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 pleasure that I addressed members at the 53rd Annual General Meeting of the Association on 14 May 2018. The NSWROA Committee met regularly throughout the year and continued our commitment to owners’ interests and objectives, as well as those of the racing industry in general. Since my last report, the NSWROA Committee has welcomed two new directors – Blake Matthews and Shirley McGrath whilst Judith Foley and Michael Inglis have left our ranks.

The Association continued to represent owners on various industry groups and bodies during the year primarily the Racing Industry Consultation Group (RICG) and the Australian Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners Council (ATROC). The Association also continues to conduct regular meetings with Racing NSW and other industry bodies regarding issues involving owners. One such issue, which is still ongoing at present, is Local Rule 114 under the Rules of Racing in respect of Equine Welfare. During the past 12 months the Association has provided input/submissions/lobbied on many issues on behalf of our members and indeed all owners.

I am very pleased indeed to confirm to members that our partnership with Tabcorp will continue in 2018/2019. This partnership has now been in existence for some 10 years and we are delighted that it will continue again this year. Our partnership with the Australian Turf Club (ATC) is also flourishing and indeed this has further strengthened our wonderful relationship with the ATC.

The two major events on our social calendar since the last AGM were the 2017 Racing’s Night of Champions and the 2018 Autumn Carnival Function. 2017 Racing’s Night of Champions was once again a very successful night held at Royal Randwick with the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation continuing as our charity of choice for the event. The 2018 Autumn Carnival function – on the last day of the Carnival – All Aged Stakes Day - was another great day with feedback both at the function and subsequently, indicating that it was our best event ever. I would like to take this opportunity to thank most sincerely those members who continued their support of this terrific event.

I would also like to formally and sincerely thank the Vice President and Secretary, Mr Tom O’Callaghan for standing in during my six months leave of absence. I cannot thank him enough for his support. My thanks also to the Executive Officer, Ms Sharon Hunt for her assistance both during this time and in her years of service with us - the work she puts in is very much appreciated. I also commend the efforts of the Directors to members. As President, I could not possibly have functioned without their support as well during the year.

And in closing as we go to press the Group 1 Belmont Stakes has just been run and won in New York with the incredible Justify (USA) taking out the race and in so doing became the 13th winner of the coveted Triple Crown. Justify joins the legendary Seattle Slew (USA) as the only horses to succeed in this task undefeated. Our congratulations to part owners and NSWROA members China Horse Club Racing on this fantastic achievement.

Members might recall that two years ago a great initiative of the Association was introduced (with the co-operation of the Australian Turf Club) - the NSW Racehorse Owners Association Trophy race. This race serves as a “thank you” to all involved with the industry for the year that was and will be conducted each year as the last race of the metropolitan season.

To reinforce our support for this great initiative, the Association holds a raceday function to coincide with the running of this race.

Accordingly, you are cordially invited to join fellow NSWROA members and friends of the Association at our raceday function, at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, on Saturday, 28 July 2018.

The function will take place in the Marscay Room on Level 3 of the J R Fleming Stand.

The package for the day which is priced at $135.00 per person (GST inclusive) includes general admission to the track, a sumptuous buffet luncheon and beverage package, afternoon tea and race book.

If you are interested in attending, click here for a booking form.



One of the true legends of Australian thoroughbred racing, Archer, will finally be given his due recognition as the winner of our very first Melbourne Cup in 1861 (as well as the winner of the second running of the race) when a life sized memorial is unveiled in Nowra in November 2019.

The memorial statue, designed by Gillie and Marc, will depict Archer with his trainer Ettiene de Mestre and his jockey John Cutts Dillon and is the initiative of Shoalhaven City Turf Club with the support of the Shoalhaven City Council.

The statue is to recognise and honour the contribution of the trios’ achievements in the very first two Melbourne Cups and to also foster regional pride, celebrate regional success as well as acknowledging the connection with a national institution.

To assist with cost of this project donations are being sought from the public. All donations $2 and over are tax deductable.

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


At the ATC Heritage Centre the collection holds many and varied artefacts. I’ve tried to show as broad and different items as I can to give you an indication of the scope of the collection.

This month we have the VRC Victoria Derby Sashes.

Sashes were the order of the day in years gone by and were usually draped around the neck of the sweaty Derby and St Leger winners of their day – blue for the Derby winner and red for the St. Leger. The job was usually given to the wife of the dignitary present on the big day – with some duty of care from the strapper or trainer if the horse was unruly.

Today that tradition has gone. Sponsored satin rugs seem to be the go now.

Shown here are pictures of three of the sashes held in the ATC Heritage Collection. Time has faded the colour but these were all for VRC Victoria Derby winners – 1886 Trident – 1889 Dreadnought and 1910 Beverage.

Trident was owned by the most influential man in racing at the time, the Honourable James White. Trident was the star of his 2YO and 3YO season and trained on to become a near champion of the Australian Turf. He won the AJC Sires’ Produce Stakes, both Derbies, both St Legers, an Australian Cup, a Champion Stakes and seven Weight-for-age races that would have been Group 1 in their day.

Dreadnought was also owned by James White and though not as good as Trident he was an outstanding racehorse, winning both the AJC and VRC St. Legers, an Australian Cup and two major weight-for-age races as well as his Victoria Derby.

Beverage, owned by Mr C Smith was the star 2YO of his year, winning the December Stakes, AJC and VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes and Ascot Vale Stakes. He won his Victoria Derby and the weight-for-age Linlithgow Stakes over a mile in Cup Week of 1910, showing his versatility.



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









A reminder to Members to note your diaries for the flagship event of the Association Racing’s Night of Champions - which will be held on Thursday 16 August 2018 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.



The Association’s great supporter and Racing’s Night of Champions Sponsor, International Animal Health Products (IAHP), has recently introduced the world’s first biological control that substantially reduces roundworm larvae – BioWorma.

IAHP Chief Executive Officer and founder, Chris Lawlor advises:

“BioWorma has been dubbed a game-changer in worm control. It is a biological worm control product, which has the potential to save graziers and horse owners time and money - both through limiting stock losses and also reducing the need for chemical drenches for cattle, sheep, goats and horses.”

For further information regarding BioWorma click here.



Members will recall that last year over a six month period, Peta Parnell from Noel Riley & Associates kindly provided the Association with updates on some of the issues faced regarding Bloodstock Mortality Insurance.

Over the past 19 years, Noel Riley and his daughter Peta Parnell, have worked with Insurers, owners, trainers and veterinarians throughout Australia and overseas. They have shared their knowledge and experience, writing articles for and presenting papers to peak industry bodies.

As a quick reference guide for members, a compilation of the updates has been produced.

Update by Julieanne Horsman,
Media & Communications Executive, Racing NSW
Picture: Bradley Photographers



Ronstar only made his debut on 19th May but with two wins from two starts he’s a contender for the 2017/18 BOBS Horse Premiership.

The Gary Portelli-trained gelding has earned two BOBS bonus payments worth a total of $42,500 in addition to $106,750 prizemoney to place him in eighth position.

“I’ve always been a big fan of BOBS,” Portelli said. “I take it that seriously if I am looking through a catalogue I will often put a line through a horse that isn’t BOBS eligible. “We’re lucky Zoustar’s progeny are eligible this year. They weren’t last year because he stood in Victoria for a season.”

Winona Costin is all smiles after piloting Ronstar
to his second victory in as many starts at Rosehill Gardens.

Talented Godolphin filly Epidemic currently leads the BOBS Horse Premiership having surpassed Emperor’s Way who had held the top spot since March. She has $70,000 in BOBS earnings to her name but is unlikely to race in NSW again this season, leaving it up to her rivals to try and catch her.

Most of the horses ranked above Ronstar are either racing interstate or spelling so two wins before 1st August could see him come over the top and pinch the BOBS Horse Premiership.

“I’ve come close a few times but never won a BOBS Horse Premiership,” Portelli said. “I’d like to see Ronstar win but I think he will have his best chance next year.”

If Ronstar wins again he will most likely be spelled and aimed at the Group 1 Golden Rose in September. If not, he will sit out the Spring and return for an Autumn campaign.
