WA Breeding Industry
The breeding industry in Western Australia has continued to improve the quality of both stallions and broodmares in recent years. In the 2009 breeding season over 2,535 mares from Western Australia were returned to the Australian Stud Book while over 92 stallions were returned for the 2010 breeding season. The introduction of stallions with some of the world’s best and most sought-after bloodlines has been a feature in the WA breeding industry in recent years.
Western Australia has consistently had sires in the Australian top 100 sires listings by stakes earnings with names like Scenic, Oratorio, Danetime, Bletchley Park, Danasinga, Blackfriars, Key Business and Hurricane Sky along with many other sires from the last decade.
The breeding industry in Western Australia has worked hard for many years to promote itself into markets such as South-East Asia and, more recently, South Africa. As a result, buyers from these regions feature prominently at the major yearling sales and give local breeders opportunities to sell to new clients.
