Buyers should remember, the best approach to finding a successful yearling is typically through careful planning, hard work, and research rather than relying on the unpredictability of ‘that one will do’. The lots above clearly show a pathway of getting the percentages on your side.

Add that to APG’s 2 x $100K races and the QBRED For Life Scheme, which delivers over $4 million in additional returns for breeders and owners of harness horses bred and racing in Queensland. With exclusive stakes, bonuses, and a range of incentives, it adds tremendous value to horse ownership in the region.
