FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

Since the last newsletter, and after having heard from several members on the subject, I felt the need to put pen to paper on an issue that is not only very important to those members, but one that is also close to my heart.

The issue is whether racing in New South Wales is becoming a mirror image of racing in the United Kingdom in that it is becoming elitist.

It is becoming increasingly difficult for the average owner to survive as costs continue to escalate.  The days of being able to afford a one-sixth share in the racing of a thoroughbred may become a thing of the past.

With prizemoney for racing in the State primarily being focused on metropolitan racing and, in particular The Championships, country and provincial owners continue to suffer.  Surely it is better for the industry as a whole for prizemoney to be distributed throughout the State on a more equitable basis. 

Having said that, I acknowledge that The Championships were expanded this year to include both a Provincial and a Country series.  The success of both of these components only strengthens the argument that the whole State needs to benefit from increased prizemoney.  I think I am right in saying that all the heats in both the Provincial and Country series generated substantial increases in turnover to those participating clubs.  It follows that if prizemoney was increased in country and provincial areas, greater turnover would be generated.

Both myself and the Committee would be interested in hearing more on this topic from our members.  I am aware that the Government intends to ensure that any additional funds made available from taxation relief should be directed not only into prizemoney but investment in infrastructure and maintenance of facilities.  The Association fully supports this approach.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank owners for the strong support we have received expressing your outrage at the introduction of the Payment Mandate.  Be assured that the Association will continue to fight on your behalf.

And in closing my column this month I couldn’t do so without mentioning one the industry’s finest – Mr Ken Callander.  As members may be aware, Ken recently resigned from the Daily Telegraph after a career spanning, to the best of my knowledge, some 53 years.  I am sure I speak for all racing followers when I say thank you to Ken for the excellent service he has given us during this time.  He is without doubt one of the best writers our industry has had and he will be sorely missed.

WAGGA WAGGA GOLD CUP CARNIVAL – ANOTHER GREAT SUCCESS

As part of the Association’s commitment to support our country colleagues, the Association continued our sponsorship at the Wagga Wagga Gold Cup Carnival in 2015.

This year we sponsored the NSW Racehorse Owners Association Maiden Handicap over 1400 metres on Town Plate Day – April 30.  Town Plate Day is of course part of the Murrumbidgee Turf Club’s prestigious Wagga Wagga Gold Cup Carnival which commenced on 12th April with Prelude Day and concluded on 1st May for Cup Day.

The NSW Racehorse Owners Association Maiden Handicap was taken out by La Bella Rouge (Ready’s Image(USA)-Classic Conquest(USA)) from Obvious Twist with Bad Boy Brown in third position.

Day 1 of the Carnival – Prelude Day saw NSWROA Members take out the first race of the carnival with Flash in the Dark.  The lucky owners of Flash in the Dark are Laurel Oak Bloodstock, Mrs J Mihalyka, Mr L Mihalyka, Mr F & Mrs C Cook, Mr T Millard, Mr M Naprta, Mr L & Mrs K Carpenter and Mr C Reynolds.

Whilst our membership was unsuccessful on Town Plate Day, members saluted on three occasions on Wagga Wagga Gold Cup day.  Mr R Kemister scored with Heavens Above, Mr A Cardy with Old Habits whilst Mr G Harvey was successful with Landlocked (NZ) in the feature race of the Carnival, the Listed Wagga Wagga Gold Cup.

Landlocked (NZ) (Zabeel(NZ)-Secover) who is trained by Joe Cleary scored by a length from Faust (NZ) owned by NSWROA member Mr A Cardy with Gypsy Diamond in third place.

Our congratulations to all the winners and also to the Murrumbidgee Turf Club on another very successful Carnival.

 

AUTUMN CARNIVAL FUNCTION

We were delighted to welcome guests to our annual Autumn Carnival Function in Suite E of the Level 2 Ballroom of the Grandstand at Royal Randwick on 18 April 2015.

This year our event took place on the last day of the Carnival – Stakes Day – which had six Group races on the card highlighted by the Group 1 All Aged Stakes and the Group 1 Champagne Stakes. 

As we have come to expect at this event, the catering was again a highlight.  My thanks to all at the ATC who provided a wonderful array of food for the buffet style function.  Particular thanks to Clinton Valmont, who looked after us for the afternoon and, as always, Roger Brassington for his valuable assistance. 

Our ever popular competitions were once again conducted with the lucky winners being Jane Pitman for Best Hat and Peter Ashton for Best Tie as well as collecting first prize in the raffle.

The Tipping Competition also took place with monetary returns to all three placegetters.  In what was a very close contest that went “down to the wire”, our winner was Phil Ward with 14 points, 2nd place to Glenn Patterson on 13 points whilst there was a five-way tie for third place between Norman Blundell, Claire Murphy, Julie Steel, Jo Marretta and Ray McDowell all finishing with 12 points.

CARRAZZO CONSULTING UPDATE: BUDGET 2015 AND THE RACING INDUSTRY



Ok, the colour and movement of Budget 2015 night is now behind us and, to save you (and possibly your tax adviser) the hassle of reading through all of the published measures and analysis, I provide below a quick snapshot as to what tax and other measures affect the breeding and racing industry the most. Enjoy!

1. Accelerated depreciation for primary producers

 Thoroughbred breeders are categorized as “primary producers” for tax purposes.

Crucial farm infrastructure such as fences and water facilities are now subject to special write-off rules from on or after 1 July 2016.

This Budget will allow primary producers to:

  • Obtain an immediate 100% tax deduction for capital expenditure on fencing and water facilities such as dams, tanks, bores, irrigation channels, pumps, water towers and windmills; and
  • Depreciate all capital expenditure on fodder storage assets such as silos and tanks used to store and other animal feed over three years.

 

2. Accelerated depreciation for “small business”

For reference, a “small business” for tax purposes has aggregated annual turnover of less than $2 million dollars.

From Budget night, a small business can obtain an immediate 100% tax deduction for assets they acquire that cost less than $20,000 (previously $1,000).

This generous concession only applies to assets acquired and installed ready for use by 30 June 2017.

N.B. This concession only relates to depreciable plant and not the acquisition of stock (unless, in the rare instance, you have a “stand-alone” horse racing business (preferably ATO approved) with no associated breeding).

These new rules do not apply to horticultural plant or software.

 

3. GST-free treatment of farmland

Good news – the government will not proceed with the previously announced but not enacted measure to replace the current GST-free treatment for the supplies of farmland and going concerns with a reverse charge mechanism. This measure was set aside when it became apparent that the measure would have resulted in adverse consequences for the farming industry.

 

4. Tax cuts for “small business” companies and sole traders

From 1 July 2015, the government will deliver a tax cut to small businesses:

  • Reduction in company tax rates

The company tax rate will be reduced to 28.5% (i.e. a reduction of 1.5%).

  • 5% discount on tax payable for sole traders

Individual persons with a small business will be eligible for a small business tax discount. The discount will be 5% of the income tax payable on the business income received by a sole trader. (i.e. an unincorporated small business entity).

The discount will be capped at $1,000 per individual and will be delivered via a tax offset.

 

5. Immediate deduction for professional expenses on commencing a new business

There are many new horse businesses starting and this is a worthwhile measure.

From 1 July 2015, the government will allow businesses to claim an immediate write-off for a range of professional expenses associated with starting a new business, such as professional, legal and accounting advice.

Currently these “formation expenses” are only deductible over a 5 year period.

 

6. Claiming car expenses – modernising the existing expense claim methods

From 1 July 2015, the government will modernize the methods for claiming work-related expenses for an individual (or a partnership which includes at least one individual partner), as follows:

  • The scarcely used ’12% of original value method’ and the ‘1/3rd of actual expenses method’ will be removed.
  • The ‘cents per kilometre method’ is used by many racing industry players and will be modernised by replacing the three current (cents per kilometre) rates based on engine size, with  one rate set at 66 cents per kilometre (in respect of all cars).

The existing ‘log book method’ remains as is.

 

7. More scrutiny and greater transparency for agricultural investments

The Government is also delivering on its commitment to increase scrutiny and transparency around foreign investment in agriculture.

From 1 March 2015, the screening threshold for agricultural land was lowered to $15 million (applying to total agricultural land investment by an investor) — down from $252 million — while the definition of agricultural land will be changed to better reflect common understanding.

A new $55 million screening threshold (based on the value of investment) will apply from 1 December 2015 to investments in agribusiness.

The Government expects that the additional scrutiny of agricultural investments will provide confidence to the community that investments are not contrary to our national interest.

 

8. CGT relief for small business restructures

Small businesses will be able to change their legal structure without attracting CGT liability at that point. Currently CGT ‘roll-over’ relief is only available for individuals who become companies, but other entity type changes have the potential to trigger CGT liability.

This measure will assist small businesses to change to a more suitable legal structure as the business becomes more established. For instance, many breeders convert from individuals to trusts for reasons of asset protection and greater tax efficiency.

 

In the weeks and months ahead I will expand on the above measures as greater details from the Government come to hand.

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

As you would be aware this prestigious event is themed “Celebrating The Best” and 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.

See under for advance details of the function.

 

INDUSTRY UPDATES

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

Changes to metropolitan meetings for July, 2015
Racing NSW have announced the following changes to venues and programmes for upcoming July 2015 Metropolitan meetings due to the unavailability of some tracks:

Wednesday 22nd July 2015 was Canterbury now Warwick Farm
Saturday 25th July 2015 was Kensington now Canterbury
Wednesday 29th July 2015 was Warwick Farm now Canterbury

The following amendments are made to the programmes:

WEDNESDAY 22ND JULY 2015 – WARWICK FARM
Benchmark 70 Handicap (1550m) is now 1600m
Benchmark 70 Handicap (1900m) is now 2200m
3yo Benchmark 70 Handicap (1900m) is now 2100m
3yo Maiden Handicap (1200m) is now 1400m
2yo Maiden Plate (1250m) is now 1300m

SATURDAY 25TH JULY 2015 – CANTERBURY
Benchmark 95 Handicap (1800m) is now 1900m
Benchmark 85 Handicap (1400m) is now 1250m
F&M Benchmark 85 Handicap (1150m) is now 1100m
3yo Benchmark 75 Handicap (1300m) is now 1250m
2yo Handicap (1300m) is now 1250m

WEDNESDAY 29TH JULY 2015 – CANTERBURY

F&M Benchmark 75 Handicap (1600m) is now 1550m
3yo Maiden Plate (1400m) is now 1250m

New State of the Art Drug Detection Equipment
Racing NSW has further strengthened its drug detection processes by purchasing $1.5 million of new equipment which will be able to screen for more than 8,000 different types of drugs, in any single analysis of the swab.  It was only a few years ago where a swab could only screen for a few hundred drugs, at any one time, with the analyst having to stipulate which drugs would be tested for in advance.  The further advantage of this new equipment is that it tests for 8,000 drugs automatically without the analyst stipulating in advance the drugs to be tested for.

Aged Horses – Introduction of a Retirement Age
With effect from 1 August 2015, AR45B has been replaced and the new rule effectively retires horses at the commencement of their 12-year-old season, except that they may race through their 12-year-old racing season with the express permission of the Stewards and subject to stringent veterinary requirements.

 

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE


Update by Matt Jones, Racing NSW Media & Communications Executive

 

Three horses secured $20,000 in BOBS Bonuses in May, and a new equal leader in the series emerged from the trio.  All three earned their $20,000 BOBS Bonuses at the Rosehill Gardens meeting on May 9.

The Team Hawkes-trained Kaepernick joined Marple Miss at the top of BOBS earners this season at $45,000 after taking out the Rexel Handicap (1200m) with Jay Ford on board.  The Fastnet Rock three-year-old was last on the turn, but Ford gathered him together in the straight and when he loomed up to the leaders at the 150 metres the race was over and he beat Good Project by three quarters of a length.  The win took Kaepernick’s career earnings to $162,000 from three wins in six starts with $45,000 of that prizemoney coming in the way of BOBS Bonuses.

Earlier that day it was Skyclad ($13) and High Midnight ($8) which secured $20,000 each in BOBS Bonuses by taking out races one and two respectively.

Skyclad was ridden by Brenton Avdulla for trainer Gerald Ryan and despite taking on fancied runner Stravigo from the Peter and Paul Snowden stable, Avdualla dictated terms in the lead before unleashing the Snitzel two-year-old in the straight.  He scored by a length from Lycia and has now won $77,100 in prizemoney from just two starts with a win and a third.

High Midnight added $20,000 in BOBS Bonuses to his career prizemoney just 35 minutes later when winning the Power Access Handicap (1900m) for trainers Bart and James Cummings.  Tim Clark took the ride and had the three-year-old in a perfect spot on the fence behind leader One Touch.  When One Tough peeled off the fence at the home turn it gave High Midnight a perfect passage up the rail and he went on pinch a handy lead before winning by a long neck from the fast-finishing Rustic Melody.  The win pushed High Midnight’s career earnings to just shy of $100,000 with $25,000 coming in BOBS Bonuses.
