NZ Bloodstock Broodmare Catalogues Now Out

Tuesday, 4th July 2006

Catalogues for NZB's National Broodmare Sale, scheduled for August 6 & 7 at Karaka, are now available. The sale will feature a total of 365 catalogued lots including 289 broodmares, 15 yearlings, 17 two-year-olds, 23 racehorses, 15 untried horses and 6 stallion shares. This year's National Broodmare Sale has moved to its new August date to take advantage of New Zealand's revised depreciation regime which comes into effect on August 1. The change to the law will see a decrease in the maximum write-down period for broodmares from 8 years to 5 years (or 6 years for those few that commence breeding at age 2). Broodmares that commence breeding at age 8 and over will be written-off in full in the first year of breeding.
