I would like to thank LONGINES, our Official Partner, for their long term support
In 1961, the Horseracing Authorities of the United States of America, France, Great Britain and Ireland decided to coordinate their action in order to protect the integrity of horseraces and keep their basic aim, which is the organization of competitions to select the best horses in order to improve the quality of breeding.
In 1967, they created the International Conference held in Paris every year which brings the main Racing Authorities in the world together.
To give an official shape to these efforts, they founded in 1993 the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities which amalgamates around sixty members.
Their main objectives are:
The Federation organizes every year the International Conference which updates the International Agreement on Breeding, Racing and Wagering endorsed by the Conference in 1974.
The Federation publishes the main statistics of each member-country
concerning breeding, racing and betting.
