The $1.5 million VOBIS Sires annual race series squarely supports Victorian breeders and Victorian sires. VOBIS Sires now offers $7.5 million in the form of $30,000 vouchers on all VOBIS Gold races for the progeny of a VOBIS Sire who wins the race. This means the VOBIS program offers in excess of $30.5 million in prizemoney and bonuses.

Ours is a country that embraces racing: with one in every 254 people involved in racehorse ownership; where our prizemoney is booming; where we breed world class horses; and where owners can enjoy a unique experience at the track in some of the world’s greatest races.
