If you would like to register for the new and improved QTIS scheme there is still time to do so.
The deadline has been extended until November 7.
The new scheme is a hybrid version of the previous QTIS and QTIS 600 schemes and delivers total benefits of $8.88m to eligible two AND three-year-olds.
Both Queensland bred and breed back eligibility will remain the only eligibility criteria.
To be eligible for the new scheme two payments are required.
The first payment by October 1 in the horse’s yearling year (WHICH HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 7th THIS YEAR) and the second by June 30, also in the horse’s yearling year.
Listed below is the payment structure for the payments required by November 7th, 2011.
·         Queensland bred – $350 + GST
·         Breed back – $900 + GST
Those yearlings where a payment has not been received by November 7th 2011 can still be eligible for the scheme.
As outlined below, there is a two tiered structure depending on whether the initial registration was undertaken, and whether the yearling is Queensland bred, or eligible via the breed back component of the scheme.

Bradbury’s Luck’s (pictured) talented daughter, Nuptse looks set for a Mlebourne Spring Carnival campaign.
Trainer Brian Wakefield hinted he would send the promising 4yo mare south if she performed well in Sydney – and she certainly didn’t disappoint.
Nuptse won the last at Rosehill, making it two wins from two starts this preparation.
Wakefield will now aim the mare at some Stakes races in Melbourne with the hope of keeping her impressive winning record flowing along.
Her racing career didn’t start until January 14 this year and since then she has certainly made up for being a late bloomer, with five starts for three wins.
It was a Queensland-bred quinella in Race 5 at Eagle Farm today.
Seek and Find (Sequalo) defeated Tycoon Tattoo (Tycoon Ruler) with a photo for third. Unfortunately Outstandingly just pipped Carry the Clubs (Bagger Vance) preventing a Queensland-bred trifecta.
Merlo Downs freshman sire El Nino is making a name for himself as a 2yo sire in the United States.
His first crop has hit the track and has already achieved Black Type with 8 runners for two winners, three place-getters and two Stakes placed.
On Friday, My Tee Time (4 starts 1 win, 1 second) won over 1200m and Senor Rain (5 starts 2 wins, 2 Stakes placed) led from barrier to box over 1600m at Santa Anita.

“I look forward to working with him.”
Mr Morris is expected to take up his position in late November when current CEO Peter McGauran steps down.
Mr Nolan thanked Mr McGauran for his hard work during his time in the postition.
“Peter took the TBA and Aushorse Marketing to another level and introduced a number of very important initiatives for the thoroughbred industry, I am sorry to see him go and wish him well for the future.”
