The Mamas & The Papas With the weather morphing between still oppressively muggy days and skies of scraggly winter clouds there s a hint of autumn in the air. Any doubts as to the seasonal ebbs and flows were cast aside in the space of a hundred metres or so when All Too Hard purred to the lead in the Gr1 CF Orr Stakes the true signal that autumn is nigh. As the first step of the herculean task that lies ahead if he is to line up at Royal Ascot for the Gr1 Queen Anne Stakes winning first-up over 1400m against quality company was another giant stride in a career whose promise is now delivering. Being a half-brother to Black Caviar means the kid s taken a lot of stick. Branded a wannabee after getting too far out of his ground in a few Sydney starts All Too Hard has bounced back with a contemptuous swagger and will be a daunting foe in each of his remaining bouts. Perhaps it s just perception yet where new season form generally holds up from the back end of a season just past autumn invariably conjures up some exciting newcomers. That s partly due to the number of juveniles who ve been reserved to show off their wares in summer s twilight. But it s equally true of hitherto below the radar 3-year-olds who left for the holiday paddocks as sinewy teenagers only to return to school as young athletes carrying the benefit of a lazy summer s sun across broadened backs. Thus it will be that by mid-winter there ll be a new lexicon of monikers that will have eased their way into Australian turf vernacular. Meanwhile the days imperceptibly continue to shorten as we move inexorably towards autumn proper. It s not so much a case of the clock ticking as it is the perennial question For whom will the bell toll By the time all the leaves have fallen we will know the answer.

Renee Geelen provides an abridged overview of how we got there and how the saga played out in court. A SUMMARY ost people in the Australian racing industry will have heard of the widely publicised Artificial Insemination (AI) court case and pretty much everyone has an opinion on whether the introduction of AI would be a great or terrible thing for themselves. Most people probably have an opinion on the wider effects on the Australian industry too. The case allowed all those opinions to be aired and tested in court and ultimately for the discussion on AI to be resolved in an Australian context. I worked as a consultant to the Australian Stud Book and Thoroughbred Breeders Australia during the proceedings and thus had insightful knowledge of the case between ex-bookmaker and retired Sydney Turf Club chairman Bruce McHugh and various racing authorities. Those authorities were the Australian Jockey Club and Victoria Racing Club (as joint proprietors of the Australian Stud Book) the Australian Racing Board and Racing Information Services Australia M The Australian Stud Book was a co-respondent (RISA). The scene was set in May 2009 when McHugh wrote to the Australian Stud Book requesting they set up a parallel register for AIbred racehorses. When this was refused due to the international ban on AI in Thoroughbreds the Australian Stud Book received a Statement of Claim in November 2009. Over the next year there was a period of discovery where both sides had access to documentation and put together their respective arguments. In May 2010 RISA was excused from participation by agreement from both parties during mediation with all parties. Thoroughbred Breeders Australia was successful in their submission to join the case in July 2010 and became the fifth respondent. In November 2010 the official notification of action against was received and in February 2011 the AJC merged with the Sydney Turf Club to form the Australian Turf Club in which case the ATC was added to the case as a respondent (as new part-owner of the Australian Stud Book). The case was heard in September 2011 over a Bruce McHugh 4 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM six-week period with final summations heard on 19 December 2011. A year to the day later the judgment was handed down on 19 December 2012 in favour of the respondents. There were 14 lay witnesses for McHugh s team plus a veterinary and an economist while the respondents team was represented by 11 lay witnesses and they also had a vet and an economist to discuss the wider issues. McHugh challenged the ban on AI in Thoroughbreds by arguing that the exclusion of AI-bred horses from the Australian Stud Book and subsequently from the register permitting thoroughbreds to race was contrary to section 45 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 and further that the ban is a restraint of trade under common law. While the court did not make any judgment on the use of AI the majority of the hearing was filled with the arguments on the merits and downsides of AI both as a technology and in terms of the wider impact of a rule change on the current industry. The case was presided over by the Honourable Justice Alan Robertson. His 1 611 paragraph judgment started with an outline of the history of the discussion and ban on AI in the international world of racing over 100 paragraphs. This included the first evidence of a ban in 1949 in Australia as a way of ensuring the correct pedigrees in an era before bloodtyping or DNA. At this point each country was responsible for their own Stud Book rules. In 1976 the International Stud Book Committee was established and the ban on AI was formalised internationally. However all parties decided to keep the subject under review particularly in relation to the new technology of bloodtyping. The wording of Article 12 of the Federation Agreement was finally agreed in 1982 and this defines the Thoroughbred as being naturally conceived and born for all countries that are signatories to the International Agreement. The evidence by witnesses for both sides takes up a large portion of the judgment (1 071 paragraphs) but is best summed up in Judge Robertson s findings (70 paragraphs). Among the outline of the size of the Australian industry in 2009 are some interesting facts Australia has more racecourses than any other single country (367) There were 360 tracks and 2 694 race meetings with 19 281 flat races. The prize money was 427 245 771 and total returns to owners was 481 322 903. Australia has the second or third largest number of races behind the USA and Japan Australiaoffersthethirdlargestamountof prize money in the world ( 421 095 890) Australiahasthesecondhighestfoalcrop (16 112 in 2009) behind USA (31 224) in the world Ofthemorethan450registeredstudsin Australia 324 stand only one stallion. The largest stud (Darley) stood 18 stallions in 2009. Stallionfeesrangedfrom 400to 176 000. The average price for the 4 831 yearlings sold at auction in 2009 was 53 009 with the median 21 000. One of the key arguments for McHugh was that AI would reduce costs for broodmare owners. Judge Robertson found that there was no evidence to suggest that both agistment and transport costs would definitely be cheaper under AI but that it was reasonable to expect that the broodmare owner would have more options and some of these options may be cheaper. However it was found that veterinary costs would be similar for both natural cover and the use of fresh semen slightly higher for the use of chilled semen and much higher for the use of frozen semen. In addition it was found that the this is further shown by the fluctuation in the group of big studs with the names and owners of the largest studs changing over time even in a reasonably short seven year period. One of the major points of discussion during the case was the impact of a change in the AI rules in Australia on the international aspects of the industry. Judge Robertson found that while racing and breeding is international only a relatively few Thoroughbreds directly participate internationally with 1 833 exported horses and 603 imported horses in 2009. (As horses from several different crops as exported each year this translates into an average of 6% of the foal crop being exported valued annually at approximately 180million per annum). The McHugh team argued that if AI ban was found to be contrary to section 45 and thus was The whole idea of Thoroughbred breeding is quality not quantity in which case market share would remain with the quality stallions... use of fresh semen had similar fertility rates to natural service (at 70-75%) chilled semen had lower fertility rates at 60-70% and frozen semen was much lower at around 50%. This means that the opportunity cost of having a mare not in foal each season also needed to be considered. McHugh s team submitted that stallion service fees would be reduced under AI but Judge Robertson could not find a basis on which to conclude if this was probable or not finding that the decision would be something for each individual stallion owner to consider into order to maximise their own profit (AI or not). He did find that the use of AI increases the choices for broodmare owners but that this does not automatically translate into an increase in competition in the marketplace. In particular Judge Robertson found that there would not be a reduction in market power of the studs if AI were permitted. He found that the larger studs compete between themselves that fees are not set by reference to the cost of production but rather to maintain the profitability for the stallion owner. Just having more services available from smaller studs under AI does not establish any reduction in market power by the larger studs. In particular the whole idea of Thoroughbred breeding is quality not quantity in which case market share would remain with the quality stallions. McHugh s team stated that the major studs benefit from the current status as they can bundle together stallion services with broodmare services including agistment. However Judge Robertson found that there was sufficient competitive pressure from broodmare and walk-on properties in the current environment that this argument was not valid. Adding to this conclusion Judge Robertson stated that there is competition between the major studs and allowed for use in Australia the rest of the world would soon follow and thus the international impact would be small. The respondents argued that it was not this simple that the ISBC would not recognise the Australian Stud Book as a signatory if we repealed Article 12 and our status on the global stage would be severely reduced. Judge Robertson found that McHugh s team did not provide strong enough evidence to prove that other jurisdictions would voluntarily follow suit and further that the Australian Court could not assess the law in foreign countries and thus any prospect of success could not be automatically concluded in favour of a change. On the issue of international recognition Judge Robertson found that if the Australian Stud Book was forced by the courts to make a change to include AI-bred horses it would not immediately and automatically lose international status. However Judge Robertson found that the ISBC would ultimately decide that the Australian Stud Book would no longer be an approved stud book and it would just be a matter of timing as to when the loss of approved status would occur. He also found that a further consequence of allowing AI-bred horses to race alongside Thoroughbreds would be a complete loss of Australia s black type from the global cataloguing standards. Therefore Australian racing would cease to be part of the international community and this isolation would have long ranging consequences for all players in the industry. Another consideration was the impact on the domestic market and Judge Robertson found that the introduction of AI would have little impact as prices paid for horses are determined by available prizemoney rather than cost of production. Domestic buyers would not pay a different price for AI-bred or naturally bred horses if they were allowed to compete together for the same FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM 5 AI COURT CASE A SUMMARY (cont) Considerable value Australia s breeding industry Australia has 360 racecourses prizemoney. Judge Robertson also found that both the domestic markets for service fees and for the sale of Thoroughbreds were national (not state based) due to the relatively small cost of transport compared to the prices paid (for both service fees and horses). But in the end this case was decided on legal arguments not the scientific or economic discussions. Firstly there is the question of whether the rule defining the Thoroughbred although based on out-dated reasoning is an attribute of the sport. Judge Robertson found that since McHugh s team accepted that the Thoroughbred is defined by horses of particular bloodlines it is conceptually difficult for them not to accept that the Thoroughbred is defined by horses of particular bloodlines bred in a particular way. McHugh s team however stated that there was a logical distinction because the method of conception had nothing to do with the performance of the horse and thus had no bearing on the nature of the sport. Judge Robertson disagreed finding that the core of racing is defined by reference to every horse s breeding so the method of conception is a key part of the nature of the sport. Further Judge Robertson said that the current ban on AI has pro-competitive effects as it contributes to the interest of those who play the game. Judge Robertson found that if the ban on AI was over-turned even without considering the international flow-on effects that the demand for horses would diminish and competition would be reduced. Therefore the action based on the current rules being contrary to section 45 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 failed because McHugh steamdidnotprovideenough evidence that the current rules lead to substantial lessening of competition Judge Robertson found that there was no evidence to suggest that both agistment and transport costs would definitely be cheaper under AI... Ofthelegaldefinitionsofacontractin relation to the rules of a sport McHughagreedhedidnotneedthePro prietors of the Australian Stud Book to establish his own register for AI horses. As to the restraint of trade argument in common law the law requires an applicant to establish that the restraint was unreasonable at the time it was imposed and Judge Robertson found that McHugh s team could not do this given his acceptance of the reasonableness of the alleged restraints when they were imposed many decades ago to prevent the attribution of incorrect paternity to a thoroughbred horse. Because the judgment was handed down a few days before Christmas the typical ten-day period for McHugh s team to notify the court if they wanted to appeal the decision was extended by Judge Robertson until 31 January 2013. This day passed without any further public action from McHugh. This story is yet to be completely concluded as McHugh s barrister retired over the Christmas break and there is a slight possibility that this could lead to a further extension of the appeal notification period. Whether McHugh appeals in the near future or not this case most likely puts the AI argument to bed in Australia for the time being. Ultimately this case proved not to be about the introduction of technology to our industry but rather about the authority that the industry has to set its own rules. AI and other technologies will (and should) always be open as points for discussion. Whatever opinion individuals hold on the merits or otherwise of AI Australia is part of a global industry and this type of change needs to be agreed by all 69 signatories to the International Agreement on Breeding and Racing. 6 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM WHEN THE SEAS OF L WATERTIGHT COVER IFE GET ROUGH IS YOUR LIFEBOAT With horses as in life it pays to know the risks involved.

US racing conditions are different THE VEXED QUESTION OF ack in December 1949 a big headline in the Smith s Weekly proudly stated Doping is now a thing of the past. Drugs have always been a problem in horse racing and as in society my guess is they always will be. I have always thought it is one thing to talk bullshit it is another to believe it. Medication control in most racing countries of the world outside North and South America is covered by Article 6 of the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities. This article contains in its preamble the general principle that all horses should compete on their natural merits with neither an artificial advantage nor disadvantage. All racing people would agree the effective control of medication in racing horses is essential. This is so if the breed is to be continually improved and the welfare of the horses and riders is to be maintained. But I believe the control must not be so stringent that it interferes with the freedom of good veterinary surgeons to medicate individual horses or that it could be argued to be unfair to owners and trainers. To implement the principle of Article 6 racing has relied on so called Zero Tolerance . This concept presupposes that there is a point in time at which a horse to which a substance has been administered no longer has in its body any residual amount of the administered substance. Clearly this concept is false. In reality a horse excretes any administered substance exponentially. Zero is therefore in theory never reached. What is meant by Zero is in fact that the substance is no longer detectable using standard analytical methods. Being fair dinkum about this in other words in house thresholds. Laboratories can easily change their methods and so take advantage of new analytical methods. And so they should to detect even minute quantities of potent drugs that could threaten the integrity of racing. But equally they should be careful not to go chasing low concentrations of legitimate medications long after they have any effect on the horse. Good veterinarians should always be allowed to treat their patients with appropriate and justifiable medicines. Surely the horses deserve this. But we all know there does come a time when we have to protect the gamest and most generous of horses from even himself. Most so called drugs in horses are on the face of it benign. They are given for therapeutic purposes. It is acknowledged that the effect on performance of these drugs when administered appropriately is generally minimal. In the United States a sore horse can run and often runs well on Phenlybutazone bute but later it could end up crippled. These days in the U.S. most horses run on drugs and of course the practice is legal. There are moves afoot however to change things and not before time. There are many anti-inflamatory substanc- B Sometimes the paddock is best All racing people would agree the effective control of medication in racing horses is essential... es which can certainly affect performance especially those horses getting old or with leg problems. Without some help a lot of such horses could not race at all. Anyone who cares about horses will deplore the use of any substance which is designed to improve or detract from the performance of a competing horse. Therapeutic medications are around all racing stables and in the boot of most vets cars. They are agents used to promote the health and welfare of the horse. Most laboratories around the world have what is known as In house thresholds . In other words when testing for legitimate therapeutics the analyst limits the sensitivity of his analytical methods. So administratively a trace is still a positive The public hear drugs and horse racing. Racing believe me is never quite what it seems. Over the years racing administrators have set out to put in place this scene where everyone talks about every race horse being drug free . In theory it s a great goal but sorry it can t be done. Still people would like to see every horse competing on an equal footing. Drug free racing is completely dependent on the sensitivity of analytical procedures. Drug free racing is a difficult concept to manage. The cheapest and most useful antibiotic is of course Procain Penicillin. But it is banned within 21 days of racing. I m told Procain as a surface anaesthetic is quite ineffective. For example if a horse has an infection from a cut the logical antibiotic is Penicillin. But be careful. Horses are racing more frequently these days and need to be cared for better than ever. Even today the most highly respected and sought after thoroughbred horse comes out of the United Kingdom. This situation has been to a large extent achieved through their drug control. Everyone I think accepts that generally horses in the UK have the ability to perform under stress carrying big weights and run times which over some sections are exceptional. Moves to extend this highly desirable state of affairs to the United States has created much controversy. Why That s easy. The conditions are so very different in the U.S. as they are in Australia. In most states of the U.S. horses are permitted to race with acceptable levels of therapeutic medication in their system. This allows them to perform up to the limits of their natural ability and importantly to perform more often. But a lot of good horse people will tell you the American thoroughbred is not as tough as he used to be. He s a far more fragile animal than those of the past. There are not too many John Henry types in America today. Many good horse people say there are too many racehorses ending up dead on American tracks. There are many shades of moralists cheering on one side or the other from outside the fence... but in practice a positive is only called if the labs unpublished threshold is exceeded. Good laboratories with sophisticated analytical procedures are capable of detecting substances both therapeutic and naturally occurring at levels to which absolutely no significance can be ascribed. Hence we have in house thresholds and so out the door goes talk of Zero Tolerance in relation to drugs. Personally I believe most racing people trainers and owners want to play by the rules. A lot of people think I m na ve maybe so. But over the years there has been an awful lack of communication on treating horses and all too frequently this winds up giving the sport a good kick in the guts. I can understand trainers frustration particularly the innocent ones over positives being called on minimum finds. FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM 9 THE VEXED QUESTION OF PROHIBITED SUBSTANCES (cont) Australia has hard winter tracks Drugs of the phenylbutazone group which are used to reduce inflammation and lessen pain are often used when the best alternative is to turn the sore horse out into a nice soft paddock and let nature do some healing. The whole racing system in America depends on having horses at the track. They work hard to have at least 8 in every race. This allows the Pari Mutuel offices to pay win place and show dividends. There are no legal bookmakers in the United States. Lots of tracks have meets which run over 60 70 and even 80 days. This kind of arrangement obviously means horses have to compete many times. How else can they keep fields up And most of the racing is done on surfaces other than grass. This does lead to soreness and even lameness which requires therapeutic treatment if horses are to be kept up. It follows that horses have had to be permitted to race on drugs particularly those of the anti-inflammatory type. The drug is given close to race day and of course is still active in the horse when it races. The public are informed of this in various ways. A B could appear beside the horses name in the race book and there are lists posted prominently around the track. They do try hard to keep the fans fully informed about treatment the horse they fancy may have had. The other prominent drug used in America is the diuretic Lasix which supposedly suppresses bleeding from the lungs. Many are very critical of the system in America. They say treatments designed to repair a horse s injuries and to alleviate its suffering are now used to get the poor horse back onto the track to compete one more time indeed to force the horse like some punch drunk fighter to go just one more round. Over the years Australian racing authorities have resisted going down the American track. Firstly they say that in this country we have enough horses to make up good fields. In the past many horses have had to be balloted not so much these days. Secondly it s been said the administration involved and the supervision required to check horses that are supposed to be on medication would be very time consuming and costly. If they are listed It is very difficult for analysts to say with any real accuracy just when a drug was administered.... as on a medication then they must race on it. Thirdly there is always the possibility of an anti inflammatory masking some other drug. Lasix certainly has the potential to do this. Analysts always say it is very difficult for them to say with any real accuracy just when a drug was administered. Quite how they manage the system in America I really don t know. So the Australian authorities simply reckoned the best way forward was to insist that horses on race day be free of drugs. Obviously the buck stops with the trainer and I guess often his or her veterinary surgeon. Trainers for years have been saying they need better guidelines. They say they should be told how much of any therapeutic drug they can give and when it can be administered. Trainers say the so-called drug free rule is too all embracing. They know that with better technology available to analysts it is possible to find traces of a drug in a horse s system long after it is useful to the horse. This is why in house thresholds are so important and why it is necessary for analysts to announce any changes to their testing procedures. It goes without saying they should test till the cows come home for hits or stoppers. Trainers will tell you it s well nigh impossible for a horse to go through a preparation and not need some kind of therapeutic treatment. They will always point out how different racing in Australia is from the United Kingdom. In the UK horses race on easier tracks often on grass that s soft and lush and over the fetlocks. In Australia our climate is so different hotter obviously and this in itself leads to harder tracks. Trainer Bart Cummings has been making this point for years. Most of our tracks are flat and usually our races are run at a quicker tempo. That said I am sorry to see the pace of racing in Australia easing off. In the UK owning a racehorse is almost exclusively confined to the rich and wealthy. Most horses are raced by single owners or families and they go about the sport in a very different way. The horses are often given long slow preparations. In Australia high costs are forcing people into Syndicates and often horses are owned by 15 or 20 people. So maybe there are two different worlds the highly desirable drug-free or the acceptable therapeutic world where controlled and known levels of many drugs will be acceptable. Trainers will always tell you the first world can t be properly achieved. Administrators will tell you the second world is open to abuse and not good for the breed. The debate thus appears to me to be between the purists and pragmatists. There are many shades of moralists cheering on one side or the other from outside the fence. As an example Bute is an anti inflammatory and the jockey may even be taking it himself for a sprained wrist. To many it is a peculiar local anaesthetic and in certain circumstances a stimulant which simply must be banned. The time is coming when a greater empathy should be forged between controlling bodies owners trainers veterinarians and analysts just for the welfare of the poor old horse. In my opinion medication is mandatory to keep horses sound happy and in work. This in turn assists owners to pay up trainers to run their business and punters to keep playing. There really is no simple solution but administrators would do well to remember public perception is everything in racing. 10 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM Gow-Gates Insurance Brokers Specialising in thoroughbred insurances Gow-Gates has been arranging all forms of Equine Insurance for racehorse owners and breeders for over 30 years.

With his family fulfilling various roles in the industry including that of owner breeder YOUNG TURKS I Aquanita Racing banner has established himself as one of the leading trainers in Perth since his move west in 2008. After achieving the best strike rate of any trainer in the last racing season with 28.3% winners-to-runners Miller is again setting the benchmark higher with Miller will be attempting to emulate his feat of 2012 in winning both the Magic Millions Perth 2YO and 3YO races... syndicator and bookmaker Miller began going to the races when he was young. However it was not until his time working for Goggin that he decided he loved the game and wanted to be the first member of his family to dabble in training. Fast forward to 2013 and Miller under the 12 an impressive 30.3% for the current season and sitting second on the Western Australian Trainers Premiership. Following his part-time work with Goggin Miller got serious about building his future training career and spent six years with Robbie Griffiths at Cranbourne before getting the call from John O Shea with the offer of a position of Assistant Trainer. At first not keen about a move to Sydney Miller received support from his good friend and expert form analyst Deane Lester. He said if you re serious you ve got to give it a go Miller recalls. At the start of 2008 Miller received his opportunity-shaping break and accepted the role from Aquanita to train in Perth. Whilst organising the move he spent six valuable months at Caulfield under the guidance of fellow Aquanita trainer Robert Smerdon. Miller credits his present day training techniques and success to what he has learned from his time spent with mentors Robbie Griffiths John O Shea and Robert Smerdon revealing he has modelled himself in part on each one. All have been a big influence. When there is an issue in the stable you often find yourself thinking what would each one do Miller tells. Setting up a stable from scratch is no easy task so the timing of the partnership with Aquanita Racing suited Miller. I didn t have a business to conduct the administrative side and this model allows me to concentrate on the horses to do the training. It s a huge asset Miller states. When Miller moved west in mid-2008 he took five horses one stable hand and one track rider. Today his stable has grown to 34 horses in work and a staff of around 17. An indicator of the strong team he has built is shown with that same foundation stable hand and track rider remaining as senior members of his staff. Miller s success on the racetrack commenced with his first yearling purchase from the Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale. The Beautiful Crown gelding Sacred Crown won three races and went really well and things just kept rolling Miller explains. The biggest win to date in his training career occurred in 2011 when Night War (General Nediym-Samar) was victorious in the Gr2 Karrakatta Plate for two-year-olds. These raceday results and word of mouth have been significant to developing his ownership base according to Miller. One of Miller s loyal owners is former AFL star and Freemantle Dockers Captain Peter Bell. The pair has enjoyed remarkable success thus far with Bell having been a part-owner of Night War and current stable stakes-winners Miss Solis and Hard Ball Get. Miller explains having a high profile stable client who is well regarded in the local community set a positive precedent for sourcing new owners. Ahead of the commencement of the Melbourne Festival of Racing the next exciting phase of Miller s training career is about to take shape. Miller is travelling his three-year-old filly Darlington Abbey (Stratum-Wynyard Hall) east to chase Melbourne black-type. The filly who won last season s Listed Gimcrack Stakes at Ascot and the Magic Millions Perth 2YO Classic will be Miller s first runner in Melbourne. Her east coast program aims include the Kevin Hayes Stakes Angus Armana- FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM sco Stakes and the Kewney Stakes. Darlington Abbey is not the only likely traveller for Miller this Autumn.

As well as this to look forward to during February Miller will be attempting to emulate his feat of 2012 in winning both the Magic Millions Perth 2YO and 3YO races after becoming the first trainer to achieve this honour with Darlington Abbey and Night War last year. Miller looks to have a strong line-up particularly in the three-year-old event with both Hard Ball Get and Portonian set for the race. In the midst of a busy racing season Simon Miller places huge importance on the yearling sales relative to the operations of his stables. I don t buy tried horses Miller tells. I ve always prided myself on buying yearlings. If you get it wrong in the selection process you ll feel it for the next two years he adds. With yearling selection process paramount the first thing Miller looks for in a yearling is athleticism. I buy on type. As soon as I love a horse I open the catalogue page to see what I have to pay for it Miller further tells. His results for buying on type speak for themselves most recently highlighted by three-year-old filly Grey Cheval. Miller purchased the daughter of Husson Lightning from the Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale for just 9 000. Grey Cheval s race record is now four wins from four starts and 203 000 in prizemoney for her ecstatic group of female owners. Once in the stable Miller employs a strict performance-based rationale when assessing his horses. He prefers to tell owners to move horses on immediately he feels they are not good enough to win races. I focus on the quality of horses and keeping the good ones Miller says. With such an outstanding strike rate on the board it appears likely Simon Miller could be writing his own entry into the famous Miller s Guide publication and that entry is soaring.

John Gilmore assesses the challenges facing both participants and regulators. On-course bookies are a dying breed 14 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM etting Exchanges have revolutionized gambling on racehorses over the past 10 years enabling the general public to act like bookmakers and lay odds or be a punter and take a price either prior to the race or in-running. In Britain it has created a whole new breed of punters especially for in-running betting where many astute players can sit at home each afternoon glued to their computers and televised racing screens and make money on a regular basis. It has been made an even more attractive form of betting courtesy of the British Government Gambling regulations in 2005 giving people the opportunity to act like bookmakers on Betting Exchanges without requiring them to be licensed as a bookmaker or pay taxes on profits. Only the Betting Exchange who is an administrator is required to have a Betting licence. It has also created a new breed of professional gamblers appearing on the track where groups of players working together have taken exchange betting to a higher level. They book rooms on racetracks using their computers and live Televised screens giving them up to 3 seconds delay advantage between the screened action as it happens on-course and the TV racing channel of exchange players at home. Racecourses on the look out for extra income wherever it may come from have been only too happy to accommodate. All racecourses in England are now covered and a room at a top track like Ascot will cost around 500 a day plus travel expenses for up to six people putting total daily costs nearer the 1 000 mark. Profits can be enormous and in-running betting on racetracks is now a six figure business for those involved. But not everybody is happy about Betting Exchanges especially oncourse rails and off-course bookmakers. Robin Grossmith Director of the Federation of Racecourse bookmakers now 63 has been a rails bookmaker in Southern England for the past 30 years and a leading voice in racecourse bookmakers complaints against Betting Exchange groups operating on racetracks and who are not required to declare this income for tax purposes. The situation is not a level playing field as exchange betting is built on a foundation of straw said Grossmith If on-track exchange operators had to pay normal taxes as on-course rail bookmakers do they would have to stop or the costs be absorbed in added costs to the 2-5 percent commission B charged by Betting exchanges. As it is rail bookmakers have to pay six times the daily ring entry price each time they operate on the track plus staff costs travel and taxes while a good pitch at Cheltenham will cost 100 000 for 40 years to rent . Grossmith admitted that it is becoming harder and harder to make a decent living revealing The recession has been more severe than usual and normally we can ride out an economic downturn but this time there is less money around on the tracks with the average punter betting less and it is difficult to compete with prices on Betting Exchanges when they are not incurring our taxes. Everybody in the business is on a downer and margins are being badly squeezed - we are working to 1.4 percent a runner when it should be around 2 percent. I fear for some of the smaller tracks with prize money overall now so poor and think Folkestone and Hereford shutting down may be just the tip of the iceberg while the youngsters today are looking for a different type of bet rather than studying form for hours or spending a day at a racetrack. For an on-course bookmaker like Robin Grossmith who has spent a lifetime in the racing game his feelings are understandable. There are far too many meetings being put on in an effort to drum up more business but this creates some non-competitive poor prize money meetings with too few runners and so some days I just don t bother going as I can t make any money. Sadly we could be witnessing the last few years of the colourful on-course betting rings with smaller midweek meetings attracting less punters especially in the winter and more and more preferring to not move from the comfort of their home and watch the racing on TV where they use a computer to log into Betfair William Hill CEO Ralf Topping Sweden s Leif Almgren decision and the case is due to be heard during February. They claim it still leaves confusion as to the correct interpretation of who ought rightly to be considered a bookmaker and as a result who should be paying the levy. In the judicial review the court agreed customers of betting exchanges are not liable to pay the levy though not for the reasons put forward Profits can be enormous and in-running betting on racetracks is now a six figure business for those involved... or Betdaq when they fancy either laying the odds or taking a price. Off-course bookmakers themselves are also unhappy at the way Betting Exchanges have been allowed to operate in Britain. Leading British on-line and land-based Bookmaker William Hill with 2 400 betting shops took out legal proceedings last year designed to make customers of betting exchanges contribute to the horserace betting levy. This would also have other tax implications for those laying bets to be classified as bookmakers. The legal complaint was rejected by the 20 July 2012 judicial review in London. William Hill subsequently announced on August 3 that the company would appeal against the by either the Levy Board or Betfair. The judge ruled that whilst those carrying on a business of receiving bets are subject to a levy entities carrying out a business which merely includes the receiving of bets might not be. William Hill argues that the distinction between those types of entities particularly in the context of exchange users is not clear and that the reasoning was not argued at any point in the proceedings. The only means of resolving these uncertainties is through the Court of Appeal. Ralph Topping chief executive of William Hill commented We think it is important for bookmakers the Levy Board and horseracing that we take this to the Court of Appeal. FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM 15 BETTING BETWIXT & BETWEEN (cont) Independently from the arguments put before him the Judge drew his own conclusions as to the meaning of the act in question and we were never given an opportunity to address that thinking. We don t think it is right. The only simple interpretation of his judgement i.e. that no users of exchanges pay a levy even seems to go against what Parliament has said previously about both Levy taxation and licensing and could if challenged totally undermine any value to the Levy. We are certain this is fundamental to the future of the Levy Board and hence important to British horseracing and bookmakers and we believe [the situation] requires clarification. Ironically some Bookmakers themselves use Betting Exchanges to hedge bets. It is interesting to note that Betfair based In Gibraltar has for several years been making voluntary payment to the Levy and just prior to last July court case signed a five year agreement with the British Horseracing Association to pay 10.75 percent of its racing profits some 1 percent of turnover over the next five years. But the issue has much wider implications than individuals paying a levy deduction from their profits or turnover. The attraction of using betting exchanges is that apart from the commission they are charged of between 2-5 percent from winning bets there are no other charges involved. Generally exchange players can obtain better prices especially on outsiders. All this could change if Hills wins its appeal and betting exchange customers especially high volume players are classified as running a business. The probability of needing a bookmaker s licence to lay bets on Betting Exchanges would be difficult to introduce as it would need the co-operation of all countries round the world which is probably why Hills have gone down the Levy route as this could be collected by Betfair on top of their commis- Betdaq for 20m. Betdaq was set up by Irishman Dermot Desmond some 13 years ago as a rival to Betfair but it has failed to adequately compete Betfair has an estimated 90 percent market share and is still thought to be losing money despite offering clients a flat commission of 3 percent on winning bets compared to Betfair s 2-5 percent. Ladbrokes could offer the alternative of both fixed odds and betting exchange service in its betting shops and provide greater financial liquidity to the Betdaq Betfair is fully aware it would never get away with paying the sport [in the US] just around 1 percent of turnover as in England... sion charges. But if the Appeal Court again rejects William Hill s complaint the case is likely to end up at the European Court of Justice for a ruling where the French interpretation for banning Betting Exchanges will undoubtedly come into play the French claim they cannot give Betting Exchanges a licence as unlicensed individuals acting as bookmakers on Betting Exchanges contradicts these principles. But if you can t beat them then join them might be the order of the day. Leading British bookmaker Ladbrokes recently purchased product although it would need to invest heavily in marketing the product given Betfair s Exchange dominance. But in Europe things have been very challenging for Betfair with a number of countries making it difficult to obtain a licence or putting in place what Betfair considers too high tax levels. Betfair has generally not been afraid to challenge countries through the European Courts who do not allow it access to their betting market. In the past two years this strategy has proved costly and not very successful. Sweden has tried to ban foreign bookies 16 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM In June 2010 the European Court of Justice upheld the Dutch Government s exclusion of a case brought by Ladbrokes and Betfair to exclude both companies from its territory on the grounds this formed part of a broader range of legislation designed to curtail problem gambling. Entering the Spanish market was also a setback for Betfair as it was excluded from the first round of licences given. And last November Betfair announced it was withdrawing its online sports betting exchange in Germany sighting the country s new licensing sports tax regime of 5 percent on turnover to be uneconomical. Betting companies prefer to operate in countries that implement a gross profits tax deduction rather than turnover related. Approximately 4 percent of Betfair s betting exchange revenue came from Germany and this revenue worked out to around 6m profit before operating costs. In regards to regulation the European regulatory landscape has been changeable over the past few years and that looks likely to continue to develop in the years ahead said Leonie Foster Head of Corporate Communications at Betfair. Our decision to withdraw from Germany and indeed Greece is part of our strategy to focus on jurisdictions where regulation is clearer. While this will impact on Group revenue growth for a period of time we believe it better positions the company for the long term and ensures that the quality of earnings is improved. However we will continue to work closely with European Government and national regulators where possible to try and find solutions to regulatory issues. For Sweden the second most successful racing nation on mainland Europe behind France things have not worked out quite so well. The European Court of Justice successfully upheld their ban on foreign online gam- fixed races etc. Last year total horserace turnover was 12 419m Swedish kroners down from the 2011 figures of 13 111m and lower than the 2010 total of 12 803m. It is not surprising that all leading British Bookmakers have refused to apply for a horserace licence in France (where Betting Exchanges are banned) since June 2010 when the market was opened claiming the 8 percent of betting turnover returned to racing for online betting within the pari-mutual system was too Off-course betting shop expensive when in Britain they pay a lot less.

After posting four Gr1 victories from 1400 metres up to the metric equivalent of two miles Jeune was given the privilege of standing at the Hayes family s Lindsay Park in South Australia. By the time of his premature death in 2006 the son of Kalaglow had forged an admirable stud career siring gallopers of the calibre of Mummify (MRC Caulfield Cup MRC Yalumba S. MRC Underwood S.

Astute horsemen and horsewomen judge the potential of youngsters by an assessment of conformation movement size and balance while taking into account the results of airway and skeletal examinations. Unfortunately the predisposition of a 2 year old to shinsoreness is not something that can be accessed early and yet it is possibly the greatest limiting factor to 2 year old racing performance. Bonafide s active ingredient Quinaquanone is the only proven and patented Vitamin K1 and K2 product available that has shown in trials to significantly reduce the incidence of shinsoreness (DMD) in 2 year olds. That s why many of Australia s leading trainers insist that every horse in their stable receives a daily dose of Bonafide either in their Mitavite race feed or as a supplement. It makes sound economic sense. Vitamite Bonafide is available in 1.5kg 3kg 10kg and 20kg pails and is added to Mitavite s Premium race feeds Athlete Plus Formula 3 and XLR8.

However this can also lead to value purchases for buyers who simply concentrate on the raw fundamentals. PRINCIPLE YEARLING SELECTION For many Thoroughbred yearling selection is an intimidating venture into the unknown but it doesn t have to be writes Ross Brunt of Horsegears. the leading ace mares that leave the winners however the rationale behind this can be deceptive as every single good race mare is likely to have multiple siblings so the greater amount of siblings have the numbers on their side. Research and statistics from thoroughbredreview. com indicate that foals from quality race mares as opposed to quality bred mares doubles the chance of getting a stakes-winner. Racetrack soundness can also be passed down from quality race mares. However the dam s pedigree is not totally irrelevant as generally the dam is of a lower class to the sire and does not have enough produce to Conformation Analysis The KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) principle states that systems work best if simple rather than complex therefore simplicity should be a key goal and complexity should be avoided. Looking at both breeding and conformation in this article I theorise how promising yearlings can be identified by those with limited knowledge and experience by strictly applying the basics. Breeding Analysis Legendary breeding analyst Joseph Estes introduced a simple methodology. His theory is based on a foal obtaining its genes directly from its dam and sire and therefore for the foal to be a successful racehorse the direct parents must carry the essential fast genes. Consequently consideration of the racetrack and or produce record of the sire and dam is critical. Sires from leading studs with faltering reputations may have inflated ratios due to having served quality mares... definitively judge it by. A good second dam and particularly a proven maternal sire add value. However under Estes theory going any further back than this appears futile. Despite limited experience this simple logic can allow the buyer to value a horse based on its pedigree in a systematic manner. For example the buyer may estimate that a yearling from a mare with a few foals that has left a metropolitan winner to be worth approximately 85 000 or likewise left a stakes-winner 120 000 etc. This moderates the risk of prejudice due to factors of lowered significance. The Sire As the sire is likely to have a large number of offspring its produce record is generally the key. The well-documented statistical ratios can be a very good guide. For examples of how these ratios offer stallion insights see the application of stallion statistic tables and summary. The Dam The preferred broodmare is a good class racetrack performer and or a producer. For the mare lacking racetrack form having produced at least a winner or winners of good class is paramount. Although a mare may have no racetrack form itself if it has produced good winners this indicates it had ability but never showed it on the track. It is common theory that it s the siblings of The Weakest Link Legendary Thoroughbred trainers and breeders seem to have an eye for a horse this gives them the ability not only to select athletic types but further those that have specific gallop or racehorse levering. This level of expertise cannot be matched by the inexperienced buyer however any buyer can select yearlings with good overall bone structure that provides general athleticism without being a conformation expert. Included in any assessment are critical soundness factors like correct limbs and without undermining its importance as it s well documented I won t detail such here. The traditional buyer assesses the whole horse for flaws but a lack of flaws does not guarantee an athletic type and because this involves assessing a wide range of traits it leaves scope for error. This method is effectively judging a horse by its negatives. Good horses come in many shapes and sizes as this allows them to produce varied racetrack skills and excel over varied distances. Thus racehorse conformation can have variance without affecting top-end potential. The conformation selection process can be clarified by selecting horses that have good basic athletic traits provided the buyer knows what to look for. This allows the buyer to judge a horse by its positives. A Yearling s topline is key (See image). From this a buyer can quickly assess whether the horse has strong prime moving bones in its upper body which in turn provide it with general athletic traits. The topline is divided into three sections being the fore mid (or back) and hind. For the purpose of this article these sections will be defined by running vertical lines through the chest front wither hip and rear end. It s well accepted that a foal is likely to throw to its weakest line so strengths through both the sire and dam is critical. This is regardless of how strong a single line may appear. The Short Back Good topline lengths at both ends ensure critical strength through the fore and hindquarters. However instead of assessing each of the 28 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM portions individually the buyer can short list by assessing the back length. Many rate the short back as an athletic trait due it adding core strength but indirectly it also plays a key role in overall balance and prime moving strength. This is due to topline and height x length proportions. Measuring length from the chest front to rear end and height from the ground to wither nature adjusts the racehorse s body proportions and type to ensure that its length is generally close to its height. Therefore for the horse with a short back nature generally ensures the topline length and balance by providing it extra length through the fore and or hindquarters. Consequently for horses with a reasonable height x length proportion a short back and loins (Small of the back) guarantees a good fore and or hindquarters. In turn this provides strong athletic upper body prime moving strength. In contrast the long backed horse will have a comparatively weaker fore and or hindquarters and lessoned prime moving strength. For the buyer that fears that a yearling has too shorter back the overly short back will be likely to lengthen to a more reasonable length with maturity. Therefore a yearling with a short back is a safe bet. Observing the above will require some practice for those new to conformation so prospective buyers should first get their eye in at studs races prior sales etc. Refined application of stallion statistics Ratio Starters winners Starters stakes-winners Starters (3 x stakes-winners) ( X stakes horses) Prizemoney starters Stallion ratio Redoute s Choice Bel Esprit Exceed and Excel Falvelon Hidden Dragon Reset Elvstroem Clangalang Pure Theatre Dylan Thomas Street Boss S W 75% 66% 65% 64% 55.3 54% 54% 53% 46% 37% 31.5% S SW 11% 2.7% 7% 1.7% 1.8% 4% 2.7% 2.9% 0 2.3% 1.9% Abbreviation S W S SW S (3 x SW) (1 x stakes horses) API (Average prizemoney per starter) S (3 x SW) (SH) 43% 10% 26% 9% 7.4% 14% 10% 11% 0 11% 12% API 104 000 54 000 48 000 41 000 29 000 38 000 29 000 38 000 13 000 12 000 15 000 Back Length Illusions Even experienced horse people can struggle to accurately assessing back length. The correct way is to measure its length in relation to the top line. Other comparisons such as the girth depth and croup length can be misleading. A deep girth gives the appearance of a shorter back and a shallow girth a longer back. A long croup gives the appearance of a shorter back and a short croup a longer back. Immaturity Arguably the best guides As a horse usually grows not only from the base upwards but from the hind forwards a longer back and weaker fore are not uncommon in yearlings. However there is some risk for inexperienced buyers purchasing these types as they are relying on the conformation being maturity related where as in reality the horse may naturally always lack athleticism. Growth spurts can provide the yearling with the false impression of a sprinter due to a strong hind slightly longer back and forward set wither. Selecting a yearling that appears athletic does not guarantee a winner as ultimately a number of factors such as correct limbs muscle contraction nervous system so-ordination training etc play a part in determining realized ability. Soundness health issues should always be considered. Always seek Veterinary opinion if in doubt. The long backed horse will have a comparatively weaker fore and or hindquarters and lessoned prime moving strength... Refined application of stallion statistics Although there are always exemptions the ratios can confirm more about a stallion than simply its ability to pass on good genes. Falvelon has a high winner ratio and low stakes-winner ratio indicating he s a reliable sire of good early sprinters. In contrast Reset has only a moderate winner ratio and high stakes-winner ratio comparatively indicating he s ability to get slower maturing classic winners over distance. Sires from leading studs with faltering reputations may have inflated ratios due to having served quality mares. For up and coming sires with no offspring generally precocious sprinters make good stallions where as the middle distance or staying racehorse type is a riskier proposition.

INGLIS CLASSIC YEARLING SALE MAGIC MILLIONS REVIEW SUMMER BOOK 20 21 JAN 2013 By Gary Knowles EIGHT IS ENOUGH ON THE GOLD COAST T he lead up to this year s Australasian yearling sales included plenty of hype off the back of strong northern hemisphere growth since Keeneland September. While there was an air of confidence leading into the first of the majors Magic Millions the weight of expectation to get the ball rolling for the southern hemisphere would have felt like somewhat of an impost for the Gold Coastbased sales company. While still patchy in parts as are all sales managing director Vin Cox and his team need not have worried. A strong buying bench including a multitude of overseas orders ensured that the major sessions 1-4 would finish up 8 percent on 2012 s average. Not stunning perhaps but nonetheless coming off a stronger base than the US and Europe a good gauge of what vendors might expect for the forthcoming 6 months. A combination of relief and joy were probably what Cox felt at the end of the first 4 sessions the 4th (evening session) held immediately following another highly successful Magic Millions Gold Coast raceday held across the road. It s been an extremely strong sale Cox declared. It was pleasing to see the clearance rate climb again. Tonight s session was very strong and from a catalogue of just 90 lots for the average to rise again from yesterday is terrific. It was great to see the support of many newer players - both as vendors and buyers. The overall leading buyer for the sale was the powerful partnership of Gai Waterhouse and James Harron - signing for 27 yearlings at a spend of over 6 million. Another 21 lots heading to the Waterhouse stable will be the outstanding selection of purchases from Denise Martin of Star Thoroughbreds. The spend of over 2 million left Star second on the buyers table.

That the crisis of confidence would flow through to the thoroughbred sector was a fait accompli and yet many participants were surprised by just how quickly breeding statistics fell particularly in the northern hemisphere.

That this success has been outshone by the outstanding performances of the horses sold at the auction is phenomenal. Champions such as Black Caviar Starspangledbanner Sacred Kingdom Igugu and Weekend Hussler were all sourced from Inglis Oaklands sale ring at the Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale. Black Caviar confirmed her position as the greatest sprinter and the greatest female equine athlete world racing has seen in the modern era when she was recently crowned the World Champion Sprinter for the third straight year by the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities. The great mare s win in the Gr1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot was also enough for Europe to crown her Cartier Sprinter of the Year. Some thought the award should go to another Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale graduate in Ortensia who won the Gr1 Nunthorpe Stakes and Gr2 King George Stakes plus finished fourth in the Gr1 July Cup all in England following a dashing win in the Gr1 Al Quoz Sprint in Dubai. That s two international sprinting mares to balance the international sprinting males Starspangledbanner and Sacred Kingdom who are also graduates of Melbourne Premier.

The Cup runner-up Fiorente arrived on here just in time for the big race his first in Australia even though he was trained by Gai Waterhouse and the Irish-bred third place-getter Jakkalberry raced mainly in Italy before taking up residence in the UK stable of his Italian trainer. He has now raced on five continents. While this is only a small snapshot it s a true indication of the trend developing due to a lack of staying stocks in this country. It can be argued that this is brought about by the lack of incentive and support for breeders to produce those types. But maybe shipping in expensive horses from Europe is not the answer especially when many are geldings who contribute nothing to the local breeding industry in the long term. The likes of Australian trainers and owners going to Europe and the USA to buy tried staying horses for our middle distance and cup races has its limitations it s an expensive exercise and as with any racehorse the rate of failure is high. The major bloodstock sales in this country Inglis Melbourne director Peter Heagney AGAINST he 2013 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale has catalogued a Blue Riband session for the first time predominantly identifying potential staying or classic types. Merisa Borg finds out why. When the Melbourne Cup rolled around last November the sentiment held by many Australians was that there were too many international raiders in the cup. There s a growing argument about the limitations placed on locally-bred horses to even get a sniff at the qualifying races with the influx of the overseas company let alone a tilt at the big race itself. Also thrown around is the question of the relevance of the race that stops the nation when punters don t have any local heroes that they can connect with and the card reads with a long list of unknowns. The 2012 instalment of the Melbourne Cup is a prime example of this where you had eight international runners and 16 from the stables of Australian trainers who were for the most part purchased by the local contingent from overseas. The winner Green Moon was a 3-time winner in Great Britain before gracing our We are blessed in this country to have access to the best international staying bloodlines around... Peter Heagney have gained international recognition as an enviable source of precocious youngsters for the 2YO market and the breeders in turn have responded to the demand. Take for example Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale which has unearthed champion sprinter milers like Black Caviar Starspangledbanner Sacred Kingdom and Weekend Hussler. The support for breeders of staying horses and the popularity of stallions who throw those types has dwindled. Inglis director Peter Heagney confirmed There is no question that Australia is a leading producer of world-class sprinter milers and this precocity predominantly comes from our colonial lines. However with access to leading international pedigrees and the top imported sires there is no reason we can t also produce the world s best middle distance performers and stayers. Our industry prides itself on the ability to produce speedy 2YOs and the promise of a quick return for the buyer. But when you have some 600 races over 2000m on the race calendar you need to fill the gap from somewhere With all this in mind it seems fitting Inglis has taken the step of introducing a Blue Riband session in its Melbourne Premier Sale. Having already proved a good source of exceptional middle distance and staying horses including Pinker Pinker Fields Of Omagh Littorio Hollow Bullet and Arapaho Miss plus South African Horse of the Year Igugu Heagney says Inglis saw an opportunity to build on this 42 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM INGLIS CLASSIC YEARLING INGLIS PREMIER SALE SALE SUMMER BOOK 20 21 JAN 2013 MARCH 3 - 6 announcing a special session dedicated to yearlings that were likely standouts to perform at both middle distance and staying races. We selected these yearlings from the nominations for their pedigree and conformation which suggests they will excel over a classic or Cup distance. It s an initiative that has garnered a lot of support from vendors and breeders alike with Heagne revealing breeders of these selected yearlings were invited to include their horse in the Blue Riband session and the initiative was very well received. It s sure to whet the appetite of local trainers and international buyers vying for a piece of Cup history. The initiative is also in response to our expanding international market and with demand for Australian bloodstock growing there is a need to have a supply of classic and staying horses. Heagney says Many of the top races in South Africa and Hong Kong are 1600m to 2000m races so there is a market for this type of horse both locally and on the international front. The 2013 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale kicks off on Sunday 3rd March at Oaklands and will play host to a four-day showcase of prime bloodstock culminating on Wednesday 6th March. With 588 lots to get through in the Premier Session 1 alone the Inglis team will be run off their feet with the overall sale set to see 775 yearlings go under the hammer to a bevy of local and international buyers. But particularly given its novelty factor all eyes could well be on the Blue Riband yearlings who will enter the ring come Monday afternoon. The Blue Riband session will get underway with Lot 171 and there will be 50 lots with potential staying qualities on offer. The final lot of this special session will be Lot 220 and by then 21 fillies and 29 colts will have paraded through the ring to an expectant buying bench. There s a strong selection of 24 highly credentialed sires represented in the session including yearlings by Australian-bred Redoute s Choice Encosta de Lago Fastnet Rock Al Maher Choisir Reset and Stratum. New Zealand s Waikato Stud stallion s Savabeel and Pins are also in the mix. The Gr1 Cox Plate champion Savabeel has already left three Australian Gr1 Classic winners in Victorian Derby winner Sangster plus Scarlett Lady and Brambles. another superb distance performer. From across the Tasman Don Eduardo an AJC Derby winner by Zabeel is already a proven sire of sprinters and stayers at Group level including dual Gr1-winner Booming. Arrowfield Stud s Starcraft has six yearlings catalogued for this session while his home has just one home-grown offering a colt out of Danehill mare Lady Danette. She s a producer of eight winners and the colt is a half-sibling to three stakes-winners including Just a Kiseki and Mr Trickster both winners at distances above 2000m. There s another Starcraft that looks an interesting type on pedigree Lot 177 is out of a daughter of dual Oaks-winning Zabeel mare Zacheline. On the US front there are yearlings by Henrythenavigator Big Brown Bernardini Hard Spun and Good Journey. Good Journey was placed in the Breeders Cup Mile and has left four stakes-winners so far including Gr1 WATC Derby winner Grand Journey and 2012 Gr1 Emirates Stakes winner Happy Trails. He stands at Cornerstone Stud one of Australia s highest profile properties and the Sam Hayesowned farm has consigned a colt and a filly from his crop. The filly is out of South Africanbred champion stayer Almah who is a sister to Gr3 Turffontein Caradoc Gold Cup winner Zambomba and a half-sister to stakes-winner Zambucca and Zamburak both winners over 2000m. Henrythenavigator who has already sired a Breeders Cup juvenile winner is the sire of a colt in Lot 187 a half-brother to Gr2-winner Delzao who was Gr1-placed in both the VRC Australian Cup and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. We are blessed in this country to have access to the best international staying bloodlines around with imported sires standing The growing list of staying type stallions available to breeders in this country and support for a commercial market will no doubt replenish [staying] stocks... It s good to see our top Aussie sires like Redoute s Choice Fastnet Rock and Encosta de Lago who predominantly leave sprinters consistently have progeny succeed over 2000m at the highest level. In this session Fastnet Rock has a colt at Lot 188 from dual Gr1-winner Arborea who has produced a string of winners including Gr2-winner Delta Form.

Victorianbased Three Bridges Thoroughbreds are already on board with five yearlings while there are three a piece for Swettenham Stud Supreme Thoroughbreds and Phoenix Park. Even the Kiwis are in on the act with the New Zealand contingent headed up by four yearlings from Esker Lodge and one consigned by Cambridge-based Ascot Farm. There s also a pair for Yallambee Stud Woodnook Farm Musk Creek Farm and Basinghall Farm as well as single entries from NSW Victoria and South Australian studs. The NSW entries include Arrowfield Stud Goodwood Farm Bellerive Stud Fairhill Farm Bell View Park Stud Kia Ora Stud and Rothwell Park. Victoria has representation via Burnewang North Pastoral Eliza Park Grange Thoroughbreds Rangal Park Stud and Rosemount Stud while the South Australian contingent includes Mill Park and Rubiton Bloodstock. Heagney says The last few years at Cup time has highlighted that we are not breeding as many stayers so we saw an opportunity to promote this type of horse and we wanted to show support for the breeders who are bringing these stallions into Australia and give breeders confidence that we will market those horse in our sale. The Blue Riband supports the breeders of middle distance and staying types but also buyers of those horses with discussions with race clubs underway to increase the number of 1600m to 2400m events in the 5 million Inglis Race Series. Out of the 50 yearlings reserved for the Blue Riband line up surely there s a serious Melbourne or Caulfield Cup performer in their midst and while the Blue Riband session isn t a cure for the shortage of staying prospects in this country it is certainly a step in the right direction. Last but not least although covered indepth elsewhere in this edition the bold decision by Swettenham Stud to stand Melbourne Cup hero Americain a stallion sure to be well supported given his marvellous qualities is another indication that perhaps the anti-staying pendulum had swung too far. What we might be witnessing is the start of a slow-build resurgent demand for horses that will get a trip allowing future Australia-breds to take their place on the world stage over distances beyond just the sprints for which they are renowned. Monaco Consul typifies High Chaparral s stock here who have won the Arc the Derbies and the 2000 Guineas Heagney points out. Buyers will be spoilt for choice in this session which will showcase a myriad of Europeanbred sires with progeny by Pentire Authorized New Approach Mastercraftsman Street Cry and Rock of Gibraltar. Never unplaced in 11 starts 5-time Gr1-winner New Approach s first Australian crop are 2YOs this season and he has five youngsters in this session. His first northern hemisphere crop has left dual Gr1-winning colt Dawn Approach who is unbeaten in six starts as a 2YO so his offspring are an exciting prospect. Goodwood Farm s got the only representative of NZ-based Mastercraftsmen who was a Champion 2YO colt in Europe and whose yearlings at the recently completed New Zealand National Yearling Sale were in very high demand. Street Cry is another sire who has delivered superb form as a sire of stayers with the likes of Breeders Cup Classic winner Zenyatta Melbourne Cup winner Shocking Whobegotyou and Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense. It s hard to go past High Chaparral as the definitive staying sire. From his first crop alone he sired four Gr1-winners including 8-time Gr1-winner So You Think. Who could forget his trifecta in the Australian Derby the sire of all three place-getters in Shoot Out Descarado and Monaco Consul. Shoot Out was also a winner of the Gr1 Randwick Guineas Monaco Consul We saw an opportunity to promote this type of horse and we wanted to show support for the breeders who are bringing these stallions into Australia... Peter Heagney the Victoria Derby and Descarado the Caulfield Cup. Coolmore s prized stallion is the most represented in the session with nine yearlings set to tempt buyers. Lot 181 is a colt from a halfsister to Champion NZ stayer Zabeat another is a half-brother to Gr1-winner Rock Kingdom and Lot 220 is a filly from prolific producer Push a Venture a half-sister to the dam of Rock of Gibraltar. Coolmore Stud will be selling under its own banner for the first time at Premier and they also are the most represented vendor with seven yearlings in the Blue Riband session. The growing list of staying type stallions available to breeders in this country and support for a commercial market will no doubt replenish the stocks of middle distance and classic horses in Australia.
