The Racing Appeals and Disciplinary (RAD) Board is an independent Board set up to hear and determine appeals from decisions of the stewards and to also hear and determine breaches of certain serious offences under the Rules of Racing.


Victorian Racing Tribunal

From 1 August 2019, the operation of the RAD Board will cease, except with respect to certain historical proceedings which commenced prior to 1 August and have not yet been finalised. Matters which previously would have been heard by the RAD Board will, from 1 August 2019, be heard by the Victorian Racing Tribunal (VRT), a body established under the Racing Act 1958 (Vic). The VRT will hear matters under the rules of racing of all three Victorian racing codes: thoroughbred, harness and greyhound.

For more information on the VRT, including access to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding its operation and powers, please refer to the VRT website.


Where can I access decisions of the VRT?

Historical decisions of the RAD Board will remain available on the Racing Victoria website. However, for copies of decisions issued by the VRT, please refer to the VRT website.
