Registrar of Racehorses

About ROR

The Registrar of Racehorses (ROR) is a fully integrated division of Racing Information Services Australia (RISA).

ROR's role is to record information regarding the ownership and identity of thoroughbred racehorses for racing in Australia and for export. It is a function critical to the integrity of the racing industry. Our role and responsibilities in the racing industry are governed by the Australia Rules of Racing.

The ROR is responsible for:

  • the original registration and naming of all thoroughbred horses, around 13,800 per year
  • issuing duplicate racing papers in the event they are lost
  • providing an identification service that can be used to find the identity of older horses who have not been micro chipped
  • additional transactions or disputes that may arise

These functions are considered national transactions.

In addition, each Principal Racing Authority (PRA) employs one Deputy Registrar. This Deputy Registrar is responsible for:

  • subsequent changes in ownership (Transfer or Lease) of horses based in their respective states
  • registration of colours
  • registration of Syndicates of owners
  • the regulation of licensed promoters (Syndicators)

These services can be described as state transactions.

The combination of national and state transactional data forms complete the Registrar of Racehorses' database.

ROR also works closely with the Australian Racing Board (ARB) to set policy and amend the Australian Rules of Racing that govern the operation of the ROR.
