Indicative Production Costs to Breed & Prepare a Standardbred for the Yearling Sales

The following Table provides an indication of what it will cost to breed a Standardbred foal in New Zealand. Costs are intentionally set on the high side, in a situation where the broodmare owner has to pay top-end commercial rates for grazing and other services.  The Table excludes the price of a stallion service which can be obtained by referring to our current Stallion Register and individual stud websites.

This is a guide only and NZ Standardbred Breeders Association takes no responsibility for amounts quoted. All prospective breeders should do their own due diligence before making the commitment. Breeding costs can vary from region to region and year to year.
