Return to Sires Stakes Racing
In recognising the local stallion complement HRSA advises that it has committed to funding a $30,000 2YO race in the 2022-23 season specifically for horses sired by SA based stallions. The Board believes that this initiative will assist in stimulating foal numbers within the state, as well as encouraging greater breeding involvement.
Additionally, HRSA will shortly be setting up a database of mares available for lease this coming breeding season, whereby anyone wishing to breed a foal, but who does not currently have a mare available, will be able to lease one for the upcoming breeding season.
