Racing Queensland In Foal Rebate | Drought Assist

Racing Queensland will step in to assist Queensland’s standardbred breeding industry, which is one of many across the state feeling the crippling effects of drought.

Following feedback from breeders via an industry survey, Racing Queensland found the rising cost of feed and agistment due to drought would likely accelerate a decline in breeding by up to 30%.  

To shore up breeding numbers Racing Queensland will introduce an in-foal rebate of $500 payable to the breeder of any mare – inseminated between 1 August 2018 and 31 January 2019 – that receives a positive 42-day pregnancy test.

The following are the conditions of the initiative:

  • The mare must be a registered standardbred
  • The mare must be inseminated in Queensland by a registered standardbred stallion
  • A Positive 42 day pregnancy test must achieved
  • The mare must be agisted in Queensland throughout the pregnancy
  • The offer will be capped at 4 mares per breeder (where the breeder is the managing owner of the mare)
  • To claim the rebate, the application form must be completed in full.
