Victorian Breeders Awards 2017

Recognising the best of the Victorian Breeding Industry

Harness Breeders Victoria are thrilled to have our three primary Gold Awards presented as part of the Victorian Harness Industry night of nights, the Gordon Rothacker Medal. Breeders this year will be recognised alongside our state's best horses, trainers, drivers and country clubs, a fantastic recognition of the significant part that Breeders play in the industry. The awards that will be presented on the evening - which will have significant online coverage by both HRV and HBV - are:
The Bendstud Standardbreds Victorian Pacing Broodmare of the Year
The Niota Bloodstock Victorian Trotting Broodmare of the Year
The Woodlands Stud Victorian Breeder of the Year
It will also be celebrating other achievements from the season, with our regular draft of awards - Juvenile Sires of the Year, Yearling Sale Toppers, Championship & Group 1 stars, and Time Excellence horses - being presented at a separate event following the Gordon Rothacker night. On feedback from previous years, we are tweaking our own Awards Night to be more accessible and affordable to breeders - more information about this event and how to get tickets will be released soon.
