Galloping genes: Equine Genetics in the Racing Industry

Galloping genes: Equine Genetics in the Racing Industry

Wednesday 21 October 2015.

Presented by Dr Natasha Hamilton, Sydney School of Veterinary Science, the University of Sydney.

Racing horses such as Black Caviar and Phar Lap capture our imaginations.

What makes them so special? And can their offspring display the same champion characteristics? Dr Hamilton investigates the genetics underlying not only racing performance, but also novel traits such as career length and susceptibility to certain diseases. 5.45pm – 6.45pm. Eastern Avenue Auditorium University of Sydney.

Join us for hands on activities in the foyer following the lecture.
