Dunstan Horsefeeds to partner Sires’ Stakes Fillies’ Series

Another heavyweight sponsor, Dunstan Horsefeeds, has been confirmed for the upcoming Sires’ Stakes Series. 

The Hamilton-based company will support the three-year-old fillies, following on from Woodland Stud’s recent announcement that it will sponsor the three-year-old colts and geldings. 

“Dunstan Horsefeeds has always viewed the Sires’ Stakes as a great innovation,” says Dunstan Horsefeeds director David Smith. 

The arrangement continues a long association with harness racing since the company’s inception 35 years ago. 

“Dunstan Horsefeeds has always been a proud sponsor and supplier of the New Zealand Standardbred Industry and we are only too happy to increase our involvement with the Sires’ Stakes; this is a great opportunity to give back to an industry that is a great supporter of our New Zealand brand,” says Smith.   

The series will start at Ashburton in November and continue through to the Group One Final at Alexandra Park on New Year’s Eve. 

The full schedule is:
