BLOODSTOCK South Africa is pleased to announce a revamp of their Added Value Stakes Incentive program as part of their continued efforts to reward excellence in breeding and racing.
The latest BSA Press Release reads:
We will be offering added value stakes on ALL 76 black type races for 2 and 3 year olds for horses bought from BSA sales.
This is broken down to 15 Gr 1 races, 13 Gr 2 races,21 Gr 1 Races and 27 Listed Races.
The total added stakes pot will be R5m per annum which is split R3.25m for owners, R1m for breeders, R500k for trainers and R250k for the Horse Care Units to help with the care of our retired athletes.
The buyer buy in is R5000 for NYS and R2500 on other sales, and while buy- in is still voluntary, I encourage you all to participate in this new program as the chances of winning are much higher and rewards early types as well as later developing 3 year olds.
The program is well represented in all major racing centres and will reward quality bloodstock for performance on the racetrack.
So remember to tick the box and ensure you are eligible for this new and exciting incentive.
This program will raise R250 000 per annum for our Horse Care Units and is an important part of us all giving back to the industry by looking after our retired athletes – some of whom are in desperate need of our help.
The internationalisation of our racing and breeding industry is the only way that breeders, owners and trainers will thrive in this country in the future. We are throwing the stable door at finding a way to export our horses and investing all profits from running sales into these efforts.
The international world want quality racehorses and they gauge how good our horses are through our internationally recognised Graded Race System – hence we need to ensure we support this system and make sure we all aspire to breeding and racing Graded Race quality thoroughbreds – our international reputation depends on it!
Our new added value stakes revamp rewards quality and breeding and racing excellence as well as the excellent standards of horsemanship we have in our ranks. The winner of every single black type race for 2 and 3 year olds will receive an added value stake and we feel this is program rewards quality and performance on the track.
I encourage all buyers to tick the box, the chances of winning back your investment are much higher than before and it shows how we as an industry rewards success at the highest level which speaks volumes for our international credibility.
