Dear Breeder,

Thoroughbred Breeders Australia (TBA) would like to invite you to become an Associate Member free of charge in order to give grass roots breeders a greater say in the issues and policies affecting their industry.

TBA is the peak industry body recognized by all Governments to negotiate and act on behalf of Australia’s Thoroughbred breeders. We strongly believe that all Thoroughbred breeders have the right to fully participate in chartering the way ahead for the Thoroughbred racing and breeding industries. An industry body is only as strong as its membership and we look to you for your input and guidance.

The Australian industry faces many challenges and is under increasing pressure from recreational and entertainment competitors working to get a bigger share of the leisure and gambling dollar. Strength lies in numbers. Through increased representation of breeders, TBA will have greater influence with Federal and State Governments when seeking to influence decisions on quarantine, biosecurity, taxation, animal welfare, artificial insemination, gaming revenue and trade issues amongst many others. Moreover, TBA is in constant discussions with the sales companies representing the interests of vendors on issues such as x-rays, scoping, commission rates, marketing and a proposed code of conduct.

Your individual TBA membership carries no obligations and this offer in no way affects or replaces your current or future membership of the State organizations which provide their members with a variety of financial benefits including direct contact with relevant State offices to address matters of local concern.

Associate Members of TBA will also receive e-mail updates from us regarding our current activities.

All you have to do to take advantage of this free TBA Associate Membership offer is click on ‘membership application’ button below. We welcome your support and look forward to representing the best interests of all Members to ensure that the Australian breeding and racing industry continues to grow as an innovative and forward looking industry taking its place amongst the world’s best.

Yours sincerely,
