Ohio racehorses have traditionally been identified by a lip tattoo or a brand. But many horse owners have opted to use electronic chips instead. But those chips are not officially recognized under the state’s racing rules.

The Ohio Racing Commission updated its rules to include electronic chips to identify race horses. In the meantime, Gov. Mike DeWine has issued an executive order. His spokesman Dan Tierney said it’s good for 120 days.
