Harness Breeders Victoria is pleased to bring breeders and potential breeders the opportunity to come together, network, socialise and most importantly learn through Breed To Succeed, which will be held from 4.30pm on Sunday, August 20.

Through partnering with Harness Racing Victoria and sponsors Llowalong Farms, Woodlands Stud and Alabar, HBV wants you to make the most of your 2023 broodmare investment by hearing from its expert panel of equine health, reproductive and pedigree matching experts featuring Dr Peter Huntingdon (Kentucky Equine Research), Dr Francesca Worsman (equine veterinary medicine specialist, Avenel Equine Veterinary Clinic), Dr Clarissa Brown-Douglas (equine nutritional expert, Kentucky Equine Research), and Dr Kath McIntosh (equine reproductive specialist  Northern Rivers Equine Veterinary Clinic) & Ken Jackson (owner-partner, Kentuckiana Farms Lexington) will help to make the most of your breeding investment and journey.

Also on the agenda:

  • Find the best sires, products and services for you at the trade fair with Victorian businesses presenting their best in feed, futurities, health, breeding and more - stay tuned for an updated list here and on our social accounts.
  • Enjoy tasty finger food and a complimentary welcome drink, plus access to a cash bar at the Shepparton Harness Racing Club across the night.
  • Enter the draw to win more than $21,000 in lucky draw prizes, including a special members-only draw for one of three stallion services (Woodlands Stud’s AMERICAN IDEAL, Alabar’s VINCENT and Llowalong Farm’s PASTOR STEPHEN). If you’re not a 2023 member yet, you can sign up HERE or on the night (credit card or cheque only). Terms & conditions apply including payment of the HRA imported stallion fee on the service to American Ideal.
