Sir Patrick Hogan’s services to the export sector have been acknowledged.  

He has been awarded the Exporters’ Champion award at the 2018 Air New Zealand Cargo Export New Zealand Awards. 

“Sir Patrick has been a true leader in the development of the New Zealand thoroughbred export market, setting the standards from which many vendors now aspire to,” said New Zealand Bloodstock managing director Andrew Seabrook, who accepted the award on Sir Patrick’s behalf.

“His significant sales achievements at Karaka under the Cambridge Stud banner have seen him sell in excess of $260 million in horses over the last 40-odd years with a considerable number having been exported to Australia, Europe and South-East Asia.

“There is no doubt he has played a significant part in making the New Zealand thoroughbred one of the most sought after on the planet.”

New Zealand Bloodstock also topped the shortlist at the awards, having achieved finalist status in the Best Large Business category. 

“We’re focused on delivering returns to the New Zealand thoroughbred industry, an area we are always looking to grow, and the export market plays a large part in that equation,” Seabrook said.

“Being a finalist for this award is a reflection of the service, performance, dedication and loyalty the team at NZB demonstrate to our customers on a daily basis and being recognised as an export leader is an exceptional endorsement for NZB and the wider thoroughbred industry.”
