Racing NSW's Broodmare Forum has proven quite a popular initiative.
It has been identified that of the 9,693 broodmares residing in NSW, approximately 2,779 were not used for breeding purposes in 2009-10. It is believed that broodmare owners may only have their mares served by stallions every second or third year.
To promote all broodmares being deployed, RNSW created the Broodmare Forum (the list also appears in the monthly Racing NSW Magazine).
The Forum enables persons wishing to use the broodmares, to contact the owner and negotiate a price or an agreement to use the mare. For example a fee may be paid, or the broodmare owner might retain a share of the foal.
This initiative is consistent with RNSW's objective of increasing participation in racing at all levels, and the promotion of ownership & adding to the base of racehorses in this State is one of RNSW's paramount objectives. Racing NSW does not charge for this service.
Broodmares for lease or for breeding use through negotiation with the owner(s) are now entered as they are received. i.e. the most recently received broodmares will be on the top of the list. A list of email addresses for broodmare owners - where supplied - have been added with a contact telephone number the alternative option.
Broodmares are now purged from the list after approximately four months. If RNSW is not notified the horse has been successfully leased, after four months it will be deleted.
Owners are quite welcome to contact RNSW to re-enter their broodmare(s) should it be taken from the list.

Further information can be obtained by contacting Racing NSW:
Please note: Broodmare Owners should make contact (as per above) when an agreement has been reached with another party, in order to have your broodmare deleted from the list.
