It could be said that I am of a vintage where tradition plays a major role. I cannot disagree with this statement in some instances, particularly when it comes to my great love of this industry.

I have always believed that the Sydney Autumn Carnival was the premier time for racing in our State – something to behold - and the introduction of The Championships only enhanced this view.

However after hearing the great news from Racing NSW and The Australian Turf Club of the major improvements to the Sydney Spring Carnival, we may very well have found a second Carnival to join this elite level.

The Everest will be the highlight of a revitalized Sydney Spring Carnival which will feature important enhancements to the program for three-year-old and middle distance weight-for-age races. The sprinting program leading into The Everest has also been enhanced and the staying program boosted with the ATC St Leger Stakes being revived.

The Everest race meeting, which will be held on 14 October 2017, will now become Australia’s richest raceday, featuring the world’s richest race on turf – the $10 million The Everest. The 2017 Sydney Spring Carnival, which will run from 9 September to 14 October 2017, will now offer more than $22.5 million in stakes. Simply incredible!

Members may have seen the recent media release from Racing Australia announcing that the Trainer and Owners Reforms (TOR) will commence from 1 August 2017. First announced in November 2016, these measures have been incorporated into the Australian Rules of Racing. The reforms will introduce a new Standard Training Agreement (STA) and a Co-Owners Agreement (COA). A Training Disputes Tribunal (TDT) will be established in each state and territory by the relevant Principal Racing Association, specifically to hear disputes between owners and trainers. More information regarding TOR can be found at

All the industry were greatly saddened to hear of the recent passing of former Keeper of the Australian Stud Book, Mr John Digby – our Executive Officer has written a tribute which appears later in the newsletter.

And in closing, I look forward to welcoming members to our Raceday Function at Rosehill Gardens on 29 July 2017 – the last meeting for the 2016-2017 metropolitan season – to help us celebrate the year that was.

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


For a bit of old racing history, very old by Australian standards, we look at some items in the ATC Heritage Collection about Randwick Racecourse, or Royal Randwick as it is now known.

Many would not be aware that Randwick has not always been the headquarters of racing in NSW. That honour fell to Homebush Racecourse for a time. It was roughly where the Olympic Park train station and RAS Showground are today.

Early racing in NSW was in Hyde Park, later at Captain Piper’s course at Rushcutters Bay, and at Petersham and for a while from 1833 to 1838 Randwick was tested but found wanting. It was too difficult to get to for the folk of old Sydney Town. These race meetings were not organised to the extent of today. Often they were run by the military or were match races organised between owners but there was a slowly forming pattern of conduct and of conducting the races.

When the colony, via the Governor, saw the need to clean up the sport and set out to organise it into a structured pastime along the lines of the English racing calendar, the seeds of the AJC – Australian Jockey Club (now Australian Turf Club) – were sown, and in 1842 that body took over organised racing.

In its wisdom the Committee decided that Randwick was not up to standard and did not have a Parramatta Road or Parramatta River access route that a course at Homebush would have and so from 1842 to 1860 Homebush was the home of Sydney racing.

In 1860 that all changed and the Committee of the AJC decided that with the growing development out that way and the improved roads and access, the old sandy course along the Botany Road (now Anzac Parade), would now be the best place for a racecourse, and for “a peppercorn per annum” rent, the Government agreed, and the Randwick we know today began life.

In the Heritage Collection at Randwick there are a number of artefacts from those very early days and I have chosen four for you to view in this brief history.

The first is a framed portion of the front page of a newspaper of the day advertising the Homebush Race Meeting of May 27 to 29 1846 for the racing public’s pleasure.

The second is a framed silk printed racecard (the standard small cardboard ones were forerunners of today’s racebooks) for the Homebush meeting of May 30 1851.

Item 1
Item 2

Then we have the earliest known photograph of Randwick Racecourse. It is captioned as 1863 but this writer believes it is actually 1868, someone in the past mistaking an eight for a three. Some of the buildings in the photograph were not there in 1863. Nevertheless, a very early and wonderful old photograph.

The last item is a framed racecard printed on silk for commemorative purposes to preserve for posterity the program of racing at Randwick for September 1 1860, Champion Race Day. And preserve it we do.

Item 3
Item 4




The NSW Racehorse Owners Association (NSWROA) was greatly saddened to learn of the recent passing of Mr John Digby, former Keeper of the Australian Stud Book and, on behalf of the NSWROA Committee and our members, we extend our deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

A veterinarian by trade, Mr Digby was appointed Keeper of the Book in 1988. During his tenure he made many significant changes including the establishment of stud book records on a website in 1997 (the first stud book authority to do this) and the introduction of DNA testing.

I first met John over twenty years ago whilst at Thoroughbred Breeders NSW and to say he made a lasting impression on me would be an understatement. He was a man of his word who was always interested in hearing what others in the industry had to say, particularly if it was to enhance the industry in some way.

He was a true devotee of the thoroughbred industry and will be sorely missed by all.

May he rest in peace.

Sharon Hunt
Executive Officer



Last month we commenced the first of six updates by Peta Parnell from Noel Riley & Associates on various issues faced in Bloodstock Mortality Insurance.

The second update this month is on the topic of Fundamentals of Insurance.

For your information, Noel Riley & Associates are a firm of Chartered Loss Adjusters who specialise in the area of Bloodstock and Livestock insurance claims.


Fundamentals of Insurance

For this article, I thought I’d comment on some general insurance principals that impact on Equine Insurance.

The fundamental principal of insurance is to share the loss of a few, amongst many. The premiums charged for insurance create a pool from which claims are paid. A common comment made to people in the insurance industry is “I’ve never made a claim, why should I have insurance?” The fact is that if everyone who took out an insurance policy claimed on the policy, there would be no pool available to pay the claims. Hopefully, what most people purchase when purchasing insurance, is security and peace of mind.

An insurance Policy is a legally enforceable contract between the Insured and the Insurer. It is termed a “contract of the utmost good faith.” The Insured is required to, in the utmost good faith, provide the material facts the Insurer relies upon when deciding whether or not to offer the Insurance and if so on what terms. In Equine Insurance, this is usually the Proposal and Certificate of Examination for Mortality Insurance Purposes or Declaration of Health. In response, the Insurer is required to act with the utmost good faith in its dealings with the Insured and to honour the terms and conditions of the Policy. In Australia these principals are governed by the Insurance Contracts Act 1984.

The Policy sets out the property insured, the geographic limits, the insured perils, the Exclusions and the Conditions that both the Insured and the Insurer agree to comply with.

In exchange for the premium, the Insurer undertakes to indemnify the Insured for specified losses. The principal of indemnity is to place the Insured in the same financial position after a loss, as the Insured was in prior to the loss. Many property policies give the Insurer the option of reinstating the property, replacing the property, or paying the Insured the value of the property, up to the Limit of Liability commonly called the sum insured. In horse mortality insurance, the Insurer undertakes to indemnify the Insured for the “fair market value” of the horse at the time of the loss, again up to the Limit of Liability, or occasionally for an “agreed value”.

In some circumstances, often not intentional, the Insured may be entitled to claim against two policies. In such cases Contribution applies. Contribution is the right one Insurer has, after it has indemnified the Insured, to claim in the name of the Insured against the second policy. Historically, some Insurers sought to apportion the loss prior to indemnifying the Insured and to only pay the Insured their calculated portion of the loss. The Insurance Contracts Act renders this practice void and provides for the Insured to select the policy to claim against and, after indemnifying the Insured, the Insurer of that policy can claim Contribution from the second Insurer.

Subrogation is the right an Insurer has, after it has indemnified an insured loss, to pursue recovery of the amount paid in settlement of the claim from any party that negligently caused the loss. Professionals, such as Doctors, Accountants, Veterinarians, etc., can purchase Professional Indemnity Insurance to indemnify them in the event of them being found to have negligently caused or contributed to a loss. Trainers and Agistment Farms can purchase similar protection through specialised liability policies such as Care, Custody & Control and Public & Products Liability Policies.

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 a Chartered Loss Adjuster specialising in this area.




When it comes to knowledge of our wonderful industry, few could compete with racing guru, Max Presnell. His knowledge spans in excess of six decades and he has certainly “seen it all and more” during this period.

In a book entitled “Good Losers Die Broke” published by Allen & Unwin, Max has finally put pen to paper to enthrall us with tales from the track. He talks of great characters from racing’s elite, legendary punters, crook bookies, pimps, pickpockets etc., as well as the downright disreputable. He also tells of his own unique upbringing at the Doncaster Hotel in Kensington, his journalistic career from humble beginnings as a copy boy at the Sydney Sun, to overseas employment and his return to our shores.

In other words – it’s a must read for the racing enthusiast with Max’s trademark humour evident throughout.

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


It was a BOBS bonanza at Tamworth on 10th July with six of the eight winners taking home bonus prizemoney.

Tamworth’s showcase meeting on 30th June was washed out but just eleven days later the club was celebrating one of the most successful days for BOBS horses statewide this year.

Of the eight races on the card, six were won by BOBS horses, earning a combined total of $30,000 extra prizemoney for their happy connections.

Courtney Van Der Werf piloted Miss Expensive to victory for Paul Perry in the first race of the day, picking up $20,000 plus a $5000 BOBS Bonus. Let’s Get Nauti Gal showed why she was odds on favourite in the second race before Big Ben The Clock posted a whopping five-and-a-half length win in the third. Isthmian, Happy Go Plucky and Annandale Lass also picked up BOBS bonuses for their wins. Newcastle, Wyong and Kembla Grange enjoyed similar success last month, but no other country club has had six BOBS winners in one day this year.

Zumbelina maintains a narrow lead in the BOBS Horse Premiership, which she has held all year. Test The World is snapping at her heels though, with BOBS-earning wins in less than two months. The Bjorn Baker-trained filly has earned $60,000 in BOBS bonuses, while Zumbelina has earned $70,000.


Horse Sire Prize Money Wins
Zumbelina Stratum $70,000.00 4
Test the World (NZ) Testa Rossa $60,000.00 5
Just Dreaming Snitzel $50,000.00 4
Memes Time Thief $50,000.00 4
