Should we go to a rating system for claiming races? Sounds like a good idea to keep horses from changing barns so often and decrease their risk of injury?

Safety measures , for horses, put into place at Churchill ( Keeneland will too) seem to be holding well. But in reading this, I believe it’s really meant for horses stabled there and not those coming for stakes races?

Mid Atlantic tracks see decrease in fatalities at their tracks, now we need to see that across the nation and with a continued downward trend in those numbers!
