Hunter Valley Purple Zone Approved
Thoroughbred Breeders Australia president John Messara confirmed authorities have "approved in principle" the introduction of a Purple Zone (allowing restricted movement of mares onto properties for the breeding season). Messara told racenet.com.au: "It is a significant breakthrough. There are still a lot of technical issues & conditions to be worked through, but it's a great result for the breeding industry. The zone & perimeter details are expected to be known midweek."
