Project Details


This project aims to understand the perceptions of riding weight structures within the horse racing industry and the scope for change to these riding weights from the perspective of stakeholders, jockeys, trainers, owners and health professionals. This project also aims to understand what markers of health are affected at various weights jockeys are riding at to allow us to further understand the minimum weights jockeys should be riding at.
