The added incentive of being Western Australian bred...

When looking to purchase a puppy or race dog, one factor that should be considered is whether or not it is Western Australian Bred. Any puppy registered in Western Australia is placed into the WESTCHA$E scheme, and the added bonuses for specific wins can provide a windfall for owners. The scheme was developed to encourage breeding within Western Australia, and to entice participants and newcomers to invest in locally bred stock. 

Western Australian Bred chasers are eligible for maiden, novice and city class race bonuses, and get the opportunity to compete in a host of rich WA Bred events throughout the year including:

  • WA Bred Country Cup
  • WA Bred Championship
  • “The Claude Powell”
  • Sandi’s Me Mum Memorial
  • “The Great Western”
  • The Sandgroper
  • “The Westbred”

The WESTCHA$E scheme has continued to develop over the past few years, and new owners should be aware that when purchasing a WA bred pup or race dog that there can be some significant bonuses attached to some of their wins.
