23rd International Conference of Racing Analysts and Veterinarians

The International Conference of Racing Analysts and Veterinarians (ICRAV) is a biennial conference for analysts, veterinarians and administrators associated with the racing industry. Through this conference, participants share knowledge and address veterinary, scientific, rules and welfare issues in the industry to achieve the common goals of maintaining the integrity of racing and ensuring the welfare of the animal athletes.

23rd ICRAV
ICRAV, first held in 1976 in Newmarket, UK, is conducted by two non-profit making organisations, the Association of Official Racing Chemists (AORC) and the International Group of Specialist Racing Veterinarians (IGSRV), whose charters are to provide scientific support to the world’s racing authorities. To date, twenty-two ICRAVs have been held worldwide. They have fostered scientific advances in doping control and supported the continuous improvement in animal welfare.

Given the continued global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Organising Committee of the 23rd ICRAV has decided to further postpone the conference to September 2023. Details of the rescheduled conference, including the conference venue will be announced in due course. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and we look forward to greeting you in Hong Kong soon.
