AI Claim Lodged In Aust Federal Court

Friday, 23rd October 2009

In Australia, a “legal minefield is confronting the racing industry: the push for artificial insemination in thoroughbred breeding,” reported The Daily Telegraph. High profile owner-breeder & former Sydney Turf Club chairman Bruce McHugh confirmed a statement of claim “was lodged in the Federal Court this week which will be delivered to the owners of The Stud Book (Australian Jockey Club & Victoria Racing Club), Australian Racing Board & Racing Information Services Australia, who are against AI in horse racing”. McHugh commented: “We are not trying to interfere with The Stud Book or major studs. But we believe in this day & age, breeders should have the choice to use AI or not. All we want to do is breed our own horses & do it at a fraction of the price. These horses won’t be able to race overseas or breed overseas.”
