Super VOBIS

Super VOBIS is the base program of the Victorian owner and breeder incentive scheme, VOBIS. It is designed to reward owners and breeders who invest in Victorian bred horses by increasing their racetrack earnings.

Super VOBIS qualified horses are eligible to earn attractive bonuses when they win or run a place in any two or three-year-old TAB race in Victoria (and stayers maidens for all ages of horses), in addition to the prizemoney already allocated to that race.

How To Get Involved

Nominations to Super VOBIS 2017-born are now open. To be eligible for the program, your foal must fall into one of three categories:

  • Category A – Victorian Sired
  • Category B – Breedback
  • Category C – Victorian Breeder - Interstate Sired

The nominator (i.e. breeder or owner) pays a one-off Super VOBIS nomination fee for each eligible foal. Once nominated for Super VOBIS, horses are eligible to enter Victoria's Super VOBIS bonus races.

Nominations close 30 April 2019.
