As we head into our 2022 Sales Season, APG is delighted to announce that we have secured a major new multi-year sponsorship with online wagering provider, Neds, which promises to be a game changer for APG.

Thanks to the amazing support of our new partner, Neds, APG has been able to put together a truly incredible sales and race series offering for 2022 and beyond that we genuinely believe represents the greatest offering in the history of harness racing.

Importantly, this outstanding prizemoney, which represents Australasia’s richest standardbred sales series, is only available thanks to APG’s industry-owned and not-for-profit status.
