Official Racing Australia Statement on Cobalt

Thursday, 21st November 2019

In what was already considered a fait accompli, Racing Australia has released an official statement on its stance regarding the widely debated rules in relation to cobalt: “Racing Australia’s Veterinary and Analysts Committee (VAC) recently completed a review of matters raised in relation to cobalt and provided the Board of Racing Australia with its expert advice on the matter. The Board also considered that the view among international racing authorities continues to be consistent with Racing Australia that cobalt has the potential to positively affect performance and is a welfare risk at toxic levels and that Rules of Racing are required to protect against this risk. In light of VAC’s advice, the Board of Racing Australia reaffirmed its position in respect of cobalt and advises that it does not propose to make any amendments to the Australian Rules of Racing.”
