FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

Racing’s Night of Champions is over for another year.

This year we were honoured by the presence of the Hon. Troy Grant MP, Minister for Hospitality, Gaming and Racing and Minister for the Arts, the Hon. Stuart Ayres MP, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for Sport and Recreation and Minister Assisting the Premier on Western Sydney, Mr John Barilora MP, Member for Monaro and Parliamentary Secretary and senior staff members at the Awards.

Apart from the NSWROA Industry Recognition Award in Honour of the late Guy Walter and his wife Wendy, there were no personal Awards so the Horses were deservedly the Stars of the evening. The night was a great success and some commented the best ever.

Many thanks to all of those who attended and contributed so generously by purchasing auction items. A special thanks to those who attended for the first time and we look forward to seeing you again at future functions. Our Charity for the night, The Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation, also wishes me to pass on their sincere thanks for funds raised.

The Industry is on the move and the Association is actively involved.

A review of the Thoroughbred Racing Act is due to be released soon and as you are aware, your Association has made a detailed submission directed principally at obtaining Industry recognition and participation at Racing NSW Board Level.

Recently the Government has commissioned IER Pty Limited to enquire into the “Size and Scope” of the Racing Industry in NSW.  We will be assisting by providing information and input as requested by the Minister.

I am pleased to report that Minister Grant has been very pro-active since taking up his new portfolios and has been meeting and listening to the concerns of all Industry bodies including the Association.

The creation of a new series culminating in a final worth $300,000 on the first day of the Championships is great news for our Country Cousins.  There will be 7 heats in the various country regions which will also be worth $100,000. Well done Minister Grant!

2014 RACING’S NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS



Before a large crowd at the spectacular Event Centre at The Star, Boban was named the Tab.com.au NSW Champion Horse of the Year at the NSW Racehorse Owners Association’s (NSWROA) 2014 Racing’s Night of Champions.

We saw the “best of the best” in the racing world in contention for all the awards at this prestigious event in aid of the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation which was televised live to the world on Sky Racing World.

Several years ago, the Association created the NSWROA Industry Recognition Award, a special award to honour an outstanding contribution made to the industry.  This award has only been presented on two occasions previously.  The inaugural winner of the award was Brother Dan Stafford in 2008 whilst Ian Craig received the honour in 2009.

This year the NSWROA Industry Recognition Award was awarded to Guy and Wendy Walter.

In yet another highlight on the night, Wendy Walter was in attendance to accept the Award on behalf of her late husband Guy Walter and herself.  The large crowd rose as one to salute Wendy Walter as she accepted the award.

The award winners for the 2013/14 season were:

The Chantoozies were the feature entertainment for the night and they were in fine form indeed on a night when fine form was rewarded accordingly. From the opening strands of “Love the One You’re With” it was standing room only on the dance floor as the ladies took us down memory lane with fantastic moments from the late 1980’s.

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 to help us in “celebrating the best”. My thanks also to our sponsors – we couldn’t do it without you! Congratulations to all winners and I look forward to seeing you all again next year at this wonderful event.”

CARRAZZO CONSULTING UPDATE: ANOTHER CASE FOR HORSE BUSINESS PLANS



As a bloodstock tax adviser, I’m continually reviewing new tax cases to find those that have special significance to the tax issues facing the racing and breeding industry.

These cases need not only to do with industry players taking on the ATO (or vice versa!) but also cases where the issues and principles apply very much to our industry, even though they relate to a different business activity.

One such case is “Hartley’s” case, decided only in the past 12 months. This case deals with not only the relevant industry issue of “Business or Hobby”, but, of more significance to the horse industry, it ultimately turned on whether Hartley had prepared a proper Business Plan. In this instance Mr Hartley (“Hartley”) was a share trader trying to demonstrate that he was running a professional share trading business.

The existence of a Business Plan is crucial for horse industry players wanting to demonstrate a business and/or GST enterprise with the ATO and where you have court cases that also reinforce this, the industry must sit up and take notice.

Hartley primarily lost the case due to his inadequate business plan and I’ll now take you through a brief summary of this case and draw out some valuable lessons for the industry along the way.

The facts in Hartley’s case

Hartley had been actively involved in the share market, and his share trading activity occupied him for about 15 hours per week. He was also a full-time council employee.

Hartley asserted that his share trading activities constituted a business for tax purposes. For each of the tax years ending 30 June 2009, 2010 and 2011, he claimed significant amounts as deductions against the share trading business.

Following an audit, the ATO determined that Hartley was a share investor and was not carrying on a business of share trading. Accordingly, Hartley’s deduction claim was rejected.

Hartley objected against the ATO’s audit decision.

At issue was whether Hartley was carrying on a business of share trading in the 2010 and 2011 years. Hartley asserted that he was carrying on a business as a share trader, while the ATO contended that he was a share investor or, possibly, a speculator.

Some additional relevant facts of this case were:

  • He averaged 30 trades a year for about $40,000 per parcel in tax years 2009, 2010 and 2011; and
  • Activities declined in those years due to GFC and a property purchase draining his cash resources

The case went to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) and Hartley was again unsuccessful in trying to demonstrate a business.

The AAT decision

The following factors were relevant considerations in determining whether a share trading business existed, many of which are just as relevant to horse industry players:

  • the nature of the activities and whether they had the purpose of profit-making;
  • the complexity and magnitude of the undertaking;
  • an intention to engage in trade regularly, routinely or systematically;
  • operating in a business-like manner and the degree of sophistication involved;
  • whether any profit/loss was regarded as arising from a discernible pattern of trading; and
  • the volume of the person’s operations and the amount of capital employed by him.
  • repetition and regularity in the buying and selling of shares;
  • turnover;
  • whether the person was operating to a plan, setting budgets and targets, keeping records; and
  • whether the person was engaged in another full-time profession.

While the matter was finely balanced, having regard to the evidence and the relevant factors, those factors pointing against the existence of a share trading business were more significant than those pointing in favour of the existence of a share trading business.

In finding against Hartley, the AAT specifically noted:

  • Hartley was more than a “mere hobbyist” and had a definite profit intention;
  • He only dealt in “blue-chips” and AAT didn’t consider the activity to be “complex”, though magnitude of turnover significant considering his modest income;
  • There was a lack of regularity of activity (no purchases for 7 months in FY10, only 8 purchases in a 3 month period in FY11);

N.B. From a breeding business perspective, this observation is relevant due to the many breeders who race too many of stock that they’ve bred and regular selling does not take place. Irregular mating of mares is also a poor look with the ATO; and

  • He used an office at home with modern technology and used credible research houses. Commsec was his main broker.

 

Lack of a proper Business Plan – the killer blow!

The AAT concluded that whilst Hartley had “a plan of sorts, it was neither “particularly sophisticated nor intricate, and for the most part seemed largely to be in the taxpayer’s head as it was in writing”. Furthermore, it was only belatedly committed to writing as a “business plan” during the course of the ATO dispute, and not at or around the commencement of the share activity.

In a case where the facts were “finely balanced”, I have little doubt that Hartley’s failure to produce a credible business plan (together with associated financial projections) was a turning point in this whole case and it serves as a crucial reminder to horse industry players that entering into battle with the ATO without a proper plan is becoming fraught with danger and, on many occasions, could be fatal if trying to argue an income tax business/GST enterprise.

NSWROA SPONSORED RACE AT COFFS HARBOUR CUP CARNIVAL



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 6 August 2014.

The event was taken out by How Good Is This (Eavesdropper(USA)-Stormy Alley(USA)) who is trained by Neil Godbolt. Arrow and Blinkin Glowing filled the placings in the event.

NSWROA Life Member and former President, Mr Max Whitby, kindly presented the trophy to the winning connections.

Wednesday 6th August was Day 2 of the 2014 Carlton MID Coffs Harbour Cup Carnival.  The carnival was held over a three day period commencing on Sunday 27th July Community Cups Day, continuing on Wednesday 6th August Sportsman’s Raceday and concluding on Thursday 7th August with the 2014 Carlton MID Coffs Harbour Gold Cup Day.

The winner of the feature race of the Carnival, the Carlton MID Coffs Harbour Gold Cup was Southern Shimmer (Southern Image(USA)-Djel D’Amour) trained by Ross Stitt who scored from Disciple and Single Spirit.

For further details on racing in Coffs Harbour, visit the Coffs Harbour Racing Club website at http://www.coffsracingclub.com.au

 

TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP

As of 1 August 2014, there was a change to the documentation required to be signed for a transfer of ownership in situations where some owners and their percentage owned stayed the same after the transfer.

Now, signature is required only by:

  1. Managing Owner to confirm that the entire ownership has been advised of the change in ownership
  2. The outgoing owner
  3. The incoming owner

Owners whose percentage ownership and other details have not changed no longer need to sign the Transfer of Ownership documentation.

By way of example, in a 20 share syndicate, where, say one 5% owner transfers their share to another owner, only three signatures and three documents need to be signed:

  1. Managing Owner to confirm that the entire ownership has been advised of the change in ownership
  2. The outgoing owner
  3. The incoming owner

Previously, the outgoing owner, the incoming owner, plus ALL 19 owners whose details and percentage have not changed, needed to sign. This required 21 signatures and documents to be completed for the one 5% change.

This is a fantastic initiative by RISA that makes the completion of ownership transfer documentation simpler.

 

THE NATIONAL JOCKEYS TRUST ANNUAL RACEDAY – 6 SEPTEMBER 2014



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 6th September 2014 on Level 2 of the Grandstand.

A highlight on the day will be the unveiling of a magnificent bronze statue to the fallen, which will take place next to the McGrath Meeting Tree at 11.00 am.

SPECIAL FEATURE: MOSSTROOPER: HACK TO HERO



Our good friend and NSWROA member, Mr Graham Caves, has kindly prepared for the interest of members the following item.

*   *   *   *   *

I felt the need to tell you about a wonderful new book, now released, called MOSSTROOPER: Hack to Hero …. by Peter Harris.

Being mainly New South Welshfolk reading this I think that not many of you have much exposure to the world of jumps racing in Australia.

Modern jumps racing is in a bit of a revival at the moment, through the deeds of Bashboy, Gotta Take Care, Black and Bent and others doing really well but the sport had its heyday in the early part of the last century and a little before.

The great Redleap in the 1890s and later Roisel, Mosstrooper and Redditch in the 1920s and 1930s led a jumps racing era not to be forgotten.

Peter Harris has written this book to honour his uncle, Bob Harris, who was the main rider of the subject Mosstrooper, but he has done a lot more than that.

If you read the book Peter will take you back to a long past racing world. A racing world very different to today. The horses, the riders, the trainers and the owners of the time are brought to you with great detail and a flair for giving you the full story to wonder about. The illustrations are superb, where he found them I don’t know but they really brighten the book.

So, if you want to read about those times, get yourself a copy and get to it. The book is available from Peter’s website …   www.mosstrooperbook.com.

 

INDUSTRY UPDATES

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

BOBS Racehorse Nominations Closing
A reminder that BOBS Racehorse Nominations close on Monday 1 September 2014 for horses foaled in 2012 that turned two-years-old on Friday, 1 August 2014.  Visit the Racing NSW website www.racingnsw.com.au for further details.

New CEO for TBA and Aushorse Marketing
Thoroughbred Breeders Australia (TBA) and Aushorse Marketing have announced that Tom Reilly, currently the editor of the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper, will become Chief Executive Officer of both organisations.  The appointment will commence in mid September.  The TBA is the peak body of the six state breeding associations whilst Aushorse Marketing is a non-profit organisation founded with the aim of promoting the Australian Thoroughbred. 

Licensing Of Veterinarians – Commencement Deferred
Racing NSW has advised that the commencement of Local Rule 82C and the licensing process has been deferred until further notice.

Electronic Fixture Cards
Electronic copies of the Fixture Cards for Metropolitan Meetings to 31 December 2014 and Country Meetings for the 2014-2015 season are now available.

To access the 2014-2015 Metropolitan Fixture Card click here.

To access the Racing NSW Country Fixture Card for the 2014-2015 season click here.

New Horse Handler Rules
The Australian Racing Board (ARB) has introduced new rules from 1 July which give stewards powers to test any trainer, strapper, vet, barrier attendant or other horse handler they suspect of being drug or alcohol affected.  These new rules stem from a safety viewpoint and have been formulated after two years consultation with industry bodies. A horse handler impaired by an illicit substance or alcohol, poses a significant safety risk in the workplace to other workers and to horses in their care. As a condition of their licence, horse handlers undertake to submit to tests that are intended to detect substances banned under the new Rule AR.81AA. For further details visit the ARB website www.australianracingboard.com.au.

 

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE


Update by Mark Brassel, Racing NSW Media & Website Manager

The 2014-15 season is now underway and with BOBS closing on 1 September, big bonuses lie in wait for the latest intake of youngsters.

BOBS – now with the additional benefits of BOBS Extra and BOBS Double Up – is Australia’s best incentive scheme with $85 million paid out since the program’s inception.

BOBS is available on every single race in NSW (excluding Group and Listed races), hence, the pool of money available is far greater than other programs and as it is unnecessary for connections to target specific races to obtain bonuses.

Last season over $10m was won in cash and used in BOBS Double Up vouchers and winners of BOBS Extra bonuses can now convert their winnings to Double Up vouchers.

These vouchers can be used at participating sales companies in Australia and New Zealand, with the Racing NSW website listing the companies.

Racing NSW has invested almost $20m in the breeding industry through the introduction of the Double Up program and last season a record 1,227 BOBS bonuses were won.  BOBS Extra-nominated horses recorded 166 wins adding $1.07m to their earnings.

Along with the significant prizemoney increases through all levels in NSW, the BOBS program helps make horse ownership more affordable and rewarding through supporting BOBS-nominated stallions with a list of BOBS sires displayed on the Racing NSW website.

Meanwhile, exciting prospect Harrier Jet was one of the first to win a $10,000 BOBS bonus this season on 6 August.

Harrier Jet snared the bonus for his connections when a runaway winner at Canterbury Park under the guidance of Hugh Bowman.  The Chris Waller-trained gelding led throughout to defeat another BOBS-eligible galloper in The Big Rig.

Chris Waller has quite an opinion of the son of Dane Shadow and said afterwards:  “He will make into a nice horse and win his owners plenty of money,” Waller said.  “But he must take a few steps before racing against the better horses in the spring.”

On the same afternoon Echo Gal (Tommy Berry) defied all attempts to run her down and also gave her connections a $10,000 BOBS windfall.

It was a great performance by the Gai Waterhouse filly as Echo Gal defeated the older mares, having just turned a three-year-old just five days beforehand.

Waterhouse’s stable foreman, Mark Newnham, said:  “Now that this filly has won we can look for a Stakes race.  She did it tough as well; she's led, got taken on and kept finding.  Plus she had to hold off two horses in a driving finish.”

 


Echo Gal (Tommy Berry) – the filly recently claimed a tidy $10,000 BOBS bonus for her connections.

Both Harrier Jet and Echo Gal have now each won two $10,000 BOBS bonuses.

FREE BOBS Sire Guide

Racing NSW’s latest BOBS Sire Guide (2017) has now been printed and is available from Racing NSW FREE of charge.  The Sire Guide is for BOBS 2017 – those stallions covering mares in 2014 whose progeny will turn two-year-olds in 2017.

The new Sire Guide is invaluable for mare owners planning this season’s coverings and is available by contacting Racing NSW via email - bobs@racingnsw.com.au - or by telephone (02) 9551 7605.

 

WINNERS ARE GRINNERS

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.

NEXT TAB SADDLE-UP SUNDAY MEETING – 7 SEPTEMBER 2014 – MOREE RACE CLUB



The next TAB Saddle-up Sunday Meeting will be conducted by the Moree Race Club on Sunday, 7 September 2014 – Moree Cup Day.

The Moree Cup is the highlight on an eight event TAB program.  Other highlights on the day include Fashions on the Field with fantastic prizes up for grabs and of course plenty of entertainment for the kids. 

Moree is a progressive and dynamic town situated at the heart of NSW’s northern wheatbelt and recognised nationally as Australia’s Artesian Spa Capital. Ideally nestled on the New South Wales and Queensland border, Moree is a town rich in culture, heritage, agriculture and natural assets with each component intertwining to define the characteristics of both the town and the community.
