Following the recent Annual General Meeting of the Association, I was asked to mention to our members via the newsletter, some of the issues that I raised on the night.

It was with great pride that I addressed members at the 51st Annual General Meeting of the Association on 16 May 2016.  During the past 12 months the Association provided input/submissions/lobbied on many issues on behalf of our members and indeed all owners.  However from an owners’ perspective there has been no bigger issue that has affected us in recent times than the proposed Payment Mandate.

It was with great pleasure that I confirmed to members that Racing Australia had deferred the proposed scheme pending the issuing of a Standard Training Agreement which will include an efficient dispute resolution mechanism.  As members may recall this was the Association’s submission from the beginning as the solution to the perceived problem.

On the Committee front, we have had three additions to the NSWROA Committee – Kerry Carpenter, Glenn Fraser and Phil Morley.

Since the last AGM the Association has also entered the Social Media world now having Twitter and Facebook accounts.

The three major events on our social calendar during the past 12 months were the 2015 Racing’s Night of Champions, our 50th Anniversary Raceday Function and the 2016 Autumn Carnival Function – all of which were great successes.

2015 Racing’s Night of Champions returned to Royal Randwick where the industry was once again united as we “Celebrated the Best”.  The Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation was again our charity of choice for the event. 

Our 50th Anniversary Raceday Function in December was fittingly held at Royal Randwick and it was a true celebration.   The NSWROA Committee (both past and present), members and friends gathered to celebrate this wonderful milestone for our Association.

The 2016 Autumn Carnival function – on the last day of the Carnival – All Aged Stakes Day - was a great day indeed with numbers once again increasing for this event.

And in closing my column this month I couldn’t do so without mentioning the impending retirement on 3 June 2016 of the Racing NSW Chairman of Stewards, Mr Ray Murrihy.  After some 46 years as a steward and the past 21 years as Chairman of Stewards, the time has come for Ray to “hand over the reins” to the Deputy Chairman of Stewards-Operations, Mr Marc Van Gestel.  May I take this opportunity of behalf of the NSWROA Committee and our members to wish Ray all the very best for the future and congratulate him on his outstanding contribution to our industry.  I would also like to congratulate Marc on his appointment and wish him every success in his new role.

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 Les Young, is “in the spotlight”.


1. Les, what was your “introduction” into the racing industry?
A. It started when I was about 10 or 12, listening to race broadcasts when confined to bed undergoing treatment for asthma.  There was no family interest but I soon became fascinated with the breeding of racehorses rather than betting on them.
2. Why did you decide to become a racehorse owner?
A. I became an owner to race the first horse I bred, a filly named Concheta who placed but failed to win before going to stud to produce a few winners.
3. How many horses do you currently race?
A. Currently I have a share in only one horse, the mare Underground Blues with Kris Lees but there are also a few as yet unraced two-year-olds which I have leased out.
4. Which has been the “best” horse you have owned?
A. Probably a dead heat between homebred Group 2 winners Integra (sire of Intergaze) and Sea Swell but I also bred and sold Zephyrz, winner of a Magic Millions Classic before an early death.
5. Who has been the “best” horse you have seen?
A. In Australia, would have to say Kingston Town.
6. What has been your most memorable moment on a racecourse?
A. There have been many memorable days watching horses I have been associated with like Emancipation but perhaps, personally, my biggest thrill was Sea Swell’s win in the Sandown Guineas after a string of placings in feature races.
7. What is your “vision” for the industry?
A. I would like to see more emphasis placed on the horse, the beauty, colour and theatre of racing rather than the gambling and social sides to attract new people to the track.
8. If you were down to your last $20.00 – what would you spend it on?
A. A big bunch of bright flowers to cheer me up for lacking funds!



NSWROA Committee Member Tom O’Callaghan (l)
with Exercise Physiologist for award research, Ms Brianna Clifford


Members will be interested to know that funds raised from the 2015 Racing’s Night of Champions function are being directed to some wonderful medical projects.

At a function on 12 May 2016 conducted at the Prince of Wales Hospital and attended by Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation Board members, a major portion of the funds raised from last year’s event were granted to a team led by Professor David Goldstein for research into the role of exercise in the management of inflammation in cancer patients.

NSWROA Committee Member Tom O’Callaghan once again represented the Association at the function and presented the award certificate to the very grateful and worthy recipient.




As I noted in a previous update a few years ago, the Government announced that from 1 July 2011 new standards apply to “collectables” or “personal use assets” that are acquired by a Self-Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF).

Collectables includes items such as:

  • Artwork;
  • Jewellery;
  • Antiques;
  • coins or medallions;
  • wine;
  • cars;
  • memorabilia;
  • postage stamps or first day covers;
  • rare folios, manuscripts or books;
  • cars;
  • recreational boats;
  • memberships of sporting or social clubs, or
  • assets of a particular kind, if assets of that kind are ordinarily used or kept mainly for “personal use or enjoyment”.

Unfortunately, the latter category includes racehorses in training owned by a SMSF, given that the ATO has long classified them as “personal use assets”, but more about that later.

These new standards apply to both assets acquired prior to 1 July 2011 and also new assets acquired after that date. In other words, regardless of when the racehorse was acquired it should not be held within your SMSF where it is a personal use asset and does not meet the new standards (refer below).

What are the new standards for holding these assets?

The tightened rules state that:

  • The item must not be leased to, or part of a lease arrangement with a related party (a related party includes a member of the fund); 
  • If the item is transferred to a related party, it must be independently valued;
  • The item must not be stored in the private residence of a related party; 
  • The item must not be used by a related party; 
  • The decision on the storage of the item must be recorded and kept for at least 10 years after the decision has been made; and 
  • The item must be insured in the fund’s name.

It’s obvious from the above, that the very fact that an item such as a Racehorse in training must not be “used” or “leased” to a related party now makes them ineligible to be a SMSF asset and should be immediately removed to either a related party or outsider for an arm’s length value.
However, Racehorses owned in the fund on or before 30 June 2011, were subject to a special “transitional” concession as they had to be removed from the fund by 1 July 2016 – which is now only a few months away.

Why are racehorses “personal use assets”?

From the time the Capital Gains Tax (CGT) rules came into being in September 1985, the contentious issue within the racing industry was whether a hobby racehorse was a normal capital asset or a “personal use asset”, as different rules apply to the latter in terms of exemptions etc.

Upon the urging of the industry, the ATO considered the issue and released a special tax ruling in 1991, where it stated:

“A horse that is acquired by a taxpayer who races horses as a hobby, i.e. who is not carrying on a business of racing horses, is a personal use asset for the purposes of Part 111A (i.e. the CGT rules).”

Is it all doom and gloom for racehorses in training held in a SMSF?

Not necessarily.

If the SMSF trustee can argue to the ATO that the Racehorse is not a “personal use asset”, i.e. not kept for personal use or enjoyment, the fund may still be able to keep the horse within the SMSF. For instance, the racehorse may have become an elite horse and will kept in the fund for future breeding purposes where, if a mare, significant monies can be expected via foals bred or, if a stallion, via service fees derived or large sale proceeds on full or partial sell down to a stud.

If the above argument are relied upon, given that this is such a contentious issue, I would strongly recommended that the SMSF trustee seek a private ruling from the ATO from an adviser with specialist knowledge in this area.

Also note that if the racehorse is disposed of by the SMSF and its interest cost the SMSF $10,000 or less (including GST), that no CGT will be paid on the sale of the horse, regardless of what it’s market value is at that time. This is a special CGT concession that relates to “personal use assets”.

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 2016.

This year we sponsored the NSW Racehorse Owners Association Maiden Handicap over 1400 metres on Town Plate Day – May 5.  Town Plate Day is of course part of the Murrumbidgee Turf Club’s prestigious Wagga Wagga Gold Cup Carnival.

The NSW Racehorse Owners Association Maiden Handicap was taken out by I Told Georgie (I Am Invincible-Toldyas) from Zoltar who is co-owned by NSWROA Member Mr J Abrahams with Canny Henry in third position.

Whilst our membership was unsuccessful on Town Plate Day, members did salute on Wagga Wagga Gold Cup day with Mr J Middleton successful with Miss Falsified.

Close to 9,500 people were in attendance on Wagga Wagga Gold Cup Day to see Messene claim the $150,000 feature race of the Carnival, the Listed Wagga Wagga Gold Cup.

Messene (Lonhro-Belle Giselle) trained by Hawkes Racing scored by two lengths from Iggi Pop (NZ) owned by NSWROA member Mr K Maloney with Adirondack in third place.  Messene was ridden by long-time carnival supporter Blake Shinn, who celebrated his first Wagga Cup win.

This year the Murrumbidgee Turf Club (MTC) held one of its most successful Gold Cup carnivals on record, with more than 12,500 people flocking through the gates over the 2 days.

MTC Chief Executive Officer, Scott Sanbrook said:

“The carnival had everything ... terrific fields with the country’s best stables and jockeys represented, which was reflected by the high calibre of racing.”

“And we were so lucky with the weather as both days were unusually warm for May, bringing out the best crowds we have seen for many years.”

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




Members please note your diaries for the flagship event of the Association – Racing’s Night of Champions - which will be held on Thursday 18 August 2016 at Royal Randwick.

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.

POWHF is an established charitable organisation supporting and promoting research, education, health promotion and patient care for and at the Prince of Wales Hospital Randwick.

See under for advance details of the function.




So the yearly ‘night of nights’ for the tax community is now behind us and it’s time to pass on the Budget measures that most impact the racing and breeding industry….some we suspect you may never have thought of!


1.Tax Avoidance Task Force – High Wealth Individuals again the target

The ATO announced a new 1,000 strong task force to focus on high wealth individuals and multinationals. When considering this in light of the recent data matching project the ATO announced, i.e. “Project Do It”, a project designed at establishing people who own expensive “lifestyle assets” such as racehorses, people in the horse breeding and racing industry should be informed of the new focus.

To refresh re “Project Do It”, the ATO recently obtained over 100,000 records from insurance providers in relation to the owners of lifestyle assets. These assets included racehorses, boats and other high value assets. The appropriate and timely disclosure of assets and associated income is important to avoid compliance audits in this area.


2.Medium sized business get access to some Small Business concessions

In an unexpected move, the government announced that the threshold for access to some existing income tax concessions will be extended to businesses with aggregate turnover up to $10 million, increased for businesses with aggregated turnover up to $2 million previously. This change however does not extend to the Small Business CGT concessions.

The good news for players in the Horse Breeding and Racing Industry is that this gives larger businesses access to the following concessions

  • the prepayment rules to deduct things like service fees paid in advance;
  • the $20,000 depreciation write off for any depreciating assets worth up to $20,000 and the simplified pooling of assets;
  • Cash basis of accounting for GST; and
  • Simplified trading stock rules.

There are other income tax concessions that small businesses have access to that will also presumably be extended to medium sized businesses with aggregated turnover under the new threshold.


3.Superannuation changes to impact Non-Commercial Loss Rules

Another change that at first instance seems harmless but may have a wider impact on the industry is the balance cap of $1.6 million on accumulated savings that can be transferred to tax-free amounts in the retirement phase of a Self-Managed Superannuation Fund (‘SMSF’). This change is slated to come into effect from 1 July 2017.

In plain English, this rule means pensions paid in excess of this $1.6 million cap will now be taxable and increase the likelihood for high wealth individuals (with a SMSF paying them a pension), to earn at least $250,000 p.a. going forward. Where this is the case, access to immediately claiming losses from a taxation horse breeding or racing activity will be cut off, unless the person seeks a Private Ruling from the ATO that demonstrates long-term viability for the business.  This is a time consuming, problematic and costly process. Commercial horse breeders transitioning to retirement should seek advice in relation to how this change will affect them.

Should clients or members of the general public wish to discuss any of these developments please contact our office. 


4.Corporate Rate Reduction

Many commercial horse industry players trade via companies.

The company tax rate will be progressively reduced to 25% over the next 10 years. In the 2016-17 tax year companies with annual aggregated turnover less than $10 million will be reduced to 27.5%. This 27.5% rate will apply to companies with larger aggregated turnover in accordance with the below schedule:

Income Year

Annual aggregated
turnover threshold


$25 Million


$50 Million


$100 Million


$250 Million


$500 Million


$1 Billion



The rate will then continue to reduce from 2023-24 as follows:

Income Year

Company Tax Rate







Franking credits will be paid at a rate in accordance with the tax paid by the company originally.

New company loss rules a win for the racing industry too

This rate reduction coupled with the recently announced proposed relaxing of company tax loss rules makes companies an increasingly more attractive tax vehicle to use for both investments and businesses.

The new proposed tax loss rules for companies will allow tax losses for ‘predominantly similar businesses’ to be deducted. Previously, where 50% or more of a company’s shares changed hands only a virtually ‘identical business’ could access the company’s losses, which made it very difficult for horse industry players with companies to legitimately transfer the company or use the losses in the company for other activities.

Any reader intending to apply the information in this article to practical circumstances should independently verify their interpretation and the information’s applicability to their particular circumstances with an accountant specialising in this area.

As advised in the April Newsletter, hereunder are some happy snaps from last month’s Autumn Carnival function.




Update by Matt Jones, Racing NSW Media & Communications Executive


Sir Bacchus has shot well clear on the BOBS Bonus leader board following another top win this campaign at Rosehill Gardens.

The three-year-old Sebring grey came from well back in the field to defeat Lucky Fish by three quarters of a length to bring up his fourth win in seven starts.  He was ridden by the in-form apprentice Rory Hutchings, who took him from ninth on the home turn and let him finish off his race strongly for trainer Chris Waller.

The young horse is proving to be a huge financial success for his owners who include NSWROA Members Laurel Oak Bloodstock, Mr L & Mrs J Mihalyka, Mr F & Mrs C Cook, Mr P & Mrs R Richards, Mr S Grant, Mr N Macdonald, Ms N Mackay, Mrs S Grant, Mr L A D Mihalyka and Mr L Carpenter.

Following his two wins this preparation Sir Bacchus returned to his huge team of happy owners brought together by well-known syndicator Louis Mihalyka of Rebel Dame fame.

“There are about 60 people in Sir Bacchus,’’ Mihalyka said. “There are a couple of syndicates, one of them only goes into grey coloured horses; they call themselves the Dirty Greys.’’

In winning, Sir Bacchus earned $20,000 in BOBS Bonus money – the fourth time he earned BOBS Bonuses.  It brought his total winnings up to $70,000, with River Wild in second place on the ladder with $45,000.

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