Getting the Facts

Getting the facts

It's easy to obtain information on the thoroughbred industry from any of the specialist newspapers and magazines on sale at most newsagents.

These publish the results of yearling sales, stakes races and the sires' lists (Leading Sire by Earnings, by Winners etc.). Thoroughbred Breeders Australia and state officers can also help with information and advice.
