Racing in Western Australia is a thriving community. At its heart are the wonderful canine and equine athletes that bring it to life.

More than 25,000 participants with a shared passion are actively involved in Western Australian racing. Training and caring for racing animals is no easy task – with early morning starts and long hours – it is a life that requires dedication and hard work.

Racing animals are the centre of our world and therefore RWWA is committed to ensuring they receive appropriate care during all stages of their racing careers, including both during racing and post-racing.

We respect and advocate for the animal athletes of the industry, with constantly evolving welfare standards and regulations to protect their wellbeing.

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