property Landsdowne Park, agistment and sales prep operation Seaton Park, breaking-in business Pertab Bloodstock and agistment newcomer Sanderston Park have come on board with Rich Hill to give the day its unique identity.
‘‘ Matamata Bloodstock Day is aimed at achieving several goals,’’ says Mr Thompson. ‘‘A strong racing industry is important, so supporting the local racing club is a concrete way for all five sponsors to make a contribution.
‘‘ The sponsorship group realise a lot of their core business comes from local thoroughbred investors such as breeders, owners and trainers, so the day is designed to thank them and also provide information as to the range of bloodstock services they provide.
‘‘The concept is a reflection of this. From conception, foaling and weaning through to breaking, pretraining and spelling this group of sponsors can cater for all bloodstock requirements.’’
