RWWA's logo


The Western Australian racing industry plays an important economic and social role, enhancing both individual and community well-being. There is an average of more than two thoroughbred, harness or greyhound race meetings held each day in this state; providing employment and entertainment for Western Australians and visitors alike. Thoroughbred racing is the third highest attended sport in Western Australia behind AFL football and motor racing.

There are over 24,000 participants who are actively involved in the Western Australian racing industry who all share a common passion. Training and caring for racing animals is no easy task – with early morning starts and long hours – it is an industry that requires dedication and hard work.

Our racing animals are at the centrefold of our industry and therefore RWWA is committed to ensuring that they receive the appropriate amount of care during all stages of their racing careers, including both during racing and post-racing. 

If you have any concerns regarding the welfare of any racing animals in Western Australia please contact our Integrity Department on 9445 5565.
