- Let us never forget the sacrifices that many men, women, children and animals including our wonderful standardbreds, made to give us the opportunity to live as we do in a lucky country. Many of our own standardbreds left for war. Not one returned.
As a result of the extension of the racing season, most of the Western Australian juvenile feature races have been moved by RWWA to later timeslots.
You will also have an extra 4 months of racing your 2yo as a 2yo, and your 3yo as a 3yo (September to December)
