What does an EWIO do first on arrival at a racecourse?
The first Equine Welfare Integrity Officer on duty will arrive no less than four hours before the time of the first race. They will turn the security cameras on and check the perimeter fencing and gates to ensure that the yard is secure.
Scan and Identify any early or overnight arrivals.
They will then prepare the relevant paper work ready for the arrival of the raceday runners.
