation as horses racing at the meet. Stewards, Investigators, Association representatives, and the State Veterinarian will walk shed rows and review and collect the papers to ensure compliance with the policy.
