The Australian Standardbred Breeders Association (ASBA) is a non-profit association formed in 1990 for the benefit of, and to promote, the standardbred industry in Australia.

ASBA is the peak national body for all standardbred horse breeders and represents all state standardbred breeders associations.

ASBA is responsible for producing The Australasian Standardbred Guide, which circulates annually, and TrackBred magazine, which is published on a quarterly basis.

The New South Wales and Victorian state standardbred horse breeders websites are similarly produced by the association.

ASBA is recognised by official industry bodies including Harness Racing Australia and all state bodies responsible for setting industry standards and regulations.

The association thus plays an important role in ensuring the best interests of standardbred horse breeders are maintained when in discussion with these official industry bodies.

Quarantine, bio-security, animal welfare, taxation, disaster relief and any other issues that directly affect the standardbred horse breeders industry on a national level are addressed by ASBA, who will attempt to develop strategies and minimise issues as soon as possible, for the benefit of the industry.

ASBA is involved in a variety of research projects and has a presence on various equine committees, such as the HRA Committee for Equine Breeding, Animal Welfare and Registration.

To ensure ASBA caters to the needs of Australia’s entire standardbred horse breeders industry the association is comprised of two representatives from each state.
