HRSA is pleased to announce the introduction of a new race series to be conducted in South Australia. The TAB Graduation Championship is a restricted races series open to 4YO’s and older which, at the time they first accept for a race in the series, have not won more than three races (lifetime). Horses will compete in qualifying races commencing Saturday 15th June 2019 culminating in a final to be held on Saturday 20th July 2019 All qualifying races will be conducted for a stake of $4,000 and run over distances between 1609 metres and 1800 metres. The barrier draw for all races in the series, including the final will be preferential draw on lifetime wins. The final will be conducted for a stake $17,000 and restricted to a field limit of 11 runners plus 1 emergency. Horses which start in any of the qualifying races will receive points on the following basis.  1st – 9 points, 2nd – 7 points, 3rd – 5 points, 4th – 3 points, 5th 2 points, every other runner 1 point. Importantly this series is restricted to horses trained solely in South Australia. To be eligible to compete in the series a stable return must have been lodged with HRSA by 6th May 2019 and the horse must remain SA trained for the entirety of the series.  Horses are not required to run in all of the qualifying races. If at the time of acceptances for the Final the number of horses remaining is in excess of the starting limit, preference will be given to those horses which have accumulated the greatest number of points in the qualifying races. Therefore, the greater number of races competed in, then the greater the opportunity there is to gain points. There is no limit to how many qualifiers a horse may contest. In the event of a tie for the final position(s) in the field the total monies earned during the series will determine such position(s). Should horses remain tied after this calculation is applied then the final position(s) will be determined by ballot. There will be no Concession driver or mares’ claims permitted. The dates of the qualifying races are: Saturday 15th June 2019 Monday 17th June 2019 Saturday 22nd June 2019 Monday 24th June 2019 Saturday 29th June 2019 Monday 1st July 2019 Saturday 6th July 2019 Monday 8th July 2019 Saturday 13th July 2019 Monday 15th July 2019   The final will be held on: Saturday 20th July 2019 Note:     A horse which, subsequent to the first time they accept for a race in the series, wins any race will remain eligible for the series notwithstanding it having won more than 3 races. An example being that if a horse has won 2 races at the time of accepting for the qualifying race on 15th June and it then wins both a qualifier and another non-TAB Graduation Championship qualifier, giving the horse 4 lifetime wins, it remains eligible for the remaining qualifiers and the final. Trainers Bonus The trainer of the individual horse with the most points accumulated in the qualifying races will, provided the horse starts in the final, receive a bonus of $1,000.00  For more information on the TAB Graduation Championship please contact David Thuen, Racing Operations Manager Harness Racing SA at dthuen@saharness.org.au or on (08) 8285 0731.   HRSA

The HRSA Board have advised the SAHRC, that notwithstanding previous unproductive attempts to engage positively with the club to achieve substantive outcomes for the harness racing industry in SA, it has agreed to enter into formal mediation to resolve the many issues currently facing the club which emanate from its current, and historical poor financial performance. However, while agreeing to engage in mediation in an attempt to achieve a positive outcome for the SA harness racing industry, HRSA sees no utility into entering any mediation unless the mediation is all encompassing and addresses all the issues currently facing the club and its poor operating performance. These including: The implementation of the `Cunningham Report’ Issues surrounding the sale of a large part of the Globe Derby Park complex. The current financial status of SAHRC SAHRC’s ability to promote the sport of harness racing at Globe Derby Park. It is also HRSA’s position that if the club were to agree to HRSA’s terms of mediation, then both parties enter into a formal mediation before an experienced commercial mediator. HRSA awaits SAHRC’s response to the requests made.   HRSA Media

On Friday 29th March 2019 Harness Racing SA (HRSA) advised the Committee of the South Australian Harness Racing Club (SAHRC) that it had lost confidence in the Committee’s ability to properly oversee and administer the affairs of the SAHRC. In consequence HRSA advised the SAHRC Committee that it required their resignations by the close of business today. This deadline has come and gone however there has been no response from the SAHRC Committee, notwithstanding that a response has been provided to their members. Resultantly, as stated on Friday last, HRSA will cease programming meetings at Globe Derby Park effective Tuesday 9th April 2019. Furthermore, to progress matters to an affirmative conclusion, HRSA will assist individual club members of the SAHRC promulgate a request for a Special General Meeting of the club for the purpose of firstly, amending the SAHRC constitution to provide club members with an ability to move a motion of no confidence in the clubs management committee, which is binding and would require the Committee to resign their Management Committee positions immediately, and secondly, if passed, putting the motion to the meeting. The SAHRC President sent an information sheet to their members today in response to the HRSA Board demands of last week. The HRSA Board vehemently dispute a number of the assertions made in this communication, and some comments made which HRSA believe are defamatory. In taking the actions it has the HRSA Board recognises that there will be disruption caused to a range of industry participants, be it trainers, drivers, owners and many others, however, if the situation at the SAHRC is not resolved, and resolved quickly, then the industry will suffer further. The HRSA Board is steadfast in its resolve to drive change at SAHRC and best position both the club, and importantly the greater harness racing industry of South Australia, to meet the challenges of an ever-changing racing environment. To this end the HRSA Board has been buoyed by the substantial support received as a consequence of the actions taken, including unqualified support from the SA Harness Racing Country Clubs Association. Calendar Changes As a consequence of the suspension of racing at Globe Derby the following is the revised calendar for April. Please note: While it would have been desirable to have transferred some of the following meetings to Gawler this has not been possible due the Gawler HRC facility failing to comply with outstanding compliance and Council regulatory requirements.   Saturday 13th April – this meeting has been transferred to Strathalbyn on Friday 12th April 2019. Stakes for this meeting will be increased to recognise the loss of the Saturday meeting. Monday 15th April – transferred to Victor Harbor Saturday 20th April – the meeting scheduled for Port Pirie has been cancelled. Stakes for the Kapunda meeting to be held on Thursday 25th 2019 (ANZAC Day) will be increased to recognise the loss of the Saturday meeting. Sunday 21st April – Victor Harbor Thursday 25th April - Kapunda Saturday 27th April – will now be conducted at Port Pirie Monday 29th April – transferred to Kapunda.

The Board of Harness Racing SA (HRSA) has today advised the Committee of the South Australian Harness Racing Club (SAHRC), the principal club responsible for racing at Globe Derby Park, that it had lost confidence in the SAHRC Committee’s ability to properly oversee and administer the affairs of the club and harness racing at the states premier track. In consequence, HRSA has requested that the current SAHRC Committee resign, to be replaced by a new interim Committee to HRSA’s satisfaction. In the event that the current Committee refuse to resign by the close of business on Friday 5th April 2019, HRSA will suspend racing at the venue indefinitely, effective Tuesday 9th April 2019. The HRSA Board are particularly concerned with the direction being pursued by the SAHRC Committee over recent times through, firstly, their utilisation of HRSA’s contributions (race and meeting fees) to prop up a failing hospitality operation, being their bars and restaurant. And secondly by their promotion of the sale of the majority of club owned land to fund a highly speculative tavern venture which is proposed for club land adjacent to Port Wakefield Road. Conversely HRSA believe the proper, and more appropriate, way for monies to be spent is that they should be applied for the general betterment of harness racing’s participants, namely breeders, owners, trainers and drivers. This should be by way of stake money and improvements to both the race and training tracks. HRSA also hold significant concerns regarding the formidable operating losses reported by the club over the past decade. These total in excess of $5.5M in the period 2009 – 2018, however, even more concerning is that in the past three years alone the losses incurred exceed $2.2M. Last season the club reported an operating loss of in excess of $890,000. The escalation in the losses recorded has now reached alarmingly and unacceptable levels and they must be contained. These losses exclude the annual HRSA contribution which is in excess of $400,000 pa. Therefore, when the HRSA contributions are factored the industry losses for each of the past four years exceed $1M. While HRSA has attempted to engage with SAHRC management over recent years, particularly with respect to an improved governance and cost structure through implementation of the `Cunningham Report’, these attempts have proved frustrating and ultimately futile. It is worth noting that the key recommendation of the report was “The Harness Racing industry accepts, and as an immediate priority, works towards achieving the optimal governance arrangement for the future for Harness Racing in SA which is to have one governing and racing body and that body is HRSA” HRSA has now reached the point where it must intervene and arrest the distressing level of financial poor performance and protect the SA harness racing industry from further harm. It is HRSA’s clear view that in order to move forward there should be one body which oversees harness racing at Globe Derby Park and that this be created through HRSA and SAHRC merging as recommended in the Cunningham Report. Given the rejection of this concept by the SAHRC Committee, it is appropriate that they resign and allow HRSA and the new interim Committee to work on a merger proposal for the betterment of all stakeholders in the SA harness racing industry. It is also HRSA’s steadfast view that the monies currently utilised by the SAHRC Committee to subsidise an unprofitable bar and catering operation be directly applied for the benefit of the industry and its participants through increased stakes and updated racing and training tracks. HRSA understands that the measures announced today will cause disruption and disappointment to some, however the situation of substantive and escalating losses cannot continue and changes must be enacted to arrest the very unsatisfactory performance of the SAHRC Committee.

Effective immediately, all fields, excluding those for races prescribed in Schedule 1, will be selected on monies earned in the past five (5) starts. For horses with less than five (5) race day starts earnings will be calculated by averaging the monies earned in the starts to date and equating these to the horse having had five race starts. Horses nominated to race for the first, second and third occasion will be assured of a start, subject to the programmed race proceeding. Unless specifically stated, all fields will be selected in descending prize money order (highest earner selected first). However there will be occasions whereby specific races are selected from `bottom up’ where horses will be selected in ascending prize money won in their previous five starts. For avoidance of doubt earnings will be determined as stakes earned, including incentive starter payments, but excluding bonuses.

“SHE’S got a bit of ability” could be an understatement from trainer Greg Rogers. Registering her eighth victory from 12 starts when triumphant at Globe Derby yesterday, Kitsilano boasts an average winning margin of 30-and-a-half metres. With two seconds also to her credit, Kitsilano has been a cut above her local rivals. As such, Rogers is planning another interstate trip with the daughter of Armbro Variable – one he hopes will be blessed with better fortune than last season. During her previous Victorian campaign Kitsilano finished a handy fourth in a Vicbred heat before an unplaced effort in the Final. “She seems to handle them here alright,” Rogers said. “The next step is to take on the fillies in Victoria and see how we can go. “There is a fillies’ race in Melton in a fortnight we will head to. We might come home with our tail between legs, but you don’t know if you don’t go. “Last time she didn’t travel well, had just gotten over a cold, and everything went wrong. “For the Final we had trouble with the float, so she was on the road longer than expected and I think she’d had enough for the day by the time she raced.” Driven by Rogers’ son, Ken, during her latest win, Kitsilano was eased away from the pole to settle midfield as Lilirene led from barrier two. Angled three-wide during the middle stages, the filly dashed to the lead on her way to an effortless 13-and-a-half metre win from Naked Majesty, with Stuey D four-and-a-half metres away third in 2:03.4 over 1800 metres. “He did it very easily,” Rogers said. “Ken never moved on her or pull the plugs. “She works as good as the pacers at home, but she’s just got to take it to the races. That said, her point-to-point speed is incredible. “Ken said as soon as she was broken in she would be one out of the box and she’s just gone on from there. “At the moment it’s just about keeping her balanced in her races as she gains experience.” Harness Racing SA

OR those thinking of backing Emain Macha in Saturday night’s Italian Cup at Globe Derby here is a piece of advice – wait until his half-sister races earlier on the card. If Labella Rock wins, back Emain Macha to win, if she runs a placing, back him for a placing, if she fails, give him a miss. Trained by Greg Scholefield, the duo have raced at the same meeting four times this season – for the same result! Successful at Globe Derby, Emain Macha and Labella Rock then finished second at Shepparton before winning their next two starts, including at Victor Harbor during their most recent outing. “They just seem to be in tune with each other,” Scholefield said. “One won’t let the other get the upper hand. “To have both win on a card is one thing, but for both to also finish second on the same night as well as winning on the other nights is something different.” To be driven by Wayne Hill, Labella Rock has drawn to lead from barrier three, with the daughter of Pet Rock a $1.10 favourite against her older rivals. “I’m extremely happy with the way she has come back,” Scholefield said. “I have a reasonable opinion of her. “She got sick during her last prep and didn’t go as well as can, which is just one of those young horse things. “She has come back very well and should have a bit of a future. Long term I will be aiming her at the Oaks.” Faring slightly better in barrier two, Emain Macha is also tipped to lead throughout with Hill in the cart. As such Emain Macha has been installed a hot $1.05 favourite. “He did it as he pleased in the Victor Harbor Cup, but this will be tougher again,” Scholefield said. “From that draw he is going to be very hard to beat, but there are a number of quality horses with good form in the field. “I just hope he can keep his form up a little longer as we take aim at the South Australia Cup on February 9.”   HRSA Media

Harness Racing SA, and the entire South Australian harness racing industry are saddened at the passing over the weekend of David Jolly, one of the industries true gentlemen, and we express our deepest condolences and extend our sincere sympathies to Naomi, and David’s family at this sad time. Until very recently David was President of the SA BOTRA (Breeders, Owners, Trainers and Reinspersons Association) and was a tireless supporter of, not only that organisation, but also the greater harness racing industry in South Australia. David’s contributions were innumerable but included, for many years, providing horses for exhibitions at the Royal Adelaide Show in an effort to promote harness racing. Additionally, David was often also seen at racing events where, while he didn’t have horses involved, he would nevertheless be present to assist whoever and in whatever capacity required. David had a unique quality of being able to inject optimism into any engagement and the positivity he engendered, together with his generosity and commitment to harness racing in South Australia will be long remembered.   Harness Racing South Australia

Harness Racing SA (HRSA) advises that it has completed a review of the SA harness racing calendar and the effect the current calendar has on the overall dynamic of the industry in the state. The review concluded that the South Australian harness horse population is less than sufficient to sustain three meetings each week in the northern part of the state and resultantly, for the balance of the season, the racing calendar has been rationalised to best advantage the industry moving forward. The changes to be implemented are primarily two-fold. These being;   That only two race meetings each week will be scheduled in the northern part of the state for the majority of the year.         2.  Racing at Port Pirie will take a twelve week break from the end of June 2019 through to the last                     weekend in September 2019.   The effective outcomes of the rationalisation being that the number of meetings in the northern part of the state will be reduced to 105 per year with racing predominately being conducted on Saturday evenings and Monday afternoons. In making the changes announced today HRSA Chairman Gary Crocker stated, “the shift to two meetings during the trial period of August/September/October proved successful on a number of fronts but importantly enhanced revenues which has enabled us to increase our minimum stakes level by 20%” Mr Crocker added “we acknowledge the co-operation of the Port Pirie club in their decision to take a break over the winter months as this will enable them to race more regularly through a more defined period”. Resulting from today’s decision there have had to be adjustments to the racing calendar to ensure that all clubs are afforded the quantum of meetings relative to the race horse population. While some of these changes made effect race dates in the short-term the reality is that they nonetheless had to be made to ensure that those meetings would proceed. The revised calendar to the end of the financial year is available by clicking here.

ACE Queensland reinsman Pete McMullen hopes to reclaim his former title when he heads to Globe Derby on Saturday night. One of two Sunshine State representatives in the Australian Drivers’ Championship, McMullen captured the inaugural edition in 2014. Missing the following year’s running in Tasmania, McMullen ventured back to South Australia in 2016, but was void of luck as local reinsman Wayne Hill took top honours. “I am looking forward to getting back there,” McMullen said. “I’m definitely hoping to claim the title back and return it to Queensland." McMullen sits third in the 2018/19 Queenslasnd State Drivers' Premiership, after claiming his first metropolitan title in 17/18.  McMullen was the youngest Australian driver to reach 1000 wins and is no stranger to drivers championships and invitationals. Most recently he won the 2018 Horsham Invitation Drivers Championship in March.  “These kinds of events are always great to be a part of as you catch up with drivers you haven’t seen in a while," McMullen said.  “We have a bit of fun with it during the night, but on the track it always gets pretty serious. “The locals (in Adelaide) have got an advantage as they know the horses and the form, but in saying that, when you get a great bunch of drivers together you have to respect them all.” McMullen has driven in 11,241 starts for 1,665 wins and 2,806 placings.  He'll be joined in the series by Kiwi-turned-Queenslander Adam Sanderson, who will represent the Sunshine State for the first time.  He currently sits sixth in the statewide premiership and cracked his first 100-win season in 2017/18.  Sanderson's major wins include the 2013 Group 2 Nursery Pace 3YO Fillies Final and, back-to-back Redcliffe Gold Cups in 2016 and 2017.  HRSA

IF EVER there was a horse which is a pure case of ‘hit or miss’ it has to be Celestial Daybreak. Having his seventh start for the season, Celestial Daybreak scored at the massive odds of $125.50 on the local tote. The Shane Loone-trained gelding was $126 shot on interstate totes. A key factor to the Celestial Daybreak’s long odds is his habit of winning or finishing towards the tail of the field. Last season the son of Dawn Ofa New Day has 36 starts for six wins and no placings. From his seven outings this term Celestial Daybreak has a win, and you guessed it, no placings! “He never seems to run a placing,” Loone said. “He likes to win or do nothing. “Every time he goes around he is an outsider, which I guess is because of his racing record.” Partnered by talented concession driver Kaela Hryhorec, Celestial Daybreak settled midfield from barrier five as Fort Courage worked to the lead. Angled three-wide on the home turn Celestial Daybreak sprinted to a five-and-a-half metre win from the pacemaker, with Arambi Star four metres away third in 1:58.4 over 1800 metres. “Driving him quiet instead of charging out at the start was the key to the win,” Loone said. “His run last week was good and I felt he was in with a chance if he got the right run. “It was a perfect drive from Kaela and she got him to the line well.”   HRSA

HRSA is delighted to again be hosting the Australian Drivers Championship this coming Saturday night at Globe Derby Park, with patrons having the opportunity to witness the best drivers the industry has on offer.
