New Zealand is the best place on earth to breed and raise thoroughbreds. With lush pastures and a temperate climate, New Zealand has a natural advantage when it comes to all forms of farming – and raising horses is no exception. New Zealand bred racehorses are renowned for their quality and soundness and they adapt well to a range of racing environments around the globe.

NZ-breds have won five of the last 10 Hong Kong Derbys.
