Spendthrift Australia to partner with The Valley

November 11, 2021

Spendthrift Australia are proud to announce a new three-year partnership with Moonee Valley Racing Club, ahead of the commencement of the Friday Night Lights season and a return of crowds to the track.

Moonee Valley becomes the third Victorian race club Spendthrift have supported through racetrack and owner sponsorships, following on from Spendthrift Australia Park Werribee and Pakenham Racing Club.

“Moonee Valley is a fantastic metropolitan racetrack and we’re thrilled to be partnering with them to further extend our support of the Victorian thoroughbred industry, both now and into the future,” said Spendthrift Australia General Manager, Garry Cuddy.

Spendthrift’s founder, the late Mr. B Wayne Hughes, strongly supported the notion that grassroots breeders are the backbone of the industry and without them, his investment will be short-lived. The idea that the whole industry needs each other is the driving force behind the farm’s strategic investments.

“As it is with grassroots breeders on the breeding side of the industry, without the owners racing doesn’t happen and the majority of breeders are owners too,” said Garry.

“We want to give back to the Victorian industry and its community and we see this new partnership with Moonee Valley as another fantastic opportunity.”

The newly located Owners Room at Moonee Valley will be rebranded the Spendthrift Owners Room for the duration of the partnership, offering owners a relaxing space to network, celebrate and enjoy their raceday experience.
