Our KZN Breeders Series has been enthusiastically received and supported by owners and trainers of “KZN-bred” horses over the last couple of years – and has seen us receive in excess of 800 entries for the day.

The KZN Breeders Series of eight R200 000 races was introduced to reward our owners and trainers who support our local breeders with the purchase of “KZN-bred” horses, by offering an opportunity to win a substantial stake on the day.

Supplementary Entries will open again in April and close on 23 April 2015 at 16:00, however this will incur an entry fee of R2 280 (incl Vat). The entry and supplementary fees have remained the same for the last three years.

Supporting the R1 million KZN Breeders Mile on Sunday, 28 June 2015, will be eight other races carrying a stake of R200 000 each but restricted to horses that qualify as “KZN-breds” in terms of the KZN Breeders Premium scheme.

The meeting comes the weekend before the KZN Yearling Sale and will give added incentive to prospective buyers to invest in KZN-bred stock – the winners and first three places of each of the KZN Breeders Series of races, in addition to the large winning stake, each receiving a voucher towards the purchase of a KZN-bred yearling at the KZN Yearling Sale a week later.

The eight supporting races will be two races each over 1200m, 1600m and 2000m, one each for fillies and mares and colts and geldings respectively and two juvenile races each for colts and fillies over 1200m. The races will be open to all horses country-wide whose credentials meet the criteria of “KZN-bred” as prescribed by the rules of the KZN Breeders Premium Scheme.

The breeder must be registered and in turn, the breeder must have registered the horse with the Scheme to be considered for entry.

To qualify for the races, points will be awarded in the months leading up to the racemeeting, from 1 January 2015 to time of Final Acceptance. All races run throughout South Africa qualify for point-scoring purposes.

Horses registered at first entry will receive a 4-point bonus but horses supplemented in April will not qualify for the bonus.

Points for Maiden races will be awarded on a 4, 3, 2 basis for first, second and third. All other races, including Grade 1’s, will have points awarded from first to fifth on 8, 6, 4, 3, 1 basis.

Points will be awarded regardless of the distance of the races and it will be up to the connections of the horses as to which races they nominate for. The intention is to publish a points log on afortnightly basis.

Keep an eye on our website for the updated logs.

To check if your racehorse is registered with the KZN Breeders Premium Scheme in order to qualify, contact dhev@goldcircle.co.za with the horses name, dam and year of foaling.

We look forward to the entries and attracting yet another day of quality fields of KZN-breds and a day of first class racing and entertainment for breeders and owners alike.
