FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

I start my column this month with some wonderful news.

I am very pleased to advise members that the Association has extended its partnership with Tabcorp.  The partnership, which has now entered its seventh year, will move forward under the face of TAB.com.au.

In addition to being NSWROA’s Exclusive Wagering Partner, TAB.com.au will also continue its sponsorship of the TAB.com.au NSW Racehorse of the Year award at the NSWROA’s Racing’s Night of Champions which takes place in August.

The Association is delighted that our partnership with Tabcorp has been extended.

Now for some not so good news!

Racing Australia, which replaced the Australian Racing Board (ARB), commenced operations on Monday April 13.  Unfortunately Mr Peter McGauran, the Racing Australia Chief Executive Officer, has indicated that Racing Australia will not receive submissions from State based industry bodies such as NSWROA.  Similarly, Racing Australia does not recognize the Australian Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners Council (ATROC), the owners national body.  Owners Associations have been directed to make any submissions or requests for information thru their State or Territory Principal Racing Authorities (PRA’s).  This creates practical difficulties for industry stakeholder bodies.  For example, Racing Australia intends to introduce a Payment Mandate commencing on 1 August, 2015 whereby all racehorse owners will be required to lodge credit cards details with RISA as security for payment of training fees, as a condition of being registered as an owner.  This is clearly a national issue and as you have been previously informed this proposal is opposed by all State owner bodies with the exception of Victoria.  In our State, despite opposition, not only by NSWROA but also the Racing Industry Consultation Group (RICG), this proposal has been enthusiastically supported by Racing NSW.  Racing Australia’s attitude is to say in the least unhelpful.

Turning then to the vexed issue of Jockey’s superannuation, the PRA’s have been voluntarily making payments of superannuation for jockeys since 1 July 2014.  However, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has made a demand on a country race club for retrospective payments dating back to 2009.  According to the ATO, the ARB/Racing Australia has made representations to it on behalf of the PRA’s and Race Clubs that: “The horse owners, or in some cases the horse trainer, are the employers” for the purposes of the Superannuation Act.

The ATO has determined that not only are the jockeys entitled to superannuation, but that it is the PRA’s or the Race Clubs who are “liable to the superannuation guarantee charge”.

It is not for us to express an opinion as to which is the correct legal position.  The simple point to be made is that neither the NSWROA nor, as we understand it, other State owner bodies have been consulted or kept informed about an issue of vital importance to all owners.  We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed despite the lack of information being provided.

 

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

TABCORP, we’re committed to supporting the racing industry.

Tabcorp is Australia’s leading wagering and entertainment group. We pride ourselves on our commitment to the Australian Racing Industry through our support of organisations like NSWROA.

Tabcorp returned $735 million to the racing industry in FY14 contributions such as this help to ensure the preservation and improvement of the industry and its people.

INGLIS AUSTRALIAN EASTER YEARLING SALE REPORT



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

*   *   *   *   *  

The recently-completed Inglis Easter Yearling Sale was a real spectacle that continued the upward trend that has prevailed at the Australian yearling sales to-date.

423 horses were offered compared to 393 last year, 350 of which were sold, providing a healthy clearance rate of 83%, just down from last year’s 85%.

The aggregate increased a hefty 22.6%, and there was a big announcement on Thursday afternoon when the aggregate passed the $100 million figure. The final tally was $102,110,000.

This provided an average of $291,743, an increase of 16.7% from last year. The median also increased, up 11.1% to $200,000.

It is a true reflection of the mindset of serious buyers when you know that you have to plan to spend at least $300,000 on your preferred lots to expect to be competitive with those chasing the absolute top lots, knowing that anything under $1 million will not be adequate.

In total there were ten lots selling for $1 million or more.

Inglis, Aushorse and anyone else who has contributed to attracting overseas buyers to this sale have done a remarkable job. Some of the absolute wealthiest racing enthusiasts from North America, Asia, Europe and the Arab Emirates buy at this sale, and for many of them, million dollar purchases are modest amounts relative to their overall wealth. Meanwhile there are many Australian investors pooling their resources to try and be as competitive as they possibly can against them.

That buying strength was reflected by the list of purchasers as they literally come from all over the world, and in many instances syndicates are formed amongst these purchasers to buy particular high-price lots.

It is not the scene to find the little Aussie battler!

Only the top Australian trainers now go to Easter because most know that the will not be competitive. As we mentioned in last month’s report on the Inglis Premier Sale, the prices there are driven up by the simple fact that so many Australian buyers know that if they can’t buy in Melbourne, they have got no chance in Sydney.

In other words, this ultra-strong Easter buying bench is dragging up yearling prices across the board in Australia.

At all sales, there is still an overriding pursuit of quality, so that buyers are prepared to go to extra lengths to buy their preferred lots rather than paying a lesser amount for a less desirable horse. That trend is reflected in the $91,000 gap between the average and the median prices.

The sale’s top-priced lot was a Snitzel full-brother to the very good racehorse, and now stallion, Sizzling. The vendor was NSWROA member John Muir’s Milburn Creek. Snitzel had the top two lots, while Fastnet Rock was the best represented in the top ten lots, having five horses in that group. Sepoy, Redoute’s Choice and Street Cry were the other stallions represented in the top ten club, which also represented the million dollar club.

The strength of the main sale flowed through to the second session, where 121 lots were sold on Thursday afternoon. Once very much a second-tier sale, this year there were ten horses selling at $200,000 and above, up to a top price of $500,000, once again by Snitzel. The buying bench of these top lots proved that international buyers did not go home when the second session started as they bought eight of the top ten lots.

Here the aggregate was $9,085,500, an increase of 14.5% from 2014; the average only increased 0.2% to $94,641, courtesy of the fact that last year, Mossfun’s half-brother sold for $750,000. The median in the second session was up 14.3% to $80,000.

This sale has now evolved into one of the leading, if not the leading, yearling sale in the world, and it is a credit to the quality of Australian bloodstock and Australian racing that so many international participants want to be involved in the Australian industry.

 

CARRAZZO CONSULTING UPDATE: ANOTHER HORSE LOSS REJECTED UNDER NCL RULES



Unfortunately, good tax news does not last long in our industry and after the euphoria of the ATO changing the “GST-free” export rules at the end of last year, out comes a recent AAT decision from Perth that emphasizes the challenge of having horse losses approved for high income earners under the “Non-Commercial Loss” (NCL) rules.

This case dealt with a high income earning Arabian Horse Breeder based in WA who, via the lodging of a private ruling, attempted to have her horse tax losses deducted for the 2012/13 to 2017/18 tax years.

The significance of this case was that the breeder tried to argue that she had started a “new business” in 2008, as by successfully arguing this she would “reset” the time from when her breeding activities had to be viable within a commercially accepted industry “lead time”. She had made breeding losses since her start-up in 2000, but she and her advisers would argue that her “current business” started under a new model in 2008, an argument the AAT ultimately rejected.

The case also again indicates that scale of investment is given little weight under the NCL rules unless the person can provide compelling evidence that the activity will be commercially viable within an acceptable time-frame for the industry concerned. In this case, in excess of $5 million dollars was invested in quality Arabian stock.

Facts
The breeder (hereafter referred to as “HVZZ”) commenced owning and operating a horse breeding business in the 2000 income year. The ATO examined her activities in the 2005 and 2006 income years and, after initially concluding that they did not constitute carrying on a business, conceded that her activities constituted carrying on a business for tax purposes. In 2008, HVZZ expanded her horse breeding activities in ways that included significant capital investment, starting a breeding program and hiring a farm manager.

As the adjusted taxable income of HVZZ now exceeded $250,000 p.a., the only way she could have her horse losses immediately deducted for the 2012/13 to 2017/18 tax years was by way of seeking a successful private ruling with the ATO.

HVZZ duly applied to the ATO for a private ruling in relation to the 2011/2012 to the 2017/2018 income years (though 2011/12 was later removed by HVZZ) Under the NCL rules, the ATO may decide that the non-commercial loss deferral rule does not apply to a business activity for one or more income years if it is satisfied that it would be unreasonable to apply the rule because the business activity has started and:

         • it has not produced, or will not produce tax profits in relevant years, and
         • there is an objective expectation, based on independent evidence, that the activity will produce a tax profit within a period that is commercially viable for the industry.

The ATO issued a ruling that it would not allow the losses to be deducted in the relevant years. HVZZ objected to the ruling, the ATO disallowed the objection and HVZZ applied to the AAT for a review of the decision.

HVZZ contended that the ATO should allowed the losses because she had commenced a new “business activity” from the 2008 year onwards, having expanded in it as described above. She said the business activity would not produce a tax profit in each of the relevant years but there was an objective expectation that it would do so within the commercially viable period for the industry, based on evidence from independent sources.

Decision
The AAT affirmed the ATO’s decision not to grant relief from the non-commercial loss deferral rule. It found that the scheme, as identified by the ATO in the private ruling did not include a “new business activity” commenced in 2008 and there was no objective expectation as to when the business activity, even if it did commence in 2008, would produce tax profits for an income year.

Clearly HVZZ supplying a letter from an independent source that specified a tax profit from breeding horses could be expected in “10–15 years” of commencement did not cut it with the AAT as being a “commercially viable period”. Furthermore, the credentials of the person providing this information was called into question by the AAT on the basis that he was not “….qualified to assess the commercial viability of the business.”

This above observation indicates that the “independent source” used for these private rulings should not only have industry savvy, but the appropriate financial credentials to be able to determine the commercial viability of a business.

What was the “new business activity”?
For reference purposes, HVZZ contended that from 2008 she had a “new business activity”, primarily as a result of:

  1. an investment of significant capital (approximately $6.9 million);
  2. the introduction of new stock (i.e. a switch to the international bloodline Arabian horses), the commencement of an international marketing program and the commencement of a breeding program; and
  3. the employment of an expert farm manager.

 

The business initially started in 2000 on a “very small scale” whilst the infrastructure was being developed.

Prima facie, this shows just how difficult it is to prove to the courts that a “new business activity” has commenced as these arguments were not accepted. The new horses acquired were predominantly yearlings or two year olds and would have a lead time of three to four years to become breeding stock. In the period up until the horses could be bred, they were used to show them, winning titles worldwide and promoting interest in the farm, future breeding program and saleable foals

You are welcome to contact Paul Carrazzo if you wish him to clarify or expand upon any of the matters raised in this release.

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE


Update by Matt Jones, Racing NSW Media & Communications Executive

 

Newcastle horse Powerline was the big BOBS Bonus winner for the month of April and Sempre Libera was just as impressive.  Powerline, trained by Broadmedow’s leading horseman Kris Lees, strode away with $20,000 in BOBS Bonuses with a classy victory in The Championships $100,000 Provincial Series qualifying race at Gosford on April 2.

On the day the son of I Am Invincible made long sustained run from the 600 metres with jockey Tye Angland on board and scored in the final stride from stablemate Jimmy Says Yes.  The win not only helped Powerline climb the BOBS Bonus winners’ ladder with $35,000 behind leader Marple Miss which retains top sport with $45,000 in earnings.  Powerline has now won $105,375 thanks to three wins and two placings from nine starts.

Meanwhile, another top horse to benefit from the BOBS Bonus scheme is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Sempre Libera which secured a $10,000 bonus when winning well at Rosehill Gardens on April 1 with Josh Parr on board.

The Medaglia D’oro two-year-old filly was so impressive in coming from the rear of the field that day that Waterhouse stepped her up to the Group Three Percy Sykes Stakes at The Championships Day 2 where she ran an luckless fourth to Godolphin filly Ottoman with world renowned jockey Joao Moreira on board.  “She was very unlucky,” Moreira said.  “I got stuck behind a horse that didn’t take me into the race. When she got clear she flew home and she should have won the race.”

NEXT TAB SADDLE-UP SUNDAY MEETING – 26 APRIL 2015 – TAMWORTH JOCKEY CLUB



The next TAB Saddle-up Sunday Meeting will be conducted by the Tamworth Jockey Club on Sunday, 26 April 2015 – Tamworth Cup Day.

Tamworth is regarded as a must-see landmark of Country NSW and has even been lauded as the capital of country racing! Whether you’re a country music fan or not, there’s something on offer for everyone at Tamworth Cup Day!

Get trackside and celebrate a great day out for the whole family, featuring Fashions on the Field and plenty of entertainment for the kids with FREE entry for under 18’s!

Located approximately 420km north of Sydney, Tamworth is famous for its annual Country Music Festival but there’s still a hive of activity in April each year with the Tamworth Cup!

This outback town has so much to offer visitors and you will be impressed with the excellent facilities provided by the Tamworth Jockey Club.
