The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA) appointed one farrier to its 19-member Horseman’s Advisory Group, the federal agency announced Monday.

Tom Trosin, CJF, of Oklahoma City, Okla., will be the group’s farrier representative. The past president of the American Farrier’s Association is a second-generation farrier and has been a licensed plater in California and Oklahoma.

Trosin, who was one of more than 250 applicants, will join the group in meeting monthly to provide insight to HISA’s executive team and standing committees on racetrack safety and anti-doping and medication control regulations. Each member will serve 1- or 2-year terms “to stagger changes in the composition of the group and to maximize the opportunity for participation across the industry in the coming years.”

“I want to thank everyone across the horseracing community who expressed interest in joining the Horsemen’s Advisory Group,” says Lisa Lazarus, HISA CEO. “I am particularly grateful to its distinguished and highly qualified new members who have agreed to collaborate with us on an ongoing basis. I know that HISA will benefit immensely from this group’s extensive, hands-on experience in Thoroughbred racing as we continue to work with all industry stakeholders to advance the safety and integrity of our sport.”
