ABOUT US

  • The Australian Standardbred Breeders Association (ASBA) was established in 1990 as the Peak National Body of State Breeders Associations.
     

  • ASBA is a non-profit industry Body established for the benefit of the Standardbred Breeding Industry.
     

  • ASBA is comprised of one (1) Representative Member from each State, who has State Voting Rights for meetings and governance.  At the 2013 AGM, BOTRAs from South Australia, Queensland and Tasmania were also admitted to Membership.
     

  • The Executive Group is comprised of a President (John Coffey– WA), Vice-President (David Hayes - TAS), Treasurer (Howard King – WA) and Secretary (Gary Newton-SA).

  • ASBA is recognized by Harness Racing Australia and all State Controlling Bodies as the National Breeding Industry Body. It is currently funded by contributions by State Controlling Bodies on a pro-rata basis, linked to the quantum of foaling numbers in each State.  
     

  • ASBA takes a leadership role on issues of national significance, such as Quarantine, Bio-security, Animal Welfare, Taxation, Disaster relief (flood, drought etc.) and other matters relevant and advanced by State Breeding Associations for their participants at the National level.
     

  • ASBA contributes as a Member on the HRA Committee for Equine Breeding, Animal Welfare and Registration. It also participates on Task Forces and Working Groups on matters related to Breeding, for example on Artificial Breeding on issues relating to Semen Transportation and Embyro Transfer etc.

  • ASBA Delegates maintain regular teleconferences/phone, email contact to conduct business. In addition, “face to face” contact occurs annually at ASBA’s Annual General Meeting, with the venue rotated between the States.
