The Southern Filly of the Year Series is an important part of the Southern Racing Calendar. It is designed to assist the longterm growth and success of the New Zealand breeding industry by providing opportunities for good fillies to earn valuable black type while racing in New Zealand.

 The title of New Zealand Bloodstock Southern Filly of the Year is awarded to the three-year-old filly who succeeds in winning the most points after the completion of the four races in the Series.

Points are awarded for first, second and third in each race with:

  • 7 points for first,
  • 4 points for second, and
  • 2 points for third.

In an effort to maximise the chances of the Series determining an outright winner, changes have been made to the format of the Series for the 2016/17 season.

The points structure has been adjusted, as above, and the final leg of the Series, the NZB Warstep Stakes, will act as a 'decider'. In the event of two fillies having equal points following the running of the final leg, the filly with the best finishing position in the NZB Warstep Stakes will be determined the winner of the Series. 

The races are all of Listed status and the Series starts with a 1200m race in September and finishes with a 2000m race in April.

New Zealand Bloodstock has a strong commitment to encouraging a healthy and successful domestic racing industry in New Zealand and, by sponsoring this coveted Series, is working to ensure the owners, breeders and trainers in the New Zealand racing and breeding industry are attractively rewarded.

The 2016/17 New Zealand Bloodstock Southern Filly of the Year title went to Showemup (NZ) (Shamoline Warrior), who earned 7 points for winning the NZB Airfreight Stakes and picked up another 2 for her Warstep Stakes third placing to finish with 9 points.
