Changing the conversation about horse racing to protect its future.

America’s horse racing industry is in perception crisis. 

As the number of Americans who regard horse racing negatively increases, its future is under threat. 

That’s why Light Up Racing was born.

We want to empower participants with the knowledge and confidence to engage in meaningful conversations with the concerned public and external media, and provide the information needed to make informed decisions that prioritize equine safety. 

By fostering industry unity, we will actively work towards driving positive change and pushing for best practice adoption.
