The newly formed Thoroughbred Breeders Research & Development Panel held a Research Forum in Sydney on 29 Nov 2017. Equine research organisations from around Australia and industry were invited to present their capabilities, current projects and future ideas to the Panel who are in early stages of preparing a strategic plan. It was truly an honor for Horse SA to be invited to present. The session was also attended by Tom Reilly, CEO of Thoroughbred Breeders Australia and Barry O’Farrell, CEO of Racing Australia (ex NSW Premier). South Australia was also represented by the University of Adelaide Equine Health and Performance Centre, while the Appleton Institute based at Wayville also was highlighted in Central Queensland University’s presentation.
