New Kiwi Series A Boost For NZ Industry

Tuesday, 17th September 2019

The managing director of NZB, Andrew Seabrook, believes the new summer Triple Crowns (see above) will provide a vital and timely boost to the New Zealand industry. “In a time of stagnant prizemoney, I’m sure this announcement will be welcome news for stakeholders. I would like to particularly thank NZTR for its support, along with the Auckland Racing Club, Waikato Racing Club, and Wellington Racing Club, who have all contributed financially. The Cambridge Jockey Club is also likely to confirm their support early this week.” He added, “NZB Insurance has been a significant sponsor of New Zealand racing, so thanks go to our hard-working insurance team and our very supportive underwriters in the UK.” New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing’s chief executive Bernard Saundry has also enthusiastically welcomed the concept. “We are delighted to partner with New Zealand Bloodstock Insurance on the Triple Crown Series,” said Saundry. “The series will be a fantastic addition to the 19/20 racing calendar. We appreciate the support New Zealand Bloodstock provide to thoroughbred racing in New Zealand and their innovative thinking with concepts such as this will continue to make a significant difference to our industry.”
