AUSHORSE is the marketing body of the Australian thoroughbred industry. We proudly promote Australia as the leading source for the breeding and sale of high quality thoroughbreds worldwide, and Australia as the pre-eminent country to invest and race in.

Our aim is to encourage investment from overseas, whether to race or breed in Australia or export to another country. Domestically we have an important role to play in introducing new owners to the fun and excitement of racehorse ownership.


When it comes to horseracing, Australia has it all.

The horses, trainers, jockeys, owners, breeders, administrators, prizemoney and passion.

It also has the ambition and the infrastructure to keep on developing one of the world’s most vibrant and lucrative racing industries.


Australian breeders produce thoroughbred horses equal to any in the world.

The proof is not only in the performance of generations of champions at home, but internationally.

Australia has also attracted the biggest names in international racing and breeding – Darley and Coolmore - to join a dynamic local breeding scene.


Australia is home to a competitive bloodstock sales scene with auctions held regularly in every state.

The biggest are those conducted by Magic Millions at the Gold Coast in January and by William Inglis and Son in Sydney each Easter.
