FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

Well, the Autumn Carnival is over for another year!  It was something to behold wasn’t it! The Championships have certainly taken the Carnival to another level again.

There were so many highlights – the fantastic win by She Will Reign in the Golden Slipper – a true fairytale story for the ownership ranks – the incredible performance by Chautauqua in the T J Smith Stakes – simply breathtaking – and of course the complete dominance of Winx. Is it at all possible to get better than that?

The Provincial and Country Championship finals were exceptional as well with Maryore and Free Standing the respective winners. A wrap of The Championships appears later in the newsletter.

It wouldn’t be the Autumn Carnival without our Annual Function which takes place on All Aged Stakes Day – yet another amazing day. Further details of this function appear later in the Newsletter.

It was at this function that a major announcement was made regarding a partnership with the Australian Turf Club (ATC).

I am very pleased to advise members of a partnership between NSWROA and the ATC.  The partnership will commence on a date in May. An official announcement will follow in the media in the coming days.

Essentially, all owners who race a horse at an ATC track will automatically become Associate (non-voting) Members of the Association. Existing NSWROA members will be issued with a jointly branded partnership card entitling you to free entry to any ATC track regardless of whether you have a runner or not.

The more significant impact for members will be that with a membership base of many thousands, sponsorship of the Association will be more attractive to existing and new potential sponsors. Additional funds available will be used to improve facilities and benefits for owners across the State. Further information will follow in subsequent newsletters.

 

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 …… MITCHELL STONE

The “A Quick Word with ….” column was introduced in an endeavour to introduce the readership to the Committee, Life Members and other members of the Association.

In March, the Association was delighted to welcome Mitchell Stone as a member of the NSWROA Committee. 

In this month’s issue of the column we shine the spotlight onto our newest Committee Member.

1.

Firstly, congratulations Mitchell on your appointment to the NSWROA Committee.

A. Thank you, I am very excited to be joining the NSWROA Committee. I want to help build the future success of racing in NSW and to ensure the interests of owners are heard within the industry. While having been around racing my whole life, I am new to horse ownership and am keen to listen and learn from our members about their issues and concerns and highlight the best way to work through them.
   
2. Mitchell, what was your “introduction” into the racing industry?
A. I have been going to the races for as long as I can remember. My grandfather Ned Dougherty was a jockey who rode his first winner in the Orange Cup on a horse owned by his grandfather. During my childhood he was the Chief Steward of the Central West and I was always going with him to the Orange races, collecting used race tickets and race books. This early foray into racing ignited a passion that still exists to this day.
   
3. Why did you decide to become a racehorse owner?
A. Being an avid racing fan and attending race meetings from a young age, it was a natural progression and something I always knew would happen. I love a day at the races above all else and having a horse in a race adds to the excitement.
   
4. How many horses do you currently race?
A. I own a share in one horse at the moment and am currently on the lookout for more to add to that.
   
5. Which has been the “best” horse you have owned?
A.

I am limited for choice since I have one at the moment, though I am hopeful she will be a future Group 1 winner!

   
6. Who has been the “best” horse you have seen?
A. I was living in London at the time of Black Caviar’s reign and was lucky enough to witness her win at Royal Ascot in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes. I would have to say my greatest moment was following Lonhro from track to track. His run in the Australian Cup in Flemington is a race I watch over and over and I still get goose bumps. The horse I own a share in, is a Lonhro filly which I am hoping will follow in his footsteps.
   
7. What has been your most memorable moment on a racecourse?
A. That’s a hard one and I don’t think there can be only one. I had a very memorable time when I was 18 being in the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot. Early memories of going to the races with my Grandfather are up there amongst my favourites, be it attending the Wellington Boot with him and Lester Piggott, or getting to ride Ming Dynasty when he was clerk of the course at Randwick. More recently it’s been taking my young daughter to Randwick to watch Winx in action.
   
8. What is your “vision” for the industry?
A. Racing in Australia continues to go from strength to strength with growing prize money and greater international competition. I think we need to ensure all stakeholders from owners as well as jockeys, trainers and punters on the track have a voice to grow and shape the racing industry in Australia so that future generations are enjoying a day at the races and it can continue to support the livelihoods of so many people. For this to happen we need to ensure more young people are getting involved in ownership as well as getting along to the race track. As I mentioned above, I am keen to hear from owners and learn about the key issues facing the industry and how we can best solve them.

 

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 Queen Elizabeth II Grandstand at Royal Randwick on 15 April 2017.  The event took place on the last day of the Carnival – All Aged 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 with particular thanks as always to Roger Brassington for his valuable assistance. 

Our usual competitions once again took place with the ever popular Best Tie Competition taken out by John Kingsmill whilst Phil Ward collected first prize in the raffle.

This year our Best Hat/Headpiece Competition was very special being renamed the NSWROA Jane Pitman Memorial Award to honour longstanding NSWROA Member and Autumn Carnival Function devotee Jane Pitman, who sadly passed away in February.  As regular attendees of this function will know, Jane was the essence in style and was the winner of the Best Hat/Headpiece Competition on several occasions.  The winner of the NSWROA Jane Pitman Memorial Award was Mary McKenzie.

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”, Ken Hill prevailed with 13 points from
Phil Ward in 2nd place on 12 points whilst there was a three-way tie for third place between Choo
Ewe, Peter Lowing and Laurie Saville with 11 points.


Tipping Competition “Scorer” Antony Surace (R) with the winners

Congratulations to all winners.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank:

  • Our judges for the NSWROA Jane Pitman Memorial Award & Best Tie Competition Robyn Kissane, Trish Ryan-Yates and Ann Vouris;
  • Ken Callander for his tipping advice to guests;
  • Max Presnell for his tipping advice to guests;
  • Tony Brassel for his tipping advice to guests;
  • Antony Surace for running the tipping competition;
  • Michael Inglis for assisting with the raffle draw; and
  • Terence Ho for kindly taking the photographs which have appeared in this article.
In closing my thanks to all who attended the Autumn Carnival Function this year. Your continued support of this wonderful event was greatly appreciated.

A full pictorial of the function will appear in next month’s newsletter.

 

THE CHAMPIONSHIPS – 1 AND 8 APRIL 2017


Update by Mark Brassel,
Media, Communications & Website Content Manager, Racing NSW

 

There is no doubt the 2017 The Championships was a roaring success and two standouts performances will ensure both picture-perfect days at Royal Randwick will be etched in the memory of those that were lucky enough to witness a couple of incredible feats.

There are few superlatives remaining that have not been written when describing grey super sprinter, Chautauqua.

In claiming his third successive Darley TJ Smith Stakes, Chautauqua came from a seemingly hopeless position at the rear of the field on a day that favoured front-running horses to win the $2.5 Group 1 million in the very final bound.

And again Sydney’s darling of the turf Winx cruised away from a high quality line-up to claim the $4m Group 1 Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes, taking her successive winning streak to 17 and there looks no stopping the five-year-old.

The highly-successful Country Championships is an owner’s dream, offering $150,000 in prizemoney for each NSW regional heat, with qualifiers then competing for $400,000 in the final at Royal Randwick on The Championships Day 1.

This year it was Free Standing ($41) - runner-up in his Grafton qualifier - that excelled under Blake Shinn and Coffs Harbour trainer Cathleen Rode.

“I had three horses and we took all of them to the qualifying day at Grafton. But I sold one of those and I have only got a young one,” Cathleen Rode said afterwards.

On the Country Championships, Shinn said: “It’s very special, obviously this is a new incentive that Racing NSW has brought in and it’s been welcomed into NSW racing with open arms and given the country owners and trainers a chance to enjoy city racing. It’s taken off - this is what it is all about.”

The Provincial Championships was won by Canberra galloper Maryore ($20) who steamed down the outside of the course running away to win by three lengths.

Trainer Philip Courtney explained how he received Maryore: “One of the owners I train for had her in Adelaide and he decided to bring it over so they could race in Sydney where the prizemoney is a lot better.

“I thought it was a terrific win, I was jumping up and down too much to enjoy it but as soon as she got to the front I knew it was over.”

Winning jockey Tim Clark is another fan of the Provincial and Country Championships: “It’s a great concept; these races give country and provincial owners and trainers a really great opportunity.”

 

THE ATC HERITAGE COLLECTION


NSWROA member Graham Caves, who is also a volunteer member at the ATC Heritage Centre at Randwick, has provided the following review of an item in the ATC Heritage Collection for our newsletter this month.

*******************************

Because NSWROA members have a connection with All-Aged Stakes Day at Randwick through the annual function, I thought an item from the ATC Heritage Collection that had an All-Aged Stakes relevance would be an appropriate choice to feature as this month’s selection from the collection.

Racing historians know the greatness of Wakeful, the champion mare of the turn of last century. She was best known as a stayer, winning the Sydney Cup of 3200m and the Champion Stakes of 4800m and 10 weight-for-age races at 2000m and beyond, as well as staging one of the greatest Melbourne Cup defeats in its history. In 1903 as a 7YO mare she was beaten three-quarters of a length, carrying 63.5 kgs, by Lord Cardigan, a 3YO carrying 41.5 kgs. Five months later Lord Cardigan won the Sydney Cup by an easy three lengths carrying 54 kgs.

Another extraordinary feat that Wakeful achieved was at the AJC carnival in the autumn of 1902 when she won, in the space of the week, the Autumn Stakes (2400m), Sydney Cup (3200m), the All-Aged Stakes (then 1600m) and the AJC Plate (4800m). All would have been Group 1 races if ratings existed in those days.

Surprised that such a mare could win at 1600m? Then take note that she also won an Oakleigh Plate (1100m), a Newmarket (1200m) and a Doncaster (1600m).

What a mare!

At the AJC Heritage Centre we have a number of items featuring Wakeful. Here for your perusal is one of her horseshoes displayed on a polished wooden shield.

CARRAZZO CONSULTING UPDATE: CARRAZZO “GREAT SOUTHERN TAX SEMINAR” SET FOR MELBOURNE

 

They say that “charity begins at home”, but as far as Carrazzo Consulting running its renowned horse tax seminars in its home town of Melbourne, this regrettably has been far from the truth in the past few years.

2009 is the last year Carrazzo Consulting ran a horse tax seminar in Melbourne and there has been no shortage of Victorians that have reminded us, especially in the past 12 months! Aside from the NT, we have run a horse tax talk in every state of Australia since 2009, in fact multiple times in breeding and racing hubs such NSW, QLD & WA.

Special focus on Business start-ups
Not only will the Melbourne seminar drought end in June 2017, but it will do so in special fashion as we intend to change the format of this Melbourne talk to mostly accommodate horse players wanting to start-up a horse business. In recent years, we have never had such a demand in assisting local and international players with new business start-ups within Australia.

Planning is in the early stages, but what we can reveal is that the talk will be held at The William Inglis Oaklands Junction sales complex on Friday 16 June, at a time coinciding with the annual Inglis “Great Southern Sale”, which is due to start a few days later on Sunday 18 June.

The talk will cover off on the valuable topics for those starting a horse business, including:

  • Business or Hobby
  • Tax Structuring
  • Tax losses rules
  • Business Plans & Budgeting
  • Tax implications for hobbyists converting to a business
  • Land Tax Exemptions
  • BAS Returns & GST
  • Stock write-downs
  • Common Tax Deductions

Paul Carrazzo and new Carrazzo Consulting salaried partner, Bill Mavropoulos, will jointly present this talk.

For further details go to www.horsetaxseminar.com.au , email us on team@carrazzo.com.au  or call us on 1300 Right Track.

INDUSTRY UPDATES

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

IAHP New Sponsor for Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup
Hawkesbury Race Club CEO, Greg Rudolph and Mr Chris Lawlor, CEO of International Animal Health Products, have announced a new three year sponsorship in the form of the Group 3 Livamol Hawkesbury Gold Cup, to be run at the XXXX Gold Stand Alone Saturday meeting on Saturday week, 29th April 2017.  Livamol is Australasia’s leading coat conditioner for horses and other livestock for more than 50 years. Livamol, Livamol Feed Optimiser Pellets and the “perfect partners” grooming range, all form the extensive Livamol range which is used throughout the racing, breeding, sale preparation, agistment, pre-training and pleasure horse markets throughout Australia and New Zealand. This extends the Livamol branding with the existing sponsorship of the Group 1 Livamol Classic, NZ’s premier race, run at each year at Hastings in October.  “We are thrilled to have an expanding international business, based locally and headed by a prominent owner and breeder in his own right, on board as a new sponsor for the next three years,” said Rudolph.  “Importantly, International Animal Health Products and in particular the Livamol range, are highly regarded not only in the racing industry, but amongst the wider equestrian community for which the region is renowned,” he added. International Animal Health Products is a family owned business that manufactures and markets a range of livestock solutions and Veterinarian only products available throughout Australia, New Zealand and overseas export markets.

Bowman claims hat-trick in Nathan Berry Medal
Hugh Bowman has claimed his third successive Nathan Berry Medal on Day 2 of The Championships at Royal Randwick finishing on 10 points three points clear of early leader Blake Shinn. The Nathan Berry Medal, named in memory of the former top jockey who passed away in April 2014, is awarded to the most successful jockey over the 12 races of The Championships.

New Chair and Deputy Chair for Racing Australia
Ms Frances Nelson QC has been elected Chair of Racing Australia following the retirement of Mr John Messara AM. Ms Nelson QC is currently Chair of Thoroughbred Racing South Australia and has had a long-standing involvement within the industry. Ms Nelson QC has been a Director of Racing Australia for 6.5 years and has served as Deputy Chair since 2015. Ms Nelson QC is the first woman, as well as the first South Australian, to be elected as Chair of Racing Australia or the previous Australian Racing Board. The Chairman of Racing NSW, Russell Balding AO, was elected Deputy Chair of Racing Australia at the same time.

 

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE


Update by Julieanne Horsman, Media & Communications Executive, Racing NSW

 

CALANDA WAS ONE OF SIX HORSES TO EARN CONNECTIONS AN ‘EASTER EGG’ IN THE FORM OF A BOBS BONUS WHEN SUCCESSFUL AT CANTERBURY PARK ON EASTER MONDAY

Peter and Paul Snowden’s decision to hold Calanda back began to pay off just two days after the end of the Sydney Autumn Carnival.  The Snowdens gave up a shot at some of the big money on offer throughout March and early April, instead opting to aim the promising three-year-old gelding at the Scone Guineas – a $400,000 race restricted to Inglis graduates which also offers a $20,000 BOBS Bonus for the winner.  “That’s always been the target for him and everything he does will be preparing him for that race,” co-trainer Paul Snowden said.

Calanda’s preparation got off to an ideal start at Canterbury Park on Easter Monday with an impressive win in the Bowermans Office Furniture Handicap (1100m).  With Hugh Bowman aboard, he was forced to travel three-wide with no cover but dug in for the last 200m to win by a head.  He claimed $27,750 prizemoney as well as a $10,000 BOBS Bonus for his happy connections.  It was Calanda’s second BOBS Bonus claim in just five starts.  “There was a lot of merit in his win,” Paul Snowden said.  “He’s lightly-raced and has a lot of upside and I think he will get to a good level.”

Calanda’s win made it a double for Hugh Bowman who had earlier saluted on Chris Waller-trained gelding, Wayanka.

It was an outstanding day for BOBS horses with six winners taking a home a bonus, equalling Hawkesbury’s record for the most successful day in 2017.

Zumbelina has retained a clear lead in the BOBS Horse Premiership with four claims for a total of $70,000.  Snitzel leads the BOBS Stallion Premiership with 45 winners to his name.
