NSW Standardbred Owners Association
HARNESS RACING NEW SOUTH WALES - AUSTRALIA
The NSW Standardbred Owners Association (NSWSOA) is the official acccredited body which represents Standardbred Racehorse Owners in New South Wales (Australia).
Aside from promoting the interests of standardbred owners, the Association aims to encourage ownership of the standardbred racehorse by endorsing the benefits of being an owner and the methods of becoming one.
The NSWSOA is represented on all five Harness Racing NSW (HRNSW) Operational Committees as well as the Harness Racing Industry Consultation Group (HRICG), playing an important role in industry consultation and in delivering the perspective of owners to the HRNSW Board on all harness racing matters.
This website provides helpful information such as membership benefits, information on becoming a member and owning a harness racehorse, news and contact details.
The NSWSOA would like to thank its' generous sponsors and encourages its' Members to support them in kind.
NSWSOA Members Race Bonus Series
Unfortunately, due to COVID19, HRNSW has cut its' contribution (a NSW Owners Certificate for each NSWSOA Bonus Race Winner) from the NSWSOA Member's Bonus Race Series this year. But, we have been able to attract a new sponsor for the Series, in Australian Pacing Gold (APG).
With that sponsorship, APG have given the Association a $1,500 Credit Voucher to award to each Bonus Race Winner, to go towards the purchase and sustaining of a yearling at the 2021 APG yearling sales.
The NSWSOA will continue to contribute $500 cash to each Bonus Race winner.
As such, the total bonus attached to each NSWSOA Member's Bonus Race will be $2,000.
(Made up of the $1,500 APG Voucher plus $500 cash from the NSWSOA (No contribution from the Clubs this Series).
The New South Wales Standardbred Owners Association (NSWSOA) Bonus Race Series will be held between August through to November 2020.
