Bloodstock

Our bloodstock and equine services

Much of New Zealand's proud heritage of success throughout the world in racing circles is down to our robust breeding industry. Many breeding successes start with the purchase of a filly that has the opportunity to succeed as a broodmare, and the selection of a suitable stallion. The main issue around this selection is the cost of the service. With experience in the bloodstock and breeding industry, we are well suited to assist and guide you with this investment.


Syndicate Structure Advice

Syndicate structure advice

Racing a horse is an exhilarating experience, one that is sometimes best shared with a couple of friends or within a larger syndicate. A syndicate is ideal for an entry level experience where you can nominate your level of ownership and therefore the monthly cost to you. Most trainers have syndicates available with various degrees of ownership. We can help you establish a syndicate or advise you upon entering one, providing you with necessary documentation to secure your investment.


Broodmare and Foal Valuations

Broodmare and foal investments

Knowing the potential value of your investment is an important part of any business venture. This is no different when entering into New Zealand's equine breeding industry. First you will need to acquire a filly or mare, preferably one that has already performed at the races and has a second chance of success as a broodmare. You will then need to select the services of a suitable stallion. There are many stallions standing in New Zealand and Australia that will suit your purposes, but it usually boils down to the cost and whether you are breeding to race the progeny yourself or sell. 


Taxation

Taxation

Racing a horse is not in itself a taxable deduction. However, you may be able to claim expenses of racing your horse as a business activity if the activity is ongoing and part of a larger breeding activity. It is important to understand that involvement in the racing industry comes with risks and implications of GST and Income Tax registration, but our experienced team will be able to help you analyse your investment and make the experience as enjoyable as possible.
