New Zealand Bloodstock Sponsorships


In support of the growth and prosperity of New Zealand's thoroughbred industry, New Zealand Bloodstock is the proud sponsor of a host of races around New Zealand, Australia and Asia, including two races forming the richest race meeting on the calendar, the $1 million Karaka Million (2YO) and the $1m Karaka Million 3YO Classic.

In a grand show of support for the NZ breeding industry, NZB Insurance has lent its considerable support to New Zealand's new PEARL SERIES providing over $5 million in prizemoney and bonuses across 200 races for fillies and mares around the country. For registration and details contact the NZTBA.

New Zealand Bloodstock also supports fillies racing in New Zealand through sponsorship of the prestigious Filly of the Year Series and Southern Filly of the Year Series, where the country's three-year-old fillies battle it out for the coveted crown.
