In 1981, the Western Australian Greyhound Racing Association was established under the Western Australian Greyhound Racing Association Act and the Assets and Liabilities of the Canning Greyhound Racing Association were transferred to WAGRA.

The Western Australian Greyhound Racing Association Act 1981 also provided for the absorption of the Mandurah Greyhound Racing Association into WAGRA.

1995/96 saw WAGRA's Committee approve the establishment of another greyhound racing track based in the Avon Valley, initially for the purposes of trialing and training. On 30 September 1996 Western Australians witnessed the new venue's first race meeting.

Greyhound racing has undergone many changes since 1974, including the transition from grass to sand tracks, the change to the above ground lure systems and most recently the re-development of the Mandurah venue to include a 599-metre one-turn track. The Western Australian Greyhound Racing Association now conduct 6 race meeting per week across the three venues, a far cry from the early days of one meeting per week when Cannington first opened.

Harness racing continued at the WACA until 1929 when a new course was opened under the name of Brennan Park. The name was changed in 1935 to Gloucester Park. Harness racing also commenced at Richmond Raceway East Fremantle in 1928.

Because the pacing gait is generally easier to maintain and easier to teach, the majority of harness races are for pacers. If you've ever seen a pacer racing, you would have noticed a weird collection of straps connecting its front and rear legs on the same side. These straps are called hopples. They can help the pacer balance its stride and maintain a pacing gait. In comparison, trotters do not wear hopples because of their diagonal movement - perhaps this is why they tend to 'break' more often than pacers.

If a trotter or a pacer gallops or otherwise breaks stride during a race, the driver must pull up the horse and coax it back into the approved gait. This is vitally important, because it is unfair to the other runners and is an offence. It is also an offence for a horse not to be raced on its merits. A driver may be reprimanded or penalised by the stipendiary stewards, who supervise the running of licensed race meetings.
