FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

Some members have enquired as to whether the Association has a position in relation to the issue of Cobalt use in the industry.

Let me assure you that as soon as the issue became public your Association was quick to act.

The matter was raised at the Racing Industry Consultation Group (RICG) and an expeditious resolution was sought in the interests of owners and the industry at large.

Representations have also been made on behalf of some individual owners.

As the matter is still currently under investigation, some information must remain strictly confidential at this stage.

We believe that it is essential that strong guidelines are in place and that a level playing field is established for trainers and owners.

We will continue to monitor the situation in your interests.  The welfare of our horses is of course of paramount importance as well.

You may be aware that Racing NSW is currently undertaking a review of Handicapping and Benchmarking.

Following excellent work done by former Committee Member Mr Louis Mihalyka, the Association was again quick out of the blocks and has made a submission to Racing NSW and RICG.

We will endeavour to keep you informed of developments and assess the likely impact of changes made and/or recommended.

 

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

KARAKA PREMIER YEARLING AND INGLIS CLASSIC YEARLING SALES REPORTS


Former NSWROA Committee member, Mr Louis Mihalyka of Laurel Oak Bloodstock, attended both the Karaka Premier Yearling Sale in New Zealand and the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale (Summer Book) and has kindly prepared for the interest of members, the following item.

* * * * * *

Karaka Premier Sale

Unlike the lead-in to the Magic Millions, there was a somewhat pessimistic mood leading into the 2015 Karaka Yearling Sale in New Zealand. On the three days leading into the start of the sale, inspections seemed down and it felt like the number of people there was well down on previous years.

However “Build it and they will come”, as the saying goes. It seems that those that were there were there with real purpose, but also on the morning of the sale’s Monday start, the carpark was full, so it seemed that many buyers simply turned up on the day of the sale.

Once the sale started, any pessimistic sentiment quickly dissipated, and it became a typically strong Karaka Premier Sale.

The number of horses offered was down from 418 in 2013 to 400, and with a drop in the clearance rate from 78% to 75%, the number of horses actually sold dropped from 326 to 298. This saw a drop in aggregate from $NZ47.1 million to $NZ44.9 million. However the average increased 4.4% from $NZ144,548 to $NZ150,881. With it, the median also increased 9.1% from $NZ110,000 to $NZ120,000.

Typical of yearling sales in recent years, the strength of the sale was evident when you tried to buy a sought-after lot, and there were usually many people on the horse and prepared to pay a premium to secure it.

Fastnet Rock provided the top-priced lot for the fourth year in succession, with an $NZ800,000 filly (the same price as last year’s sale topper), selling to the sale’s leading buyer, David Ellis, from Te Akau Racing, who outbid David Hayes for the top lot.

Waikato Stud defended its “Leading Vendor” crown, while the leading first-season sire by average was So You Think, whose five progeny sold averaged $NZ190,000.

Pre-sale sentiment suggested that New Zealand breeding is in somewhat of a limbo state with regard to stallions. With Zabeel and O’Reilly near the end of their careers, Savabeel was emerging as the leading proven New Zealand sire. While he has an excellent record, he doesn’t have the same sales hype as particularly Zabeel had in the past. The spread of sires was evidenced by the sale’s top ten lots, where eight different stallions were represented. Only Fastnet Rock, with three entries, had multiple representation in those top ten lots.

The attraction of the New Zealand sale remains the outstanding sales complex, coupled with the best vendor hospitality in Australasia, combined with well-presented horse flesh. The New Zealand female families are still seen to provide more depth of stamina than Australian pedigrees, which helps the sale retain its appeal. That gap is now closing though, and included in the top-priced lots we now regularly see Australian-bred horses that were purchased in Australia as weanlings by New Zealand farms for re-sale at Karaka.

The sentimental highlight of the sale was the last two Zabeels to be sold at public auction. The very last was offered by Cambridge Stud and was led into the sale ring by Sir Patrick Hogan. That colt sold for $NZ160k to Gene Tsoi of Hong Kong and left the ring to rapturous applause, acknowledging the mighty contribution that Zabeel has made to the New Zealand breeding industry.

 

Inglis Classic Sale

This year, the Inglis Classic Sale moved from its recent position between the Magic Millions and Karaka Sales to nine days after Karaka. The impact on the results will likely see that as a permanent move.

One thing that was very apparent from the time inspections started was the number of New Zealand vendors who were rolling their Karaka Sale proceeds into Classic yearling purchases, which they will in turn prepare for the Karaka Ready-To-Run Sale in November.

Australian buyers also had a better chance to place their horses, re-group and go again with the almost one-month gap from the conclusion of the Magic Millions. Both factors had a very positive impact on demand.

The sale also increased the number of yearlings on offer and became a three-day sale instead of a two-day sale. 535 yearlings were offered compared to 444 last year. The clearance rate remained a high 84%, resulting in 459 yearlings sold compared to 375 last year. This flowed through to a 47% increase in aggregate from $13 million to $19.2 million. The average increased 20% from $34,719 to $41,782. The median increased 15% from $26,000 to $30,000.

Last year’s top-priced lot was $200,000, but this year three horses surpassed that, with the honour of the top-priced yearling going to the Kiwi-based Per Incanto for $310,000.

With so many buyers looking to buy horses, either immediately or for future trading into the Asian market, there was a noticeably greater demand for colts than fillies. That was evidenced by the fact that there were nine colts compared to one filly in the top ten lots.

This sale also has great appeal to Australian trainers and buyers who don’t feel competitive at the Magic Millions or Easter. That was evidenced by the fact that there were 240 individual buyers at the sale from all Australian states, as well as New Zealand, Hong Kong, China and South Africa. Also there was no dominant stallion, as 27 yearlings by sixteen different sires sold for $100,000 or more. Of the top ten lots sold, I Am Invincible had three representatives, while Smart Missile had two, and five other stallions had one each.

This sale traditionally produces a number of high-quality horses purchased at modest prices, and I am sure that trend will continue into the future.

 

IMPLICATIONS OF HENDRA VIRUS VACCINATION FOR HORSE INSURANCE


A reminder to members that our good friend and corporate partner Gow-Gates Insurance Brokers, via Kingsley Edwards, have kindly prepared the following information for the benefit of members.

* * * * * *

Some confusion has recently arisen among racehorse owners regarding the implications on horse insurance policies of the Hendra Virus vaccination.  The following factual information on this matter is provided to respond to those concerns.

Hendra Virus is found in certain flying fox species in all mainland States of Australia, although to date it has only affected horses in New South Wales and Queensland.  The virus is transmitted by the excretion of bodily fluids which can infect exposed horses and, in turn, can then be transmitted to humans.  There have been over 50 outbreaks of Hendra Virus since it first appeared at Vic Rail’s stables in September 1994, where the trainer and 14 of his horses died from the virus.  Overall, a total of 83 horses and four people have died from the virus.  The mortality rate among horses is 75% and for humans is 60%; there is no known effective treatment. 

A vaccine was developed by CSIRO in conjunction Zoetis, who manufacture the vaccine, known as “Equivac HeV”, and made available in November 2012.  The Government authorities have endorsed the vaccine, and are committed to the importance of its use, as the single most effective way of reducing the risk of Hendra Virus infection in horses and thus providing work health and safety benefits to those people who have contact with horses on a day-to-day basis.

Over 300,000 horses (of all breeds) have been vaccinated across Australia in that time.  It is not a “live vaccine” so horses cannot contract Hendra Virus from vaccination.  As with all vaccines in all species, reactions to the vaccine do occur, however the reaction rate is a comparatively low 0.28%, with the vast majority experiencing some neck swelling or other minor complaints.  There have been no reported cases of death from the vaccine or evidence that it impacts racetrack performance.

Bloodstock Mortality insurance policies have until recently covered death as a result of the Hendra Virus, however insurers at Lloyd’s in London and most other equine insurers are now applying an exclusion on new insurance policies and on renewal of expiring policies as they fall due.  The Lloyd’s policy specifies that death caused by the Hendra Virus is not covered unless the horse has an up-to-date Hendra vaccination.   There is also no cover if the horse dies as a result of a Vet declining to treat the horse because it does not have an up-to-date Hendra vaccination.  The exclusion has been introduced largely in response to Work Health & Safety (WHS) issues raised by Equine Veterinarians Australia (EVA). 

In order to protect vets and their staff from Hendra Virus infection, many vet clinics will not treat horses which have not been vaccinated because Hendra Virus has non-specific clinical signs and the results from an exclusion test take between 24 & 72 hours.  In such circumstances, the waiting required time before treatment can be administered or surgery performed may therefore contribute to the death of the horse. 

This creates an issue with the standard bloodstock mortality insurance policy which includes a condition that an ill or injured horse must be treated by a Vet immediately.  As a consequence, the owner of a non-vaccinated horse that is refused treatment by a vet and subsequently dies, has not fulfilled the policy conditions and so cannot claim under the policy.

It is therefore recommended that racehorse owners with insured horses should check with their broker or insurer as to whether an exclusion relating to Hendra Virus applies to that policy, and if so, the nature of that exclusion and how it may affect a claim.

Disclaimer: The information in the above article is intended as a guide only and should not be relied upon without the consulting the relevant policy wordings and seeking professional advice.

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE


Update by Matt Jones, Racing NSW Media & Communications Executive

 

The Sam Kavanagh-trained Centre Pivot took his BOBS cash earnings to $45,000 following an impressive win at Rosehill Gardens earlier this month.

Centre Pivot’s race record prior to this preparation included a number of placings for just one win, but he’s turned the tables this summer.  The More Than Ready four-year-old earned his BOBS Extra bonus with a typical charge from the rear of the field as he flew past leader Black Jag to score by half a length with James McDonald on board.

Centre Pivot has now won five races from 12 starts with four wins coming since December and Kavanagh will test him against black-type horses after easily sweeping through his grades over recent months.

Meanwhile, another red-hot BOBS horse, the Kris Lees-trained Marple Miss, brought up a hat-trick of wins at Rosehill just 40 minutes before Centre Pivot saluted.

The Not a Single Doubt Filly was looking to continue her city form following a breakthrough metropolitan win at Royal Randwick a fortnight earlier and she showed plenty of fight to secure a $20,000 BOBS bonus.

Marple Miss sat just outside leader Kontiki Dane before apprentice Samantha Clenton let her loose as the field entered the straight.

For a moment it looked like the backmarkers would pounce and have one last shot at her on the line, but she kicked again for Clenton to record a strong 1¼-length victory from another BOBS hopeful, the Tony McEvoy-trained Manoeuvring.
