FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

Following the recent Annual General Meeting of the Association, I was asked to mention to our members via the newsletter, some of the issues that I raised on the night.

During the past year the Association has provided input/submissions or lobbied on the following issues:

  • Raceday Cancellation Policy
  • Minimum Penalties
  • Regularity of Barrier Trials
  • Review of Financial Arrangements between Owners and Trainers
  • Owner Facilities at Randwick
  • Anabolic Steroids
  • Review of Thoroughbred Racing Act.

Unfortunately, an Owners Card, one of our long-time issues, is still on the table with Racing NSW.

The Association has represented owners on various industry groups and bodies during the year including the Racing Industry Consultation Group (RICG), the Australian Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners Council (ATROC) and the Committee to Review Financial Arrangements between Owners and Trainers.

On the industry front, there were several important developments since the last AGM namely:-

  • the increase to midweek and public holiday minimum prizemoney;
  • the changes to race field fees in NSW;
  • the banning of anabolic steroids; and
  • the appointment of the first female Keeper of the Book.

On the Committee front, we have had the addition to our Committee of Mr Francis Cook who joined us in May 2013 at the last AGM.  Mr John Vouris – who has been our Vice President (since March 2011) and Treasurer (since July 2008) did not stand for re-election this year.  John has done a marvelous job and on behalf of my fellow directors may I take this opportunity to formally thank him for his great contribution to the Association.

At the election of office bearers which followed the AGM, Mr Peter Beer was elected Vice President and Treasurer, Michael Inglis was re-elected Secretary and I was re-elected President.

I need to stress the great importance for all racing participants to work together for the good of the industry.  Unfortunately, in my view, this is not occurring at present.  Times are tough and all participants must unite to ensure our common goal, ie. the success of our wonderful industry, is realised.

I close my column on a note of sadness this month.  As members would be aware late last month we lost a true gentleman of the turf in Mr Guy Walter.  On behalf of the NSWROA Committee and our members we extend our deepest sympathy to Guy’s wife Wendy and the Walter family.

 

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

2014 RACING’S NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS – 7 AUGUST 2014 – SAVE THE DATE



Members are reminded to note your diaries for the flagship event of the Association – Racing’s Night of Champions - which will be held on Thursday, 7 August 2014 at The Star.

As you would be aware, this prestigious event which has been themed “Celebrating The Best”, pays homage to the best New South Wales Racing has to offer.

This year the Association is proud to again be supporting the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation (POWHF), as our charity of choice at Racing’s Night of Champions.

POWHF is an established charitable organisation supporting and promoting research, education, health promotion and patient care for and at the Prince of Wales Hospital Randwick.

See under for advance details of the function.

 

2013 RACING’S NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS GRANT BENEFICIARIES


NSWROA Committee Member Tom O’Callaghan (l)
with award recipient Ms Genevieve Gardener

Members will be interested to know that funds raised from the 2013 Racing’s Night of Champions function are being directed to some wonderful medical projects.

At a function on 22 May 2014 conducted at the Prince of Wales Hospital and attended by the Mayor of Randwick, Councillor Scott Nash, was well as Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation Board members, a major portion of the funds raised from last year’s event were granted to three recipients namely:

Ms Genevieve Gardner CNC Cardiac Surgery
  for:  filmed piece for patients about to have open heart
Professor Paul S. Thomas, Respiratory Physician
  for:  detecting lung cancer through breath analysis
Mr Jeff Rogers, Neurophysiologist
  for:  Innovations in virtual reality based rehabilitation of movement: using an interactive table-top system for stroke patients.

The Chairman of the Foundation Mr George Kemp said “We are honoured to have NSWROA sponsoring these awards. They bring significant credence to the program. It is also very important for the Directors to see and hear what the dedicated staff are doing, so we may talk about this hospital with absolute pride when we are speaking with our donors”.

NSWROA Committee Member Tom O’Callaghan represented the Association at the function and presented the award certificates to the very grateful and worthy recipients.

 

SPECIAL FEATURE: COROWA RACECOURSE



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

*   *   *   *   *

Nearly every country town has a racecourse. Some are only used for picnic meetings once a year, others are more commercial and most of those are managed and controlled by an energetic bunch of local folk and a committee.

The courses vary a lot in size and facilities but country racing is the life blood of our racing industry. The interest in racing around the nation is fed and fostered by these country clubs.

I usually have a look at the racecourse in a town, whenever I stop for a couple of days, and one such look last month had me in Corowa.  Corowa is a pretty town on the Murray river on the right side of the border, in NSW. It has a racecourse and it was a real surprise.

The course is large by country standards, approximately 1800 metres in circumference, about the size of Rosehill with a long straight. It has a lovely old grandstand, well kept grounds, sufficient buildings and covered areas to offer the race crowd comfort and facilities to enjoy a day at the races.



The Winning Post and the long straight at Corowa Racecourse

On my visit there, the curator was busily slashing in his tractor in the centre of the course and I ran into a man painting the wooden chairs, stools and tables in brilliant white. Having a chat, I soon found out he was a committeeman doing his bit to spruce up the course. I should have known. That’s how they do it in the bush.

Corowa has only six meetings a year – three TAB and three non-TAB. The committee’s hard work and the quality of their racecourse deserve more.

 

49TH ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING AND ELECTION OF OFFICE BEARERS

The forty-ninth Annual General Meeting of the NSW Racehorse Owners Association Limited (ACN 000 498 859) was held in The Boardroom, PKF Lawler Partners, Level 9, 1 O’Connell Street, Sydney on 19 May 2014 at 6.00 pm.

As members would be aware, Mr John Vouris did not stand for re-election.

I am pleased to confirm that Messrs Louis Mihalyka and Tom O’Callaghan and Ms Julia Ritchie were re-elected at the meeting.

The above join Messrs Michael Inglis, Peter Beer, Francis Cook, Wayne Haylen and Ray McDowell on the NSWROA Committee.

Following the election of the Committee, an election of office bearers took place with the following results:

President: Ray McDowell
Vice President: Peter Beer
Secretary: Michael Inglis
Treasurer: Peter Beer

 

MEANINGFUL RACEHORSE NAMES



Choosing a name for our wonderful steeds is never an easy task.  Have you ever wished that there was a book to assist with this task?  Well now there is.

Desmond McDermott has compiled a comprehensive list of available (at the time of publication) names together with their meanings in the book “Meaningful Racehorse Names”.  The book gives an opportunity to choose not only a meaning that “suits” your horse but also his or her appearance and characteristics.

For more details regarding ‘Meaningful Racehorse Names’ visit the website www.racehorsenames.com.au.

 

INDUSTRY UPDATES

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

TRT Demonstration Day And Sale Day
Join The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Trust at Canterbury Racecourse in June as they host a Demonstration and Sale day. Learn how former racehorses are rehabilitated into a new equine career with Retraining Manager Scott Brodie.

When: Sunday, 22 June 2014 from 10am
Where: Canterbury Stables, entrance off King St Canterbury
10am-12pm: Demonstration of the Rehabilitation Program by Scott Brodie
12pm-1pm: Inspection of horses available for early sale

Entry $10 donation

Due to an abundance of horses being donated, the Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Program is offering a selection of quality Thoroughbred horses for sale prior to starting re-training.  A careful selection of geldings and mares aged between 4 and 10 years, have been let down from racing, preliminary vet checked as sound and assessed to have no habitual vices. Priced at $1200 each, these Thoroughbreds have the potential to make quality performance or pleasure horses.  Inspections can be made at the Canterbury facility on 22 June in conjunction with a demonstration day. Inspections following the 22 June are welcome by appointment. Sales are to approved purchasers only.  For further a list of horses available for sale visit - TRT Demo Day 2014. Further information and approval for purchase can be obtained by emailing - scott.brodie@optusnet.com.au

Deloitte Access Economics Report Announced
Racing NSW has announced the findings of the recently published Deloitte Access Economics report into the economic benefits to the New South Wales economy of the NSW Thoroughbred Racing Industry achieving parity with its interstate counterparts in terms of share of TAB wagering tax.  The additional revenue so generated could be used to boost prizemoney across NSW, further develop The Championships into an event comparable to the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and provide funding for upgrades to racecourse facilities.  Deloitte Access Economics estimates that by achieving parity, the NSW Thoroughbred Racing Industry will contribute a further $172 million to the NSW economy, including $48m from The Championships and autumn carnival. The Championships can also lead to an increase in gross state income of $36m from event motivated tourism, Deloitte Access Economics found.  The forecast economic uplift is based on achieving only 50% of the interstate attendance of the Victorian Spring Racing Carnival.

Amendments to the Australian Rules of Racing
The Australian Racing Board (ARB) has decided to introduce a new rule (effective 1 July 2014), making it compulsory for owners to notify RISA on the retirement of their horse. The form specifically designed for this purpose will require the owner to indicate where the horse is destined (public auction, a paddock, a pony club, etc.).  The current system only requires a stable return for when a horse leaves a stable and approximately half of horses exiting a stable go to other trainers so we have no exact knowledge of the destination of ex-racehorses or even how many there are.  The ARB has identified the retirement of racehorses as a vitally important welfare issue and PRAs have adopted a number of rehoming programs to this end. The statistical data sought is an essential element in tracking retired racehorses.

Licensing Of Veterinarians – Introduction By RNSW (Commencement Deferred Until Tuesday 1 July)

Racing NSW has advised that the commencement of Local Rule 82C and the licensing process has been deferred until Tuesday, 1 July 2014.

 

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE


Update by Mark Brassel, Racing NSW Media & Website Manager

It’s not often the most talked about horse in a race – or for that fact at a race meeting – has been beaten.  But that was the case during the Queen’s Birthday Holiday program at Royal Randwick

Tough stayer Destiny’s Kiss picked up a $20,000 BOBS Extra bonus for his connections after a strong performance to take out the Stayers Cup over the gruelling 3200-metre journey.


Destiny’s Kiss draws clear to defeat Astro Avalanche in the Stayers Cup

But what about the runner-up?  Astro Avalanche, an $81 roughie, went to the lead under the guidance of in-form apprentice Taylor Marshall and at one stage held a conservative 40-length margin on his rivals.

Even turning for home the gelding still held a 10-length break but with 200m to travel it was evident he was tiring and Destiny’s Kiss picked him up and went on to score by just half a length, with Astro Avalanche fighting on right to the post.

Even in defeat, there would have been jubilation in the runner-up’s camp as many racegoers (and those watching from home or in pubs and clubs) were cheering on the brave tearaway leader; a sight not often seen in staying races.

Astro Avalanche’s performance emphasises the fun in owning a racehorse, despite the stayer being beaten on the day.

Earlier in the day Inz’n’Out (by Zariz) and In a Knot (Tale of the Cat) took out $20,000 BOBS bonuses for their respective connections.

So it’s timely to mention that racehorse nominations for BOBS-eligible yearlings (turning two on 1 August 2014) close 1 September 2014 and also for BOBS Extra.  Please note there is no late entry fee for BOBS Extra.

BOBS Sire Guide

Racing NSW will again produce the popular BOBS Sire Guide in 2014 with the publication being mailed out together with the August 2014 issue of Racing NSW Magazine.

The Sire Guide is for BOBS 2017 – those stallions covering mares in 2014 whose progeny will turn two-year-olds in 2017.
