Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA) advises that as of 11.59pm, Monday 10 August, the following biosecurity measures will apply to the transfer of all horses travelling from interstate:

  • Any horse travelling into WA from interstate must go to a non-licensed property for a minimum of 24 hours and cannot proceed directly to any licensed property.
  • Following this the horse can be floated to a licensed racing premise. Under no circumstance should the person who floated the horse into WA be directly involved in the transfer of the horse to a licensed racing premises.
  • Any equipment or other items that have travelled with the horse should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to entry to the licensed premises.

RWWA would once again like to thank all owners, industry participants and race clubs for their understanding and patience as we have navigated our way through the COVID-19 pandemic.
