State Bonus Schemes

Cobbitty Equine Farm have established their main Stallion base in the renowned horse haven of Cobbitty, south-west of Sydney in New South Wales and more recently have spread their operations to Queensland, to their Stockleigh stud 45km south of Brisbane.

Having Stallions standing in both states allows breeders more opportunities and to take advantage of the amazing bonus schemes that both New South Wales and Queensland Harness Racing Boards have on offer. 

It also means wherever your mare is domiciled in Australia, they are eligible for your own state’s breeding scheme as well.


NSW Bred Bonus Scheme

Bonuses are payable to NSW Breeders Challenge / Trot NSW eligible and sustained horses.

Bonuses are won upon the horses first win in NSW in a race valued ≥ $5,000.

2YO$6,000 Bonus Certificate will be issued if won in a 2YO age specific race or a $3,000 Bonus Certificate will be issued if won in a NR/Maiden race.

3YO – $3,000 Bonus Certificate will be issued upon the horses first win in NSW for the season.

For 100% NSW Bred horses, an additional $3,000 True Blue Cash Bonus is payable upon the horses first win in NSW as either a 2YO or 3YO.

If a 4YO horse has not won a bonus as a 2YO or 3YO, a $3,000 Bonus Certificate is issued upon the horses first win in NSW.

Provided a 5YO and older horse has not won a bonus as a 2YO, 3YO or 4YO and the first win is in NSW in a race valued ≥$5,000, and the horse was sustained as either a 2YO or 3YO prior to 31 August, 2020, a $3,000 Bonus Certificate will be issued.

If your mare is domiciled permanently in NSW

The “Breed NSW” Scheme will see more than $1.7 million applied to stimulate breeding initiatives state-wide in year one (season 2022) with a targeted 10% growth in breeding numbers over the following two years.

Owners of broodmares – pacers and trotters – domiciled permanently in NSW from the commencement of the 2022 breeding season (1 August, 2022) will receive:

  • $250 on a 42 day pregnancy test;
  • $1000 on the 2023 HRNSW registration of a live foal; and an additional
  • $500 for live foals by stallions domiciled in NSW which have been accepted into the “Breed NSW” Scheme.

The Colonial Stallion Scheme (pacers $500 cash rebate) and the Trot NSW Incentive (trotters $500 cash rebate) which were introduced as a national first by HRNSW several years ago remain in place effectively delivering a cash rebate of $2000 to the breeder of a live foal which meets all the criteria.

For Example: If you have a mare that has a positive pregnancy to FOR A REASON, who then has a live foal born in NSW and registered and microchipped with HRNSW you will receive $1,750. You will then also have the Colonial Stallion Bonus to claim.

For Example: If you have a mare that has a positive pregnancy to BLING IT ON (Standing in Queensland) , who then has a live foal born in NSW and registered and microchipped with HRNSW you will receive $1,250.
