WOW – Racing’s Night of Champions – what a night!!

I admit I am biased on this issue but who could blame me?

It makes me very proud indeed as the Dinner Chairman of this fantastic event to see the awards presentation televised live to an international audience via our exclusive media partner Sky Racing on Sky Racing World. This is but one indication of the recognition given to this prestigious event.

Damien Leith, put simply, was outstanding. He has an incredible talent that draws the crowd into a spell you do not want to escape from. Take my tip, if you haven’t seen him perform live I suggest you do so as soon as you get a chance – you will love it.

So why is Racing’s Night of Champions so good? A few reasons come to mind. Firstly it is the people - the participation of the award nominees when their names are announced certainly adds to the wonderful atmosphere. And of course, there are the people behind the scenes that go that “extra yard” to ensure that guests will never forget the experience of attending Racing’s Night of Champions.

I extend my sincere gratitude to Pauline Lamb (our event manager) and her team at Infinity MC, the incredible teams from SKY Racing and Infinity Media and Communications, Leanne Zalapa and her team at the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation and Sharon Hunt, our Executive Officer, who I cannot thank enough for her dedication to the success of this event.

My thanks also to our sponsors and prize donors for their support of this wonderful function and I look forward to their participation again in 2013.

As you are aware there has been some controversy concerning the results of the awards presented on the night. Let me say first and foremost, the awards presented on the night are not the result of a popularity contest. Winners are awarded based on a points system which is available on our website for all to see well in advance of the event. The results are fair and square.

I would like to take this opportunity to again congratulate all of the award winners but in particular the Coghlan family on the success of Streama on the night. Streama who collected three awards, has been somewhat overlooked in the press coverage post event. Both bred and raced by the Coghlan family, Streama is a most deserved winner and we wish her connections all the very best with her for the coming season.

On behalf of our Members, NSWROA is grateful for the sponsorship and support of Luxbet.

Other awards to be presented included the George Moore Award (Hugh Bowman), the Theo Green Award (Chad Schofield) and the Sydney Strapper of the Year (Skye Smalley).

Damien Leith, our wonderful feature artist for the evening, had the large audience entranced during his first set with his rendition of Hallelujah. He returned later in the night and tantalised our eardrums with a repertoire that left guests begging for more.

NSWROA President, Mr Ray McDowell said “on behalf of the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation and NSWROA, I would like to thank everyone for attending this incredible event which showcases the very best of the NSW thoroughbred industry. My thanks also to our sponsors – we greatly appreciate your support. Congratulations to all winners and I look forward to seeing you all again in 2013 at Racing’s Night of Champions.”

The NSW Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Trust (TRT) will receive a much needed hand from the Tooheys New Crew and NSW Origin Legends at their stabling facilities at Canterbury Racecourse in September.

Headed by rugby league legend Paul ‘The Chief’ Harragon, the Tooheys New Crew is a team of skilled tradies who are on the road helping communities and mates complete local building projects. When the Crew heard about the opportunity to help out such a worthy cause, they jumped at the chance.

Established in 2011, the NSW Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Trust assists in the safe rehabilitation and the rehoming of former NSW thoroughbred racehorses at the conclusion of their racing career by raising industry funding, sponsorship and donations from the broader community in support of Racing NSW’s not-for-profit Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Program.

From the 3rd to 7th (excluding the 5th) of September, the Crew aims to build an undercover dressage arena next to the Program’s stabling facilities at Canterbury racecourse so that the Thoroughbreds may be trained year round, irrespective of bad weather. The Crew will also assist with wet weather issues and drainage at the stables, along with a general touch up and repairs of the existing facilities.

Local volunteers who are over 18 are needed to lend a hand with the project, additional tradesmen are also required to assist with the building process – those interested can email

Paul Harragon feels that this is a great example of the kind of favours the Tooheys New Crew is doing to create a lasting, positive impact on Aussie communities. “What I love about this project is the fact that these guys have recognised a problem and banded together as a community to fix it. It’s stories like this that The Crew love to get involved with,” Harragon said.

The completion of the project and the official handover will occur on the 7th of September. It will involve an open day at the Canterbury facilities, demonstration of the horses in training and the chance for members of the public to learn more about the Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Program and to purchase horse graduates.

The BOBS and BOBS Extra closing date of Saturday 1 September is looming, but there are still a few precious days left for you to place your nominations.

If you do miss out on the closing date for BOBS not all is lost as there is still a chance to nominate late, though this will attract a hefty fee, so it’s best to get in early.

With 154 BOBS stallions listed, and $7.6million paid last season from 1131 bonuses won during the 2011-12 racing season, it becomes clear that using BOBS stallion is a sound move.

And if you’re a breeder who intends to eventually sell your mare’s progeny, it makes sense to use a BOBS nominated stallion given the increased attention a BOBS-nominated horse attracts.

The 2011-12 BOBS season finished with the Coolmore based stallion Fastnet Rock taking out the honours with $360,000 in total bonuses for the season.

The Danehill stallion’s stakes winners in Australasia last season included: Atlantic Jewel, Mosheen, Sea Siren, Planet Rock, Rock ‘N’ Pop, Foxwedge, Smart Missile and Lone Rock.

It’s been a solid year for the leading BOBS sires with the news of champion sire Redoute’s Choice shuttling to France for the first time.

The two-time champion sire of Australia will head to France in 2013 where he will stand in the Aga Khan’s stable for a fee of approximately AUD 83,000.

There is a plethora of BOBS nominated stallions such as Lonhro, Fastnet Rock and Choisir, so in order to make the best decision about which stallion to use, Racing NSW has compiled the BOBS 2015 Sire Guide which will be available early September.

The official magazine for the Racing NSW Breeder Owner Bonus Scheme, the guide lists a selection of the current crop of sires as well as information about how both schemes work.

To get your copy of the 2015 BOBS Sire Guide please email Bev Ritzau at or phone (02) 9551 7605.

A number of key redevelopment milestones have been achieved during the last few weeks with the labour force increasing to over 220 people.

Demolition of the Paddock Stand is complete and excavation and foundation works have made way for the basement slab to be poured. Structural columns have been installed allowing the construction of the ground floor to commence.

Most of the demolition work of the QEII Stand is complete and major ground works continues for the horse, pedestrian and service tunnels.

Lift shaft construction has commenced in both stands and the Theatre of the Horse.


Have you recently moved, changed your postal address or obtained an email address? If so, it would be greatly appreciated if you could contact the office in order for our records to be updated.

Yours in Racing
