VOBIS riches for Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock owners

Mar 25, 2017

As an owner, it is always great to land a winner!

The excitement among fellow owners when watching your horse power to the line is a great feeling.

Add in the prizemoney, plus a collect from the corporate bookmakers and the day is complete.

Well in most cases it is!

The Victorian Owners & Breeders Incentive Scheme (VOBIS) offers some extra money for select races nominated as Super Vobis or Gold Vobis events.

Any Victorian bred thoroughbred is eligible for a slice of those riches if he is registered by his breeder & owners.

In recent times two Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock (ATB) gallopers have reaped the rewards of being VOBIS eligible.

Yesterday at Terang, the Darren Weir trained gelding Ransom Money netted $33,400 for his owners after winning the 1400m SV Crownbet 3YO Maiden Plate.

The extra VOBIS money won was $22,400, giving the overall haul a nice lift from the normal $11,000 for a country Maiden win.

In his four start career, $23,600 of his overall career bank of $38,135 is VOBIS earnings.

A fortnight earlier, Broadway And First won the $80,000 Mildura Cup and landed his owner/breeders another $14,000 to go with the $44,000 first prizemoney.

ATB's Darren & Liz Dance have been breeding their own racehorses for years, and with 35 broodmares on the books will continue to do so for years to come.

With fifteen weanlings on the farm by sires including Americain, Brazen Beau, Crackerjack King, Deep Field, Dissident, Domesday, Foxwedge, Not A Single Doubt, Shamus Award, Smart Missile, Street Boss, Toorak Toff, Wandjina, Zebedee and Zoustar that alone is plenty of reason to grab a racehorse share with Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock.

Add in the fact most will be VOBIS registered & eligible and you cannot go wrong.

While most of our homebred yearlings are fully subscribed we still have shares in two lovely fillies. Our Epaulette filly heads to Michelle Payne as a Ladies Only Ownership galloper, while the Denman filly from our good staying mare Flying Hula goes to Archie Alexander.

Both are very affordable, especially considering some of the big prizemoney they will race for.

Check out the shares available for both on our website.

You can also view our weanlings by going to the side bar menu on our home page.
