Following on from my column last month, I am pleased to advise members that the efforts of your Association have come to fruition recently on an issue which has involved a lot of hard work.

Over many years the Association itself and, via its representation on the Racing Industry Consultation Group (RICG), has been continually lobbying for the abolition of nomination and acceptance fees in Group and Listed races. I am very pleased to advise members that the Australian Turf Club (ATC) has recently announced that they will be eliminating both nomination and acceptance fees for all Listed Races at ATC tracks as and from 1 August 2016.

This is a great result for Owners and we congratulate the ATC on their commitment to reducing costs for Owners. This decision, which is in line with the 2014 Racing NSW Strategic Plan, will hopefully lead to increased participation in Listed Races.

Your Association is hopeful that this is merely the first step to implementing this in Group racing as well which has been our goal from the start.

In more good news for Owners, from 1 July 2016 minimum prizemoney for Country TAB and Provincial races has been increased. Provincial meetings have been increased by $5,000 or 23% to $27,000 per race. In Country TAB meetings prizemoney has been increased from $15,000 to $20,000 which is also an increase of $5,000 or 33%.

Country Showcase meetings will commence at various courses throughout NSW next month. Showcase meetings will offer a minimum of $30,000 per race in prizemoney. Further details regarding this initiative will appear later in the newsletter in the Industry Updates column.

And in closing with the impending review of whip rules currently underway, it is the Association’s intention to monitor the proposals and make submissions to the Sub-Committee formed by Racing Australia on this issue.

As advised previously in 2016 we will introduce some members and Life Members to the readership via the “A Quick Word with ….” column in the newsletter.

This month, Life Member Michael Kissane, is “in the spotlight”.


1. Michael, what was your “introduction” into the racing industry?

On a Sunday drive to the Hunter Valley for lunch in the late 1970s I found myself at the Scone Sales. Knowing little about breeding or conformation, I finished up with an $800 yearling by Ifni which turned out to be a reasonable provincial performer. He was trained in Muswellbrook by Noel Englebrecht and raced as "Ifinbrook". He won about eight races including wins in Sydney and Newcastle at very long odds.

2. Why did you decide to become a racehorse owner?

I enjoyed the spectacle and excitement of the industry and also the 'occasional' bet. The eclectic mix of people was also fun to be around. There was, at least for me, no financial commonsense about my involvement. I owned and shared interests with many others in horses from the 1980s to around 2005. The capacity to share the excitement of success with others was very special.

3. How many horses do you currently race?

I have had years of fun and now am retired from ownership. I dabbled unsuccessfully with breeding and still have a 28 year old broodmare on a Camden property.

4. Which has been the “best” horse you have owned?

There were two. A syndicated horse, "Under Oath", which was trained by Colin Hayes. He could hold his own in Group 3 and 2 company winning the Coongy Handicap, running second in the Australian Cup and a 'fine' last in the Melbourne Cup. I must mention "The Brotherhood" trained by Les Bridge. I had a quarter share in it. My judgment was so good, I sold my share for next to nothing and the horse then went on to win the Newcastle Gold Cup, the Moonee Valley Gold Cup and ran seventh in the Melbourne Cup, all in the same year!

5. Who has been the “best” horse you have seen?

This is probably not a popular choice, but the ill-fated "Dulcify" (from yesteryear) trained by Colin Hayes. Today it would be "Winx" the mare by “Street Cry" trained by Chris Waller.

6. What has been your most memorable moment on a racecourse?

From a personal point of view, seeing the first horse I owned win a Wednesday race at Rosehill at long odds. There have really been too many but it is hard to beat Derby Day at Flemington and in the distant past, seeing the likes of "Purple Patch" coming from last on the turn at Randwick.

7. What is your “vision” for the industry?

To continue to grow and prosper. I believe the industry is in very good hands. I think a lot of people in the community do not appreciate how many people the industry actually employs.

8. If you were down to your last $20.00 – what would you spend it on?

Probably green fees on a golf course somewhere.

And the final say, I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the Board of the NSWROA.




The countdown is on for the Association’s flagship event Racing’s Night of Champions which will be held on Thursday 18 August 2016 at the home of racing, Royal Randwick, and you’re invited.

Our good friend, NSWROA member and ATC Heritage Society volunteer, Mr Graham Caves, has kindly prepared for the interest of members the following item.

*   *   *   *   *

Perhaps the Newsletter readers would like an update on the progress of the relocation of the Australian Turf Club’s Heritage Centre.

Since the building in which much of the Heritage Collection was housed had to be demolished to make way for the light rail, it was necessary to find a new home for the collection. The Australian Turf Club is a vigorous supporter of its racing heritage and was able to make available the handsome building on Randwick racecourse, pictured with this article, as the new ATC Heritage Centre.

This building was the former forensic laboratory for Racing NSW and that function has now moved into RNSW headquarters in Druitt Street, Sydney. Being a laboratory the building needed to be thoroughly cleaned of chemical residue and re-fitted for the task of housing valuable sensitive material such as paintings, pictures, books, racing research material and documentation of the long history of the club.



Generously funded by the ATC, the keys to the refurbished building were handed over to the Heritage Officer and Archivist on June 28, 2016. The majority of the collection has been in archival storage and the function of the Heritage Society has been operating in a limited capacity.

The task of returning the collection to its new home at Randwick has begun.

The above officers and our team of some 12 volunteers will, over the next couple of months, re-shelve and store the collection so that it can once again become available to members, the public and researchers. Announcement of a re-opening date will follow when the project nears its completion.



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

Update by Matt Jones, Racing NSW Media & Communications Executive


BOBS Racehorse Nominations for 2016 will close on Thursday, September 1, for horses foaled in 2014 that turn two-year-olds on August 1, 2016.

The Racing NSW Breeder Owner Bonus Scheme (BOBS) has been operating since 2003 and since the scheme’s inception, more than $100 million in bonuses has been paid out. To be eligible for BOBS a racehorse must be sired by a NSW-based stallion for which the Stallion Nomination Fee has been paid. That stallion’s progeny may then be advertised or sold as weanlings or yearlings as “BOBS eligible.” Owners are then required to nominate the horse for a fee of $990 and a horse can then win a bonus payment of up to $20,000 for each win on NSW track (except Group and Listed races) during its two-year-old and three-year-old seasons.

For further information, nomination forms, terms and conditions, visit the Racing NSW website and following the links to the BOBS information.

Meanwhile, champion sire Snitzel continued to push ahead in the BOBS Stallion Premiership after Thronum scored a classy win at Royal Randwick. The two-year-old beat Morton’s Fork by three lengths as the highly successful partnership on Tommy Berry and Gai Waterhouse combined to help the colt pick up $20,000 in BOBS Bonus money.

Berry said the colt handled the wet conditions well. “Thronum is a nice horse,’’ Berry said. “Looking at him in the yard, he still has some furnishing to do but he has got good ability. “I don’t think he was all that comfortable in front and wanted to look around a bit but he certainly handled the wet track. He swum through it’’.

In the following race that day Godolphin went one better as it’s three-year-old Badajoz, by Commands, knocked off favourite Noble Joey by a long neck to earn $20,000 in BOBS Bonuses. It denied Noble Joey a fourth BOBS Bonus win for the season, but he’s still managed to earn $35,000 in bonuses himself. The leader is Sir Bacchus who has earned $70,000 in BOBS Bonuses from four wins.

BOBS Bonus leader board
Sir Bacchus $70,000
Ravi $50,000
River Wild $45,000
Herne's Oak $40,000
Kangarilla Joy $40,000
Scarlet Rain $40,000
Yankee Rose $40,000
