The Equine Welfare Integrity Officer’s (EWIO’s) role encompasses both the Equine Welfare/Sampling Unit duties and the Stable Security/Integrity role. The EWIO Team at each race meeting consists of a minimum of 3 people. The role of the EWIO is to ensure the required standards of equine welfare and integrity are maintained both in and around the Stable Yard.
They do this by checking and recording the accreditation of all those entering the stables. They also identify all of the horses when they arrive at the stables. This is done by scanning the horse’s individual microchip number and reconciling it against the list of the day’s runners.
They are then predominantly based in the Sampling Unit during racing, taking post race samples, packing and processing them to strict Standard operating procedures, which requires meticulous attention to detail.
