According to an opinion piece in the U.S. News & World Report, Rep. Ed Whitfield, a Kentucky Republican is working hard behind the scenes on Capital Hill to clean up the United States horse industry.

Whitfield's work and unnecessary track tragedies have accelerated the pace of reform to the point where it is probably now unstoppable.

The industry has sworn to reform itself in the past and has failed miserably.

Thoroughbred racing and other equine sports have produced a number of well-publicized recent tragedies, which is why Congress is finally starting to take reform seriously.
