NZB Sponsorships 2023-24

In support of the growth and prosperity of New Zealand's thoroughbred industry, New Zealand Bloodstock is the proud sponsor of a host of races around New Zealand, Australia and Asia, including two races forming the richest race meeting on the calendar, the $1 million TAB Karaka Millions (2YO) and the $1.5m Karaka Millions 3YO Classic.

In a grand show of support for the NZ breeding industry, NZB Insurance has lent its considerable support to New Zealand's Pearl Series providing over $5 million in prizemoney and bonuses across 200 races for fillies and mares around the country. For registration and details contact the NZTBA here.

New Zealand Bloodstock also supports fillies racing in New Zealand through sponsorship of the prestigious Filly of the Year Series and Southern Filly of the Year Series, where the country's three-year-old fillies battle it out for the coveted crown. 

Aside from racing, NZB also heavily backs various industry organisations and not-for-profit companies directly or indirectly associated with the industry such as the NZ Horse Ambulance Trust and Beyond the Barriers
