More for Breeders at Humbletonian 2017

May 24, 2017 | Harness Breeders Victoria More for Breeders at Humbletonian 2017

Breeders of winning horses on the Vicbred Humbletonian Day race meeting at Maryborough on August 31 will benefit from new bonuses on offer in 2017! This event is a terrific promotion of our Vicbred futurity scheme, with each race a maiden field programmed representing the very last opportunity for the season for horses to claim their 2YO, 3YO or 4YO $7,000 First Win Bonus.

The new structure of our long-term sponsorship of this unique race day will see the following benefits on offer:

  • A $250 cash bonus to the breeder of each race winner from HBV (regardless of membership)
  • A $250 cash bonus to the breeder of each pacing race winner from Maryborough Harness Racing Club IF the breeder is on course
  • A $250 cash bonus to the breeder of each trotting race winner from the Victorian Square Trotters Association IF the breeder is on course AND a current member of VSTA

In addition to cash bonuses, MHRC and Harness Racing Victoria will have an exclusive hosptiality area on course for both owners AND breeders this year, and full breeding details (breeders, sire, dam & damsire) will appear beside each horse in the race book for the first time.

MHRC also present connections of each winner with a framed photograph, and VSTA provide a trophy for connections of winning trotters.

This is a very exciting change to our sponsorship that sees breeders specifically benefiting from our investment in this event which also showcases valuable elements of the Vicbred program. Conditions and race programming details will be made available soon by HRV in the Harness Racer and on Harness Web.

Save the date - Thursday 31st August 2017 - and make sure you're on course if a horse you've bred is racing to get the most from this promotion!
