QBRED For Life

RQ-H-11290-QBRED-Brochure-A4-FA-Page-02.jpgQBRED is an incentive scheme delivering over $3.5 million in additional returns for breeders and owners of harness horses bred and racing in Queensland. 

With a lucrative range of exclusive stakes and   bonuses on offer, only QBRED registered horses race for:

  •  $14,000 QBRED ‘First Win’ Bonus (from January 1,  2022);
  •  $7,500 QBRED ‘Second Win’ Bonus; 
  •  $1,000 QBRED Cash bonuses (on all races <$4,000); 
  • Group 1 TRIADS for 2YO & 3YO; and 
  • Exclusive rich QBRED Race Series. 

Some of harness racing’s biggest stars have been QBRED registered, including Blacks A Fake, Be   Good Johnny, Forever Gold, Majestic Mach, Leo’s   Best, Bettor Promise, Bettorthanspecial, Catcha   Lefty, Colt Thirty One and Smart As Camm Be.

The 2019/20 Racing Season opened an exciting new chapter of the QBRED bonus scheme, with the introduction of ‘QBRED For Life’. 

‘QBRED For Life’ removes the age restrictions on the first and second win bonus (providing the applicable entry fees are paid), while also offering access to the QBRED Cash Bonuses. 

This means that QBRED benefits will be available to standarbreds of all ages. 

This provides owners and breeders with enduring benefits and means there will now be less pressure to breed a horse early in the season and less pressure on horses having to win their bonus by the end of a season, while also ensuring horses that mature later in life maintain the opportunity to win lucrative bonuses for their connections. 

If you have any queries in relation to the eligibility of your horse/s for QBRED For Life please contact Racing Queensland.
