FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

As I have mentioned to you before, the Association continues to work tirelessly to advance the interests of our members.  One of the avenues we use to do this is via our participation on various committees.  This month I thought I would update members on the various committees on which the Association has representation.

First up is the Racing Industry Consultation Group (RICG) for which I am the Association’s representative.  RICG is a statutory body established by the Thoroughbred Racing Amendment Bill 2008 under the NSW Thoroughbred Racing Act 1996.  RICG has the function of consulting with and making recommendations to Racing NSW (the regulatory body for thoroughbred racing in NSW) on matters concerning thoroughbred racing in NSW.

Secondly, is the Australian Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners Council (ATROC) the national peak body representing racehorse owners in Australia.  ATROC is made up of representatives from each of the constituted State Bodies.  ATROC was originally formed in 2003 under an informal charter between ownership representative bodies throughout Australia.  The key objective of ATROC is to look after owners interests.  Our Secretary, Michael Inglis is our representative.

The Committee to Review Financial Arrangements between Owners and Trainers formed by Racing NSW is another committee the Association has representation on with NSWROA Committee Member Tom O’Callaghan our delegate on same.

Mr O’Callaghan was also the Association’s representative on the industry working party looking into the crucial issue of the Personal Properties Security Act and Mr Inglis also sits on the Board of Country Racing NSW albeit with another hat on.

As you will appreciate, issues under discussion with these Committees are confidential until such time as they have been approved for release.  I would however like to assure members that the Association will not be deterred from our goal of ensuring the best possible result for racehorse owners in this State.

Another avenue used to advance the interests of members is via consultation with various industry bodies.  In recent times the Association, via our Vice President John Vouris, had cause to write to the Chairman of Stewards at Racing NSW, Mr Ray Murrihy, on behalf of one of our members.  Mr Murrihy responded expeditiously and fully to our enquiry.  Mr Vouris is also awaiting a detailed response from the Australian Turf Club regarding another member enquiry.

May I also take this opportunity to advise members to contact us should you have an ownership issue you need assistance with.

And in closing, as this is the last newsletter before the commencement of the BMW Sydney Carnival (23 March to 27 April 2013), I encourage members to be a part of the excitement of this wonderful time of year.  I look forward to seeing you at the track.

 

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

 YEARLING SALES REPORTS

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


NSWROA Committee member, Mr Louis Mihalyka, of Laurel Oak Bloodstock, attended the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale in Melbourne and has kindly prepared for the interest of members, the following item.

*   *   *   *   *   

The Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale, held over three days early in March with a fourth-day second session, continued this year’s trend of increased average prices.

This sale has firmly established itself as the third-best in Australia behind the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale and the Magic Millions January Sale.

In recent years, the increased capacity at Inglis’ Oaklands Junction complex, with the building of Barn G some years ago and then Barn H three years ago which between them allows the complex to hold around 200 extra horses, has certainly helped widen the gap between the Melbourne Premier Sale, the Inglis Classic Sale and the Adelaide Millions, which were once comparative sales in quality. It seems the Melbourne Premier Sale has drawn horses from those later two sales, impacting on their quality while increasing the general standard of the Melbourne Premier Sale, and that, in turn, has tended to be reflected in the average prices.

This is generally regarded as the trainers’ sale because, with the proliferation of SuperVOBIS and BOBS horses in this sale (many with dual eligibility), many Australian trainers target the sale as the one they will be most likely to be able to buy at due to the Easter and Magic Millions being that much more expensive. Consequently, there is great demand for the better types in the sale, and this year was no exception.

The average price grew from $72,412 to $78,627, and the number of horses above $200,000 grew from 17 last year to 22 this year. The increase in the number of higher-priced lots, combined with the negative trend in the clearance rate, which fell from 82% twelve months ago to 76% this year, reflected the industry trend that buyers are willing to pay more for the perceived ‘better’ prospects while they are not prepared to risk money on seemingly lesser horses.

There were patches in the sale where close to ten horses in a row were passed-in, but that was countered by very strong demand whenever a sought-after horse passed through the ring.

Inglis’ push to build up the overseas buyers worked very well, with the South Africans being extremely well represented, and, according to the official records, nine individual buyers bought 31 yearlings with a spend of just over $2m.

This sale also introduced a new Blue Riband section, which was a concentrated section in the sale for yearlings whose pedigrees had suggested that they would be staying-type horses. The average of this Blue Riband section was higher than the overall average.

As had been the trend in Australian sales this year, Fastnet Rock was the leading sire with five lots sold at an average of $278,000. He was also responsible for the two highest-priced yearlings, which sold for $450,000 and $340,000.

It was noticeable that buyers were not totally stallion-focused here, with solid, if not over-hyped, stallions out of good mares with good yearlings still selling well. There were six yearlings for $300,000 or more in behind Fastnet Rock, and four individual stallions, New Approach, Snitzel, Not A Single Doubt and Redoute’s Choice made up the other four $300,000 lots. Represented in the twenty-two $200,000-plus yearlings were Bel Esprit, Teofilo, Northern Meteor, Wanted, Testa Rossa, Written Tycoon, Exceed And Excel, Hardspun, Medaglia D’Oro, Street Sense, High Chaparral and Encosta De Lago.

Amongst the buyers, David Hayes’ Lindsay Park is having a crack at the summit once again, buying seven lots for $985,000. Hong Kong’s Ricky Yui, and Peter Moody, were the next leading buyers in terms of aggregate spend.

The next major yearling sale we will report on will be the nation’s premier sale, the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale on 9, 10 and 11 April.

A SLICE OF SUNSHINE AT THE TRT DEMONSTRATION DAY

 

Eager to please horses, enthusiastic volunteers, and a little bit of luck from the heavens provided a recipe for success at Canterbury in an effort to raise funds and educate people on the importance of racehorse rehabilitation.

The NSW Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Trust (TRT) hosted a demonstration day on Sunday 24th February to showcase the wonderful work being conducted with the retired racehorses, as well as to parade some of the talented horses nearing the end of their rehabilitation to a crowd of over 100.

The demonstration conducted by Thoroughbred Retraining Manage Scott Brodie features 3 horses at various stages of their rehabilitation process.

Brand new arrival Flying Zappa was the first horse to brave the audience. Limitless was next on show and was incredibly well behaved for a 3 year old. Whilst the final equine to grace the arena was the beautiful chestnut gelding Nightofthegeneral. Rider and horse held the audience captive while Scott demonstrated Nightofthegeneral’s new talent as a fully retrained thoroughbred ready for re-homing.  The Gelding must have put on his best performance at the demonstration as he was rehomed that very day to Jodi from Tamworth to fulfil a new career as an eventer.

Being able to showcase the purpose of the program and demonstrate the eagerness shown by thoroughbreds to learn more was encouraging for all who attended. The crowd was a great mixture of potential purchasers, previous racehorse owners, and the general population wanting to see just what the Rehabilitation Program is all about.

If you missed out on the Demonstration Day and would like to keep informed about upcoming events by the TRT, subscribe to the TRT Newsletter (www.nswtrt.org.au) or find us on Facebook (Facebook/NSWTRT).

ROSEHILL RACEDAY  FUNCTION  – SATURDAY 16 FEBRUARY 2013

Our thanks to members who attended our first function for the year – the raceday function at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Saturday, 16 February 2013 – Royal Sovereign Stakes Day.

It was our first raceday function at Rosehill for some time and the ATC staff went out of their way to welcome us back to the venue and supplied a wonderful array of food and beverages to sustain us for the day.  A special thank you to Tracey Ware for all her assistance and, as always, our thanks to Roger Brassington.

We may not have been at Flemington to witness Black Caviar continue her amazing winning streak but as those who were at Rosehill will attest, the crowd rose as one and cheered her all the way to the winning post.

But it wasn’t only Black Caviar that gave as cause to celebrate as there was an abundance of wonderful racing on offer at Rosehill with future stars of the carnival on display.  NSWROA members had black type success at Rosehill in the Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes (Rebel Dane), the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (Bennetta), the Listed Canonbury Stakes (Never Can Tell) and the Listed Widden Stakes (Overreach) as well as the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (Sheer Talent) at Flemington.

Hereunder are some happy snaps from the day. 

 



 

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE

Update by Ben Flores, Media Officer, Racing NSW

BOBS nominations are open again and never has it been more evident that BOBS is the most successful racing bonus scheme in Australia than now.

By early March, Racing NSW had injected almost $4.2 million into horse ownership via BOBS and over $800,000 through BOBS Extra winners. While these amounts are a testament to the success of the bonus scheme, the figures generated by BOBS Double-Up redemptions are just as impressive.

Since its inception in 2004/05, the actual total value of BOBS bonuses doubled-up totals a massive $17.9 million and continues to grow. Already, the 2012/13 season has seen $1.39 million injected by way of double-up redemptions. A common misconception with BOBS Double-Up vouchers is that they can only be redeemed at Inglis sales and only in NSW.  That is not the case. BOBS Double-Up vouchers are open to all BOBS-eligible yearlings, including the NZ Bloodstock sale at Karaka.  If you win a BOBS bonus it certainly is worth considering the Double-Up option. Owners are given two-years to redeem the money by purchasing a yearling and you can multiply the value each time one of your horses wins a bonus. BOBS Double-Up can also be used by people with shares in syndicated horses – their Double-Up balance can be used to fund a share in another horse.

The race to see which stallion will claim top honours for the season’s table is still very much alive.  There’s been a number of changes over the last three months with champion sire and living legend of the turf Redoute’s Choice now on top of the board. Redoute’s Choice has sired 22 winners for $200,000 so far this season and is followed closely behind by More Than Ready with 20 wins and $150,000. By mid-March there 20 stallions with more than 10 bonus wins to their name.

If you’re thinking about buying a horse this year, BOBS nominations are up and running and close on Saturday, September 1 for horses foaled in 2011 and turn two-years-old on August 1, 2013.

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.
