The QBRED Cash incentives recently announced by Racing Queensland to further support the breeding and racing of QBRED eligible horses starts this Thursday 1 February.
The QBRED cash initiative will offer:
Each selected QBRED Cash bonus race will be indicated in the race programs as a “QBRED Cash Bonus race”.
Each QBRED Cash Bonus race is not just for QBRED horses but open to all horses eligible for that race however should an eligible QBRED win the race a $1,000 QBRED Cash bonus will be paid.
The QBRED Cash bonus will be paid in the proportion of 90% to the current owner(s) and 10% to the breeder(s).
To kick off QBRED Cash in February Racing Queensland will offer the increased opportunities to earn a bonus in the first two weeks with many QBRED Cash races programmed (refer below for programmed races).
These bonuses will be in addition to the lucrative opportunities already available to QBRED registered horses, including the 2yo ($7.5k), 3yo ($7.5k) and 4yo ($2.5k) first win bonuses and the Triad race series for QBRED’s which include $100k finals for 2yo.
There has never been more incentive to race and / or breed a QBRED.
For yearling buyers head to the Garrards Redcliffe Yearling Sales on Sunday March 25 and select from a host of quality QBRED yearlings to take advantage of what the Queensland breeding industry has on offer.
