New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year Series

New Zealand Bloodstock is strongly committed to encouraging and rewarding thoroughbred excellence. Just one way in which we demonstrate this is through our sponsorship of the highly prestigious and coveted New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year Series, this season celebrating its 45th anniversary.

The title is awarded to the most outstanding three-year-old filly of her year in New Zealand. 

The fillies compete throughout a series of ten races, and are awarded points for wins or placings in each race. Every race carries black type, over distances from 1200 metres to the 2400 metres of the Group 1 New Zealand Oaks.

The title is very keenly contested and carries significant prizes for the owner, trainer and breeder of the ultimate Series winner. The winner of the "New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year" title immediately becomes a highly valuable breeding proposition and earns her connections $50,000 in bonus cheques including $10,000 for her breeder, $10,000 for her trainer and $30,000 for her owner.
