What is Super VOBIS?

Super VOBIS is the Victorian Owners and Breeders Incentive Scheme (VOBIS) that rewards owners and breeders who invest in Victorian bloodstock.

The internationally recognised incentive scheme maximises market interest in Victorian bred horses, while increasing racetrack earnings during their racing career.

Up to $13 million worth of Super VOBIS bonuses is on offer across over 840 races each year.

Once your horse is Super VOBIS nominated, it’s then eligible for the excellent VOBIS Gold incentive scheme to further increase its earning potential on the track.

Victoria’s two lucrative owners’ and breeders’ incentive schemes give owners and breeders a fantastic opportunity to gain maximum rewards in Victorian bred horses.

Both Super VOBIS and VOBIS Gold are world-leading incentive schemes providing value and importance for Victorian breeders.

It makes them very attractive to buyers looking to purchase horses at yearling sales each year.

“As a syndicator racing horses in Victoria, when we complete our short list at each yearling sale, we will always favour those yearlings that are Super VOBIS qualified.”

Darren Dance (Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock)

Super VOBIS provides a fantastic opportunity for breeders and owners to increase their racing returns in Victoria.

How Does Super VOBIS Work?

Foals are eligible for Super VOBIS with a once only payment by the 1st of February.

They are then eligible for substantial bonuses when they win or place in specified TAB races in Victoria, primarily when two and three years old.

Additional races are programmed throughout the year for Super VOBIS qualified horses regardless of age.

Super VOBIS is open to:

1. The progeny of all Victorian based stallions.
2. Interstate bred foals whose dam visits a Victorian stallion in the year they are born.
3. Foals by interstate stallions whose dams (at the time of foaling) were owned by a Victorian breeder. Provided the foal and dam residency requirements of Condition 4.1 are met.

Nominations close on February 1st and late nominations close on June 30th.
