New Sulky Warrant of Fitness Required

All sulkies are due for a new WOF (BLUE tag) by 31 January 2023

The White WOF tag will expire on 31 January 2023 and a new Blue WOF must be obtained prior to this date. All sulkies must be registered every year and a new WOF is required every two years.

Unless your sulky has a Blue WOF tag attached effective from 1 February 2023 it will not be covered for any claims under the Sulky Fund and there is a fine of $100 for presenting your horse to race with an unwarranted sulky.
