Research and innovation is critical to enhancing the safety, care and welfare of Victorian thoroughbreds before, during and after racing.

To best meet the needs of our equine athletes, Racing Victoria has dedicated resources within its equine welfare, veterinary services and digital transformation teams that work alongside industry experts, governments and leading educational institutions to identify ideas and discovery that address our needs and transforms the practical application of learnings into new processes and products.

This is achieved by finding solutions to better understand the challenges we face, and adapting our knowledge to implement new ideas that further support and innovate the racing industry.

Racing Victoria’s commitment to research and innovation is helping improve the lives of every racehorse, and streamlining our integrity processes to benefit the racing industry. This further strengthens our vision to be recognised as setting the standard in equine welfare.
