Victoria’s oldest commercial horse stud, Chatswood Stud are pleased to announce the implementation of the following agistment refund scheme:

If your mare misses in 2020, her agistment bill for the season will be discounted by 50%.


  • Mare resides at Chatswood for the 2020 season until at least November 30.
  • Mare is covered by either Reward For Effort or Inference.
  • The mare has either had a foal in the last three years or a maiden or having second season at stud
  • Agistment already paid from August 1 2020 will also be refunded by 50%.

We think it’s only fair that if a breeder has nothing to show for the season, they get something back, especially given some of the financial pressures we are all facing. Hopefully a small amount of security can help breeders continue what they love doing.

Reward For Effort is #1 in Victoria for winners this season, with 20 coming in the last month.

Meanwhile, Inference’s sensational first foals are are making a big impression on breeders. He is on track to cover a third successive book of over 100 mares.
