Returning for the fourth year, Dunstan Ex-Factor is a competition that showcases Thoroughbreds who have had less than 12 months sporthorse schooling since retiring from their intended career on the racetrack.

Selected Thoroughbreds compete in three of the six available classes and points accumulated across these classes determine the overall winner of Dunstan Ex-Factor. The classes provide riders with an opportunity to show a range of skills including jumping, dressage, off road and freestyle which makes for great viewing for spectators.

Each Thoroughbred competing is profiled in a dedicated programme which provides information about their breeding and race history. A wide range of Thoroughbreds are represented in the competition with previous competitors including mares and geldings, unraced horses through to steeplechasers, Group 1 winners and even horses who are still racing, 4-year-olds through to 12-year-olds and horses that have been produced by professional riders through to teenagers with their first off the track Thoroughbred.

Previous winners of the Dunstan Cup are:

2015 – Samantha Felton and Ricker Ridge Mystery Man (5yo gelding by Sakhee's Secret out of Mystery Creek)

2016 – Donna Edwards-Smith and DSE Sunset Pass (8yo gelding by Yamanin Vital out of Janet's Choice)

2017 – Dannie Lodder and Moneyshot (6yo gelding by Perfectly Ready out of Penny Arcade)

Beyond the Barriers NZ is a non-profit organisation whose purpose is to promote the versatility and suitability of retired racehorses as pleasure and sporthorses within New Zealand and is supported by a family of generous sponsors. These sponsors ensure that riders compete for a significant prize pool, with over $15,000 in prizes up for grabs over the three days of competition.
