FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

Happy New Year to Members.

I wish you all a very successful 2017 together with an abundance of winners.

As you are aware, the Association is in regular contact with racing participants in relation to all matters regarding ownership and have several matters “on the boil” at present.

Members will have noticed the recent press coverage of the introduction by Racing NSW of the new handicapping system, under which non-feature Metropolitan races must contain a horse weighted at the minimum of 53kg in an attempt, with the range of 8kg, to increase field sizes.

Your Committee is monitoring the performance in practice of the new system, and will advise of any further developments as they occur.

The Association has received advice from Racing NSW regarding the Owners and Trainers Agreement and, in particular, the Training Disputes Tribunal.  Such advice will be discussed at the upcoming Committee Meeting and an update provided to members in the near future.

I would like to remind members that the Association is holding our first raceday function of the year at Royal Randwick on 11 February 2017 – Day 2 of The Star Chinese Festival of Racing with the Apollo Stakes the highlight on the card (see item later in the newsletter) and look forward to welcoming you to the event.

I close my column on a very sad note this month with news of the passing of Mrs Margaret Quinton and Mrs Valmae Cummings – both true ladies of the turf.  May I take this opportunity on behalf of the NSWROA Committee, myself and our members, to extend our sincere condolences to the Quinton and Cummings families.

SPECIAL FEATURE:  THE APOLLO STAKES REVIEW


Champion Galloper Emancipation won the Apollo Stakes in 1984

 

As a preamble to our annual function on Apollo Stakes Day - 11 February, our good friend and NSWROA member, Mr Graham Caves, has kindly prepared for the interest of members the following item.

*   *   *   *   *

Last year we did a broad story of the winners over the years of the ATC Apollo Stakes since its inception in 1974.

This year, to set the mood for our 11 February function on Apollo Stakes Day at Randwick, we’ll have a look at a memorable running of the Apollo Stakes.

It was in 1984 and was set to be the second of four races in that autumn that had racegoers in a tizz. The three-year-old champion of the season was Sir Dapper, trained by Les Bridge. He had won the triple crown in the spring of the Peter Pan, Gloaming and Spring Champion Stakes (as well as the Golden Slipper as a two-year-old the previous season). He had returned in the autumn for a demonstrative win over Neville Begg’s champion four-year-old mare Emancipation in the Expressway Stakes.

Their next meeting was set to be in the Apollo Stakes but on the morning of the race Sir Dapper was scratched.  Racegoers were very disappointed. The field still contained some quality horses to oppose Emancipation – try Strawberry Road for one, Veloso for another and outstanding stayers Hayai and Trissaro. But they couldn’t cope with Emancipation’s class and she was an easy winner.

In the coming weeks the rivalry between Emancipation and Sir Dapper resumed and the mare triumphed. There were all sorts of factors, such as interference and bad luck in running but at the end of the three races it was Emancipation 2, Sir Dapper 1.  She won the George Ryder and All-Aged Stakes (and he the aforementioned Expressway)

It was a great autumn to be around.

A picture of the front cover of the Apollo Stakes Day racebook 25 February 1984 at the beginning of this item depicts Sir Dapper beating Emancipation in the Expressway whilst the cover of the Doncaster Day racebook 21 April 1984 hereunder shows a head study of Emancipation, who had won the Doncaster the previous year, as a three-year-old filly.

Also shown is a newspaper finish of the All-Aged Stakes where Emancipation won the race and thus the contest with Sir Dapper.



COUNTRY RACING UPDATE

Provincial and Country Championships
This year horses trained in Canberra will be competing in the provincial heats and final.  This will enable the Canberra horses to contest several heats rather than being limited to qualifying a maximum of two horses via the South Eastern Racing Association (SERA) heat.  This will also make it easier for SERA trained horses to qualify for the final.

It is hoped that this change will add depth to the quality of the Provincial final.

Provincial Championships horses can compete in more than one of the qualifying races if they haven’t previously qualified for the Final by running first, second or third in races held on the dates below.

Date Venue Distance
Thursday, 23 February 2017 Wyong 1350m
Thursday, 2 March 2017 Hawkesbury 1400m
Wednesday, 15 March 2017 Gosford 1200m
Thursday, 23 March 2017 Kembla Grange 1400m
Wednesday, 29 March 2017 Newcastle 1400m

 

The $400,000 Provincial Championships Final will be run over 1400m at Royal Randwick on Saturday, 8 April 2017 for horses qualifying through the five race series.

Canberra trained horses however will remain eligible to compete in the Highway Handicap races and Showcase Maidens for which country trained horses are only eligible.

 

2017 ANNUAL RACING FRATERNITY MASS

 

The 2017 Annual Racing Fraternity Mass will be conducted on Sunday 12 March 2017 in the Royal Randwick Ballroom, Level 2, Queen Elizabeth II Grandstand, Royal Randwick.  The Mass will commence at 11.00 am.

The Racing Mass is attended by all denominations and by people who are representatives of all sections of the racing industry, and is offered for the well-being of the racing industry as a whole.

Everyone is welcome with light refreshments served after the Mass. Click here for flyer (jpg)

 

CARRAZZO CONSULTING UPDATE: BUSINESS OR HOBBY - FAQ

 

As the bigger catalogues flood the mail box, it can only mean one thing in racing world – the annual yearling sales circuit is nearly upon us!

No doubt there will be plenty of new investors coming on the scene in the coming months, not just for yearlings but for the many weanling and broodmare sales also in this period, and often serious money will be spent in pursuit of their breeding and/or racing passion.

There will be no shortage of catalogue research and horse inspecting in this period, as there should be, but what will also dawn upon many new players is the obvious question: where do I stand with income tax and GST now that the serious investment has started?

The starting point to answer this subjective question is whether the activity is a ‘business’ or ‘hobby’. If it is a ‘business’, income is assessable and outgoings deductible. GST registration is also allowed if the ATO considers you are running a ‘business’.

Accordingly, I’m going to start the 2017 calendar year with an article focusing on FAQ relating to this crucial ‘business’ or ‘hobby’ topic, which hopefully clarifies this question for many of you.

Business or Hobby – FAQ

Q1. How much do I have to spend to be a horse business?

Answer

It’s not just about the amount spent (the ATO does not set a minimum monetary investment), it depends on several other factors, such as:

  • What type and number of horses have been bought (e.g. yearlings, mares, pin-hook weanlings);
  • Selling mentality of buyer; and
  • Is there a prospect of profit?

 

Buying into a few random yearlings with a spend of over $100,000, for instance, does not automatically mean you’re a business.

Q2. I’m going to buy my horses in the company/trust/partnership that runs my other businesses, does that make the horses a business too?

Answer

No, a thousand times, no!

The horse activity will be assessed by the ATO in its own merits. Thus, GST cannot be claimed on horse related costs just because you can do so for outgoings for your other businesses in your business entity.

Q3. I’ve heard that all I need is to have sales/turnover in my business of at least $20,000 to be classified as a horse business. Is that right?

Answer

No.

Confusion reigns between the interaction of the ‘Non-Commercial Loss” (NCL) rules and the ‘business’ or ‘hobby’ criteria.

Under the NCL rules, an individual (alone or in partnership), who earns less than $250,000 of ‘adjusted taxable income’, cannot generally claim a loss immediately unless one of four criteria are met, one such criteria is that the activity must generate at least $20,000 of ‘assessable income’. But…you cannot even assess your loss under these rules unless you have a business first.

Accordingly, whether you have $20,000 of sales from your horse activity is academic unless you can first demonstrate that it is a business taking all the criteria into account.

Q4. I have some lovely broodmares that cost tens of thousands of dollars, want to send them to commercial stallions, but I just want to race the stock. Does this make my activities a business?

Answer

No.

Sure, in relative terms, it is easier to demonstrate a breeding business with the ATO than a ‘stand-alone’ horse racing activity.

But a breeding business does not exist unless you have a primary selling purpose – breeding to race may as well be called a ‘stand-alone’ horse racing activity. Instead of going to a yearling sale to buy the racing stock, the person is just playing the ‘long game’ and breeding their own racing stock.

Q5. I only own four quality mares in my commercial breeding business, but I guess I can’t claim it to be a business unless I have the magic number of ‘six’ mares?

Answer

Not right.

The ‘six mares rule’ as a breeding business criteria had its origins from the ATO in the mid 1980’s and was also enshrined in its 1993 horse industry tax ruling. Under that ruling it quoted that “…As a broad guideline, it is expected that the breeder would have at least six quality or commercial brood mares. “

This rule was merely an ATO opinion and held little weight in the courts as many players could prove a breeding business without the required six mares.

Thankfully the updated 2008 ATO ruling on this topic no longer contains the ‘six mares rule’. I was on the ATO consultative panel that assisted with this ruling, and I’m proud to say that I argued strongly for the death of the six mares rule!

In summary, you can have less than six mares and be considered an ATO business, but it’s not just about scale, but how you go about your business, e.g. are you selling stock, are mares mated commercially and regularly etc.

Q6. Why is a Business Plan so important in demonstrating a horse business with the ATO?

Answer

These criteria were inserted into a 1997 ruling by the ATO, the ruling titled “Am I carrying on a business of primary production”.

Subsequent to this, the courts are now relentlessly referring to these criteria in adjudicating whether a person is conducting a ‘business or hobby’. Too many taxpayers have failed to demonstrate a ‘business’ without a plan in the past few years (e.g. Devi’s case and Hartley’s case)

Anyone starting a horse business is risking a fight with the ATO unless they have a proper business plan with projections demonstrating long-term profitability. It is a strong indicator of profit intention, a crucial ATO business factor.

Q7. How should I keep my horse records if I want to demonstrate a business with the ATO?

Answer

This business factor is given major weighting with the ATO.

They should be kept in a form that makes the determination of a profit or loss easily attainable to the business person. This would typically include:

  • A dedicated horse bank account that is regularly reconciled;
  • The recording of income and expenses on the likes of MYOB, Reckon, Xero accounting software etc. As a minimum, Excel software can be used for this purpose;
  • Keeping stock records that are regularly updated; and
  • If you have computer cashbook software, ‘job-costing’ each horse gives the activity a more professional look and is a more effective management tool for the business operator, i.e. he or she knows what each horse is costing the business at a point in time.

 

Please, please .. don’t keep records in a ‘shoebox’ or fall behind in your BAS and income tax lodgements – this gives the activity a distinct ‘hobby’ look with the ATO.

Q8. Can I start the horse activity in a small way and gradually build up?

Answer

Yes, starting in small way can still be considered a business, if long term profitability and profit intention is demonstrated. In this regard, existence of a Business Plan is crucial (refer Q6 above).

The courts have held that ‘regularity and repetition’ in the activity together with consistent growth and organisation of your activities in a ‘business-like’ manner is crucial if you want to demonstrate a business in the earlier years where stock numbers have not reached optimum levels.

Q9. Can I introduce stock into the business that was acquired before its official start date?

Answer

Yes, but the appropriate stock must be transferred to the business in accordance with ATO laws re the disposal of capital (‘hobby’) assets from  ‘hobby to business’ or where the hobby asset is transferred to an entirely new horse business entity set-up (e.g. a trust or company).

If a horse is transferred from a being ‘hobby’ asset to an item of trading stock in the new business, the owner can elect to do so at either market value or cost – whatever value is elected will largely depend on tax circumstances at the time. If the ‘hobby’ horse is transferred to a new business entity, the Capital Gains Tax (CGT) rules must be kept in mind as a capital gain can often arise.

Note - in most circumstances, the official start date of the activity is the date the ABN is registered.

Q10. What are the most underestimated ATO business factors for someone wanting to demonstrate a horse business?

Answer

Per our extensive experience in dealing with the ATO and being mindful of case law in this area, I would list these as:

  • The existence of a Business Plan (refer Q6 above)

 

  • If breeding stock is raced (which is allowed if it is not overdone and there is a commercial reason for doing so), ensuring that the horse is registered in the name of the business entity (e.g. a company) and not, say, a whole lot of individuals related to the breeder (e.g. wife, children, parents etc.). Put bluntly, this is an amateurish look with the ATO, especially if an ‘integrated’ breeding and racing business is being argued to the ATO;
  • The use of experts and consultants to assist in buying bloodstock and breeding programmes; and

 

  • Lack of control of your stock, i.e. having too many horses (breeding or racing) where you only have a minority interest. Unless you have an appropriate ‘shareholders’ agreement as to dispute resolution or the general decision making process, this can indicate that you are only a passive player in the activity, which lacks business integrity.

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE


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

 

THE SILKS OF 1970s CHAMPION, LEILANI, FLEW PAST THE POST AT RANDWICK OLDER RACEGOERS MAY HAVE THOUGHT THEY WERE SEEING THINGS

Nepean ensured his connections had a happy new year when he smashed his maiden in the first race of the first meeting at Royal Randwick for 2017.

The three-year-old gelding, trained at Randwick by James Cummings, was victorious in the Happy New Year C&G Maiden Plate (1400m) earning $27,750 in prizemoney as well as a $10,000 BOBS Bonus.  With Glyn Schofield at the reins he pinged out the gates and settled second.  Nepean then made his move with 300m to go, chasing down Metamorphic before kicking away to win by two lengths.

The result held extra significance for James as the horse was bred by his late grandfather, Bart Cummings.  “I remember looking at Nepean as a yearling with my grandfather in the paddocks at Princes Farm,” he said.  “He is the son of a Group I winner from the stable, Roman Emperor and was bred on the banks on the Nepean River.”

Nepean also races in the colours of one of Bart’s most successful sprinters, Leilani, who won six Group I races in the 1970s.  James is now aiming Nepean for The Championships in the autumn.

Zumbelina is currently leading the BOBS Premiership with four claims for a total of $70,000. She is well ahead of My Giuliano and New Tipperary who have both earned $40,000 in BOBS bonuses.
