Race Summaries On Aust Studbook
Keeper of the Australian Stud Book Michael Ford announced "an historic joint initiative by Australian breeding & racing authorities" which will see the Stud Book "now display racing summaries provided by Racing Information Services Australia on its Official Pedigree webpage". Ford noted: "It has been our dream for many years to link pedigrees to racing performance & we appreciate the assistance of RISA's chief executive Myles Foreman for enabling it to happen." RISA provides the racing industry with nominations, acceptances & race results for all Australian races. The Australian Stud Book identifies all thoroughbreds & provides RISA with details of horses that have been parentage verified. The Stud Book's Official Pedigree webpage "will now include the number of starts, placings, prize-money & last 3 starts of every horse which has raced in Australia & New Zealand since 1992".
