Lexington, KY - Dr. Scot Waterman, executive director of the Racing Medication and Testing Consortium (RMTC), will be the online guest on Thursday, April 10, at noon ET for this week's edition of BloodHorse.com "Talkin' Horses" www.BloodHorse.com/TalkinHorses sponsored by TrueNicks.com. After spending eight years as a private small animal practitioner, Dr. Waterman redirected his career, graduating with honors from the University of Arizona Race Track Industry Program in May 2001. While completing his final semester, he began working for the National Thoroughbred Racing Association's Racing Integrity and Drug Testing Task Force.


The mission of the RMTC, as stated on its Web site, is: Striving to develop, promote and coordinate, at the national level, policies, research and educational programs that seek to ensure the fairness and integrity of racing and the health and welfare of racehorses and participants, and to protect the interests of the racing public.


Dr. Waterman co-authored the task force's Supertest Report, which was released in May 2002. The purpose of the Supertest project was to determine what drugs are in use and to improve drug-testing standards through a national survey of samples. Early in 2002, he worked to facilitate the development of the Racing Medication and Testing Consortium and February 2003 was named the organization's first executive director. He was awarded the North American Pari-Mutuel Regulators Association's Winner's Circle Award in April 2004 and received the John K. Goodman Alumni Award from the Arizona Race Track Industry Program in December 2005.


Dr. Waterman was born in Milton, Florida. He lives in Lexington with his wife, Amy. He is also involved in the Thoroughbred industry as an owner and as a breeder.
