FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

It is almost “post-time” for our flagship event, Racing’s Night of Champions, which will be held in the Royal Randwick Ballroom of the Australian Turf Club next Thursday, 20 August 2015.

I am very proud to advise members that the industry will once again be united at Racing’s Night of Champions with Racing NSW re-joining us for the event.

As members are aware, 2015 is a very special year for the Association – it’s our 50th Anniversary and what better way to celebrate such a momentous occasion than at this gala event which is televised live by Sky Thoroughbred Central.

At the time of writing there were only a few seats remaining – so take my tip and book your place asap or you will miss out on a truly outstanding night.

This year the RNOC Committee have excelled themselves with the prizes on offer.  Some of the many items on offer will be highlighted in an item later in the newsletter.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank the RNOC Committee most sincerely for all their efforts – it is very much appreciated.

A reminder that once again our Charity of Choice for Racing’s Night of Champions is the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation (POWHF).  Last year the funds raised were used to support the care of adolescent women who have had cancer and need care and support with their issues of fertility after cancer treatment.  Special recliner chairs for emergency patients were also provided via pledges on the night.

I look forward to welcoming members to the event.

I would also like to advise members that Mr Phil Morley has recently joined the NSWROA Committee – see the “A Quick Word With” column later in the newsletter.

At the Racing Industry Consultation Group (RICG) Meeting this week, the Association met with Racing Australia and voiced our strong opposition on behalf of our members to the payment mandate which is now to be introduced on the 1st December.  Racing Australia has had subsequent meetings in Adelaide on Wednesday and Perth on Thursday with their respective Owners Associations and again met with strong opposition with the common concern that owners will leave the industry and a major disincentive for new owners to enter industry.  This has national support and we all call on Racing Australia to listen before it's too late and permanent damage is done.

 

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.

A QUICK WORD WITH …… PHIL MORLEY


In late July, the Association was delighted to welcome Phil Morley as a member of the NSWROA Committee. 

By way of introduction I thought we would put Phil “in the spotlight” this issue so members can get to know the newest member of the NSWROA Committee.

1.         Firstly, congratulations Phil on your appointment to the NSWROA Committee.
A.        Thank you.  When I was asked if I was interested in joining the Association as a Director I was more than happy to do so as I believe the Association is the perfect vehicle to have a strong representative voice for racehorse owners in NSW.  I know this is not new however with a concerted effort to attach new members to the NSWROA, and success in growing the membership, will achieve a much stronger position to seek a better deal for owners.

2.         What was your “introduction” into the racing industry?
A.        My first introduction into the industry was as a stablehand in Toowoomba with Gordon Neil at the age of 14 and from there I progressed to riding track work.  I started riding at the age of 6 and my love of horses has continued through my life.

3.         Why did you decide to become a racehorse owner?
A.        My wife Enid was involved in the ownership of a very nice mare called Enrichment (the granddam of Little Bridge, a Group 1 winner at Ascot) that was in 1995 and from that point our ownership has continued.

4.         How many horses do you currently race?
A.        We currently have shared ownership in 4 horses all trained by David Payne at Rosehill. Terrubi a group winning French import, Over The Air a very promising 3-year-old and two 2-year-olds French Fern & Crimson Halo.  We are involved with a great group of owners all of whom are long term clients of David.

5.         Who has been the “best” horse you have owned?
A.        Our best horse so far was Praecido who ran 2nd in the 2010 Group 1 Victoria Derby and was group placed on 6 occasions.  He cost $54k and won $685k.

6.         Who has been the “best” horse you have seen?
A.        Best horse I have ever seen - 'That's a hard call'.  Galileo, Frankel, Makybe Diva, Lonhro?  Where do you start and finish?

7.         What has been your most memorable moment on a racecourse?
A.        The most memorable moment – undoubtedly the 2010 Group 1 Victoria Derby with Praecido turning for home running in third last place 20 lengths from the leader.  Then down the Flemington straight he passed all but one horse, Lion Tamer, the winner.

8.         What is your “vision” for the industry?
A.        My vision for the industry - Racing that is rewarding both for the pure joy of owning a winner and an industry that attracts new younger participants.
           
9.         If you were down to your last $20.00 – what would you spend it on? 
A.        Down to my last $20 - I would leave it in my pocket, $20 is better than nothing!

CARRAZZO CONSULTING UPDATE: MARE AND STALLION WRITE-OFFS - FAQ



Welcome to the new tax year!

Let’s start the 2016 tax year with some positive tax news with a discussion of the generous mare and stallion write-off rules relating to eligible breeding stock. In tax world, these are referred to as the “special closing value” rules.

Carrazzo Consulting is regularly asked to review the horse tax accounts of breeders and it still amazes me as to how poorly these rules are applied by the general tax community, so let’s hope this contribution clarifies the many misinterpretations of these rules that are out there.

N.B. All of these questions assume that the breeder is conducting a legitimate horse business for taxation purposes.

 

Q1. – I have future broodmare in training, can we apply the “write-off” rules whilst she is still racing?

Answer

No.

The mare must not only be “capable” of breeding, but it must also be “used” for that purpose.

The same principle also applies to a stallion in training.

 

Q2. – I was gifted a lovely commercial mare by a friend to add to my breeding herd, can I use the “write-off” rules for her?

Answer

No.

Only breeding stock acquired “under a contract” can be subject to the “write-off” rules.

The fact that a horse must be acquired by the taxpayer “under a contract” means that a horse acquired in some other way, e.g. by way of gift, inheritance or natural increase, cannot qualify as horse breeding stock for the purpose of these rules.

For instance, a filly acquired via natural increase that is raced first by the breeder cannot have the “write-off” rules applied when she eventually goes to the breeding barn.

 

Q3 - If I acquired a broodmare that was bred overseas to Northern Hemisphere time, what is her “date of birth” for the purposes of the “write-off” rules?

Answer

The Tax Act does take account of this situation as it states that a horse which is foaled on 1 August has a birth date of that date and the birth date of a horse foaled on any other date is the 1 August immediately preceding the date it was foaled.
For instance:

(1) A horse foaled on 1 September 1992 has a birth date of 1 August 1992.
(2) A horse foaled on 31 March1993 (i.e. to Northern Hemisphere time) has a birth date of 1 August 1992.
(3) A horse foaled on 1 August 1992 has a birth date of 1 August 1992.

 

Q4. I own a successful engineering business in a company and I’ve just bought some costly horses in that same company, does this mean that the horses are also a ‘business’?

Answer

If this mare was owned by the breeder for the whole of the tax year (i.e. acquired on 1 July) and the horse is under 12 years of age, the horse reduction (i.e. “write-off”) amount is calculated as follows:
  
                                                   base amount  
Mare “write-off” amount =        ---------------
                                                    reduction factor

The ''base amount'' is the lesser of the cost of the horse and the ''undeducted cost''. The ''undeducted cost'' of a horse is, broadly speaking, the notional depreciated value of the horse.

The ''reduction factor'' is the greater of three and the difference between 12 and the horse's age when the breeder acquired it. Thus, under this rule, a mare acquired at either age 10 or 11 can only be written-off at the maximum rate off 33.33% p.a.

Example 1 - 7 year old broodmare

Assume that: 

  • a breeder acquires a mare under a contract made on 1 September 2015;
  • the cost of the mare is $100,000; and 
  • the birth date of the mare is 1 August 2008.

The “write-off” amount for the year ended 30 June 2016 is:   

            $100,000         303
             ----------    x      ----
              12 - 7             365

            = $16,602

As the mare is acquired part way through the year (i.e. 1 September 2015), the “write-off” amount is pro-rated.
            
The “write-off” amount for each subsequent year is: 
 
                         $100,000           
                            -------        =  $20,000
                           12 - 7      

 

Q5. I have a big tax problem and I hear that “older mares” can be written down to $1 in the year acquired, is this correct?

Answer

Yes, but the mare must by 12 or older when acquired or must turn 12 years of age within the tax year that you buy her.

Furthermore, the “write-off” need not be “pro-rated”. Thus, a 13 year old mare acquired on 29 June 2016 can be written-down to $1 on 30 June 2016.

 

Q6. If I have one mare valued under the “write-off” provisions, do they all have to be?

Answer

No, the other mares can be valued under the other valuation options available, e.g. cost. The same rules also applies to stallions.

 

Q7. If I buy a mare “in-foal”, what cost is her “write-off” based upon? Is her cost reduced by the value of the foal she is carrying?

Answer

The mare’s cost for “write-off” purposes is not reduced to take account of any foal being carried. The trading stock provisions do not differentiate between a pregnant broodmare and one that is not pregnant.

 

Q8. My commercial breeding farm has just acquired a new stallion, what “write-off” options do I have for him?

Answer

This stallion can be written-off at up to 25% p.a. on a prime cost basis.

N.B. Stallion shares acquired by a breeder can also apply this stallion “write-off” option.

 

<

Q9. My breeding business owns 50% of a mare, which originally cost me $50,000. The other 50% was recently sold for $200,000. Can I revalue my 50% interest to $200,000 and claim a higher “write-off” amount?

Answer

No, only unless that mare is transferred to another breeding entity. Though, tax consequences of such a transfer must be considered.

 

Q10. If I am using the “write-off” rules for a particular mare or stallion and decide it is not the best valuation method as its current market selling value is well below the closing value these rules are providing, can I switch to the “market selling value” method in the next tax year?

Answer

Yes, you can.

A breeder is at liberty to change their “closing stock valuation” method on a yearly basis, i.e. they aren’t stuck with the write-off rules forever if they doesn’t suit a particular breeding horse.

INDUSTRY UPDATES

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

BOBS Racehorse Nominations Close 1 September
BOBS Racehorse nominations for 2015 will close on Tuesday 1 September 2015 for horses foaled in 2013 that turned two-year-olds on 1 August 2015. Click here for further information.

Changes to whip rules
Racing Australia will amend the rules governing the use of the whip as from 1 December, 2015.  The Board, composed of Chairs of Australia’s Principal Racing Authorities, has considered the issues for a lengthy period. It has consulted with various stakeholders including the Australian Jockeys Association which made written and verbal submissions to the Board.  In respect of Australian Rule of Racing AR.137A, the Board has decided:

1. To remove the distinction between forehand and backhand whip strikes so that there is a limit of five forehand or backhand whip strikes prior to the 100 metres.

2. To introduce stronger penalties for whip offences including greater emphasis on suspensions for serious breaches and for breaches in Group and Listed races.

3. The Chairmen of Stewards Committee to develop a uniform Penalty Template in the form of the current Careless Riding Penalty Template which ensures consistency across jurisdictions

4. Amendments to AR.137A to come into force on 1 December, 2015 to enable an education initiative to be undertaken to advise jockeys of their strict liability under the new whip rule with training programs for apprentices to be a focus.

New Racing Australia Appointments
Racing Australia have announced that Thoroughbred Racing South Australia (TRSA) Chair Frances Nelson QC has been elected Deputy Chair of the Racing Australia Board.  The Racing Australia Directors represent Australia’s 8 Principal Racing Authorities.  Racing Victoria Chair David Moodie has also been appointed the new Chair of the Australian Pattern Committee.  Both positions became vacant on the recent resignation of Kevin Dixon from the Racing Australia Board.

 

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE


Update by Matt Jones, Racing NSW Media & Communications Executive

 

Kimberly Star announced herself at one of Sydney’s form horses during the winter with a number of classy performances for her trainer Gai Waterhouse.

The Star Witness three-year-old won three-straight races in July and early August and earned $20,000 in BOBS Bonuses at her last win to take her BOBS winnings total to $50,000.

Blake Shinn has partnered the filly at all three of her wins this campaign including a fabulous three-length win at Rosehill on August 1, where she sat just behind the leaders before unleashing her powerful sprint at the 250-metre mark to put the field to bed.  “She beat the ‘boys’ too at her last two starts,” Waterhouse said after the win.  “There were a couple of impressively-bred colts in the race and she dismissed them that easily it wasn’t funny.  “She is a serious filly.  Shinn said Kimberly Star was a talented filly which was “making good progress”.

At the same meeting another horse earned $20,000 in BOBS Bonuses when the Chris Waller-trained Japonisme romped in to win The Tradie Magazine Handicap by four lengths.  Returning Hong Kong-based jockey Nash Rawiller rode the Choisir three-year-old and didn’t have to let her go until the 250-metre mark where she put a few lengths on the field before being eased up in the final stages to record an easy win. The win brought up career earnings of $183,365 with $50,000 of that coming by of the way of BOBS Bonuses.

Meanwhile, another in-form horse to benefit from the BOBS Bonus scheme is the Matthew Dale-trained Fell Swoop.  The Not A Single Doubt four-year-old earned $20,000 in BOBS Bonuses after winning the Selleys Handicap (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens on August 1.  Again, it was Shinn who piloted the winning horse home.
