I know that I am repeating myself on this particular topic, but what a fantastic event Racing’s Night of Champions is!!

Yes, I readily admit that I am biased on this issue but who could blame me?

It makes me very proud indeed as the President of the Association 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.

Tom Burlinson, simply marvellous!  What an entertainer this man is!  He made me want to get up and dance, which I can’t because of my bad knee, so that just goes to prove the power of the “spell” he has on a crowd.  Take my tip, if you get a chance to see him perform again, just do it.

Racing’s Night of Champions is a very special night indeed.  A wonderful atmosphere abounds in the room from the excitement of the award nominees when their names are announced to the happy winners when accepting their awards.

And let’s not forget 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 gratitude to NSWROA Committee Member Julia Ritchie (our Dinner Chair), 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, for her dedication to the success of this event.  I know first hand the incredible amount of work that goes into the event – so my sincere thanks to all.

My thanks also to our Racing’s Night of Champions sponsors and prize donors for their support and to all guests attending the event.

The Grandstand of the Greyville Track on Durban July Raceday

NSWROA Committee member, Mr Louis Mihalyka, of Laurel Oak Bloodstock, made the trip to South Africa for the Durban July on 6 July 2013 and has kindly prepared for the interest of members, the following item.

*   *   *   *   *  

I had the pleasure of attending South Africa’s biggest race meeting, the Durban July, on 6 July 2013.

We took a group of Laurel Oak clients on a South African tour following our visit to Royal Ascot, and a wonderful tour concluded at Greyville Racecourse for South Africa’s biggest race, which was conveniently timed at two weeks after Ascot concluded.

Similar to the Melbourne Cup Carnival now, it is a ticket-only affair, with a sold-out crowd of just over 50,000 people attending.

Greyville is a track around 2600m in circumference, triangular in shape. A sharp turn out of the home straight heads off into a long back straight leading away from the home straight, and then the next turn is another straight run down the side leading back to the home straight, which is around 450m in length. The far corner is 1400m from home, so there are good long straight runs, but you still don’t want to be wide around the corners as you will cover plenty of extra ground.

Greyville races the Sydney way of going, but Durban July Day can be likened to a mini-Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day. A five-storey high stand runs from around the 200m mark past the winning post so that the far end of the stand looks up the straight. The centre field is full of temporary marquees cramming as many people into the track as possible.

Like our own carnivals, it is very much a party atmosphere, and is well and truly South Africa’s biggest race day. The main race, the Vodacom Durban July, is a 2200m open handicap. Highlighting the fact that South Africa is considerably cheaper in all respects across the board is the fact that this feature race runs for an impressive-sounding R3,500,000, which is around AUD380,000, with the winner receiving the equivalent of around AUD220,000.  While South Africa has produced some very good sprinters internationally, their biggest races and, indeed, their biggest stallion-making races, are middle distance events, of which the Durban July is one.

The race was won by Heavy Metal, a 16/1 pop that was raced by the same interests as the top-weight of last year’s favourite, Pomodoro.

While the race itself is a staying event, so is the day. There were 12 races scheduled for the meeting, starting at 11:25am and concluding over eight hours later at 7:50pm. Due to heavy rain two days before, the first two races were abandoned to protect the track for the bigger races with that announcement having been made over 24 hours before the meeting. That left ten races for what was still a marathon day that had some of the ladies on our tour looking for a rescue bus at about 6pm.

But the day’s festivities did not conclude at 7.50pm with the tenth race. Following that race there is a traditional, and sanctioned, streak down the home straight where around 200 predominantly young people in various states of undress (from partial to total) ran and frolicked down the home straight, ignoring the fact that it was actually a cool winter’s night in Durban.

The show still wasn’t over as a fireworks display followed, and once that concluded there was no urgency to leave the track as music started, and the second half of the Super Rugby game between the local Sharks team and the Bulls from Pretoria was televised live on the big screens.

The popularity of rugby in South Africa meant that we Aussies were able to watch the second half of the disappointing third and deciding test between the Wallabies and the British & Irish Lions earlier in the day.

While we weren’t familiar with the horses, it was high-quality racing as the ten races included four Group Ones, a Group Two, a Group Three, a Listed race, two non-black-type races, and a R$1m sale-related race called the KZN Yearling Sale Million. The non-black-type races were running for a modest AUD13,000 total prizemoney.

Glyn Schofield rode at the meeting, and there was also a sprinkling of Australian breeders, shoring up connections with their South African agents who are regularly seen in Australia.

While the grandstands were expansive, they were certainly not modern, with the buildings akin to Rosehill and Randwick grandstands in the 1980s.

All in all, it was a truly worthwhile race meeting with a great enthusiasm from the crowd, well-organised entertainment, and highly-competitive racing with excellent viewing facilities

Some Happy Connection “match colours” with their Jockey

The National Jockeys Trust (NJT) was established to provide financial assistance to jockeys and their families, especially where such needs arise through serious injury, illness or death of a jockey.

To help raise awareness of the NJT, the Trust will be conducting their annual raceday luncheon this year at Royal Randwick on Saturday 7th September 2013 in the Ballroom on the 2nd floor of the grandstand. Please click here for further details or visit the National Jockeys Trust website



Hereunder for the interest of members are some recent industry items:

New Integrity Measure
The Australian Racing Board (ARB) has introduced a new rule banning the stomach-tubing of a horse on the day of its race or during one Clear Day prior to the day of the race. One Clear Day means a 24 hour period from 12.01am to 12 midnight. In other words, a horse engaged on a Saturday cannot be stomach-tubed (or any application of a naso-gastric tube) from 12.01am on the Thursday night.

“At present a horse can be tubed up to 24 hours before its race which can create a grey area and an element of uncertainty. The ARB believes it is in the interests of all concerned for there to be a definite and enforceable cut off time. There is no possibility of a horse returning an elevated reading on race day if the one Clear Day has been adhered to by trainers” ARB Chief Executive Peter McGauran said.  

Mr McGauran said that lengthy and thorough veterinary advice was obtained which concluded that there was no clinical or welfare reason to tube a horse the day before race day.

“Vets from all Principal Racing Authorities concluded that Australia had developed a culture of over reliance or over use of tubing which is out of step with world’s best practice notwithstanding the need for country trainers to travel long distances in hot weather. If a horse is so dehydrated that it must be stomach-tubed and can’t be managed with electrolyte pastes or an IV drip, it clearly should not race and should be allowed to recover” Mr McGauran said.

Mr McGauran said that the rules would exempt alkalinizing agents contained in commercial feeds or electrolyte supplements after trainers raised concerns as to inadvertent elevated levels of the plasma total carbon dioxide (TCO2).

“There will be a negligible effect on TCO2 if trainers feed their horses according to manufacturers’ recommendations for normal daily use” Mr McGauran said.

Mr McGauran said the new rule would commence on the 1st of September and would bring clarity, certainty and predictability to the situation.

Racing NSW upgrades website features
Racing NSW has undertaken a major upgrade of its website  After conducting a series of focus groups and surveys of participants and fans of Thoroughbred racing, Racing NSW has redesigned a number of key areas.  The new look website now includes better form information from nominations to results. This includes horses’ full racing history, segmented wet track performances and win and place performances.  A redesigned homepage with a simplified layout has made information easier to find and is combined with a new search feature that enables a fast track to any horse, trainer or jockey’s recent performance record.  In a step towards greater automation, some participant forms can now be completed online while many forms are now linked to a credit card payment gateway, allowing simpler payment procedures.

Conflict of Interest and Inside Information
The Board of Racing NSW, in reviewing the recent More Joyous Inquiry, has taken action to ensure that the thoroughbred racing industry has in place the appropriate Rules dealing with the issues of conflict of interest and inside information.  The confidence of the public and racing participants in the integrity of racing is a paramount objective of the Board of Racing NSW.  Accordingly, Racing NSW has introduced the attached Local Rules 110A and 110B dealing with inside information and conflicts of interest.

In introducing these Local Rules, Racing NSW has been conscious of persons’ individual rights and the need to adhere to the Anti-Discrimination Law. First and foremost, persons must be treated as individuals and their rights must be respected.  However, the integrity of thoroughbred racing is fundamental to the multi-billion dollar thoroughbred racing industry which has over 50,000 participants in New South Wales.  These Local Rules were drafted with the assistance of Senior Counsel specialising in anti-discrimination and administrative law in order to ensure that they do not discriminate against any individuals or class of persons.  They are consistent with the protocols in place in the corporate world and are intended to ensure that the thoroughbred racing industry has the best practices in place to maintain the confidence of racing participants and the public in the integrity of racing.   They also complement the Cheating at Gambling provisions in the Crimes Act 1900.  Racing NSW will submit a proposal to the Australian Racing Board for these Rules to be adopted on a national basis.  In the meantime, Racing NSW considers it critical that the proper Rules and procedures are in place in New South Wales, hence the adoption of these Local Rules.



The Association has continued it’s commitment to support our country colleagues, by again sponsoring the NSW Racehorse Owners Association Maiden Handicap over 1600 metres at beautiful Coffs Harbour on Wednesday 31 July 2013.

The event was taken out by Summer Evening (Casino Prince-Heavenly Night (USA)) who is owned by V Oldfield, G Barker, M Burns, B Counihan, D Costello, Dr A Gay, S Priestly, J Robinson, L Smith and C Oldfield from Queen’s Charge with Six Foot in third position.  Summer Evening was trained by NSWROA member Joe Janiak.

Wednesday 31st July was Day 2 of the 2013 Carlton MID Coffs Harbour Cup Carnival.  The carnival was held over a three day period commencing on Sunday 21st July St Augustine’s School Centenary Raceday, continuing on Wednesday 31st July Cabcharge Sportsman’s Raceday and concluding on Thursday 1st August with the 2013 Carlton MID Coffs Harbour Gold Cup Day.

The winner of the feature race of the Carnival, the Carlton MID Coffs Harbour Gold Cup, for the second year in succession was Pepperwood (Easy Rocking-Rhianna Louise) who is trained by Liam Birchley.    Single Spirit and Prince of Capers took out the minor prizes.

Update by Ben Flores, Media Officer, Racing NSW

The 2013-14 racing season is officially here and that means owners of two-year-olds have just one month from August to nominate their horses for BOBS and BOBS Extra.

Entries for both schemes close on September 1.

BOBS Extra is an exciting extension to the bonus scheme which took effect from 1 August 2010, allowing nominated horses to win bonuses of up to $20,000 by winning events over 1800 metres and longer, from the day the horse turns 4YO until the date of its retirement.

As with BOBS, Group and Listed races are excluded.

Horses which turn 2YO on 1 August 2013 may be nominated for a fee of $840, in addition to the BOBS fee of $990.

BOBS Extra is optional, but a horse cannot be nominated for BOBS Extra without being paid up for BOBS (total $1830).

Unlike BOBS, late nominations are not possible for BOBS Extra.

Last season over $10 million was won in cash and BOBS Double Up vouchers. From 2015 (for horses foaled in 2011), winners of BOBS Extra bonuses will also be able to convert their winnings to BOBS Double Up vouchers which are then used at participating sales companies in Australia and New Zealand.

It’s also the time of year when mare owners are deciding which stallion to use during the 2013 breeding season and it makes sense to choose a BOBS stallion given their progeny will be eligible to be nominated for BOBS bonuses when they turn 2YO in 2016.

If you are not quite decided on which stallion will be right for you, Racing NSW has just recently completed the BOBS Sire Guide, for stallions covering mares in 2013 whose progeny will turn 2YO in 2016.  A comprehensive guide to NSW based stallions, the BOBS Sire Guide can be ordered for free by emailing



NSWROA Committee member, Mr Louis Mihalyka, of Laurel Oak Bloodstock has also prepared for the interest of members, the following item.

*   *   *   *   *  

A recently published table of the leading 3yo sires of the season in Great Britain highlighted that Australasia has really enjoyed the best of both worlds in terms of international stallion options.

Of the top 40 3yo sires in Great Britain, 26 of them have stood in Australia or New Zealand at some time. Perhaps even more significantly, 7 of the current top 8 have been available to Australasian breeders. They are Galileo, New Approach, Red Clubs (stood in New Zealand), Teofilo, Cape Cross, High Chaparral and Danehill Dancer.  Only Dansili, who is fourth on the list, hasn’t been Down Under.

With the choice between the best of British and the best of Aussie speed, it is no wonder that the gap between Australasian and northern hemisphere horses has closed rapidly in recent years.



A WINNER – there are no better words for an owner to hear!  As members are aware, as part of our membership renewal process, NSWROA requested members to forward the names of their racehorses in order for us to acknowledge their racing triumphs in our publications.

The listing under comprises wins recorded in New South Wales as well as Australian black type successes which are recorded in bold type.

Accordingly, hereunder are the lucky NSWROA members who had winners in July 2013
