Aquis Announces $1M Bonus Scheme
Aquis Farm has announced a $1 million bonus scheme designed to support the stud's first season sire The Mission and the Queensland breeding industry, reports AAP. There will be 11 individual bonuses available to any 2YO sired by The Mission (Choisir-My Amelia, by Redoute's Choice) during the 2018 breeding season at Aquis Farm in the Gold Coast hinterland. The biggest bonus will be $1 million for any of The Mission's 2YO progeny who can win a Group 1 race, the Magic Millions Classic or the Inglis Millennium. Aquis will donate 10 per cent of any payment to thoroughbred or farming charities. "We have an obligation to look after those less fortunate than ourselves," said Aquis chief executive Shane McGrath. "At Aquis we are grateful to be part of a thriving industry that is in a position to give generously to those in need."
