VOBIS Gold Noms Close Today

Thursday, 31st August 2017

Nominations for Victoria’s lucrative owners and breeders’ inventive scheme, VOBIS Gold, close today - Thursday, 31 August 2017. Eligible horses will be able to compete for a share of over $8.5 million in VOBIS Gold prize money and bonuses annually, spread across more than 250 bonus races and 18 feature races as part of the exclusive VOBIS Gold Premier Race Series. For a one-off fee of $1100, connections can nominate this year’s crop of two-year-olds (foals born in 2015) for VOBIS Gold, as well as lodge late nominations for Super VOBIS before today’s 5pm deadline. Late nominations for Super VOBIS horses will incur an additional fee, depending on the category of the horse being nominated. Racing Victoria Executive General Manager of Racing, Greg Carpenter, said it has been encouraging to see the continued support of Victorian breeders, owners and trainers investing in VOBIS, which is enabling RV to expand the program each year. “In 2012-13, we conducted 78 races with a total of 734 runners competing in the VOBIS Gold Premier Races and bonus races. Fast-forward to the 2016-17 racing season, and the number of races conducted (272) and starters competing (2,755) has more than tripled,” Mr Carpenter said.
