TRENDS WE ARE SEEKING TO INFLUENCE

#thisfillycan campaign is seeking to influence

“By highlighting the significant opportunities available to fillies, and their overall earning potential, we hope to close the gap between the proportion of fillies and colts in training by positively changing the perceptions of breeders, owners and trainers to realise that fillies can be an excellent prospect on the racetrack, which can only benefit all corners of the industry.”
