FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

I am very pleased to advise Members that Mr Peter Beer has joined the NSWROA Committee.

Mr Beer is the Chief Executive Officer of Patinack Farm, the racing and breeding empire of Mr Nathan Tinkler, who has invested millions of dollars to develop one of the leading commercial thoroughbred organisations in the country. Mr Beer joined Patinack Farm in December 2009 after some 22 years as a financial executive in the private and public companies of Kerry Packer.

With a lifetime interest and involvement in the thoroughbred industry, both locally and overseas, Mr Beer joins the NSWROA Committee to fill a casual vacancy following the retirement of Mr Michael Kissane.

NSWROA has been most fortunate to obtain the services of Mr Beer for the NSWROA Committee. His background in the finance sector and his great passion for racing will make a valuable addition to our Committee.

I would also like to take this opportunity to personally thank former Committee Member Mr Michael Kissane for his hard work and support during his tenure on the Committee. On behalf of my fellow Committee Members I wish Michael all the very best for the future.

With the expertise, experience and initiative of the likes of Max Whitby (Propex & STC), Laurie Macri (Macquarie Bank), Michael Inglis (Murrumbidgee Turf Club), John Vouris (Lawler Partners), Darren Farnham (Network 10), Narelle Anderson (Envirobank), Chris Keogh and now Peter Beer (Patinack Farm), the Association continues to grow in stature.

Mr Beer said “I am delighted to be a part of the Committee of the NSW Racehorse Owners Association and look forward to working with all participants in the industry”..

2010 RACING'S NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS

The countdown is on for the Racing Industry’s Night of Nights and the flagship event of the NSW Racehorse Owners Association, 'Racing's Night of Champions'.

As members would be aware the event is returning to The Grand Pavilion at Rosehill Gardens on Thursday 12 August 2010 for another magical night which is themed around “Celebrating 200 Years of Racing in New South Wales”.

As previous attendees will attest to, Racing’s Night of Champions is a great value night out. Not only do we:-

  • honour the best racing talent in New South Wales, including the Luxbet.com NSW Champion Horse of the Year and the Bart Cummings Medalist;
  • provide great entertainment;
  • have sumptuous food

but the night also supports Redkite – supporting children through cancer – to assist families at their most difficult times.

During the evening both a Monster Auction and a Silent Auction will be conducted. Without giving too much away about the night, hereunder are some of the amazing items that will feature in the Monster and Silent Auctions:

  • an incredible trip to Royal Ascot 2011 – the second home for champion Australian gallopers – courtesy of Emirates Airlines and Ambassador Travel Services
  • three nights accommodation at Laucala Island, Fiji – an island paradise and a destination dream – normally priced at US$4,000 per night this is the ultimate in luxury - courtesy of Travel The World and Laucala Island

  • a Dynasty of Kings limited edition print – created by one of Australia’s most experienced and prolific equine artists Lyn Beaumont, this print which features Sir Tristram, Zabeel, Octagonal & Lonhro, will appeal to both racing and breeding enthusiasts

The Silent Auction will also feature some wonderful prizes in the following categories: Accommodation, Art, Electronics, Horse Products, Jewellery, Memorabilia, Millinery and Technology, to name but a few.

There will also be a raffle with exceptional prizes conducted on the night and a “lucky door prize” will also be awarded.

I am pleased to advise that NSWROA has again arranged for a return bus service to the event for guests at a nominal fee. The bus will travel between Randwick and Rosehill and bookings for this service will be essential.

I’m sure the above items have well and truly attracted your attention and will have you racing to book your seat for the night.

What great results! Congratulations to all! Don’t forget to forward the names of your racehorses to the NSWROA office.

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE

We’re now at the start of the very busy BOBS nomination period, and in the course of July and August upwards of 3000 young gallopers will be nominated for BOBS and BOBS Extra.

If you are nominating your rising 2-year-old remember that there is no late entry for BOBS Extra – you must nominate the horse for both BOBS and BOBS Extra on the one form, at the same time!

The fee for BOBS is $660. The BOBS Extra fee – if you choose to enter that as well – is an additional $840, a total of $1500. You cannot enter BOBS Extra without nominating for BOBS.

The deadline is 1 September. If you miss that you’ll have to pay a $5500 late fee and forego any chance of being in BOBS Extra.

Please don’t wait until the last minute to get your nomination forms to us. We will be swamped with forms and faxes in late August so there’s less chance of a form going astray or being lost in fax congestion if you fill out the entry now. The form declares there will be no refunds – but we are prepared to make an exception if a horse paid up before the 1 September deadline has to be destroyed.

BOBS Extra bonuses will be won from 1 August as horses turning 4YO compete over 1600m and further. The Quirindi Jockey Club has programmed two 1600m races on Sunday 1 August so these will be the first eligible races. The first metropolitan BOBS Extra bonus is available on the Kensington track on Wednesday 4 August when the AJC has scheduled an 1800m Benchmark 70 handicap.

The wet weather in various parts of the State during June played havoc with race meetings and reduced the number of BOBS bonuses we paid out. There were 108 winners in June, 9 fewer than in the same month last year, and they were worth $762,500 in cash terms. By the end of June 1010 bonuses had been won, an increase of 117 on last season, with a cash value of almost $7m.

Not surprisingly Sheikh Mohammed leads the way among owners with 66 bonuses valued at $642,500.

No matter whether you’re an owner with as many horses in training as Sheikh Mohammed or with just one solitary 2YO, the BOBS bonuses add huge value and are worth every dollar in making ends meet!
