Equimillion Launched – $1m Equestrian Event For Retired Thoroughbred Racehorses

It was today announced that Racing NSW will be launching an equestrian event with a minimum of $1 million in prizemoney exclusively for retired Thoroughbred racehorses called Equimillion.

Equimillion will showcase the versatility and suitability of Thoroughbreds for careers outside of racing, with the inaugural event to be held on the October long weekend in 2023.

The $1 million plus in prizemoney on offer at Equimillion will be distributed across a range of disciplines and classes in the biggest two-day equestrian event ever to be held in NSW.

The Equimillion competition will include eventing, show jumping, dressage and showing with a particular focus on amateur competitors.

Ahead of the event, Racing NSW will host an auction for recently retired Thoroughbred racehorses, with those horses being purchased at the auction being eligible to compete at Equimillion.

“Equimillion will become the go to event for equestrian competitors in all disciplines,” said Racing NSW Chief Executive, Peter V’landys AM.

“It has the potential to carry more than the $1 million in prizemoney and in time will be not only a major equestrian event, but a major event for NSW with competitors coming from all states of Australia,” Mr V’landys AM added.

Further information regarding the Equimillion auction and event will be announced shortly. For more information email
