It has been identified that of the 7,671 broodmares residing in NSW, approximately 1,865 were not used for breeding purposes in 2014-15. 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, Racing NSW 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 Racing NSW’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 Racing NSW'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 four months. If Racing NSW is not notified the horse has been successfully leased, after four months it will be deleted.
RACEHORSE LEASING FORUM
Racing NSW's Racehorse Leasing Forum has proven a popular initiative. The Racehorse Leasing Forum was established by RNSW following the success of the Broodmare Forum.
The Racehorse Leasing Forum has been designed to act as a 'broker' through whom lessors and potential lessees can be matched, with the aim to increase the number of owners and horses participating in the industry.
Racehorse owners are invited to list their horses on this website (the list also appears in the monthly Racing NSW Magazine) together with their contact details. Potential lessees may then contact the lessor and negotiate a lease with the owner. Racing NSW does not charge for this service.
Leasing is an economical alternative to purchasing a thoroughbred as a lessee does not have to outlay the capital required to purchase a racehorse. Up to 10 individuals may arrange a lease and race a horse as partners, or form registered syndicates for the lease (the Owner cannot offer shares in the Lease unless registering with ASIC, but a lessee can form a partnership privately with friends and colleagues and divide the lease into shares).
Typically, the lessee is responsible for all costs associated with racing and maintaining the leased horse, and pays the lessor an agreed percentage of prizemoney earned. Leasing of horses is strictly controlled by the Registrar of Racehorses and the Rules of Racing. Racing NSW is a facilitator in this process, and will not take part in any negotiations between the parties.

This initiative is consistent with Racing NSW's objective of increasing participation in racing at all levels, and the promotion of ownership is one Racing NSW's paramount objectives.
Racehorses for lease are entered as they are received. i.e. the most recently received racehorses for lease will be on the top of the list. A list of Lessors' email addresses - where supplied - have been added with a contact telephone number the alternative option.
Racehorses are now deleted after approximately four months time. If Racing NSW is not notified the horse has been successfully leased, after around four months it will be deleted from the list. Lessors are quite welcome to contact Racing NSW to re-enter their horse(s) should it be taken from the list.
