A Must Attend

International Thoroughbred Breeders Federation Congress

ITBF-300-BLACKCape Town will play host to the International Thoroughbred Breeders Federation Congress which will be held from 6 to 12 January 2017.

Leading international and local industry players are expected to attend the International Thoroughbred Breeders Federation meeting.

The federation, founded in 1950, is the global body of thoroughbred breeders and is growing in stature and influence – as shown when it succesfully lobbied to overturn the IATA rule on travel of pregnant mares and is also in the process of gaining observer status at the OIE.

They meet every 18 months and it will be exciting news and a boost that South Africa will act as a host in the midst of the Cape Summer Of Champions Season.

The agenda includes open forums. with the international speakers discussing various topics of importance to the thoroughbred breeding and racing industry and an invitation has been extended to all stakeholders to get involved.

“It is an opportunity for us to share knowledge and promote the South African thoroughbred industry to the rest of the world, and we would love to see everybody there. We look forward to showing the visitors the best of our thoroughbred industry,” said TBA Chairlady Susan Rowett in a communication to breeders.
