Monthly Trading Performance Update TAB New Zealand (TAB NZ) today provides a trading update for August, the first month of the 2020/21 financial year. Moving forward, TAB NZ will provide regular updates on wagering performance and key operational highlights. Wagering Performance Summary Despite the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on its business and the wider industry, TAB NZ’s key results for the month were ahead of budget and last year. Starter and field size numbers were particularly good for both equine codes contributing to positive year-on-year domestic racing turnover growth. Encouragingly, total racing turnover continues to be strong, with year-on-year growth (+10.1%) with no significant growth in the volume of racing being broadcast. Analysis of customer behaviour shows that many bet on domestic racing only prior to lockdown have maintained their overseas racing activity while their domestic racing activity has returned back to prior levels. Sports turnover was strong (+36%), benefiting from the condensed nature of the sports calendar at the moment, with a number of sports seasons overlapping where they traditionally would not, eg. NBA taking place in August. This is helping to drive customer engagement levels.  Customer numbers responded positively with 94,000 customers for the month, with days active comparable to the peak November period (Melbourne Cup and NZ Cup Week and major World Cups in the past).  Retail operations and customers have also been shown to be resilient, notwithstanding the recent Greater Auckland Level 3 lockdown. Retail turnover in Auckland returned, almost immediately, to pre-lockdown levels. The Board  recognises the significance of a Level 3 or 4 lockdown on our gaming business is considerable given the absence of being able to provide a  comparable online offering. This presents risk to the funding of racing integrity, racing enhancement and community sport which Class 4 Gaming currently enables. Extra vigilance of gaming performance is therefore required to manage the ongoing risk of COVID-19. The Board is encouraged by the trading performance for the month however it remains cautious at this early stage of the season on the ability to meet full year projections. This is given the ongoing uncertainty presented by COVID-19 and the potential for further disruption to domestic and international product supply. August Operational Performance Highlights  Net Profit for the month was $12.8m, which was $1.7m above Budget and $1.4m above Last Year. This is made up of; Betting Profit $11.9m (+$2.2m v Budget), Gaming Profit of $1.4m (-$0.5m vs Budget) and Racing Integrity RIU (RIU) of -$0.5m (in-line vs Budget). The result was primarily driven by a strong trading month from turnover due to increased product supply with margin and continued cost management being in-line with Budget. Total Gaming Revenue is $0.6m below Budget and $0.7m (-26.3%) below Last Year due to Auckland sites being closed for 19 days during Covid-19 lockdown. All other stores overall were in line with Budget. Operating Expenses are $0.2m below Budget and $2.6m (+21.1%) below Last Year.  August Distributions Actual distributions of $11.5m for August were paid to the Racing Codes vs $10.7m budgeted.  This consists of TAB NZ Betting Profit, Betting Duty relief and offshore bookmaker commission fees (Betting Information User Charge (BIUC) in the table below), based on actual turnover. August Wagering Performance Highlights Account bettor customers were slightly up  (+1,200) on July’s numbers, with both racing and sport bettor numbers increasing: Racing customers were up 4% in July and sport customers were in line with July. Turnover of $208.2m is $21.8m above Budget and $27.1m (+14.9%) above Last Year impacted by strong performance in International Racing and Sport. Domestic racing accounted for $54m in turnover, with overseas racing product made up $82.2m of the month’s total turnover and sport delivering $71.7m in turnover. Gross Betting Revenue of $32.1m is $3.1m above Budget and $1.6m above last year due to higher turnover.  August Events Top 10 Racing Events by turnover 22-Aug Randwick R7 Winx Stakes (G1) $434K 15-Aug Riccarton R8 Winning Edge Presentations 123rd Winter Cup (G3) $425K 15-Aug Riccarton R10 Racecourse Hotel & Motor Lodge Handicap $388K 8-Aug Te Rapa R10 See You @ Valachi Downs Foxbridge Plate Day 1400 $324K 1-Aug Matamata R7 Well Done Jamie Richards & Team 100 Winners $323K 22-Aug Matamata R11 Happy 60th Russell Wright Handicap 2000 $287K 1-Aug Ashburton R9 Brand & Gunn Want The Return of Trackside Radio $285K 22-Aug Matamata R9 Cunningham Decorating Services Handicap 1200 $281K 1-Aug Matamata R5 Price Racing 1400 $268K 1-Aug Ashburton R10 Barnswood Farm Stakes Day 18th October $259K   Top 10 sport events by turnover 9-Aug Super Rugby Crusaders v Highlanders $645K 1-Aug Super Rugby Chiefs v Crusaders $608K 7-Aug NRL Manly Sea Eagles v NZ Warriors $599K 14-Aug NRL NZ Warriors v Penrith Panthers $575K 20-Aug NRL Parramatta Eels v Melbourne Storm $552K 30-Aug NRL Canberra Raiders v Canterbury Bulldogs $542K 27-Aug NRL Parramatta Eels v South Sydney Rabbitohs $519K 8-Aug Super Rugby Hurricanes v Chiefs $519K 13-Aug NRL Sydney Roosters v Melbourne Storm $518K 29-Aug NRL NZ Warriors v Newcastle Knights $518K

MILTON, September 19, 2020 - A scramble finish with multiple breakers saw Chestnut Hill at 60-1 shoot up the rail to a stunning harness racing victory in the $560,000 Canadian Trotting Classic on Saturday night at Woodbine Mohawk Park. All eyes were on heavy-favourite Ready For Moni in the rich event for three-year-old trotters. The Nancy Takter trainee and driver Yannick Gingras made the front in the second-quarter and appeared poised to close out the victory coming down the lane, but a rare miscue in the final-eighth opened the door for several closing rivals. Chestnut Hill and driver Andy McCarthy had been following along sixth and had dived down to the rail for his late bid. The 'Nifty' Norman trainee was full of trot late and somehow was able to avoid losing all momentum when squeezing by the breaking Ready For Moni, reaching up by half a length in 1:53.2. "Pretty close," laughed McCarthy when asked about how close he was to danger when avoiding the breaking horse. "I kind of yelled out to let Yannick (Gingras) know there was someone on the inside of him. "It worked out that he heard me and didn't want to crash into me, so he did a good job getting that horse out of the way safely and it worked out good for me and I got to sneak up there." Play Trix On Me made a first-up bid on the far turn and nearly came through for the victory, finishing second in the middle of several rivals. HP Royal Theo was charging on the outside in the lane when he also made a break, finishing third placed sixth for a lapped on break. Jula Trix Treasure was moved up to third, while Threefiftytwo jumped up to fourth. A son of champions Muscle Hill and Poof Shes Gone, Chestnut Hill was coming into Saturday off a win in the Pennsylvania Sires Stakes Consolation and now has three wins in 11 starts this season and five wins overall. The Norman trainee made over $248,000 at age two and was sitting on $86,169 earned in 2020 prior to the Canadian Trotting Classic. "I've been watching this horse and he has been sneaky good," said McCarthy. "I ended up in a spot that I wasn't too happy about heading around the last turn, but I was able to shake him out and sneak him back up the inside." Chestnut Hill, who was a $410,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale purchase in 2018, is owned by Mel Hartman, David McDuffee and Little E LLC. A $2 win ticket on Chestnut Hill returned $122.90.

Plainville, MA --- A pair of $12,000 filly and mare paces headlined the harness racing card at Plainridge Park on a rainy Thursday afternoon (Aug. 27) and both events provided very close finishes. The first was an aged upper level conditioned race that went to Firstup, who shipped in from Yonkers. Dontustopbelievn N (Mitchell Cushing) took the lead to the quarter, but Firstup (Shawn Gray) came first up and grabbed the top in front of the stands. The leader paced along unchallenged until the five-eights pole where That's Incredible (Jay Randall) pulled alongside and traded strides with Firstup to the three-quarters. Gray hit the gas in the last turn and started to get separation between himself and the field. Down the lane, Firstup was under a reclined line drive from Gray and held off a late charge from a fast closing Hilaria (Mike Stevenson) to win by 3/4's of a length in 1:52.1, which was a new seasonal mark. Firstup ($7.00) is owned by the Jesmeral Stable and is trained by Sheena Mcelhiney. Firstup The next was a condition event for 4-year-olds and under that went to After The Lovin on the strength of a late stretch drive. After The Lovin is owned by Christina Del Pozzo and is trained by Bryant Sear After The Lovin (Ron Cushing) left hard from post five and took the lead before Rockin Ellie (Bruce Ranger) became the master of fractions at the quarter. At the conclusion of a second quarter breather, Rockin Ellie was joined by Royalty Again (Drew Monti) who came alongside and prompted a brisk :27.4 third panel. At the top of the stretch Hereslooknatyou N (Mitchell Cushing) joined the fray three deep and After The Lovin came off the pylons to contend. All four were then a length apart across the track before After The Lovin shot through like a bullet and got the nod at the wire in 1:53.4, which was a new lifetime mark. After The Lovin ($8.20) is owned by Christina Del Pozzo and is trained by Bryant Sears. Mitchell Cushing and Nick Graffam both posted driving doubles along with trainer Mike Girouard, who also scored two wins. Racing resumes at Plainridge Park on Friday (Aug. 28) with post time at 4 p.m.   By Tim Bojarski, for the Standardbred Owners of Massachusetts
