FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

Three days down and three days to go – it’s the halfway mark of the 2013 BMW Sydney Carnival with the Rosehill leg complete and Royal Randwick beckoning.

We have been very privileged indeed this year with the calibre of racing we have seen to date.  You just don’t think or see how it can possibly get any better each week, but somehow it does!

It is hard to summarise when there have been so many wonderful highlights from the first three weeks but how can you forget the two Group 1 wins of Peirro in the Canterbury Stakes and the George Ryder Stakes; or the Group 1 double for Appearance in the Coolmore Classic and the Queen of the Turf Stakes; the impressive triumph of It’s A Dundeel in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas; Overreach’s dominant win the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes and Fiveandahalfstar saluting in the Group 1 The BMW.

At this point I would like to congratulate NSWROA members on the success they have had to date at the carnival and indeed to all members who have had winners during March.  Our members’ winners listings which appear each month in the newsletter are constantly growing - so don’t forget to advise the names of your horses for your time “in the spotlight”.

This week we move to Royal Randwick for Day 4 of the Carnival, David Jones Australian Derby Day, an “all black day”, which features three Group 1 events - the time honoured Australian Derby, the Sires Produce Stakes and the Tommy Smith Stakes with the magnificent Black Caviar striving to maintain her unbeaten status. The excitement level will be extraordinary.

The following week is BMW Doncaster Day, Day 5 of the Carnival, with the famous mile, the Group 1 Doncaster the highlight on yet another blockbuster day of racing.

And concluding the Carnival on 27 April 2013 is Schweppes Sydney Cup Day which features four great Group 1 events with the highlight, of course, being the Group 1 Sydney Cup over 3200 metres.  As members are aware, this day is a very special day for the Association as we hold our annual Sydney Cup Day luncheon which is, without doubt, one of the best days you will have on a racecourse.  Bookings are now closing for the event – see item later in the newsletter regarding this.

To assist the public attending at Royal Randwick, the Australian Turf Club have produced a “Royal Randwick Pocket Guide” which includes a map of the precinct.  Click here to view same.

Speaking of excitement, were you there at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale last Tuesday to witness history in the making?  A new Australasian record price for a yearling was set when the half brother by Redoute’s Choice to Black Caviar and All Too Hard was knocked down for a cool $5 million.

Carnival time – there is nothing like it!  I look forward to seeing you at the track.

 

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

AUSTRALIAN EASTER YEARLING SALE REPORT – Part 1

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100
 

NSWROA Committee member, Mr Louis Mihalyka, of Laurel Oak Bloodstock, is attending the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale and has kindly prepared for the interest of members, the following preliminary report.

*   *   *   *   *  

The deadline for this month’s edition of the newsletter means that the report has to be prepared after Day 1 of the Sydney Easter Yearling Sale. Consequently a final summation will be included in next month’s edition of the newsletter, however, while the report covers only the one day, what a day it was.

Courtesy of Lot 131, Black Caviar’s half-brother by Redoute’s Choice, there was more pre-sale publicity leading into this year’s Easter Sale than I can recall in my 20-odd years involvement in thoroughbred sales. The build-up of interest was apparent well before the sale started yesterday. During the key inspection days of Sunday and Monday, the number of people looking was noticeably up, and it wasn’t just the volume of people but the faces you saw. The number of international buyers there, in addition to all the leading local trainers and agents, was a clear indication that this was going to be a strong sale.

Generally, the major Dubai and Quatari Royal families are only represented by agents, but on this occasion, several of the Sheiks well-known in international racing circles were now here in person, along with their entourages. In fact the introductions to farm managers included a lot more 'nice to meet you, Your Excellency' than the more traditional 'g'day mate'!

So, it was onto the first day of the sale, and, again, the number of people there was unprecedented. The Inglis carparks were full well before sale time, and you either had a long walk or had to use the shuttle bus service from the Randwick racecourse infield if you came by car.

The sale started in heavy rain, but that didn’t deter the buyers, with Lot 1 going to a single bid from Robbie Waterhouse for $600,000, and suddenly we were away. The pattern of solid prices continued throughout the day, with only the odd flat patch when prices went down or a number of lots were passed-in.

Leading up to Lot 131, it was apparent how the excitement was building, and ten to twenty lots beforehand people were already moving into the sale ring to jockey for positions, and grabbing seats or vantage points to watch Black Caviar’s little half-brother go through the sale ring. The opening bid on the colt was $2m, and the bids quickly increased in $500,000 increments, taking the bid to $4m. This was already $1m above the previous Australasian yearling sales record, and the bids now started to go up in $100,000 lots. It was an amazing situation where a couple of seemingly innocuous bids at a yearling sale would pay off many peoples’ mortgages several times over! But then, that is a good thoroughbred auction and what makes it so exciting.

Under the famous Newmarket figtree, BC3 Thoroughbreds were strong, while bidding from one of the alleyways was also strong. When BC3 went to $4.8m the bid from the alleyway was taken as $5m, but the bidder anxiously chopped it back to $4.9m, which then left the door open for BC3 to go again at $5m. The underbidder proved to be Adam Sangster, and cutting the $5m bid back was an unusual tactic, given that the amount seems a mere triviality in the big picture context. However, Adam no doubt had his reasons, and BC3 Thoroughbreds are now the owners of this famous horse.

A half-brother to Starspangledbanner by Fastnet Rock also entertained the big crowd that had gathered eight lots before Lot 131. This colt was subject to a spirited bidding duel before being purchased for $2.4m by British agent John Warren for a partnership involving Coolmore and the China Horse Club. Two other colts sold for over $1m, with John Warren paying $1.5m for another Fastnet Rock colt for the same ownership combination, while James Harron Bloodstock paid $1m for a Snitzel/La Bamba colt.

While the star lots received the major publicity, the overall sale statistics for the first day reflected the increased level of demand.

There were 173 horses offered, of which 127 sold, leaving an overall clearance rate of 73%. That is probably less than ideal because, while the high-profile lots were obviously well sold and received plenty of publicity, 27% of the horses offered did not find a new home, although the odd one will, no doubt, be sold over the next two days. The aggregate was $38.855m, which was up a staggering 41.7% on last year’s $27.426m. The average was also up by a massive 43.9% to $305,945, compared to $212,605 in 2012. The several high-priced lots obviously have a direct bearing on these latitude statistics. The most telling yardstick for a sale’s strength and depth, though, is the median, and the first day’s $200,000 median was up a hefty 25% on the 2012 median of $160,000.

It will be interesting to see how these figures stack up by the end of the sale, but, whatever happens, they will remain up on 2012, reflecting the healthy demand for high-quality bloodstock.

Industry predictions of likely prizemoney increases and the re-opening of the newly-developed Randwick, right in the middle of what is an extremely exciting Autumn Racing Carnival, have all seemed to combine to make racehorse ownership even more attractive, which, in turn, has flowed through to the sale results.

One very relevant aspect of the increased sale prices from the international buying bench is the indication that many of these high-profile purchases will remain in Australia to be trained, which is great for the local industry. The final sale statistics will be included in next month’s newsletter.

RACING HISTORY AT IT’S BEST


Black Caviar winning the 2013 Lightning Stakes taken from high in the Hill Stand.

Our good friend and NSWROA member, Mr Graham Caves, has just returned from a sojourn to Melbourne and has kindly prepared for the interest of members the following item with accompanying photographs.

* * * * *

If you are a racing tragic, collector or just interested in racing history, Melbourne is the place to go.

Apart from being a great city it has opportunities aplenty to whet your appetite for racing.

In the Victorian State Library they have an excellent collection of racing books, including several rare volumes seldom seen. Photocopying in the rare book room is not allowed but digital photography is, so it is possible to view and record some of these for your collection. Some are so rare that you cannot photograph them. These are available on the library website and can be printed.

At the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Champions – Australian Racing Museum has re-located its display of wonderful racing artifacts and memorabilia, including Carbine’s skeleton and the moving hologram of him walking behind it. The museum has closed its Federation Square display and while the new permanent exhibition, in the National Sports Museum at “the G” is much smaller, it contains many treasures.

Many many more items belonging to the ARM are housed at Flemington and some off-site locations but inspection is by appointment only and it is necessary to seek availability of any items to view.

The VRC Library is nearby and it has a wealth of information, books and items of interest. Again it is necessary to speak to library staff to check availability and times for viewing but it is a helpful friendly service that is provided.

Separate still, is the VRC Heritage Centre. This is open on racedays but tours can be booked on other days. They presently run at 10.30 a.m. and 2.00 p.m. daily at Flemington – depending on demand. The tour involves a tour guide to explain the items on display, a short video about Australian racing history and a walk through passages containing fascinating racing displays of paintings, trophies, silks, books etc. Then you are taken into the course for a look at the Walk of Fame (Melbourne Cup winners names inlaid into the entrance path, a la Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in the USA), you see the statues of famous racing icons such as Phar Lap, Makybe Diva and Bart Cummings and the amazing feeling of standing in Carbine’s original stable stall. Saved from demolition by the VRC and re-erected in the heritage precinct. Further on, you get to stand on the hallowed grass of the Flemington straight in front of the winning post and visit the jockeys’ room and other places of interest. It all takes about an hour and a half, depending on how many questions you ask.

 


The Makybe Diva statue at Flemington .

Melbourne is still the Nation’s capital for second-hand book shops and old wares shops and the best place to find racing memorabilia in Australia.

To combine sightseeing with racing history you can visit the magnificent old pile, Werribee Park. Even though it is only a half hour from the city, make it a day trip. There is so much to see and the grounds are breathtaking. Not a lot of racing memorabilia remains from the era when the owners, the Chirnside family, were the most prominent owners in Victoria but there is a room where the gleaming gold Geelong Cup of 1878 is on display as well as a set of the famous Chirnside colours - blue, black cap - as worn by their Melbourne Cup winner Haricot in 1874.

 


The Chirnside family colours as worn by Haricot to win the Melbourne Cup of 1874.

Out at Bundoora Park is a well kept secret. Bundoora Park was a famous stud farm in the 1870s owned by Samuel Gardiner. It had a remake and revival in 1899 when John Smith built the still standing homestead. It’s open for inspection but check the times, everyone tells you a different time – management please note. Apart from the homestead, about a kilometre away, the stud buildings still standing, such as the stallion barns and stud groom’s cottage are all within Cooper’Settlement, a commercially run heritage village. When John Smith ran Bundoora Park one of the greatest sires Australia has known was a resident – Wallace – son of Carbine. His grave, and that of Shadow King, the tough old warrior of six Melbourne Cups, four times placed, is still there and a display board of their deeds. Shadow King is there because he became a police horse and Bundoora Park was in later years the police horse training academy in Victoria.

 


Inspecting the graves at Bundoora Park.

Melbourne, of course, conducts a race meeting each Saturday and they do it better than anyone else. Usually the fields are well contested and graded and most importantly competitive, allowing for strong betting markets.

Go to the races on a feature day and get your fill of the star gallopers and then follow that up with a visit to Living Legends out at Greenvale, near Tullamarine Airport. There the retired champions live and are cared for and it is open for inspection. You can see many old time stars of the turf and give them a pat more often than not. Some come and go. They go off to do a star turn at a racecourse somewhere, lead out a field for a race they won in their prime or they go back to their owners for a while and return. Horses there right now are Apache Cat, Better Loosen Up, Might and Power, Silent Witness, Doriemus, Fields of Omagh, Efficient, Rogan Josh, Zipping, Brew and more.

As I said, Melbourne is the place for a racing tragic.

 

RETRAINING DEMONSTRATION DURING SCONE HORSE FESTIVAL – 18 MAY 2013

The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Program has been invited to perform a demonstration on Saturday 18th May, during the 2013 Scone & Upper Hunter Horse Festival which will take place over 3rd – 19th May.

Scott Brodie will be conducting a retraining demonstration to highlight the Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Program and its efforts to retrain and re-home thoroughbred racehorses at the conclusion of their career.

Horses from the program will be put through their paces for the audience to gain an insight into the rehabilitation process, while Scott also explains how the Program has been so successful to date, using the inmates at nearby St Heliers Correctional Facility as part of a two-pronged rehabilitation process.

The Demonstration will take place at the sale yards at White Park from 10am – 12pm prior to the final race day of the Scone Cup Carnival.

For more information visit www.nswtrt.org.au or nswtrt@racingnsw.com.au.

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE

Update by Ben Flores, Media Officer, Racing NSW

It’s sale time again and by the time this column reaches you the famed Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale will be over for another year.

No doubt many of you had been to the sale, and even a few of you would have purchased a yearling or two.

As expected, Lot 131 the half-brother to Black Caviar and All Too Hard created a storm when he went for the record breaking price of $5 million.  While many were caught up in the spectacle of the Redoute’s Choice x Helsinge colt, the future owners of him will be thankful that he’s BOBS eligible.

A quick scroll through the catalogue will confirm that being BOBS eligible is, along with good breeding, a very desirable feature – and there’s a good reason why.

For the month of March, BOBS bonuses amassed $4.8 million with the total for BOBS Extra bonuses up to $872,500.

On the point of BOBS Extra, it would be remiss not to mention that the terms have changed for horses foaled from 2011.  For BOBS 2013, BOBS Extra bonuses will be paid on races in distance of 1800m or more.

Also, stallion nominations close on June 30, so if you’re looking to nominate, you’ve got a few months left – but get in quick so as to avoid paying a late nomination fee.

 

REMINDER:  2013 ANNUAL RACING FRATERNITY MASS

A reminder that the 2013 Annual Racing Fraternity Mass will be conducted this Sunday 14 April 2013 at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church, 4 Roma Avenue, Kensington.  The Mass will commence at 11.00 am.

The Racing Mass is attended by all denominations and by people who are representing all sections of the racing industry, and is offered for the well-being of the racing industry as a whole and everyone is welcome.
