About the Magazine


New Zealand Thoroughbred is a glossy bi-monthly magazine with a readership of over 15,000* nationwide including owners, trainers and breeders plus selected TABs and leading Australian trainers and studmasters.

Published by Whorl Media Ltd, the magazine was launched in 2006 to fill the gap in the market for news and stories about not just the horses but also the people surrounding them.

It is distributed to a unique free subscription database providing advertisers the largest readership of any thoroughbred publication in New Zealand and features human interest stories, industry news and a splash of entertainment.

Enjoyed by those with even a mild interest in the thoroughbred industry, it satisfies a nation still strong in magazine readership so will always be available in hard copy for our readers’ on-going enjoyment and referral.
