With just 20 pacing colts and 29 pacing fillies on offer to compete for a massive $350,00 in local prize money, you can see why the APG Brisbane sale has the reputation of the sale with the “Biggest Bang For Your Buck”. The news gets better for those locals looking at joining a club that values and appreciates all of its members!

Not only has the “Creek” ( formerly known as Albion Park ) come up with exciting new membership packages for 2021, If you become a member of ‘The Creek’ now,  your timing will be perfect.  With the APG Yearling Sale fast approaching on 31st January 2021, APG in conjunction with ‘The Creek’ and Racing Queensland are making the opportunity to buy on the day more appealing than ever.

Many are excited that the QBRED Incentive Scheme continues to reward participants with the distribution of over $3 million in QBRED bonuses and feature race stakes.  This QBRED Incentive scheme sees the first-win bonus set at $12,000 at any age (regardless of how many interstate wins they may have had), as well as a further $7,500 cash bonus for their first QLD win in a subsequent season.

In addition to this, anyone who is fortunate enough to secure one of the 53 yearlings going under the hammer, who is a current ‘Creek’ member, will go into the draw to win one of two $2500 vouchers towards their purchases made on the day.  Alternatively it can be used to make a further APG purchase within the following 12 months.

Once the hammer falls on the last lot of the day and the yearlings are loaded onto the transporter to head to their new home, the APG Sale Afterparty will kick off in ‘The Creek Bar’.

During this time, a draw will be conducted where two lucky member’s day will get even better.  Ideally the winners will still be at ‘The Creek Bar’ although there is no necessity to be present for the draw as the two winners will be notified directly.

If you are not already a member of ‘The Creek’, ensure that your name will go into the draw by visiting www.thecreek.com.au and applying for membership.  Only those who are financial members of ‘The Creek’ by 11.00am on Sunday 31st January 2021 and who purchase a yearling at the Brisbane APG Sale will be eligible for a chance to win a $2500 voucher.
