2019 IRT Victorian Breeders Awards

2019 IRT Victorian Breeders Awards

HBV is pleased to announce the date for this year's 2018-19 IRT Victorian Breeder Awards to compliment the inclusion of our Woodlands Victorian Breeders Award in the Gordon Rothacker Medal programme.

A two-course carvery will be enjoyed before the presentations commence, including the Benstud Victorian Pacing Broodmare & Niota Trotting Broodmare of the Year, and the nominees of the Woodlands Victorian Breeder of the Year before the winner is announced the following week at the industry's night-of-nights, the Gordon Rothacker Medal night.

An exciting new venue will allow guests to make a full day outing and enjoy the opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues in a beautiful, relaxed space.
