Recognizing a potential conflict of interest in the Life At Ten investigation as it pertains to the role stewards played, the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission will be assisted by the Office of the Inspector General in the Kentucky Transportation Department.

“The commission wanted an external authority to handle that aspect of the investigation in order to eliminate any appearance of impropriety on the part of the commission,” KHRC executive director Lisa Underwood said to the Blood-Horse via an email message. “The director of security reports to the stewards, and it would not have been appropriate for him to be in charge of that portion of the investigation.”
