The Everest Spring Carnival in Sydney is over for another year having been a great success again. It is wonderful to see how Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club have revitalized our racing in the Spring which has resulted in record crowd numbers at the races. Congratulations – a job well done!

Redzel - how good was that? To win a race like The TAB Everest once is incredible but to win the first two in succession is something most could only dream about. Our congratulations to all connections. Further details regarding The TAB Everest appear later in the newsletter.

The inaugural running of The Kosciuszko was another triumph for Racing NSW with our country colleagues in receipt of the spoils. Our congratulations to the connections of Belflyer the victor on the day.

The racing focus has currently moved to Melbourne with their Spring Carnival now in full force.

There could have been no better way to “officially” welcome in the Carnival than the outstanding feat of Winx saluting in her fourth consecutive W S Cox Plate. Absolutely fantastic. As stated what seems a million times before, there are just not enough superlatives we can use to describe our champion galloper and the darling of Sydney racing. As always our congratulations to her owners and NSWROA members Mr Peter and Mrs Patricia Tighe and Mrs Debbie Kepitis and Mr Richard Treweeke. An item follows later in the newsletter regarding her triumph.

VRC Derby Day was another great day of racing with NSW trained horses successful in four races – Best of Days (GB) (Group 1 Kennedy Mile (Cantala Stakes)), Shillelagh (NZ) (Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes), Osborne Bulls (Group 2 TAB Stakes (Linlithgow Stakes)) and Ranier (Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes). The Victoria Derby went to the Victorian trained and bred Extra Brut who was too strong for Stars of Carrum with Chapada in third position.

At the time of writing we have just witnessed the running of “the race that stops a nation” where our local brigade were up against some very impressive overseas visitors indeed.

The 2018 Melbourne Cup was won by Cross Counter (GB) who came with a barnstorming finish to defeat Marmelo (GB) in second place with A Prince of Arran (GB) third.

Members may have seen on various websites and social media recently, the job of Executive Officer at the Association being advertised. This is because I have resigned from my role after ten and half years with the Association and will finish up in December.

As most will appreciate before undertaking this course of action, much thought was given to the matter with the decision, whilst hard to make, the best outcome for myself.

It has been an honour to serve Members in this role.

I will always remember with fondness the memories I have had at the Association particularly the contact with you our members. It was wonderful to meet members at our various functions, racedays etc. and speaking with members by phone (sometimes only once a year at renewal time) to catch up on the exploits of your current racing team.

I have also made numerous friends both from within the industry and our membership which I am sure will continue after I depart.

I would like to thank members of the NSWROA Committee, both past and present, who have assisted me in my role – such assistance was greatly appreciated.

May I take this opportunity to wish everyone success with your wonderful steeds both for the remainder of this season and indeed in seasons to come.

Whilst a little early I know, I also extend to you the compliments of the season.

All the best



Another race – another record – there is no stopping our wonderful Champion Galloper, NSW TAB Champion Horse of the Year and Australian Horse of the Year, Winx.

On Saturday 27 October 2018, Winx set yet another milestone, when she saluted in the Group One MVRC W S Cox Plate – her fourth win in succession in this event. A feat that has never been accomplished before.

We offer our hearty congratulations to her owners Peter & Patricia Tighe and Debbie Kepitis (all NSWROA members) and Richard Treweeke, her trainer Chris Waller and jockey Hugh Bowman.

Her record now stands at 33 wins and 3 second placings from 39 career starts and some $22,934,925 in prizemoney with her winning streak now extended to 29 wins. Incredible!!

At the time of writing the new Longine’s World’s Best Racehorse Rankings are soon to be released.

The Longine’s World’s Best Racehorse Rankings is the horse racing’s equivalent to World Rankings by other major sporting organisations. The rankings are based on the ratings earned by horses running worldwide from North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, South Africa and Asia through to Australia and New Zealand.

Winx is currently rated as the Best Racehorse in the World on a rating of 130. Surely after such a monumental victory she will extend her rating again.

Go Winx!!!!




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.


It’s November and the Melbourne Cup has just been run and won. Will the winner go down in Cup history as a great or will it become a hard to remember winner in years to come? Time will tell!

From the past though, there have been some wonderful horses victorious in the Melbourne Cup and in the ATC Heritage Collection there are many images of past Cup winners. I have chosen four to feature here:

Poseidon: This seldom seen photograph of Poseidon is a gem. Poseidon in 1906/07 was a champion and won just about everything he contested as a three-year-old. He won 11 of his 14 starts with the other three being placed second. The races he won were a welter handicap and an open handicap then the AJC Derby, Eclipse Stakes, Caulfield Cup, Victoria Derby, Melbourne Cup, St Helier Stakes, VRC St Leger, VRC Loch Plate and AJC St Leger.

Artilleryman: Set to storm the Australian turf after an outstanding three-year-old season this colt raced poorly at the AJC autumn meeting of 1920 and was found to be seriously ill with an infection. He died as a January four-year-old without racing again. At three years he had won the Melbourne Cup brilliantly in 1919 by six lengths and he had also won the Memsie Stakes, AJC Derby (DH), Caulfield Guineas, C B Fisher plate, St George Stakes, VRC St Leger, VRC Governor’s Plate, VRC King’s Plate and the Rawson Stakes. The ATC Heritage Collection is fortunate to have the original Martin Stainforth painting of Artilleryman, which is argued by some as the finest painting of a racehorse ever seen.

Windbag: This unframed photograph from the ATC Heritage Collection shows the fine racehorse Windbag, Jim Munro up, in perfect clarity. That is because it is taken from a glass plate negative, dated 1925. His coat is glowing and he looks in splendid health. Windbag was the Cup winner of 1925 and apart from that he was an outstanding racehorse over four seasons and also a successful sire. Windbag’s 18 wins included the Cup and an AJC St Leger and 10 weight-for-age races that would, had Group ratings existed in those days, been rated Group 1.

Sirius: Perhaps not the best known Cup winner, Sirius was in fine form in 1944 and, as favourite at 3/1, carried Darby Munro to his second Cup win. He earlier won on Peter Pan and later on Russia. Sirius was a tough durable stayer in great form, having won both the Herbert Power Handicap and Hotham Handicap in his lead-up races to the Cup. This large framed photograph of Sirius winning the Cup is impressive and always takes the eye.




Right from the beginning when it was announced that the Invictus Games would take place in Sydney in October 2018, there was never any doubt that it would be an unbridled success.

Despite less than perfect weather for the opening, it was “clear sailing” for an event which truly had the public enthralled.

Opened and closed by His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, who was accompanied by the Duchess of Sussex, the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 saw some 500 competitors from 18 nations participating in 13 sports to the delight of captivated galleries.

Royalty was in abundance with Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik also in attendance to cheer on the Danish team.

There were numerous highlights throughout the week with all events very well supported but there was one incident in particular that occurred which cemented the goal of the Invictus Games. Dutch competitor Edwin Vermetten came to the aid of fellow competitor Paul Guest from the UK who was overcome when a chopper flying overhead triggered his PTSD during their tennis match. Mr Vermetten was subsequently honoured for his exceptional performance at the Games as was NZ archer and wheelchair rugby competitor George Napata, who is a tetraplegic, for his sheer determination.

The first edition of the Official Photography Book to commemorate the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 is now available for pre-order. Discover the ambition and confidence of competitors through stunning live-action photography and intimate stories. Why not pre-order your copy at Profits from sales of the book will support work to aid Australian veterans.

The Invictus Games is an international sporting event for wounded injured and ill defence personnel and veterans. The Invictus Games uses the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding of and respect for those that serve in the armed forces.

With some 40,578 excited patrons in attendance, the biggest crowd in decades at Royal Randwick witnessed the second running of the $13 million The TAB Everest on 13 October 2018.

It was victory for the second year in succession to Redzel (Snitzel-Millrich) who took his prizemoney earnings to a whopping $15,342,000 when he duly saluted from Trapeze Artist (Snitzel-Treppes) with Osborne Bulls (Street Cry(IRE)-Jerezana) in third place.

Our congratulations to all the lucky connections and slot holders.

The world’s richest race on turf has not only grabbed the attention of the Australian racing industry, but also the international racing industry with a first time international runner, US Navy Flag (USA), competing in the race as well as a global audience watching via Sky Racing.

Last year at the conclusion of the event, we presumed that The Everest would “peak” again in 2018 which it surely did. It is staggering to think what heights it will achieve in years to come!

Run under weight-for-age conditions, The Everest is unique in Australian racing in that the race is open to local and international buyers to purchase a place (slot) in the race at a price of $600,000. Twelve slots were sold in The Everest through an expression of interest entitling the owner of the slot an entry in the field. The owners of these slots were able to trade their position or alternatively partner with owners not holding a slot to enter a horse in the final field for the race.




The inaugural running of the $1.3 million The Kosciuszko, the world’s richest country race, took place on 13 October 2018 at Royal Randwick before a record breaking crowd.

Success went to Belflyer (Bel Esprit-Flying Ruby) who scored from Suncraze (Henrythenavigator(USA)-Sunstyle) who is owned by NSWROA member Mr Antony Gow-Gates with Awesome Pluck (Pluck(USA)-Shackelite) in third position.

Belflyer, who is trained in Grafton by John Shelton, had a large gathering of extremely excited supporters present following his victory. His success in this race has bolstered his prizemoney earnings to date to $951,005.

Our congratulations to the lucky owners and slot holders.



The NSW Racehorse Owners Association (NSWROA) was greatly saddened to hear of the passing of longstanding NSWROA member Mr Dato Tan Chin Nam on 21 October 2018, aged 93 years. On behalf of the NSWROA Committee and our members, we extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Wor Lin and family.

Often regarded as one of the luckiest owners in the land, Dato Tan was a four time winner of the race that stops a nation, the Melbourne Cup, with Think Big (twice), Saintly and Viewed. He also saw success in the W S Cox Plate with Saintly and So You Think on two occasions as well as numerous black type wins with other gallopers.

His partnership with racing legend Bart Cummings was synonymous with victory creating one of the most successfully owner/trainer combinations this country has ever seen.

His love and dedication to our industry was renowned and he will be sorely missed by all.

May he rest in peace.

Sharon Hunt
Executive Officer

The new Polytrack will be built in place of the existing dirt track and will be 13.5m wide and almost 2000m in circumference. Once the Polytrack is complete and operational, the ATC will start work in early 2019 on a separate sand track upgrade.

BOBS now 16 years strong

Quackerjack (Josh Parr) cruises away with a BOBS bonus at Royal Randwick.

The Racing NSW Breeder Owner Bonus Scheme has become the most popular racing incentive scheme in Australia since it began paying bonus prizemoney back in 2002.

BOBS has entered its 16th year and gets stronger each season, having paid out 1307 bonuses in 2017-18 for a total of $12 million including bonuses and double up vouchers.

These figures show how successful the BOBS scheme is, but even more impressive when paired with BOBS Extra where last season an extra $802,000 was distributed to owners of BOBS Extra horses.

BOBS continues to grow each season, with more breeders and owners nominating stallions and two-year-old horses – this in turn leads to more bonuses being paid out and therefore, more nominations.

And the fact that BOBS bonuses can be won at all NSW tracks (except in Group and some Listed Races), means that trainers and owners racing outside of the Metropolitan tracks can continue to race their horses closer to home, reducing travel and increasing the competition and class of racing at Provincial and Country racecourses.

BOBS mare bonuses commenced in August 2017 and in accordance with a proposal from the Thoroughbred Breeders of NSW, the conditions of BOBS were altered to pay bonuses to the owners of mares breeding to BOBS-eligible stallions.

This replaced the existing bonus payment made to owners of nominated stallions, with these stallion owners agreeing to forego that bonus to create a larger payment to the broodmare owners.

The change has added a further $2 million annually to bonus payments from BOBS to the owner of mares. Racing NSW funds $1 million of the additional monies to broodmare owners.

Some quick facts on BOBS: -

  • Racing NSW has paid out more than $129 million in bonus prizemoney since BOBS began 16 years ago
  • Of the BOBS bonuses won, two-year-old horses won 186 (14%) and three-year-old horses accounted for 1121 (86%) wins
  • In 2017-18 BOBS Extra bonuses were won on 122 occasions with a total of $802,000 having been distributed through BOBS Extra
  • Some 10 of the 13 leading sires by value of bonuses are Australian-bred.

Since the Double-Up option was introduced in January 2005, more than $37 million has been put back into the NSW breeding industry through this scheme, benefiting not just breeders, but also owners and trainers.



A WINNER – there are no better words for an owner to hear! As members are aware, as part of our membership renewal process, NSWROA requested members to forward the names of their racehorses in order for us to acknowledge their racing triumphs in our publications.

The listing under comprises wins recorded in New South Wales as well as Australian black type successes which are recorded in bold type.

Accordingly, hereunder are the lucky NSWROA members who had winners in October 2018:
