About the event

Topic:

Post-mortem of pregnancy loss in thoroughbred horses – what have we learned? 

With Joan Carrick and Viki Brookes

Event URL will be emailed to guests prior to the event.

About:

Thoroughbred breeders across Victoria had access to fully funded, confidential foetal post-mortems during the 2022 and 2023 foaling seasons, putting them on the front foot when it comes to reducing the risk of abortions in pregnant mares. Phase two of the ‘Post-mortem of pregnancy loss in thoroughbred horses’ project, funded by industry-paid levies through the AgriFutures Thoroughbred Horses Program, has offered breeders and their staff valuable insights into the causes of equine abortions, allowing them to reduce the risk of avoidable foal losses.

Presenters:

Dr Joan Carrick has more than 30 years of experience carrying out foetal post-mortems on foals and is an integral member of the highly experienced project team. Joan and researcher Viki Brookes will give an overview of the project giving deeper insight into the causes of mid-to-late-term abortions in their operations. Stud farms, owners and veterinarians can use these insights to more effectively manage pregnant mares, ultimately reducing the risk of abortions and boosting the numbers of healthy foals born each season.
