A new funding source is available for research which has the potential to help horses thrive during their racing careers and beyond.

The new Racing WA Research Fund will support projects that enhance the health, welfare and safety of racehorses as well as those that assist horses to move on to lives of ongoing purpose and good health after racing.

We welcome applications from research projects which can provide transparent and dependable information to guide us and those who care for horses in making decisions to safeguard animal wellbeing.

Applications are open for legitimate research projects until 4pm on 5 May 2023. Further information is available by contacting the Animal Welfare team at animalwelfare@rwwa.com.au.
