Racing Chemistry

Pioneering work with Racing and Wagering Western Australia


At ChemCentre, we’ve long been established as pioneers in racing chemistry. In addition to a proven track record of detecting corticosteroids, our laboratory was the first to identify the analgesic drugs etorphine and propoxyphene, used to desensitise horses and greyhounds from injury-related pain.

Today, our racing chemistry work focuses on delivering comprehensive services to Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA), WA’s controlling authority for thoroughbred, harness and greyhound racing.


Identifying a growing range of doping substances

Our testing expertise for RWWA covers the full range of drugs and substances implicated in doping incidents, which plays a key role in ensuring the industry maintains its drug-free status.

We apply the latest and most sensitive analytical techniques, providing rapid results and comprehensive reports released to RWWA within the week of testing. Moreover, our methods are regularly updated to ensure we are able to identify all new medicines and potential doping drugs.

What’s more, as with all of our analytical testing services, our racing chemistry specialists provide expert testimony at court hearings, presenting qualified evidence that’s reliable and defensible.

Please note, our racing chemistry services are only available to racing industry authorities.
