Open letter from Harness Racing NSW Chairman Ken Brown.

It is with much pleasure that I invite you to be a part of the Breed NSW Scheme and in turn be a recipient of part of the $1.7M funding Harness Racing NSW has set aside for state based breeders in the upcoming season.

The Board and Management have always had our breeding sector at the front of mind. This has been demonstrated through the support given during the recent devastating NSW drought and of course with the highest return to breeders in the Breeders Challenge bonus system.

The Breed NSW Scheme is for both the pacing and trotting gait.

In brief for mares permanently located in this State the Breed NSW Scheme delivers:

  • $250 when your mare has a positive pregnancy test;
  • $1,000 when your mare births a live foal by any stallion; and
  • An extra $500 if that foal is by a stallion standing in NSW.

There are other incentives previously instigated by HRNSW such as the Colonial Stallions and Trot NSW Schemes that will add $500 to the Breed NSW Scheme.

Following are details of the Breed NSW Scheme for your consideration of breeding your mare where you and the resultant foal can be absolute winners.

I encourage you to take advantage of the funding on offer and wish you all the best on the arrival of a healthy foal eligible to race for the prizemoney on offer here in the Premier State of NSW.
