But even the most talented vignerons are sometimes forced to make do with challenging years where crops are wiped out by frost rains at harvest time or less than ideal conditions exist for ripening. In some ways it s the same with thoroughbreds. ere are years where your best mare won t go in-foal she slips her foal the foal is born with shocking legs or something happens to it a few months a er birth. It might also turn out to be a wobbler a weaver a roarer or leave you questioning how your glorious mare and that foal s star sire could possibly produce something quite so boofheaded or with a parrot mouth akin to a McCaw s. en there are the yearlings you keep that can t run out of sight on a dark night while the ones you let slide as cheapies to secure much-needed turnover go undefeated 5 in-a-row and start hot-pot in a feature race. ose outcomes like a corked 300 bottle of boutique wine are whimsical occurrences from the Murphy s Law library of things that can go wrong. But not everything in this industry falls into that capricious category. If we ponder 2012 s Spring it s clear some things could have been avoided perhaps not altogether or in any event handled di erently. What s done is done and enough s been written so it s possibly best at this stage to simply adopt the approach of least said soonest mended . And so we cast an eye towards 2013 where both Black Caviar and Hay List might terrorise the sprinting ranks again or not For if there is one certainty in racing it s that the next thoroughbred star lies just over the horizon whether it s a gawkish yearling an up-and-coming 3-year-old or a late maturing type for whom the penny nally drops. Whichever one it is may it be yours. Merry Xmas and Happy New Year.

AND DON T LOSE THE ONES YOU ALREADY HAVE. Racing has to retain its customer base and nd new people if it is to survive. And with the recent awful press the sport has been generating that just may be a battle. But despite everything a day at the track is I reckon still a wonderful experience. And it seems to many newcomers a pleasant surprise. Many race clubs have spent and are spending millions of dollars on capital improvements. For what Why spend the money Why all the renovations On track business except for a few carnival days continues to decline. Sometimes at alarming rates. A lot of tracks are spi er than ever for fewer people. Maybe simple teletheatres would do. I hope not. No matter how much money is spent on facilities or marketing the sport will implode without strong integrity processes in place. If corruption is le unchecked or insu cient attention is given to integrity matters any business will go into decline. Tolerance of misconduct empathy ignoring warnings or an inability to respond QUICKLY to negative behavior creates an environment that allows acts to continue from minor o ences to more serious forms of rule breaching. Racing through the Spring has as is always the case been in the headlines but this year o en for the wrong reasons. Many of the stories we have seen have no doubt created widespread dismay among people who have not truly understood the whole story. Please keep in mind not everyone involved in racing is a crook and not every good thing beaten was dead . Recently a friend of mine was called for jury duty. He was being interviewed or whatever it is called as a prospective juror for a murder trial. I thought a rather important issue. He was not selected. However the circumstances hammered home to him and to me were the basis of the Australian legal system. e trial judge pointed to the defendant and informed the room full of prospective jurors the defendant was innocent and would remain so until he was proved to be guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. e judge said if a verdict was rendered at that time the defendant would have to be found to be innocent by the jury because there was no evidence of his guilt and the burden of proof was on the prosecution. is is something we should never forget. e burden to prove somebody is guilty of an o ence under the Rules of Racing lies with the Racing Stewards and it never never shi s from them. It seems to me if innocent until proven guilty T is good enough for (suspected) murderers it should be good enough for people who are licensed to participate in horse racing. Even when chasing crooks fundamental rights have to be safeguarded. We must always remind ourselves if corruption is evident at any level of racing it could have at least the following impact 1 Loss of public trust 2 Loss of respect for the sport 3 Loss of co-operation 4 Loss of revenue 5 Loss of jobs And as we have seen recently if there is a perception of corrupt or unethical practices negative media coverage ourishes. In addition there is always the possibility of involvement by external agencies. Many involved with such agencies would not know a horse unless it had a milk cart attached to it. e temptation to cheat is great for some. But always remember that when a person agrees to take out a licence with a racing body they agree to be bound by the Rules of Racing. ey have to attend inquiries when directed to so and whilst there must answer questions. It was only in 1948 that the Court of Appeal in the United Kingdom held that the Jockey Club had an unfettered discretion to cancel a trainer s or jockey s licence without holding an inquiry. Of course this is now not the law. We all have an inalienable right to work. But at a Racing Stewards inquiry answering questions is compulsory. ere is no privilege against self incrimination. Licensed people must always remember this and if they don t like it then don t accept the licence. Racing is founded on its participants telling the truth. Obviously this does not always happen. O en there is evidence to show the untruthful witness should not be believed. Let us look at the current model aimed at protecting integrity within racing. One could say the primary focus is enforcement of the Rules. Under the Rules powers are given to Racing Stewards and such powers allow them to act as investigators prosecutors juries and judges and so issue penalties for violations of the rules. is system has been in place for a long time and is somewhat similar in most parts of the racing world. e system we have is arguably quite successful when enforcing breaches which occur on track.

Calls for racing to be run on a national level are unlikely to occur as the funding models in the eight di erent States and territories make this near impossible for change to happen. erefore it is the role of the ARB to provide governance for the whole industry rather than administer the process and income of racing. e real strength of the ARB is in the uniform national rules of racing. B&R So the ARB sets the rules and the States run racing. It must be a juggling act to balance all the various in uences. McGauran e Board is made up of two seats from each State and territories Principle Racing Authorities (PRA) so there is good buy-in from each jurisdiction and there is a solid process for change that requires input from the various committees through to State level and nal approval by the Board. I see the key task of my position as ensuring these processes are improved in e ciency by improving the communication streams as required. e ARB has great technical skill through its standing committees on integrity horse welfare race date planning jockey safety and handicapping and there is great potential for harmonization of rules so as to reduce duplication and cost to the bene t of participants. B&R You speak about the strength in the Rules of Racing. How does that align on an international scale McGauran ere is much work occurring around the globe to attain more harmony in the Rules of Racing in di erent nations. For example the Asian Pattern Committee sets out the list of races that are eligible for black-type and there is ongoing work to ensure that the quality of blacktype between the di erent racing nations is standardized across the region. A Gr1 anywhere should mean the same thing. is means that some nations will have a higher percentage of stakes-races compared to all races but the quality of those stakes-races should be the deciding factor not the relative number of them. Australia plays a huge role on the international stage particularly in the exporting of skills around the world. Most obviously it is the horses trainers and jockeys that are succeeding around the world such as Brett Prebble and John Size in Hong Kong Peter McGauran the new CEO of the Australian Racing Board brings experience and enthusiasm to the figurehead position. reviously chief executive of oroughbred Breeders Australia and Aushorse Peter McGauran also spent a brief period at Racing NSW as Director of Strategy Marketing and Public A airs. Prior to his direct involvement in racing administration McGauran spent 25 years as the Minister for Gippsland with signi cant time spent in Cabinet. e political skills learnt combined with his legal degree give McGauran a wealth of experience and bring political acumen to a position that requires a balance of racing knowledge as well as an ability to e ectively mediate between a multitude of interests. He spoke to Breeding&Racing about his role and the future of the Australian industry. B&R What is the role of the Australian Racing Board McGauran Many people see the ARB as a seen and not heard organisation and to some extent this is based on the historical position where the States run the day-today business of racing. In a fashion it is a hangover from the founding fathers where all industries in Australia are run on a State level and in racing this is largely compounded P 12 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM Carnival racing is well promoted] There is much work occurring around the globe to attain more harmony in the Rules of Racing in different nations... Peter McGauran and Michael Freedman and Steve Burridge in Singapore to name just a couple. Less obviously and yet perhaps more importantly it is the administrative skills that Australia has exported that will have a long-term in uence on racing globally. Many of the Asian racing nations employ stewards that started their careers in Australia and racing administrators such as Paul Bittar CEO of British Horseracing Authority and Jamie Stier BHA s Head of Racing Operations will ultimately strengthen ties between racing jurisdictions in an increasingly global racing environment. B&R Surely it s not just about rules and regulations What other roles does the ARB provide for the industry McGauran e ARB provides a national voice for racing and is the public face on issues such as integrity and welfare. e ARB is an active participant within the Asian Racing Federation and the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities so that Australia as the second largest industry in the world has its voice heard on technical issues and the commercialization and marketing of racing on an international scale. We undertake research and development on horse injury and illnesses with the results published and circulated widely. Furthermore the ARB has jockey health and safety as a priority with ve years of research into a safer jockey helmet about to come to fruition and a 12-month study on jockey vests has now commenced. is organisation is also a good forum for the State jurisdictions to discuss ideas to work together on issues that cross State lines and to achieve consensus for the bene t of the national industry. B&R What do you see is the biggest issue facing the industry at the moment McGauran Integrity and in particular the need for scienti c analysis and detection of prohibited substances. I include horse welfare in the de nition of integrity. ere have been vast developments in biochemistry and many substances are available over the internet to trainers and veterinarians. In order to maintain a level playing eld the industry is making an enormous investment to keep pace with these developments. As seen in human athletes it will be a never ending battle but one that is a worthwhile ght to keep racing fair for all participants. e jockey betting issues in Victoria will grow like a cancer in our sport if not stamped out and RVL stewards are doing a great job in combating this wrongdoing within the constraints of the law of the land. Stewards do not have the same powers as the police and have to tread carefully through a legal mine eld every time they undertake a complex or large scale enquiry. Racing is looking afresh at the adequacy of the powers available to it and there may well be approaches to Sate Governments to strengthen the ability of stewards to obtain convictions against o enders who hide behind legal technicalities. B&R You ve been involved in the racing industry in Australia in various roles for some time now. What excites you about the future of racing here McGauran e joy in the faces of young people attending the races. Our clubs do a wonderful job of promoting the big carnivals and in creating an atmosphere that encourages participation. e challenge for racing as a whole is to get more commitment from these new people throughout the year and into long-term participation in the wider industry. It gives me great hope for the future of racing.

European correspondent John Gilmore reports. 14 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM F ollowing a long period of decline Belgium s racing has recently been o ered a lifeline to reverse the trend courtesy of their French racing neighbour s agreement with the Belgium Jockey Club. e agreement includes organising a number of race meetings annually in the country with linked pool betting to the French pari-mutuel pools. In the past 25 years ve of the 10 racecourses shut down as betting revenue on Belgian horseracing diminished resulting in lower prize money the inevitable knock-on e ect of less owners fewer horses in training and the deterioration of the breeding industry. is year the French P.M.U. signed 4 agreements with betting operators in Belgium that will allow Belgian punters to make daily bets placed on French races into the common pool of the P.M.U. covering 80 percent of the betting market. A percentage of the turnover will be deducted to fund both French and Belgium racing. is agreement was signed by Ladbrokes in April 2012 and P.M.U. Belge WFA and Euro Tierc in September. Ladbrokes which has been in Belgium since 1984 is the country s leading bookmaker with an annual turnover of around 170 million euros. e new service has been operational for the past eight months in its 300 betting outlets Belgium backed up by live TV than coverage of French racing under a contract with the French Equida Racing Television service. Of the other three operators the P.M.U. with 400 outlets expects to have the service up and running by January 2013. It enables punters to play all the pool bets also including the daily Quint plus race where one has to pick either the rst three four or ve in the correct order and which o ers a daily jackpot of more than 1 million euros for the rst ve home. is all became possible in 2010 a er new legislation in Belgium for the rst time allowed betting in that country to be transferred to a common pool of a foreign country. is involved scal action from the regional authorities in Belgium and the P.M.U. model based on support of the local racing industries. It ensured a nancial return for Belgium racecourses via the Belgium Racing Federation. Meanwhile a percentage return to Belgium s racing from all betting placed on horseracing no matter where the meeting is held in Belgium was legally imposed by legislation. is followed on from last year s collaboration with France Galop and Mons-Ghlin racecourse located 33 miles southwest of Brussels and which o ers both at and of more than 5 000 spectators attended every day with 8 000 the top proving that the negative spiral has stopped and Belgium horseracing is not dead reveals De Bruyne. Waregem jump racecourse Manager Jan Van Den Broacke helped get Ostend up and running again. I was involved in keeping the racecourse alive before renovation so that all the contracts could be signed and the renovation take place. Ostend has one of the best locations you could imagine a er stepping out of the racecourse you almost walk on the beach. e restoration was partly funded by Belgium s regional Flemish government and this year s mix of racing and entertainment got of to a ying start and was a good cocktail to attract the public and sponsors. Even if the on-course turnover was okay there is still a need for sponsorship. Van Den Broake still considers a lot of work will have to be done to put Belgium racing on a positive footing. It s good that money is coming back to Belgium Racing it will have to be spent mainly on better prize money to keep owners investing in horses because this has become a critical matter. It s expected that around 1.5m euros will be Belgium s racing is on the improve received to fund Belgium racing from betting on foreign racing alone in racing is now looking a lot healthier Belgium this year. is is to be divided between even three or four years ago... trotting and at racing.

Prior to the recent changes in Belgium regulations this betting was not subject to any funding from turnover for Belgium or French racing and betting operators in Belgium paid out the French quoted pari-mutuel dividends for winners even though it was not linked to the French common pool. Having a common language the French Paris Turf racing daily paper is sold throughout Belgium and live televised coverage of French racing is shown in Belgium Betting shops and can be picked up at home on the French racing channel. Joere Impens P.M.U. Belge Manager says Belgium s twice a week race meetings in their 400 outlets represented between 5-10 percent of turnover with the rest split 50 50 between French racing and other sports betting. e Belgium Lottery has had a damaging e ect on racehorse turnover for a long time without any contributing compensation from lottery pro ts which the racing industry had wished. In addition high state tax deductions over the years of up to 15 percent on betting turnover (depending on the region) was another negative factor but certain changes are imminent. ese include actions that are being taken by the Jockey Club to try and have a decree voted in that will x details for the imposed return to the sector. Jan Van Den Broacke Manager of Waregem racecourse which holds a successful one day a year International festival jump race meeting with races of 50 000 euros prize money is an example of what can be achieved. e Waregem Koerse in the Flanders region of Belgium is like a festival meeting and run like an event. e event was never dependent on o course betting and was organised with people from outside the racing industry. Sponsorship is the main source of income and it attracts a lot of French jumping horses . He is quite critical of the way things have turned out for the Belgium racing industry. ere has been mismanagement all the way. At the end of the 80s the Belgium P.M.U. was at its top. e problem at that time was that the board of Directors was made up from the President of the racecourses old aristocrats or older people without any management experience. Prize money became too high for the income of the P.M.U. but some of the Directors had horses in training and a race xing scam in the trotting races was very badly approached. Ladbrokes was always above this trying to pick up the corpse and never had any interest in Belgium racing. For Ladbrokes only the French betting market was their goal. No doubt as eluded to earlier the Lottery was a signi cant factor in Belgium Racing s revenue slump in the 10 years up to 1996 for which it has never recovered up till this year. e Belgium P.M.U. o -course and on-course tote fell by a third between 1986-1996 to 48m euros while lottery turnover shot up by 60p percent to 840m euros. As a result Belgium racing saw the rst cut in the number of meetings to the annual program which sadly continued with the loss of racetracks. But the section that has paid heavily for Belgium racings decline are those working within the industry as the number of meetings fell and the knock on e ect for breeding thoroughbreds. For Trotting I don t have the numbers but for at races currently 50 percent of the Belgian-based horses are trained by their owners reveals De Bruyne. At present a few die-hards survive as professional trainers. at number has not signi cantly declined in the last 10 years because the crisis started long before. Practically no jump horses are trained in Belgium. Waregem Koerse the one and only jump event in Belgium is mostly for Frenchtrained horses. is season just 411 horses were registered in Belgium to run in at races by the Belgium Jockey Club and understandably trainer and jockey numbers have slumped. e new legal framework and management approach for racing in Belgium gives some hope for the industry but it will be di cult to get more owners interested in buying quality racehorses - unless prize money signi cantly rises. Even though some owners are buying French horses with the goal of racing them in France for lucrative prizemoney at race prize money has slowly increased in the past two years thanks to the French involvement in supporting races at the Mons track. In 2011 average prize money was 5 252 euros for 127 races- compared to 1 843 euros in 2002 from 420 races. e better prize money on o er has seen 20 percent of runners coming from Holland and Germany and 20 percent from France. ere is clearly still a lot of work to be done but Belgium racing is now looking a lot healthier than even three or four years ago with better nancial regulations to help the industry from racehorse betting turnover in the country as well as the French agreement.

BIG A The horse with the Big A or ability is what all trainers seek writes Ross Brunt of Horsegears. he Big A is a natural talent to run and without it a racehorse s potential will always be limited. e Big A is inherited and a highly valued and elusive trait as the horse either has it or does not. e willingness of a racehorse to compete is also paramount to success. Although this can be inherited generally this is in uenced by a horse s environmental or life experience. Inherited and environmental traits combine to determine each horse s real potential. However having outstanding individual traits may not be enough. A horse s realised success also depends on an ability or intelligence to use and coordinate its skills into an instinctive e cient and fast gallop under racing conditions. is is not a general intelligence but an athletic inner racing intelligence . is includes subconscious and learned skills such as powering muscles heart action lungs exhaling and inhaling posture and balance hoof placement propelling and stretching limbs forward and during races taking gaps and racing clear from the safety of the pack etc. When the racehorse successfully uses and coordinates these skills as one its potential translates into performance. Emphasizing the importance and wide ranging implications of racing intelligence e champion or horse in a purple patch of form typically displays optimal racing intelligence. Fast from the gates travels with ease takes runs between horses accelerates when asked for an e ort and runs truly to the line. An ability and willingness to execute a range of skills. Handling a wet track may also partly be due to an inner physical ability such as e ciently concentrating a small number THE HORSE WITH THE T is is generally made up of subconscious skills. Critical to this is the nervous system. e nervous system transmits signals between individual part traits of the body and coordinated actions. is includes muscle contraction energy system function suspension action rhythm e ciency etc. One of the largely subconscious individual traits that may be responsible for both the oroughbred being a noted jumper and the Big A is tendon sti ness . is ensures that the athletic tendon works as a powerful spring and during strong movements has the strength or intelligence to hold form and rebound hard. is is largely inherited and particularly o the hind limbs provides raw galloping power. Consequently this indicates both correlation between jumping and galloping ability and as the athletic tendon is intelligently powerful why many fast ones break down. Generally natural skills allow for fast improvement quick recovery and high topend potential. e young horse that adapts and learns quickly is obviously showing a degree of subconscious racing intelligence. Other signs include In the paddock loves to lead others twist turn and gallop Displays a light owing rhythmic movement and an extended stride Free jumping ability scope and zest Natural tness and clean wind The Big A of muscle bres on superior balance and stability leaving the bulk to produce raw power and galloping speed. Alternatively environmentally the horse that has a bad experience on a wet track may lose con dence and su er lowered racing intelligence on the surface. Learnt skills eventually mould into the horse s inner racing intelligence... is is similar to the human who is naturally athletic and appears to play sport uently and instinctively without thought or e ort. Skills learnt consciously add to a horse s racing intelligence. ese develop over time during its upbringing and education and o en relate to attitude and a willingness to please the rider. e horse that genuinely lacks the inherited Big A will never show outstanding ability and fast work will always be an essential to racing. However particularly for the lean awkward type of horse varied training methods can add racing intelligence by quickly improving its coordination and strength. ese are common knowledge and include Keeping the horse happy. At the top of the list and a Bart Cummings training key. e happy horse will learn and recover quicker perform as its rider wishes bene t more from good hormones and adrenaline and try harder Education. Provides knowledge of what a rider expects and adds to both the horse and jockey s con dence to execute Upbringing. Being raised with a large herd and ample galloping space increases spatial awareness.

Adds racing keenness By improving movement strength and setting a positive attitude a range of skills are optimised including both the learnt and subconscious.

Learning these skills early gives the horse every opportunity to show its best while still young fresh and sound. is is signi cant as nding as little as a length considerably adds to a good racehorse s prizemoney. Learnt skills eventually mould into the horse s inner racing intelligence. e horse that is consistently ridden in the same way also learns and knows what is expected. It does not over-think during races rather it follows the preset pattern. e horse with racing intelligence presents its jockey options during the run. Black Caviar s con dence lets her settle early then ease wide and lengthen stride to the line. Previously Makybe Diva s con dence led her to weave through the eld and saved her lengths in each of her Melbourne Cup wins. Anything that takes away a horse s focus from following its jockey s cues and running fast generally lowers its racing intelligence. inking rather than doing is a negative. is is why aids like blinkers and winkers work they focus the horse on galloping forward and eliminate thinking and negative thoughts. Injury pain can be obscure and alone can cause the horse to adjust its preferred action. Less adrenaline ow in older horses may also be a factor. During work this results in niggles becoming painful and during and particularly late in a race further pain. Further once a horse su ers a serious injury the repair process of adding strengthening and slowing is a natural safety body reaction. is healing process is designed to protect the horse from a repeat injury rather than return it to its more risk-oriented original tendon sti ness and top speed. Pain and injuries can result in a lack of con dence to stretch out. Lost skills through age attitude or injury not only restrict improvement but lessen ability across a range of seemingly unrelated skills like a uent gallop and in coordinating a genuine racing intelligence. An example is the leading horse with elite skills that loses top-end speed with age. It now requires a greater e ort to keep pace which stains the horse. is is ampli ed as the horse tires late. Losing racing intelligence is a ects balance and con dence and reduces E ective acceleration having a lower topend speed to accelerate too Tactical speed and the ability to take gaps Cruising threshold speed Endurance in high pace pressure races Although a standard racing pattern helps the racehorse learn there are exceptions. A change of tactics can also shock the older stale horse into performing and a good example is Octagonal. e dour stallion had won only one of his previous eight races but in the 1997 Chipping Norton Stakes Shane Dye pulled the whip and went quickly from last to a clear lead 700m out and the awoken champion went on to win not only this race but in succession the Gr1 Australia Cup and Mercedes Classic. Layered education When education is carefully layered step by step it sets a positive pattern. When development is rushed a lack of knowledge and or con dence leads to a lowered racing intelligence. Phases of horse learning 1. Not sure what is expected appears tense and awkward 2. Building con dence increasing coordination and learning what s right 3. Performing a task while staying relaxed 4. Performing a series of tasks automatically without over-thinking or trying too hard FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM 19 Reset is doing a great job FINDING YEARLINGS TO By Jane Henning GO THE DISTANCE H aving recently experienced the 2012 Melbourne Spring Carnival culminating in the 3200 metre Emirates Melbourne Cup it s natural that the thoughts of owners and trainers are turning to breeding or buying staying bred horses. While the tactic du jour is to import readymade stayers the international market has twigged to our desperation and the price of this commodity is steadily rising. Australia s breeding industry has happily trotted alongside New Zealand s in the past allowing and probably encouraging the Kiwis to produce solid stayers while we specialised in sparkling sprinters. It seems that New Zealand has tired of the tag of stayer specialists in recent years and has imported sprinting stallions from both Australia and the Northern Hemisphere seemingly in an e ort to shake o the tag. Align Captain Rio Keeper and orn Park come to mind. Australian buyers have largely been guilty of ignoring stamina-bred yearlings over the years to the point where breeders were nervous about the prospects of standing a stallion of this type. Auction houses similarly have preferred to o er what the buyers demand and have further emphasised this position by dangling huge rewards in front of the owners of early two-year-old winners. Of course there has always been big stakes money available for the winners of middle and long distance races here it s just that buyers have seemed unable to imagine that wait from yearling to (perhaps) three-year-old without breaking into a sweat and therefore breeders have fallen into line. A shi in thinking a change in the tide there is a perceivable buyer maturity emerging over the past couple of seasons. Commercial studs are overtly putting up the shingles of stamina-bred stallions and it seems to a good reception. Darley has a diverse line-up which includes New Approach and Authorized both English Derby (2400m) winners. Darley stalwart Reset has produced VRC Derby winner and Champion Australasian 3YO Stayer Rebel Raider as well as Cox Plate winner Pinker Pinker. Coolmore has English The female side of the pedigree is equally important in contributing distance characteristics... Derby winner High Chaparral as a star on its Australian roster and this year has introduced his Champion Middle Distance winning son So You ink. High Chaparral served 235 mares in 2010 and 187 last year said Coolmore s Sebastian Hutch. He and So You ink will serve well over 300 mares between them this season. Duke Of Marmalade and Dylan omas are other Gr1 winners over 2400m on the Coolmore roster. So are we starting to grow up Maybe. While the very large studs can a ord to stand the full spectrum of distance speci c stallions at least the quality and range of staying-bred 20 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM stallions has improved in the past few seasons and the smaller studs will hopefully follow suit. If you want to buy or breed a stayer there are a few ways of maximising the chances of ensuring the horse you choose will still be breathing easy at the 2200 metre mark. Choosing the progeny of proven stayerproducers is the obvious point. Progeny out of mares which also display a stamina-biased background is also very important the dam having as much say in the outcome as the stallion. While it doesn t necessarily follow stallions who themselves performed over the longer distances should be on the longlist. An experienced eye can whittle down the list of suitably bred yearlings by identifying potential stayers on type. ere have been many articles written on this subject (including in this publication) so I won t go into this in detail here. Like human athletes however those built for long distance running have more slow-twitch muscle bres and generally present as leaner and lighter muscled longer framed types with plenty of heart and lung room. A phlegmatic temperament is also a feature ensuring that they have the ability to relax and conserve energy. You can o en tell when looking at the eld in the enclosure whether the race is for sprinters or stayers. e sprinters are much more likely to be on their toes their compact muscular bodies sweating up while the stayers will o en dri around the mounting yard unfazed their lengthy frames cool as a cat. Some studs are taking the guesswork out of what distance their new stallions will throw by having them genetically tested amongst them leading Australian farms Widden and Swettenham. Equine genetic research has come along in leaps and bounds in the last decade. We started DNA testing foals for parentage early in the new millennium and in 2007 the horse genome sequence was completed. Since then Dr. Emmeline Hill a leading young Irish scientist headed one of the world s rst academic research programmes dedicated to understanding genetic contributions to equine athletic performance. Her team s discovery of the Speed Gene led to the formation of a company named Equinome in 2009. Using DNA samples from 179 elite racehorses they were able to extrapolate their laboratory ndings to predict best race distance for an individual. In collaboration with leading Irish trainer Jim Bolger DNA was also taken from 142 two-year-olds (via a simple blood test) in training to test the integrity of the process. Such is the growing popularity of such information that Equinome is soon to open an o ce in Australia. In a gene responsible for muscle mass development a speci c position in the genetic code can contain either the letters C or T . Table 1 Individual Winners of Staying Stakes Races (2200m ) in Australia 2011-12 Table 2 Individual Winners of Staying Stakes Races (2200m ) in Australia 2011-12 As each individual inherits a copy from both sire and dam there are three possible combinations C C horses excel at sprints and are best suited to races up to 1600 metres with an average best distance of 1300m. C T horses have a mixture of speed and stamina and are the most versatile. A C T horse can perform well as a two-year-old but is best suited to races between 1400 and 2400m. T T horses are later maturing and do not perform optimally as a juvenile. On average T T horses earn up to 20 times less as twoyear-olds than C T horses of similar pedigree. Winners of the Irish Oaks Derby St. Leger and the Melbourne Cup have been identi ed as T T. Not only is this test useful for stallion owners so that they know how their stallions will work but foals and or yearlings tested give trainers and owners the information which allows the animal to be trained for distances appropriate for their inherent abilities. While none of Widden s or Swettenham s stallions are T T as testing becomes more widespread no doubt T T identi ed stallions will emerge. In response to the growing demand to own a stayer auction house Inglis has come up with an initiative which will debut at the 2013 Melbourne Premier sale. ey are incorporating a Blue Riband sector into Session 1 which will o er yearlings that have been bred to excel over middle and staying distances. In keeping with the high standard at this sale the pedigrees of the 49 selected lots are not only stamina based but commercial. We have yearlings by High Chaparral Shamardal Pentire Big Brown Street Cry Encosta De Lago Redoute s Choice and Street Cry amongst others said director Peter Heagney. We even have one by Choisir It s not always the sire line that we have identi ed we have also considered the progeny of stamina bred mares in making our selections. According to Racing Victoria the de nition of a staying race is that which is 2200 metres or over so using that as our starting point we ve looked at the 2011-12 Australian racing season to ascertain from where our best stayers have been emanating. ere were sixty individual winners of stakes-races held over 2200 metres and upwards and you may be surprised to know that only eight (13%) of those were Northern Hemisphere-bred horses. ey were by eight di erent sires (see Table 1.) Interestingly twelve individuals were by nine New Zealand-based stallions and the remaining forty were Australian-breds by 29 di erent sires. Of course the bloodlines of our racehorses are largely global these days so it is perhaps more relevant to look at the actual sire lines from which these stayers are emanating (see Table 2) FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM 21 FINDING YEARLINGS TO GO THE DISTANCE (CONTINUED) Table 3 Individual Winners of Staying Stakes Races (2200m ) in Australia 2011-12 Table 4 Number of Individual Winners per Australian Based Sire Staying Stakes Races (2200m ) in Australia 2011-12 As I inferred earlier the female side of the pedigree is equally important in contributing distance characteristics to the progeny. Looking more holistically at the pedigrees of the sixty individual stakes winners it s revealed that a high ratio (42%) carry either Sadler s Wells his brother Fairy King or their three quarter brother Nureyev. (see Table 3.) is may be more easily digested when you consider that Galileo High Chaparral and Montjeu for instance are from the Sadler s Wells line while Zabeel is out of a Nureyev mare. Fairy King is on the sire line of Helenus and Encosta De Lago. IDENTIFYING STAYING SIRES OF UPCOMING YEARLINGS A search through the pedigrees and race records of stallions established and not yet established in Australia reveals the following information. Of course not everybody who buys a young horse will be buying at a commercial sale so therefore I have included stallions whose progeny are not generally o ered at these sales. Of the 45 stallions which went to stud in 2009 (of all levels from commercial to private) Duke of Marmalade (standing in NSW) Prince Arthur (NSW) Redoute s Dancer (Vic) and Super Kid (SA) were the only ones to have won a stakes-race above 2200 metres. e progeny of that crop of stallions are only current two-year-olds. Last season (2011) there were 47 new stallions. Of those only Monaco Consul (NSW) Roman Emperor and Rebel Raider (Vic) won a stakes-race at 2200 metres or further. Only 39 new Stallions went to stud this season. Of those Gio Ponti (NSW) Illustrious Blue (Vic) and So You Think (NSW) won black-type at staying distances. Of the 92 Freshman sires going to stud back in 2010 only two Annenkov (NSW) and Hala Bek (WA) have earned black type over a staying distance. Looking at Table 4 you can see the sires which have produced stakes-winners at 2200 metres or beyond. e 29 individual sires of the forty Australian bred distance race winners are spread as illustrated with Galileo taking honours as the most proli c siring four of the forty individual winners. With Galileo no longer shuttling and the second most proli c Jeune deceased this information is chie y academic. Of the ve stallions which have two individual winners only Al Maher and Blackfriars are currently standing. e chart therefore appears chie y academic however sons of Galileo are now standing in Australia so this information is not irrelevant. ere are several established stayer producing stallions (with runners three years old or older) in Australia. PROVEN STAMINA PRODUCERS OF 2013 YEARLINGS AL MAHER (DANEHILL) While the average winning distance of Al Maher progeny is only 1432m he has produced more than the odd classy performer over longer distances. Dance With Her is todate second in the 2400m Brisbane Cup and a Listed winner at 2350m. She is out of a Tights (Nijinsky II) mare. King Lionheart (Manntari) has won up to 2200m and Unchain My Heart (Prince of Birds Storm Bird) won a Listed race over 2800m. Kinnersley (Geiger Counter) has won up to 2200m. BLACKFRIARS (DANEHILL) is Champion Sire is a consistent source of middle and staying distance progeny. Not only did he produce two stakes-winners 2200m and upwards (Pop Culture and Rohan) but a further four individuals who won stakesraces at 1600m to 2199m (God Has Spoken Playing God Moneghetti and Rosie Rocket). Blackfriars was a VRC Derby winner and is out of a Grosvenor (Sir Tristram) mare. DYLAN THOMAS (IRE) (DANEHILL) Winner of the 2400m Prix de l Arc de Triomphe Dylan omas Australian progeny are currently two year olds. Overseas he has produced several stakes performers over longer distances his oldest being three year olds. DESERT KING (IRE) (DANEHILL) is seasoned stallion boasts triple Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva as his gurehead. He has produced a further three Gr1 winners in Australia and Europe in the 2200m-plus category. Desert King s dam is by the great Nureyev a three quarter brother to Sadler s Wells. His Australian-bred Gr1 winners are out of mares by Riverman and Last Tycoon. GOLDEN SNAKE (USA) (DANZIG) e sire of 2012 s Italian Gr1-winning star Quiza Quiza Quiza Golden Snake s local talent include Hissing Sid the dual winner of the Warrnambool Cup and whose nine wins stretch to a distance of 3300m. Hissing Sid is out of a mare by Melbourne Cup winner At Talaq so there s no surprise that he is able to excel at stamina distances. WA Gr1 winner over 2100m Gilded Venom (dam by Delgado) is a half-brother to VRC Newmarket Hcp winner Scenic Blast a top class sprinter. is demonstrates the stamina in uence that Golden Snake o ered their dam Daughter s Charm. HELENUS (HELISSIO) A grandson of Fairy King Australian Derby winner Ethiopia and BMW Stakes winner Cedarberg head his stakes winners. Both are out of mares by Spectrum (Rainbow Quest) with Cedarberg carrying Nureyev through his second damsire Zabeel. Helenus other two stakes winners are out of mares by Australian buyers have largely been guilty of ignoring staminabred yearlings over the years... 22 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.

Tanby Sea Galleon Niwot and Galizani successfully represented him. A half brother to triple Gr1 winner Sea Siren Discorsi stands in WA. DUKE OF MARMALADE (IRE) (DANEHILL) With eldest progeny only two-year-olds Duke Of Marmalade is yet to have a Southern Hemisphere runner. His European crop has to-date produced a 2YO stakes placegetter who has won over 2000m. GREY SWALLOW (IRE) (DAYLAMI) Grey Swallow s oldest progeny are only three-year-olds. To-date he has only had eight starters (for two winners). Irish Champion Older Horse (11-14f) in 2006 he is out of a mare line bred to Stolen Hour. is is also the family of Redoute s Choice Domesday Umatilla Hurricane Sky Try My Best etc. It would be interesting to further line breed to this family by using mares by one of the stallions mentioned. Grey Swallow s sire Daylami was represented at this year s Spring Carnival by Voila Ici which ran second in the Gr1 VRC Underwood Stakes and mid eld in the Melbourne Cup. HALA BEK (IRE) (HALLING) A freshman stallion in WA Hala Bek won at 2200m and was fourth in the English Derby (2400m). Hala Bek is out of a Sadler s Wells mare a rming his ability to pass on stamina. Combined with the largely sprint type-pedigreed mares in Western Australia he should be able to produce a good middle to distance type. NEW APPROACH (IRE) (GALILEO) On Darley s Victorian roster English Derby winner New Approach is another representative of the great Galileo. As mentioned earlier there is an encouraging group of quality stamina-bred stallions standing in Australia yet to have yearlings. With various sectors of the industry seemingly committing to producing and o ering this product it will be very interesting to see if the buying public grab the stayer by the tail and hang on for the long ride. Here s hoping for diversity s sake they do. Marauding (Sir Tristram) and Woodman (Mr. Prospector). Bringing the brothers Sadler s Wells and Fairy King together in a mating would be an interesting stamina pattern for Helenus. HIGH CHAPARRAL (IRE) (SADLER S WELLS) High Chaparral s top class performance as a stallion rides on his New Zealand and European sired progeny who have an AWD of just under 2000m. His oldest Aussie-breds are only yearlings. HOLD THAT TIGER (USA) (STORM CAT) No longer standing in Australia but with yearling progeny here Hold at Tiger had a good season last year producing two stakeswinners at staying distances. Red Typhoon (ex mare by Bluebird thereby duplicating Storm Bird) and Apprehend (mare by Touching Wood) are his representatives. RESET (ZABEEL) By proven stayer-getter Zabeel (who is out of a Nureyev mare) Reset has produced several top class runners above 2200m. Rebel Raider (out of a Dehere mare) and Vatuvei (Rivotious) come to mind. ird in the VRC Oaks (2400m) the Cox Plate heroine Pinker Pinker (Success Express) may have also won in this category but for her untimely death. SAVOIRE VIVRE (IRE) (SADLER S WELLS) Tasmanian based Savoire Vivre has produced three stakes performers (of 13) which have performed at 2200m or further. Tasmanian Derby winner Methuselah (dam by Weasel Clause) Benalla Gold Cup winner Rhumb Line (Keltrice) and VRC Bagot Stakes placegetter Viva Delspec (Aliocha) demonstrate that Savoire Vivre is living up to the great strike rate sons of Sadler s Wells have in the stayer producer department. SHAMARDAL (USA) (GIANT S CAUSEWAY) While he is no longer gracing our shores Shamardal s last Australian crop will step through the ring in 2013. Assisted by Faint Perfume s damsire Zabeel Shamardal s daughter was a Gr1 winner up to 2500m. STREET CRY (USA) (MACHIAVELLIAN) A half-brother to Shamardal s dam Street Cry has also produced Gr1-winning middle distance and staying horses. Shocking (ex mare by Danehill) won a Melbourne Cup. TEOFILO (IRE) (GALILEO) Teo lo has demonstrated early on that he can throw a stayer. His oldest are European three-year-olds but the current average winning distance of his progeny is 1878m and as they further mature this may lengthen. His Gr3 winner (2200m) Light Heavy was third in the Gr1 Irish Derby over 2800m. VALIXIR (IRE) (TREMPOLINO) A dual Gr1 winner and a Gr2 winner over 2800m Valixir s oldest Australian progeny are four-year-olds. Of his 15 winners to-date his best performed is the WATC Melvista Stakes (2200m) winner Lethal Jones (ex mare by Arena). A complete outcross for most Australian-bred mares it s not surprising that he clicked with Arena a stamina biased son of Danehill. YET-TO-BE-PROVEN STAMINA SIRES of 2013 YEARLINGS ANNENKOV (IRE) (DANEHILL) A winner over 2400 metres in France Annenkov is an OTI import which also won three races here up to 2000 metres. He is a full-brother to Aquarelliste a triple Gr1 winner up to 2400m and Artiste Royale a dual Gr1 winner up to 2400m. He is out of a mare by Manila (by Lyphard). Standing in NSW his oldest progeny are yearlings. AUTHORIZED (IRE) (MONTJEU) By Sadler s Wells s son Montjeu Authorized is an English Derby winner (2400m). His sire produced two AJC Australian Derby winners and of course the 2012 Melbourne Cup winner Green Moon. DISCORSI (GALILEO) Discorsi s sire Galileo had the highest Some studs are taking the guesswork out of what distance their new stallions will throw by having them genetically tested. 24 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM Nothing in the world is Nothing in the world is so powerful as an idea so powerful as an idea whose time has come whose time has come Victor Hugo - 18th Century Poet.

And if this honour roll isn t impressive enough preceding these results were the top-shelf victories of Proprietor (2006 AJC e Galaxy) Undoubtedly (2005 MRC Blue Diamond Stks) and St Clemens Belle (1999 WATC Fruit n Veg Stks) as well as four individual Gr1 wins recorded by Mummify wedged somewhere in between. operation Chris Watson has no trouble recalling the stud s speci c involvement with each individual member of the baker s dozen and proudly details their ties. Happy Trails Captain Sonador Princess Coup Mummify Divine Madonna and Gold Guru were all in utero [on Mill Park] con rms Watson. All their dams were then sent interstate to be served before returning with their foals at foot. Serious Speed arrived as a foal at foot while Devil Moon Undoubtedly Proprietor Southern Speed and Rebel Raider all arrived as weanlings before being grown out to sell or race. St Clemens Belle arrived as a yearling. Watson explained the successful procedure Mill Park has in place to accommodate the needs of their clients and to achieve such impressive long-term results. All the mares now foal-down in NSW or Vic where they are served and then all of them get transported back to Mill Park. I believe all of the Group winners we have produced were reared here and were either subsequently sold or le in the paddock until 2-year-olds and then raced by the owners. EG. Southern Speed. e role the Watsons have played in the development of so many top-liners has not been lost on the marketplace where the name of Mill Park carries genuine cache. However the family spokesperson is the rst to point out the part the Limestone Coast s environment has played in the stud s success. We believe the coastal environment high calcium balanced feed and very low stocking rates probably helps a lot contends Chris Watson. eing able to lay claims on one of the stars of this year s Melbourne spring racing carnival isn t a bad way to establish the bona des of any thoroughbred nursery but just one Gr1 winner of very recent time doesn t remotely do justice to Mill Park Stud of Meningie. A family concern located on the Limestone Coast of South Australia Mill Park has a record of achievement any major commercial operation would be proud of boasting a strike-rate of Pattern Race success way above and beyond the norm. In fact if they were a racing stable there s be a stewards enquiry. Happy Trails is the latest Gr1 graduate in a remarkable sequence witnessed over the past dozen or so years. e celebrated 2012 VRC Emirates Stakes winner spent virtually all of his formative days at Mill Park before being sold by the out t at the Magic Millions 2009 Adelaide Yearling Sale for a paltry 11 000. Now a multiple black-type winner of over 1.2 million in earnings Happy Trials emergence is another instance of what is basically bordering on being an industry phenomenon. In chronological order MRC Caul eld Cup winner Southern Speed proved to be the Mill Park Stud standard bearer in topight company in 2011 and 2010 AJC Epsom Handicap winner Captain Sonador the year before that. Prior still season 2008 09 not only witnessed Rebel Raider become a dual Derby winner in the Australian Classic division but Princess Coup soar to great heights in A-Grade company across the Tasman. e spring of 2007 was no less That s 13 Gr1 winners all told from Classics to Cups under handicap and weight-for-age conditions... at s 13 Gr1 winners all told from Classics to Cups under handicap and weightfor-age conditions plus a coveted juvenile jewel thrown in for good measure all with a past involving Mill Park Stud. Mill Park Stud s association with these modern-day stars is by no means tenuous and emanates from the fact that the aforementioned gallopers all spent at least one important stage of their development under the supervision of proprietors Peter and Serena Watson as well as their son Chris and his wife Sian. Speaking on behalf of the 26 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM e horse enterprise has been established on 2000 acres with an average paddock size of 40-50 acres. Add to this a very good feeding programme for all stock as well as very professional yearling preparation. All these factors enable a natural free-range upbringing that we believe is part of the successful raising of competitive racehorses. An obvious advocate of the region Chris Watson adds It is just excellent country for nishing-o all stock. It is used traditionally as a dairy beef and wool production area. We are at the top-end and further south are some excellent vineyards too. e property was originally called Belacre. We still market our top quality merino wool as the Belacre clip. Mill Park started as a successful commercial cattle and sheep operation with breeding horses as a hobby. It became a more commercial commitment in 1990 with the farm converting additional paddocks to suit horses. Watson recalls that it was success in the sales ring that triggered his family into increasing the scale of its thoroughbred arm. We topped the Adelaide sale in 1989 with a Rancher colt and our con dence grew [from there]. We subsequently accepted all the stock from Toorak Park Stud who closed down its own property at the time. We then gradually increased the quality of our infrastructure and continued to get winners and sell well. I believe the success of Gold Guru and St Clemens Belle and then a bit later on Mummify set us up and gave us the con dence that we could breed raise and race thoroughbreds to compete at the highest level. Ironically Mill Park s rise and rise has come during a period of a time that has seen the thoroughbred industry of South Australia slip into decline. Once renowned for providing some of the nest quality racehorses in the country the Festival State is no longer the force it once was despite Mill Park s considerable e orts. e breeding industry looks tough in SA at the moment concedes Watson. e overall broodmare numbers in the state have dropped and it is a cause for concern. But there are numerous boutique breeders like Summerset Park Cornerstone Stud Kiah Glen as well as farm clients Toorak Park Stud and Brenton & Liz Parker punching above their weight. We hope this continues to provide incentive for other like-minded breeders in South Australia to continue to improve their broodmare bands in quality as well as quantity to compete successfully with the Eastern States. As for Mill Park Chris Watson has a clear mission statement that not only explains how his family s out t has come so far in such a short space of time but also re ects a determination to stay at the same level for the foreseeable future. Declares Watson We will always hope to race some great llies to stakes class and add these to our broodmare band. We will always concentrate on improving the quality of mares we have on the farm. We will continue to build the best infrastructure to cater for mares foals and spellers. We will aim to continue to breed and sell the best types possible and hope for continued success at the highest level. But at the end of the day we would like to be remembered for our integrity for our commitment to providing the best possible care for our clients and their horses remaining safe in the knowledge that purchasers can buy from us with the utmost con dence. Mill Park Stud s achievements for more than the past decade are proof positive that Watson means every word.

All images Steve Hart THE CUP 28 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM he rst seven horses home in the Melbourne Cup were bred in Ireland. Last year s winner was born in France. Where is the logic in trying to have the world s best staying race in a nation that doesn t value stayers enough to produce one of world class quality And does the Cup represent our staying stock or is it a race in isolation e rst nominations show that there are plenty of horses out there that trainers think are worthy of running but the di erence in conversion rate into the eld is a concern. ere is a huge swing in favour of the Northern Hemisphere bred horses. Horses bred in the NH were only 43% of the rst nominations but made up a whopping 75% of the nal eld. And the conversion rate for making the eld was a massive 28% if the horse was born in the Northern Hemisphere while only a miniscule 7% of the Southern Hemisphere nominations made the nal eld. e skew shown by these statistics tell us that European horses are more likely to get into the Melbourne Cup eld but they don t tell us why. e most obvious reason is that they get more weight and thus are higher up the order of entry. But some argue that the European raced horses aren t getting enough weight so too many are making the long trip down here and running under false light weights. Gai Waterhouse s husband Rob a former bookmaker and one of the country s leading form students believes that the European horses should be given more weight to properly re ect their quality relative to our local product. He claims e European stayers are better horses and should be weighted appropriately. As a group the Northern Hemisphere horses outperform the locals despite inappropriate preparations. Consider Gai s runner Fiorente he ran second while e ectively still su ering jetlag and rst-up from a spell. Waterhouse declares e only conclusion is that they are weighted too lightly. Perhaps the handicapper gives the European horses lower weights in order to encourage them to compete here but that would be in breach of the handicapper s duty to give all horses an equal chance. It seems counter intuitive to give more weight to the European raiders as more weight will put them further up the ballot T Country of Birth NZ AUS IRE GB FR GER USA ITY ARG TOTAL SH bred NH bred First Nominations 47 38 28 12 9 8 7 1 1 151 86 65 % Nominations 31% 25% 19% 8% 6% 5% 5% 1% 1% 57% 43% Final Field 4 2 10 2 2 1 3 0 0 24 6 18 % Runners 17% 8% 42% 8% 8% 4% 13% 0% 0% 25% 75% Conversion Rate (Runners Nominations) 9% 5% 36% 17% 22% 13% 43% 0% 0% 16% 7% 28% Local winner Efficient I propose a new race... a Cup Consolation (3200m) on Melbourne Cup day at adjusted weights for the next 24 horses in the Cup order... list. Yet this is what will be required in order to ensure a higher transition of local horses from the rst nominations into the actual eld. Higher weights for the international raiders will disincentivize them from travelling here giving more opportunity to the locally-trained horses and ultimately increasing the punters knowledge of the eld. And how o en do we hear that the international horses are only Listed winners at home yet become Gr1 or Gr2 horses over distance here Furthermore for big name European trainers like Luca Cumani to say that previous Cup winners and placegetters wouldn t be classy enough to win a race like the Arc de Triomphe only adds to the perceived quality gap between hemispheres. To put this comment in some perspective the aforementioned Fiorente ran fourth seven lengths behind the winner Orfevre in the Gr2 Prix Foy over 2400m in his start prior to the Cup. Orfevre followed his Prix Foy victory with a runner-up in the Prix de l Arc de Triomphe and a nose 2nd in the Gr1 Japan Cup. Meandre who ran second in the Prix Foy nished in 12th in the Arc. e higher number of internationallytrained horses in the eld might be good for the idealistic belief that it gives the race a global reputation. e bias towards Northern Hemisphere-bred horses in the eld both locally and internationally trained is also bad for the local breeding scene and probably hurts New Zealand the most. ey are the traditional market for Australian trainers to source their stayers and yet New Zealand-bred horses have won the Cup only once in the last ten years. NZTM s CEO Andrew Birch refutes this interpretation stating I think looking at the Melbourne Cup in isolation as the sole indication of the health of our industry is fraught with danger. New Zealand breeders are essentially sellers with around 40% of our foal crop exported annually. Hence our breeders are acutely aware of market demands which in recent years has been for middle distance and fast stayers. ere are too few out and out staying races in Australasia for people to base their breeding programme around producing two-milers. We have already seen races like the Brisbane and Wellington Cups reduced in distance to 2400m which gives people even less encouragement to breed a horse that will go two miles.

We can t promote the Cup in isolation to the rest of our racing scene. It is the overall picture that counts believes Birch. You only need to look at our record in Australia in recent years and see that we have produced 23% of all Gr1 winners over the past 5 years from just over 5% of the runners. Ocean Park is probably the pinup weight for age horse in Australasia right now and our Classic-bred horses continue to perform. I de nitely think the fact that racing in Hong Kong and Singapore continues to go from strength to strength is also having a bearing on our breeding program. While New Zealand bred horses have captured 6 of the last 10 Hong Kong and Singapore Derbies respectively there are certainly limited racing opportunities for stoutly-bred horses in those jurisdictions. Birch concludes by noting Personally I think the international competition we are seeing across the spring carnival is great for racing. e racing world is a much smaller place these days as evidenced by the fact that 3 of the 7 Gr1 races at Royal Ascot this year were won by horses bred and raised in Australasia. e other problem with the current import fad is that the punters struggle to gure out the market and this lack of con dence in the form could that they just stay away. is should in theory be bad for turnover - which ultimately is bad for prize money however betting giant Tabcorp experienced a 6.5% increase on the 2012 Cup to almost 100 million. Either way punters should take some comfort from the following table. Every one of the past 16 winners of the Cup had their start prior to their Cup victory in Australia. Ok so plenty of the placegetters didn t but as far as simplistic theories go it s pretty good.

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.

A historical hangover is the current season VRC Derby. There have been 13 3YOs win the VRC Derby and go on to win the Melbourne Cup only a few days later but the most recent one was Skipton in 1941 (and 10 of the 13 were before 1915). Swap it for the season before (last winner of that double was Efficient in 2007 s Melbourne Cup). And add the previous season s AJC Derby while we are at it to ensure the best up and coming stayer gets a shot. at makes eleven races for trainers to chase to guarantee their charges a spot. It could be said that the Sydney Cup winner (Niwot) and the AJC Derby winner (Ethiopia) made the eld anyway so why bother But the Geelong Cup winner (Gatewood) did not and surely that is a travesty given the race s form record. e proposed ballot system will ensure that these horses are in the Cup regardless of the handicapper s opinion of them in September. It is good for Australian racing to have horses here and competing in our racing scene for their spots in the Cup and it is even better for punters who will get to see more potential Cup runners in local conditions. Give the punters con dence in the form and they ll increase turnover even further than the increase we saw this year. For the last berth I propose a new race. e Cup Consolation to be run as the last race on the card on Melbourne Cup day over 3200m at weight for age for the next 24 horses in the Cup order i.e. those horses nominated for the Cup but which didn t make the eld. ese horses are t and ready to run in the Cup they may as well race on the same day over the same conditions.

Having a runner is only participating. e 34 year-old son of Arrow eld Stud principal and Racing NSW Chairman John Messara operates his training base in the Hunter Valley heartland of Scone and is fast establishing a reputation for results. Having achieved successful international campaigns with Gr1 winning mares Alverta and Ortensia it is these results on the world stage that see Paul Messara at the forefront of the next generation of our thoroughbred training ranks and which have added fanned the ames of his winning ambition. Taking horses overseas gives you a taste for those big carnivals Messara notes. His stable star is unquestionably the sevenyear-old Testa Rossa mare Ortensia who since joining the Messara team has gone from would-be retirement as one of the unluckiest horses in racing to a triple Gr1 winner. From March to August this year Ortensia set out on a remarkable six-month international expedition with Messara at the helm. e results victory in the Gr1 Al Quoz Sprint at Meydan followed by a European campaign which saw triumphs in the Gr2 King George Stakes at Goodwood and the Gr1 Nunthorpe Stakes at York. Ortensia has returned in good health and is currently building up her tness levels with work on the aqua-sizer (underwater treadmill) with her rst up target a likely clash with Black Caviar in the Gr1 Lightning Stakes on the agenda. With such a quality record over the last twelve months the mare s Autumn program is likely to be centred around weightfor-age options including possible tilts at the Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes and a return trip to Dubai. YOUNG TURKS THE NEW GENERATION TRAINERS Paul Messara In the first of a series on Young Turks Australia s next generation of up-and-coming trainers Cassandra Simmonds finds Arrowfield Training Centre s Paul Messara has his eye firmly on the prize. With 45-50 horses in work at any one time 95 percent of Messara s work is completed at the Scone training facility. Whilst he does have the privilege of nine boxes at Randwick these are primarily used over carnival time. Messara describes his team as not a big stable and has no immediate plans for expansion into other states. He previously operated a satellite stable on the Sunshine Coast which proved not to be viable with the prizemoney levels in comparison to those in NSW. Messara has built a core team at the Arrow eld Training Centre with 18 sta many of which are long-term employees. He believes maintaining this continuity is crucial without established clients. It s your future every year Messara explains. is future appears to hold plenty of promise with a lovely bunch of 20-25 twoyear-olds including a number purchased at the Magic Millions sales earlier this year coming through the Arrow eld Training Centre regime. at s the number we re interested in keeping Messara advises. As well as these untapped juveniles he has some very promising unraced three-year-olds and the recent Gr3 Sandown Stakes winner Mahisara to provide inspiration for those early mornings and long days. With a degree in Communications at Bond University to his credit Messara created plenty of media attention with his video updates of Ortensia s progress during her overseas assault. Whilst surprised by the attention as he modestly admits the videos were inspired by spare time on his hands during his sojourn he recognises utilising new technology is another important avenue to engaging owners. Nonetheless to attract new owners to his stable Messara believes the most successful technique is physically meeting people. is aided by performance on the racetrack and having a headline horse in your stable is the best advertising that money can t buy. Back to those Melbourne Cup aspirations and Messara is not in any hurry to join the long queue of Australians looking to acquire European-tried horses. He believes they have become over-priced due to the demand of a competitive market most with no residual value. is approach will not dampen Messara s drive and blinkered vision to succeed in the training sphere. I don t enjoy having a runner just for the sake of it. I d like to think whatever I put in a race has a winning chance he reveals. Sounds like a chip off the old block W Having a headline horse in your stable is the best advertising that money can t buy... to communication for his sta to understand exactly what he wants. You can t do everything yourself he quips.

Judged by a panel of international experts IAH was nominated for its project to commercialise a world- rst solution to the problem of parasite resistance which is a major problem for all horse owners. In fact resistance threatens the viability of all the livestock grazing industries that together make a major contribution to many economies throughout the world and to the global protein and bre supplies. As horse owners know the health and performance of their animals depends on successful management of their parasitic nematode burdens which has traditionally been done with chemicals. ese chemicals are losing e ectiveness due to resistance and this is rapidly-becoming an important problem for horse owners due to increased treatment costs and reduced e ectiveness of treatment. e situation is bad-enough now and getting worse and for other grazing animals the situation is even worse than in horses. For example there have even been instances where it has forced farmers to abandon grazing sheep altogether. is situation could also occur in horses if something isn t done. In addition the animals shed chemical residues in their urine and manure which causes unintended environmental harm such as to dung beetles. Based originally on CSIRO research IAH s BioWorma products will provide a chemical-free solution employing biological control. e active ingredient is the spores of a natural fungus which is harmless to animals and humans and is already widespread in the environment. Worm populations in grazing animals are propagated in a cycle in which worm eggs are shed into the animals manure where they hatch into larvae that migrate onto the pasture and re-infect the animals as they feed. Owners will simply feed BioWorma to their animals and the spores will pass intact into their manure where they will become active trapping and devouring immature worms breaking the parasite infestation cycle. e fungus seeks a nitrogen source for its growth 36 I This is rapidlybecoming an important problem for horse owners due to increased treatment costs... and gets this from the larvae. To see Sir David Attenborough s description of this process please see http watch v 0n04wCkIpuQ. In practice the animals would be treated with a chemical wormer and if possible moved onto rested pasture (not grazed by horses for 3 months) which should ensure it has a low level of parasite larvae. Use of BioWorma will maintain the animals in a lowworm state which will be checked from time to time by monitoring of their manure. Because of its unique natural mode of action BioWorma will be e ective against parasites that have become resistant to chemicals and research has proven that BioWorma will be environmentally friendly. IAH has been conducting an extensive program to convert this concept into practical products for owners to use and then to prove their e ectiveness in eld trials. Conducted by a leading contract research organisation IAH s trials have primarily targeted horses cattle sheep and goats. BioWorma will be e ective for all grazing animals said IAH CEO Chris Lawlor but we have focussed on those of prime economic importance. However to prove a point we have also conducted some preliminary trials in a range of zoo animals and the results were just as good. IAH has conducted 19 eld trials in Australia using trial designs worked-up with input from CSIRO and leading veterinarians. ese have encompassed a variety of climatic zones and covered di erent seasons. A typical result from one of IAH s horse trials is shown in the graph above. is shows the number of infective nematode larvae that are found on the pasture surrounding pats of horse manure over an eight-week period. As you can see said Lawlor the numbers of larvae were greatly reduced when the manure pats were from animals that had been fed BioWorma . He also pointed-out that BioWorma has proven to be e ective against all the major species of nematode worms. IAH has secured funding for moving forward with BioWorma into early stage commercialisation with support from AusIndustry. is is a good example of private industry working with government support to bring a CSIRO idea into the real world said Lawlor. Due to the pressing need for a solution to the problem of chemical resistance the project has strong received support from the rural industries including rural merchandisers feed mills and veterinarians. IAH s product range includes the wellknown products Livamol Protexin and its worming range including MecWorma & Tape Allwormer MecWorma & Bot Worma Paste and Worma Drench. It is intended that BioWorma will go to the Australian regulator in 2013 and IAH anticipates a two-year time frame before reaching the market.

Spare a thought then for yearling vendors and stud farms whose experience is sometimes not too dissimilar when it comes to each year s round of yearling sales. What used to amount to a few weeks away at most for the bigger farms that have a presence at all the major sales it can be more like a long-distance relay from one event to the next but where the same players always appear to have the baton in hand. Of course these days it s not just about yearlings but also the major breeding stock sales where many hundreds of broodmares and weanlings also come under the microscope and go under the hammer. In 2013 the Australian & New Zealand Sales start with a bang in January with no less than 3 majors underway before the end of the month a situation that continues more or less unabated till June. Remembering that consignors teams are o en on site for yearling inspections a week before the actual sales start here s the complete 2013 line-up.

One of the headline horses to emerge from this historic rst Sale was Concentrate (NZ) who ran a heroic third in the 1931 Melbourne Cup a er injuring himself in the straight. A year later the 1928 New Zealand Yearling Sales produced one of the all-time greats the kiwi icon Phar Lap (NZ) whose achievements are etched into Australasia s equine racing history. Phar Lap was the rst graduate of the New Zealand Yearling Sales to win what has become Australasia s Weight-for-Age Championship the Cox Plate winning the 1930 & 1931 editions and he was closely followed by Mosaic (NZ) who won the race in 1939. is proud tradition has become a major draw card for New Zealand as it has become the leading producer of Cox Plate winners in recent history having bred 25 of the last 50 Cox Plate winners. New Zealand-bred horses have also won ve of the last six Cox Plates with El Segundo (NZ) (Pins) Maldivian (NZ) (Zabeel) So You ink (NZ) (High Chaparral) twice and the 2012 winner Ocean Park (NZ) ( orn Park). e success of New Zealand gallopers in Australia has not just been limited to this one race. Kiwi-bred horses have won almost a quarter of all Australia s Gr1 races over the last ve seasons all this with just over 5% of the total racing population. As New Zealand Bloodstock s CoManaging Director Petrea Vela explains this success has played a major role in attracting Australian buyers to the Karaka Yearling Sales. e results that New Zealand horses have been achieving not only in Australia but around the world has stamped New Zealand into one the world s leading thoroughbred nurseries. New Zealand horses have a hugely impressive record in some of the most coveted races in Australia which belies the size of the kiwi representation. e Derbies and Cups are still our unique strength and are making Karaka a compelling option for yearling buyers. In addition to the Cox Plate New Zealand has also bred half of the last 50 Melbourne Cup winners and has an outstanding record in the classic three-year-old races in particular the Derbies having won 18 Derby titles in six countries since 2010. Australia has become the leading buying market at the Karaka Yearling Sales and in the last three years alone Australian buyers have spent over 127 million on almost 1 000 yearlings almost a quarter of the horses o ered at the Karaka Yearling Sales in the last three years. But it s no wonder when the Karaka Sale has claimed no less than 75 individual Gr1winning yearling graduates in the last ve seasons more than any other auction house in Australasia. 52 For Daily Industry News Updates visit KARAKA YEARLING SALES SERIES JAN 28 FEB 4 2013 KARAKA 2012 - STATS PREMIER Aggregate Average Median Clearance Catalogued Lots Sold Top Price 54 137 000 154 677 120 000 74% 516 350 1 750 000 SELECT 19 114 500 46 059 35 000 74% 620 415 230 000 FESTIVAL 3 197 800 15 300 12 000 77% 308 209 70 000 COMBINED 77 334 300 78 512 47 500 75% 1444 985 1 750 000 Australia has become the leading buying market at the Karaka Yearling Sales spending in the last three years 127 million on almost 1 000 yearlings... at s nearly 40% of all Gr1-winning yearling graduates sold in Australasia over that period commented Vela.

Among their numbers are the two reigning sires respectively of New Zealand and Australia. Both O Reilly and Fastnet Rock are well represented and with the added impetus of another exceptional start to the current season the buying bench will attempt to pick the eyes out of what s on o er. O Reilly has dashed clear to an already formidable lead over Pins and Darci Brahma in the 2012 13 NZ Stallion Premiership and the Waikato Stud stallion is represented by 47 Premier yearlings a large percentage consigned by Waikato Stud themselves. Among O Reilly highlights are Lot 231 a sister to the multiple Gr1 winner and exciting young sire Alamosa plus a colt from the Gr2-winning Zabeel mare La eur (Lot 218) dam of Group 3 winner Amaryllis (Red Ransom) and stakes winner Papilio (Redoute s Choice). Fastnet Rock has been hailed as a potential breed shaper. With Redoute s Choice having carried the mantle as the heir-apparent to his sire Danehill for so long Fastnet Rock appears to be in the same rare ed company and the 15 Fastnet Rocks 10 consigned by Curraghmore at Premier will shake the house . Among them Sea Change has a Zabeel colt for sale 338) La Bella Dama (Lot 208) plus siblings to Gr1 winners including Military Move (Lot 11) Monaco Consul (Lot 20) and Tavistock (Lot 412).

Reigning Dewar Champion Sire (combined Aust & NZ performers) a distinction he has held an unprecedented 15 times is notable for over 40 Premier yearlings among them a colt out of multiple Gr1 Seachange. Amazingly though the attraction to Zabeel for many owners at Karaka may not only be for his yearlings but equally for the progeny of his daughters. Having won BOTH Australia s and New Zealand s Broodmare Sire Premierships the Cambridge Stud warhorse is repeating the dose for the new season. ere are 42 yearlings in the Premier Sale that are out of Zabeel mares and some of the highlights include Lot 4 half-brother to Planet Rock by Alamosa Lot 218 half-brother to Amaryllis and Papilio by O Reilly Lot 264 half-sister to Headturner and Anacheeva by O Reilly Lot 282 half-brother to Dolmabache and Pure Elegance by High Chap Lot 330 half-brother to Ocean Park by Pins Lot 404 half-sister to La Sizeranne by Tavistock T Of course as is always the case there will be strong focus on the freshman yearling sires... is Lot 252 the half-brother to Hong Kong Gr1 Champions & Chater Cup winner Liberator and the lly from dual Gr1 winning mare Scenic mare Episode (Lot 129). Of course as is always the case there will be strong focus on the freshman yearling sires those young stallions with their rst crop of yearlings from whose ranks anything is possible. At this year s Premier renewal buyers will nd progeny of 13 individual rst crop sires they include Big Brown (2) Denman (4) Duporth (4) Manhattan Rain (1) Nicconi (1) Nom de Jeu (4) Onemorenomore (1) Red Giant (5) Road to Rock (3) Swiss Ace (2) Tavistock (14) and ewayyouare (1).

Champion 2YO colt in Europe and Ireland in 2008 Mastercra sman trained on to win the Gr1 Irish Two ousand Guineas St. James s Palace Stakes and Railway Stakes and much is expected of the son of Danehill Dancer.

Wayne Lukas used to dispense with catalogues at the major horse sales. He purportedly took the view that if the horses didn t have a decent pedigree they wouldn t be in the sale in the rst place so he d prefer to simply work with the yearling in front of him. e bottom line is that top- ight racehorses tend to come from all sectors of the breeding industry pedigrees notwithstanding and that unless residual value is the primary motivation behind a buyer s purchase decision what s most important above all else is that the individual they re planning to bid on is an athlete. In essence Magic Millions early foundations were paved on the premise of selling type yearlings those forward enough to be a signi cant chance of making the lucrative Magic Millions 2YO Classic held in each January on the Gold Coast. ese days there are also Magic Millionssponsored races across other States and in Asia plus of course there s an equally enticing 3YO Classic and a host of other options on their big day Gold Coast day in January. What s emerged over the past few decades is that Magic Millions graduates aside from competing against each other in MM-speci c races are among the best racehorses in Australia year-in year-out with their 2YOs winning 8 Golden Slippers at Rosehill Gardens since 2000. Magic Millions graduates are among the best racehorses in Australia winning 8 Golden Slippers at Rosehill Gardens since 2000... It s equally true that while type is almost a prerequisite for a Magic Millions Gold Coast yearling these young horses inevitably carry plenty of clout on their pedigree pages as well. e 2013 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale has 28 relations to Gr1 winners. Among the on pedigree are a couple of major standouts. Some of the examples include a Encosta de Lago half-brother to Absolute Champion Fastnet Rock half-sister to Whobegotyou Show A Heart full-brother to Heart Of Dreams Encosta de Lago -brother to Manhattan Rain More Than Ready full-brother to Perfectly Ready Northern Meteor half-brother to Nechita Fastnet Rock -brother to Stratum Encosta de Lago half-sister to Hollow Bullet Given the paucity of Gr1 races set aside purely for llies and mares females who earn a Gr1 invariably have to do it the hard way against their male contemporaries. ey are justi ably prized as broodmares and buyers even those focusing on type will pick the eyes out of the progeny of the 21 mares who are members of that star-studded club. ere are some stallions that seem able to produce crack athletes from a deep spectrum of broodmares no matter their dam lines sire lines or any other familial connections. Inevitably the progeny of these breed-shapers command a premium and Fastnet Rock is now unquestionably in that category. e son of Danehill boasts 36 catalogued yearlings one more than Choisir who has 35. Others with large drafts include Flying Spur (31) Nicconi (30) More Than Ready (28) Manhattan Rain (27) Not A Single Doubt (26) Sebring (26) Big Brown (25) and Northern Meteor (25). e allure of winning the Magic Millions 2YO Classic vies with the Blue Diamond Stakes behind the Golden Slipper at Rosehill as one of THE three big juvenile races to win each year.

Tasmania sometimes known as Australia s own little New Zealand conjures up a myriad images including ne wine from the Coal River Valley prime King Island beef cheeses Atlantic salmon the pristine water used by the James Boags Brewery history in Port Arthur and the beauty of Wineglass Bay and Cradle Mountain Located 240km south-east from the mainland Tasmania the apple isle is the island state of Australia the country s smallest state in size and in population (about 500 000) it is world-renowned for producing some of the nest quality agriculture viticulture and aquaculture as well as showcasing its world heritage listed areas to the world. And in an age where clean and green are fast developing serious cache and becoming in-demand selling points the world over Tasmania s unspoiled pristine environment is also rapidly becoming an acknowledged leader in producing high quality thoroughbred bloodstock. ese horses reared in pollutionfree environs are competing with distinction locally domestically on mainland Australian and also internationally. Due to Tasmania s temperate climate of reliable rainfall and rich soils which are very similar to the Waikato region of New Zealand Tasmanian breeders are able to produce a strong sound well-conformed HORSEPOWER W thoroughbred and at a much more e cient and cost competitive rate compared with many mainland centres. From when the colony of Van Diemen s Land was established in 1804 it took just over 15 years before settlers were importing thoroughbred racehorses. Two of the earliest arrivals were a stallion Peter Fin and a mare Edella. Both were to become ancestors of the remarkable Tasmanian bred horse Malua which won the Melbourne cup about 60 years later. Lanesborough came to the state in 1964 from Ireland. His legacy was assured with Beer Street winning the Caul eld Cup in 1967 and Piping Lane the Melbourne Cup in 1972. As gratifying as it is that people think of Piping Lane and Beer Street when Tasmanian-bred success stories are bandied about it s equally true that Tasmania is responsible for producing black type winners on an annual basis with some of this success in the nation s most prestigious Gr1 races In the 1970 s the late David Whishaw decided to convert his property Armidale to a thoroughbred breeding nursery and since that time the family has stood some twenty 20 stallions including leading sires St Briavels Poachers Moon Weasel Clause Aliocha Ladoni and the beautifully pedigreed Savoire Vivre. Armidale Stud continues to thrive today. Another stud farm of particular note is Grenville Stud which commenced operations in the early 1980s standing several stallions including successful sire West Quest. Among Tasmania s best-performed horses from the 1990s were Sydeston (by St Briavels) and Alfa. Sydeston competed in some of the best quality race elds of all time with his leading wins including the BMW in Sydney and the Caul eld Cup. He was also placed in a Cox Plate earning 3.125 million in stakes a fortune for that era. Alfa meanwhile was the champion 2YO in Tasmania of his year before transferring to the Bart Cummings stables where he won a Caul eld Guineas. And only recently Lady Lynette (by Ladoni) is a standout performer earning over 1.13 million in stakes. While the Bass Strait crossing was once considered an issue when transporting horses to and from Tasmania the Spirit of Tasmania ferry now provides a regular and speedy overnight service between Melbourne and Devonport less than one hour s drive from the majority of Tasmania s major thoroughbred studs and the famous Tamar Valley wine region near Launceston. oroughbred racing features in Tasmania every week with a relatively small and stable pool of horses trainers and jockeys. e state s racing product is being managed to exemplary quality standards all designed to best service customers at the three thoroughbred racing tracks. e three racetracks include Tattersall s Park in Hobart with a traditional turf track the Tote racing Centre in Launceston which features a premium StrathAyr turf surface 90 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM Living Legends Pristine Tasmania Come and experience the Tasmanian Magic Millions Yearling Sale in 2013 and see for yourself what a unique place Tasmania is... that was installed in 2006 and Tapeta Park at Spreyton which features an all-weather synthetic surface constructed in 2010. e Tote racing centre is also complemented by track lighting for night racing. A de facto acknowledgement of the riches on o er is the continual raiding parties that come from north of Bass Straight. Many of Victoria s leading trainers regularly travel racehorses to Tasmania by boat with their charges performing very well during the annual Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival. Annually the Tasmanian Breeders Association (TasBreeders) conducts a yearling sale held in early February of each year. For 2013 the sale in conjunction with TasRacing and Magic Millions will be conducted on the 14 February 2013 with the Tasmanian Magic Millions two-year and three-year classic races conducted the evening before (Wednesday 13 February) under lights at e TOTE Racing Centre Launceston. is will also include a pre-sale welcoming cocktail party. e 2013 edition of the sale will comprise a 136 lot catalogue which features an even mix of Tasmaniansired stock by stallions such as West Quest (Gone West) Incumbent (Choisir) Tough Speed (Miswiki) and Savoire Vivre (Sadler s Wells) with mainland sires such as Bushranger (Danetime) Written Tycoon All American and Holy Roman Emperor also represented by stock.

Meanwhile for lovers of marine activities the Australian Wooden Boat Festival is conducted on 8-11 February on Hobart s Waterfront showcasing a spectacular celebration of maritime culture and cra smanship. Apart from the events that highlight Tasmania s culture people visiting the state may also be interested in experiencing the history of Tasmania in the form of the World heritage-listed Port Arthur or the natural beauty on o er at Freycinet National Park which is home to one of the world s top ten beaches in Wineglass Bay. ere are of course also the World Heritage-listed areas of Cradle Mountain or the wild beauty of the FranklinGordon Wild rivers National Park. Tasmania has become an iconic brand in its own right and any epicurean around the world associates the name with clean green pristine cuisine. All grandstanding aside it s a reputation that s both deserved and wellearned. In the same way that critics once sco ed at the notion Tasmania had a future as a worldclass producer of wines the island state has all the attributes to leverage o the fertile source of bloodstock it is proving to be. But seeing is believing Come and experience the Tasmanian Magic Millions Yearling Sale in 2013 and see for yourself what a unique place Tasmania is. At best you ll leave with a horse reared to perfection at worst you ll fall in love with the majestic setting and experience somewhere utterly unique.
