VOBIS Sires is the newest addition to the Victorian owner and breeder incentive scheme, VOBIS. It aims to encourage support of Victorian-based stallions and provide investors the opportunity to share in additional racing prizemoney and bonuses.
The progeny of VOBIS Sires stallions will be eligible to compete in two new exclusive races that are to become permanent fixtures on the annual Victorian Owners and Breeders Raceday at Caulfield:
Thoroughbreds aiming to compete in these two scheduled feature races must first have been nominated to both Super VOBIS and VOBIS Gold, and must also be the progeny of a VOBIS Sires stallion.
To nominate your Victorian Stallion to VOBIS Sires for the 2019 breeding season, submit a nomination form to Racing Victoria by Friday 30 August, 2019.
Nominations for the VOBIS Sires program open before the breeding season, which commences in Spring.
Victorian stallion owners can nominate their stallion to VOBIS Sires by completing a nomination form, click here to download a nomination form, before 30 August, 2019.
Once stallion owners submit the nomination form for each season they will be accredited by Racing Victoria to use the VOBIS Sires logo for stallion marketing purposes throughout that breeding season.
The VOBIS Sire program delivers valuable support to the Victorian racing industry. The fact that this year has seen a record-breaking 72 VOBIS Sires nominations for the 2018 stallion listings—up from 54 in 2015–is evidence of how the program has gone from strength to strength.
Victorian owners, trainers and syndicators will get to bid on the crop of VOBIS Sires eligible yearlings as they pass through the auction ring at the 2019 yearling sales. These are the yearlings born in 2017 from the mares covered in 2016. If you are thinking of buying a yearling, you should look up the VOBIS Sires nomination list of 2016.
