New Zealand Bloodstock Southern Filly of the Year Series
NZB has been the proud sponsor of the Southern Filly of the Year Series since the 2000-01 season.
The Series is an important part of the southern racing calendar, designed to assist with the longterm growth and success of the New Zealand breeding industry by providing opportunities for good fillies to earn valuable black-type.
The title is awarded to the three-year-old filly who succeeds in winning the most points after the completion of the four races in the Series, with the trophy awarded to connections at the South Island Awards. The 2018-19 Southern Filly of the Year winner will also receive an insurance policy from NZB Insurance to the value of $50,000 + GST.
In the event of two fillies having equal points following the running of the final leg, the filly with the best finishing position in the NZB Warstep Stakes will be determined the winner of the Series.
By sponsoring this coveted Series, NZB are working to ensure the owners, breeders and trainers in the New Zealand racing and breeding industry are attractively rewarded.
