The promotion of horse racing schemes is a financial service regulated by the Corporations
Act and requires Triple Crown Bloodstock Pty Ltd (“Promoter”), as the holder of an Australian
Financial Services Licence (“Licence”), to provide you with this Financial Services Guide
(“FSG”) prior to it promoting an interest in a horse racing scheme to you.
This FSG is intended to inform you of certain basic matters relating to the services that the
Promoter may provide to you, including the services he is authorised to provide, how you will
pay for those services, how the Promoter gets remunerated and what to do if you have a
complaint. It is intended that this FSG should assist you in determining whether to utilise any
of the financial services that the Promoter is authorised to provide.
This FSG contains general information only and specific information relating to horse racing
schemes promoted by the Promoter is contained in the Product Disclosure Statement for
each scheme which is available from the Promoter upon request.
Who will be providing the financial service?
The Promoter holds the Licence in its own name and provides the financial services referred
to in section 3 of this FSG in its capacity as principal, and not as an authorised representative
of any other licensee.
The financial services referred to in section 3 of this FSG are provided either by the Promoter
itself or on its behalf by employees or authorised representatives engaged by it in accordance
with the Corporations Act.
The Promoter, as principal, is solely responsible for the financial services that it provides

AFS licensees are required to have adequate Professional Indemnity insurance or an
alternative arrangement approved by ASIC. The Promoter obtained Professional Indemnity

incorporates cover for all current and past employees of the promoter associated with this
promotion at time of registration.
