RWWA Purchases Horse Welfare Property
Following the announcement of a wide-sweeping WA Racehorse Welfare Plan a week ago, Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA) has announced that it has purchased a new property ‘Touchstone Farm’ in North Dandalup. “The purchase forms part of a series of initiatives to improve rehoming and assist in the transition of retired racehorses to equestrian and pleasure pursuits, and provide support for their ongoing wellbeing,” said RWWA CEO, Richard Burt. “The property will act as a multi-purpose racehorse welfare facility for the use of retraining by accredited re-trainers and emergency care for retired racehorses.” Touchstone Farm will be taken over by RWWA mid-December and is expected to be operational early in the new year.
