HRV: Change to naming applications

01 June 2023

From June 1 naming applications previously submitted through Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) will be processed by Harness Racing Australia (HRA).

All other registration functions, including foal notifications, stallion services, stud registrations, embryo transfer approvals, exports, retirements and licensing, will be retained by HRV.

Participants will continue to submit naming applications through Harnessweb and select Harness Racing Victoria as the state body or by using the HRV paper naming application on website

If you need to contact someone about your naming application you will now need to speak directly with HRA via email to or phone 03 9227 3000 (select naming).
