Racing Victoria’s Department of Equine Welfare and Veterinary Services aims to foster a racing culture in which the safety and welfare of the thoroughbred racehorse is paramount to all participants.
Racing Victoria is committed to developing world-leading equine welfare practices. Horses are the centrepiece of our industry and we are committed to ensuring that they are afforded the appropriate care and attention both during and after their racing life.
At all stages during training and racing, the welfare of the horse should be the primary consideration. Discover more here.
