FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

It’s Carnival time and there is nothing quite like it – is there?  The BMW Sydney Carnival has just completed week four and the racing has been superb.

The first three weeks of the Carnival were held at Rosehill Gardens culminating with the running of the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes and the Group 1 The BMW taken out most impressively by Mossfun and Silent Achiever (NZ) respectively.  We had so many highlights, too many to give full credit to here, but it would be remiss of me if I did not mention Tiger Tees (NZ) part owned by NSWROA Member Mr N Couper who was successful in the Group 1 The Galaxy and Gordon Lord Byron (IRE) who scored in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes.

Week four of the BMW Sydney Carnival saw us at Royal Randwick for Day 1 of The Championship.  Despite the absolutely miserable weather the Australian Turf Club faced, we still had a wonderful day of racing.

Who would have thought that after seeing Black Caviar win the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes so dominantly last year that this year would unveil yet another sprinting sensation, Lankan Rupee who has taken all before him this season.  The Group 1 Australian Derby was Criterion’s crowning glory whilst Peggy Jean saluted in the Group 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes.  But it was, without doubt, the Group 1 Doncaster Mile which was the stand-out event of the day with Sacred Falls (NZ) successfully defending his crown and Champion Trainer Chris Waller filling the first four placings in the event – just awesome!

Other winners on the day were Hallowed Crown (Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes), Gypsy Diamond (Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes), Politeness (Group 3 P J Bell Stakes), The Offer (Group 2 Chairman’s Handicap) and Arabian Gold (Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes).

This Saturday is Day 2 of The Championships with the remaining six races in the series to be held including:  the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes, the Group 1 Sydney Cup, the Group 1 Australian Oaks, the Group 1 Queen of the Turf Stakes, the Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes and the Group 3 Royal Randwick Stakes.

It is also the day our annual Sydney Cup Luncheon will be held.  I for one cannot wait.

The BMW Carnival will then conclude the following week with the Group 1 All Aged Stakes and the Group 1 Champagne Stakes the highlights on the card on Schweppes Stakes Day.

It’s hard to find a better time of year than Sydney in the Autumn.

Whilst on the one hand we have had many wonderful moments this past four weeks we have also, on the other hand, had an extremely sad one as well.  The passing of the incredibly talented young man, Nathan Berry, has left all of us deeply saddened.  I cannot put into words how very sad I am for Nathan’s wife Whitney and the Berry and Schofield families and on behalf of my fellow Directors and our members, I extend our sincere sympathy to them.

SPECIAL FEATURE: THE SYDNEY CUP – PART 2


Galilee at Victoria Park in Adelaide in his early career,
carrying the colours of his owners – Mr. and Mrs. Max Bailey

Last month as a preamble to our annual Sydney Cup Day luncheon on 19 April, our good friend and NSWROA member, Mr Graham Caves, kindly prepared for the interest of members Part 1 of a special feature on the Sydney Cup.

Hereunder is Part 2 of the feature.

*   *   *   *   *

An opinion on the best Sydney Cup win after World War II was no less difficult than the best pre-war Cup (see last newsletter). While the strength of the fields for the Cup diminished as the years of saturation of sprinting blood in Australian breeding took their toll, there were still many memorable contests.

Dark Marne’s slugfest win over Columnist in 1948 was followed a year later by the all-3YO finish when the great young horse Carbon Copy prevailed over Vagabond and Benvolo. Carioca continued his rise to turf icon in 1953 and another outstanding 3YO rose to the occasion in 1956 called Sailor’s Guide.

Straight Draw, tough as they come, followed his Melbourne Cup win the previous spring with the Sydney Cup in 1958. We’ll skip over 1967 and keep you waiting for the chosen one and roll on to General Command in 1968 and New Zealand warhorse Battle Heights in 1974. My Good Man (Good Lord NZ) was dominant in 1978 and a trio of 3YO’s won from 1979 to 1981 – Double Century, Kingston Town (how can I not choose his Cup?) and Our Paddy Boy. Another, Veloso, won in 1983.

Fast forward to 1998 and 1999 and the modern day history of the Sydney Cup was written by the marvellous Tie the Knot. He won them both, the latter by six lengths. I should change my mind and choose him, but no! Makybe Diva treated us to a power staying performance in 2004 to get up and beat the lightly weighted outsider Manawa King, giving him 6.5 kgs. That was the last of the great Cup wins for consideration.

So, back to 1967 and the unforgettable win of Galilee!

Bart Cummings, his trainer, has said when discussing his latest star So You Think, that Galilee was the horse he had to remind us of, when we compare champions of the past. He himself doesn’t do comparisons.

In the era around 1967 it was common, no, normal, for the Melbourne Cup contenders to move on and prepare for the Sydney Cup. The prizemoney for the races was not far apart – Melbourne Cup $60,000 .. Sydney Cup $40,000. How things have changed!

Galilee was a big lengthy horse with great power and, many argue, the best stayer of the post-war era. He had won the Melbourne Cup in 1966 with authority from the wonderful staying mare, also trained by Bart, the 1965 Melbourne Cup winner, Light Fingers.

When weights for the Sydney Cup appeared and Galilee was given 9 stone 7 pounds (60.5 kgs) there was much conjecture about whether he would run in the race. He found good form quickly in the autumn and was twice second to a near champion in Tobin Bronze in shorter weight-for-age races but when the distances increased he gave nothing a chance by winning the Queen’s Plate, VRC Queen Elizabeth Stakes and AJC Autumn Stakes in succession. This brought him to the Sydney Cup and being in such good form it was decided to start him. His odds were crunched to 6/4 on favourite.

The field for the race contained lightly weighted capable stayers such as Duo and Avenium (third and fourth in the Melbourne Cup), Clovelly, Golden Boy, Gin and Bitters and Somerset. Also competing were Striking Force (a Metropolitan Handicap winner) and Tommy Smith’s Prince Grant (1966 Sydney Cup winner and an AJC Derby winner).  Galilee was attempting to become the only horse to win the Caulfield, Melbourne and Sydney Cups in the one season.

As his price indicated, Galilee was superior to those horses but could he give them so much weight? Luck in running was always a factor and Johnny Miller, his West Australian jockey was mindful of the certain tactics his opposing riders would use to ensure the champion was not presented with the race. Miller settled Galilee back in the field of 15, near to last, at the post first time around. At the mile (1600m) he began to allow his horse to improve gradually to ninth and when they turned down the side at the six furlongs (1200m) they moved around most of the field, kept four and five wide all the way by the other riders, into fourth place before the turn. On the bend into the straight Miller had defied logic by taking Galilee to the lead. Prince Grant, George Moore up, good and game as always, tried to go with him and straightened a half length behind. From there Galilee showed his greatness by forging away easily, barely ridden hands and heels, to a six lengths victory.

I rest my case.





CARRAZZO CONSULTING UPDATE: ATO PLAYS HARDBALL WITH SECONDARY LOSS RULINGS

If the racing and breeding industry needs any evidence that preserving revenue is now at a premium for the ATO, it need look no further than the strict, and arguably unfair manner, in which the ATO is currently assessing private ruling applications for high income earners seeking access to their horse losses.

The rules I refer to are the Non-Commercial Loss (NCL) rules for high income earners (i.e. where their adjusted taxable income is $250,000 or over) when changes in 2009 meant that they could only claim their business losses if they received a successful private ruling from the ATO.

As background, to be eligible to apply for a private ruling, the individual must meet one of the two grounds available, being:

  • The business was (or will be) affected by “special circumstances” beyond the control of the operators of the business (e.g., a fire, flood, drought, diseases affecting livestock or crops (e.g. EI), a pest plague or a hailstorm; or
  • The business, because of its nature, is not expected to become commercially viable until sometime after it has commenced, i.e. the “lead time” limb.

Meeting the “lead time” criteria

This article focuses on industry players applying for a ruling under the latter noted “lead time” limb. Further to the above, whether the ATO allows the loss under this limb requires the consideration of two factors:

  • Whether, “because of its nature”, the business activity has not produced or will not produce a tax profit; and
  • Whether there is an objective expectation, based on evidence from independent sources (where available) that, within a period that is commercially viable for the industry concerned, the activity will produce a tax profit.

This limb was inserted to ensure that the loss rules do not adversely impact on individuals who have commenced activities which by their “nature” require a number of years to produce income, e.g. a horse breeding activity.

Meaning of “because of its nature”

For the ATO to approve a loss under the “lead time” limb, the individual must show that the reason your horse activity is producing a tax loss in a year, is because of something “inherent to the nature of the business” and not just something peculiar to your situation.

The judge’s findings in a recent tax case in this area (“Eskandari”), provides helpful comment of what is meant by “because of its nature”, where he stated:

“Such activities have an inherent characteristic that cannot be overcome by conducting the business activity in a different way but only by changing the nature of the business”.

“For the failure…to produce a tax profit to be “because of its nature” the failure must be because of some inherent characteristics that the taxpayer’s business activity has in common with other business activities of that type”.

The problem - ATO’s view of “inherent characteristics” for a breeding business

Based on our knowledge of recent private rulings that the ATO have been asked to rule upon re individuals seeking to deduct their horse losses under the “lead time” limb, the industry has reason to be concerned.

These rulings have been sought by individuals who have previously had a ruling approved under this limb, and due to circumstances beyond their control or a change to their business model, have not been able to generate a tax profit within the time proposed in that original ruling application. Accordingly, a second private ruling application (“Application 2”) has been lodged seeking to have losses approved for later tax years not contemplated in the original ruling. In terms of meeting the basic “lead time” criteria, it must be emphasized that tax profits in Application 2 were still projected to be derived, as noted in the NCL laws, “within a period that is commercially viable for the industry concerned”.

Secondary loss applications denied – the facts

In summary, these secondary ruling applications were not successful due to the following factors provided by the ATO:

  • The ATO hold the view that in the very first year foals are sold a tax profit should be derived, which is a major concern as the NCL rules state that the “lead time” period is from time of commencement of the business to when a “tax profit” is derived. The ATO have little regard for other expenses that must be incurred in the start-up period to get the business on a profitable and sustainable footing in the future, e.g. service fees.

Comment

The “lead time” durations determined by the ATO for various stages of the breeding cycle (e.g. acquiring fillies to race, acquiring mares “in-foal” and acquiring barren mares) are too short and not in line with industry standards. Per the principles in Eskandari noted above, the ATO should be mindful that setting an acceptable “lead time” must be for a time frame in common “with other business activities of that type”.

  • It appears that the ATO believe the onlyinherent characteristic” that prevents a breeding business from deriving a profit within the accepted lead time is not having foals available to sell within the start-up period.  Thus, the ATO specifically excludes the following from being “inherent characteristics” of a breeding business:
    • Foals dying;
    • Yearlings having defects;
    • Foals not sold due to lack of growth (e.g. a mare’s first foal);
    • Broodmares not being serviced for non-financial reasons; 
    • Retaining a filly for breeding purposes;
    • Small scale start-ups;
    • Hours worked;
    • Need to build a client base;
    • Large interest costs; and
    • Fluctuation in sales prices.

Comment

In this regard, it is imperative that the industry enters into dialogue with the ATO to educate them further of the nuances of starting up a breeding business and why excluding some of the above as “inherent characteristics” is unfair to the breeder. Needless to say, the writer hopes to be very active in this ATO education process.

  • Selling fillies intended for the breeding barn is not an excuse for the breeder if arguing for the deduction of a loss under the “lead time” limb. The ATO contends that this is no excuse for not having foals to sell, as such a scenario not only effects the “initial period” of the business, but can impact on your business in each and every year it is conducted.
  • If you change your business model to acquire more mares within the “lead time” period, the likely delay in generating tax profits is not an “inherent characteristic” delaying the making of profits in the eyes of the ATO.
  • Mares will have a foal available for sale in roughly 70% of the mares’ stud seasons, thus the ATO considers that the breeder should take this into account when gathering a breeding herd of sufficient number to be able to generate sufficient sales and a tax profit. In other words, they are forcing the breeder to have greater mare numbers to meet these NCL rule requirements, this having the potential to drive the numerous small breeders out of business. Their cynicism re the viability of “small scale” activities was a constant thread throughout the decisions referred to.

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE


Update by Ben Flores, Media Officer, Racing NSW

Stallion nominations now open
Stallion nominations for BOBS 2017 are now open and will close on 30 June 2014. Any stallion standing in NSW from 1 September 2014 can be nominated at a cost based on the advertised stud fee.  BOBS nominations ensure that the stallion’s progeny will be eligible for BOBS when they turn two-years-old in 2017. Each nominated stallion will be listed on the Racing NSW website and in print, including the annual BOBS Sire Guide which is currently being prepared for publication.

Record numbers for mares’ bonus
Racing NSW has received a record number of registrations for the expansion of the hugely successful bonus scheme.  Over 1700 nominations have been received since the launch of the additional scheme, making it one of the most popular BOBS initiatives in recent times.

From 1 January, 2014 Racing NSW will pay a 2.5% BOBS Bonus to the registered breeder (as set out in the Australian Stud Book) of any horse who wins a BOBS or BOBS Extra bonus.  As an example, the registered breeder of a broodmare whose BOBS nominated progeny are successful at a Saturday metropolitan race meeting will receive a $500 BOBS bonus. Payments will be made at the same percentage rate of the BOBS bonus across all races in NSW excluding Group and Listed races.  In order to receive this bonus, the registered breeder must complete a BOBS Mare Bonus form within 6 months of the date of the horse/s win.  If you have a mare that you would like to nominate, please visit the Racing NSW website and fill out the online form.

Leading sires
Champion sire Exceed and Excel is currently leading the BOBS Stallion Premiership. The Darley based sire’s progeny has so far claimed $260,000 in BOBS bonuses for the 2013-14 racing season.  Not far behind Exceed and Excel sits the late Northern Meteor. Although passing in July last year, the progeny of Northern Meteor have fared well with BOBS, bringing in $250,000 in bonus prizemoney.

What great results! Congratulations to all! Don't forget to forward the names of your racehorses to the NSWROA office.

 

NEXT TAB SADDLE-UP SUNDAY MEETING – 4 MAY 2014 – MUDGEE RACE CLUB

The next TAB Saddle-up Sunday Meeting will be conducted by the Mudgee Race Club on Sunday, 4 May 2014 – Gooree Cup Day.

TAB Saddle-Up Sundays keep the fun coming with one of the most enjoyable race days west of the Blue Mountains. The 1600 metre Gooree Cup is the feature event, sponsored by Gooree Park Stud and Winery, and racing throughout the afternoon is extremely competitive.

The picturesque racecourse is on the northern side of Mudgee.  Take Church Street, cross the Cudgegong River and follow Ulan Road for 1 km and the racecourse is on your right. Mudgee is less than a 4-hour drive from Sydney. Cross the Blue Mountains to Lithgow and follow the signs on Highway 86 for 120km to Mudgee.

Visit the website – www.gocountryracing.com.au – for further information on the race meeting, accommodation and local activities to make a perfect weekend away.
