FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

I start my column this month by thanking those of our members who voted in our recent election of directors which was a first for the Association. It gives me much pride that the Association continues to grow in leaps and bounds and that our members are keen to have a voice in our operations.

I would like to congratulate all elected directors (see separate item on Annual General Meeting) and to thank the unsuccessful candidates for their interest and support of the Association by standing as candidates in the election.

It also gives me great pleasure to confirm that former Director, Mr Michael Kissane, has been awarded Life Membership to the Association for his exceptional service to NSWROA.

Mr Kissane who served for just on 13 years during his two stints on the Committee, provided valuable counsel to the Committee. I extend my personal congratulations and thanks for the wonderful contribution he made to the Association.

Michael and Robyn Kissane

The Association continues to work tirelessly to advance the interests of our members. As I stated at the Annual General Meeting, a number of NSWROA initiatives have come to fruition in the past twelve months but sadly the Association did not receive the credit it so richly deserved. Nevertheless, the Committee will continue to “fight the good fight” on behalf of our members. We currently have a number of issues in train that are progressing well which hopefully I can inform you about next month.

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE

As any racehorse owner knows, there’s nothing more frustrating than having a horse accepted for a race meeting and then hearing the meeting has been called off because of bad weather.

Rain has had a huge impact on racing and on owners’ finances this season, and that can be demonstrated quite simply through the figures for BOBS bonuses.

By the end of May, 838 BOBS bonuses had been won, worth $5,665,000. After the deductions are taken out for the stallion nominator, trainer and Jockeys’ Association, that’s $4.5 million which has been paid to winning owners over and above the regular prize money. Which is wonderful!

However I was surprised to see that at the same time last year there had been 892 bonuses awarded, worth an additional $130,000. Why the fall in both number and value?

A quick check of the season’s fixtures showed that 54 race meetings had been washed out – and coincidentally, the number of BOBS bonuses was down by 54. Had those meetings not been hit by bad weather it’s quite likely as many as 80 BOBS bonuses would have been won, perhaps worth $300,000.

The good news is that June and July are historically the two months of the year when the largest number of bonuses are won, so, weather permitting, owners are in for a good finish to the season.

This is also the time of year for owners to make sure they enter their young horses for BOBS and BOBS Extra. By now many yearlings will have been broken in and their potential assessed.

The entries for both BOBS and BOBS Extra close on 1 September 2011, with a fee of $660 for BOBS, an additional $840 for BOBS Extra if you opt for that scheme as well. If you miss the deadline you’ll face a late entry fee for BOBS of $5500 and there’s no possibility of having your horse nominated for BOBS Extra.

Is BOBS Extra worth it? After the first 10 months of this season Racing NSW had paid out $605,000 for 87 BOBS Extra bonuses, for 4-year-olds winning over 1600 metres and longer. 19 of those wins were for maidens, so their owners’ patience was certainly rewarded.

As BOBS Extra grows season by season it will add more and more value to the older, middle distance or staying racehorses, extending their careers and strengthening competition in those events.

Finally, a reminder to anyone who bought a yearling this year: If it said “BOBS Eligible” in the catalogue, that doesn’t mean the horse is automatically nominated – the owner must still fill out the nomination form and pay the fee. By 1 September!

For further information please contact John Gatfield, BOBS Executive Officer, Racing NSW on telephone: (02) 9551-7574.

2011 RACING’S NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS

NSWROA is, once again in 2011, proud to be hosting Racing’s Night of Champions, the most prestigious charity award’s night in Australian racing.

Racing’s Night of Champions will be held in the Randwick Pavilion at Royal Randwick Racecourse on 11 August 2011 and NSWROA cordially invites you to join us for the evening.

With the theme of “The New Era in Racing”, this event will pay homage to the best New South Wales Racing has to offer in recognising the achievements of both horses and their humans.

This year NSWROA is proud to be supporting the Vincentian House KEEP Program, a Special Work of the St Vincent de Paul Society NSW as our charity of choice at Racing’s Night of Champions.

KEEP (Kids Engaged in Education Program) is underpinned by seven strategies that aim to break intergenerational cycle of poverty and disadvantage and offer a range of targeted support for children and young people who are staying at Vincentian House – a crisis accommodation and case management service for homeless families.

One of the many highlights of the night will undoubtedly be our feature entertainment which will be provided by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, Jimmy Barnes.

What can be said about Jimmy Barnes that hasn’t been said before? Regarded as the elder statesman of Australian rock ‘n’ roll, Jimmy Barnes has carved out the most successful solo career of any performer in Australian rock history - producing nine Number One albums. Jimmy works tirelessly for various charities, particularly those caring for children and disadvantaged people in the community. He continues to tour internationally and throughout Australia; his current album is ‘Rage and Ruin” recorded in the USA. Jimmy Barnes is a multi-platinum, multi-ARIA Award winning Artist and a bona fide Australian icon.

Racing’s Night of Champions is, without doubt, the best value night out you can have. For the low admission price of $198.00 per person you receive:

• a sumptuous 3 course meal
• fine wines and beverages; and
• feature entertainment by one of the biggest names in the Australian industry.

You will find it very hard indeed to get such value for money from any other event and by attending you are also assisting the Vincentian House KEEP Program.

So why not treat yourself to a great night out and at the same time show your support for Vincentian House.

In addition, in order to assist guests travelling to the function, NSWROA has arranged for a return bus service between Rosehill and Randwick.

For further information regarding the Racing’s Night of Champions, visit the NSWROA website www.nswroa.com.au or click here to view the latest flyer for the event.
