  • The Westspeed Incentive Scheme was established by Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA) to support and promote WA Thoroughbred breeding and racing activities.

    Providing these additional earning opportunities to qualified Thoroughbreds ensures that breeding, owning and racing a Westspeed horse in WA is one of the best value for money horse ownership opportunities in Australia.

    The Scheme began in the 1999/2000 racing season and has grown to now distribute bonuses of approximately $8 million each year.

    With the enhancements announced in late 2019, it is expected to distribute more than $12 million to owners and breeders annually in 2022/23.

    As at 1 May 2021, the horses earning the highest returns through Westspeed are:
