The amazing opportunity to nominate your yearlings alongside the best breeders in the country for APG’s greatest ever sales season ends soon.  Have we told you lately that we’re the only Industry Owned – Not For Profit – Yearling Sales Company?

Breeders looking to taking full advantage of this unprecedented opportunity will realise more benefits than at any point in APG’s 33 year history – but you must act NOW.

And it’s all thanks to the $3M game-changing partnership with online wagering giant, Neds.

APG is offering around $400,000 in vendor benefits exclusively to those vendors that nominate their yearlings for the 2022 Neds APG Yearling Sales by 16 August 2021.

  • Free entry for all pacers nominated for and presented for sale at either of the 2022 Neds APG Melbourne or Sydney Sales;
  • Free entry for Trotters nominated and presented for sale at any of the 2022 Neds APG Sales (Brisbane, Melbourne & Sydney);
  • $10,000 vendor bonuses for each and every yearling that is sold at the 2022 Neds APG Sales and subsequently contests either of the Neds APG 2yo Gold Bullion Finals at Menangle, each of which carries a jaw dropping $750,000 in Prizemoney and Bonuses.

In short, APG’s new multi-year partnership with Neds is a game changer for APG and the harness racing industry at large.  It’s allowed APG to put together a truly incredible sales and race series offering for 2022 and beyond that, many astute participants genuinely believe this represents the greatest offering in the history of harness racing.

The bottom line is that APG’s 2022 offering will see graduates compete for the most prizemoney ever in APG’s past, whilst vendors will gain more media exposure, face lower costs and be eligible for more benefits than at any point in APG’s 33 year history.

Leading key industry stakeholders & breeders have had this to say:

Jackie Gibson:

” The Neds-APG $3M announcement of a new race series is a massive positive for the sport.  Success Stud have had a long and very rewarding partnership with the team at APG, and this will be ongoing”.  Jackie continued, “This is the greatest announcement in the 30 or so years I’ve been in Harness Racing – well done to my selling partners and friends at APG”.

Phil Thurston:

“We have been worried recently about the proposal by Harness Racing Administrators to introduce a 15% levee on owners/breeders especially as in recent months as we have invested a significant amount in acquiring two new top quality mares, namely Nostra Villa and Miss Halfpenny.

The announcement by APG has really helped to restore our confidence and we now intend to breed all of our mares this coming season. We would like to congratulate APG and NEDS  for providing this wonderful boost to the sport. The financial commitment of $3M is massive and will benefit all participants in the harness racing industry. Denise and I are extremely relieved and excited and are looking forward to continuing our long and very successful partnership with APG in 2022”.

Matt Day:

“The team at APG are like family to me and any talk that Jannine and l would not be selling all of our yearlings with the only industry owned, non for profit yearling sales company, is totally ridiculous. We have Neds-APG in our DNA.  We believe the Neds- APG announcement was the greatness news Harness Racing has had for decades. We also believe it’s time for all owners & breeders looking to sell in 2022 to come HOME and enter their lots with our only industry owned, non for profit yearling sales company, Neds – APG.  With an astonishing $3M pot of gold on offer in races and bonuses, add that to the free entry, we couldn’t be prouder of the partnership we have built with the David and his team.  We are so positive about the announcement on Monday night that we are now looking at breeding 25 quality mares this season, our biggest number ever”.

Scott Robertson:

“ While it’s the only Industry Owned -Not For Profit – Sales Company,  it’s also got a breathtaking $3M pot of gold on offer in races and bonuses. Add that to the free entry (until 16th August ), and we couldn’t be prouder of our 25 year association and friendship we now built on with David and his team at Neds- APG”.

Jake Stockton:

“Talk had been getting out that APG were working on a game changing announcement with a massive sponsorship deal and they had reached out to breeders like Jackie Gibson regarding the best way for that money to flow onto as many people as possible.

We would like to congratulate APG and NEDS for providing this wonderful boost to the sport. The financial commitment of $3M is massive and will benefit all participants in the harness racing industry.

The vendor bonus initiative is a brilliant idea and will be well received. We also believe it’s the best thing for the sport for all owners & breeders looking to sell in 2022 so they can come HOME to our only industry owned, not for profit yearling sales company, Neds – APG, and enter their lots before 16 August. As a family we are so confident that the Neds- APG multiyear deal will be game changing and we will be joining our largest ever band of 16 broodmares this season”.

Ty Robson:

“I’m impressed with the direction and initiative of the APG Management over the past 18 months. The Vendors Bonus of $10,000 if one of our yearlings makes the rich Finals at Menangle an initiative that we couldn’t resist“.

Ian Slater:

“With a hair-raising $3M pot of gold on offer in races and bonuses like free entry (until 16th August), the bottom line is that APG’s 2022 offering will see graduates compete for the most prizemoney in APG’s past and vendors like us will be eligible for more benefits than at any point in APG’s 33 year history.

We just need to be a part of the excitement and we are truly grateful that we have an industry owned, non for profit yearling sales company, Neds–APG” looking out for us.

Lindsay Vagg:

“Mary and I were really worried about the future of the sport we love. We had real concerns on who could possibly step-up and not only save harness racing but lead the way to much brighter future.  Thank heavens for Neds – APG, we say. David and his team never stop promoting the wonderful young horse raised here in QLD.

Only last week they organised some inspections from well-known and very successful Victorian buyers. The Neds-APG $3M pot of Gold is massive and will benefit all participants (particularly those from Qld & WA) in the harness racing industry.  The vendor bonus initiative is a brilliant idea and will be well received. We, like many long term participants that truly love harness racing, believe it’s the best thing for the sport, A special big thanks must go out to our only industry owned, not for profit yearling sales company, Neds – APG”.

Kerrie Hymers:

“The Neds APG offer is what the sport has been screaming for. To think it’s got an almost unimaginable $3M pot of gold on offer in races and bonuses, like free entry (until 16th August).  While we are looking to build our close association with David and his team at Neds-APG, the bottom line is that APG’s 2022 offering has the most prizemoney in APG’s past and vendors just like us will be eligible for more benefits than at any point in APG’s 33 year history.

Even for us in down here in Tasmania, we just want to be a part of the excitement”.

John Markham:

“We would like to make it public and congratulate APG on the monumental prizemoney achieved for the Neds-APG $3M series. Not since the original race in 1991 with a $500,000 mixed sex 2yo final, have we been so proud to see a concept like this reach its full potential.  APG have combined a happy medium of state finals with a National Championship Final, (the BEST 2yo COLT & FILLY in AUSTRALIA!) which was the original concept from 1990. Well done”.
