In a massive victory for the industry, the Supreme Court has dismissed the long-running action against Harness Racing New South Wales. Earlier today Justice Adamson handed down her decision relating to the case instigated by horsemen Neil Day and Dean McDowell opposing the governing body. (Court's decision here) While the situation has been viewed mainly as a cobalt issue, the broader ramifications could have disastrous for the industry had Day and McDowell been triumphant. In fact, success would have forced the sport to shut down according to HRNSW Manager of Integrity, Reid Sanders. As part of their argument against their bans in relation to presenting horses with levels of cobalt above the accepted threshold, Day and McDowell challenged several rules. The rules included HRNSW’s right to issue – or cancel – licences and enforce drug related regulations. Basically, a loss by HRNSW would have meant participants had no boundaries in relation to drugs or tactics…a literal free-for-all! “This is a big win for the industry in relation to regulation and control,” Sanders said. “It was a very broad attack on several rules and our right to enforce them. “If they were successful, harness racing may have ceased to exist as we would be unable to enforce any rules. “The case wasn’t just about cobalt, it was about drug rules as a whole and Harness Racing New South Wales’ right to licence people, which makes for no regulation at all.” Although the industry has been vindicated, the financial cost is still a burden the governing body will have to bare. “It has been a costly hearing as we put together a very strong legal team,” Sanders declared. “Although we have been awarded costs, you never get it all back, only a percentage.” Day and McDowell were initially stood down by HRNSW last April after representatives from their stables returned tests above the cobalt threshold. Day’s Benzi Marsh was swabbed after its success in the Final Goulburn Soldiers Club Goulburn Championship at Goulburn on February 24, 2014. McDowell’s pair Chevals Charlie and Twilight Dancer were tested following victories at Bankstown on February 28, 2014. HRNSW will now continue with its inquiries into the matters involving Day and McDowell. In an unrelated matter, Harness Racing Australia has issued a statement relating to a national level for cobalt. At yesterday’s Annual General Meeting, members unanimously adopted the threshold for “cobalt at a concentration at or below 200 micrograms per litre of in urine.” “Matters of integrity are of paramount importance for public confidence in our industry,” HRA chairman Geoff Want declared. “While it may only be a small number of people who try to cheat the system and participate in fraudulent practices, we will continue to do all we can to ensure the integrity system works and the playing field is level.” Industry rules relating to race day testing are dealt with in AHRR 188A(1) which sets out prohibited substances, while 188A(2) sets out exceptions to sub-rule 1.  The cobalt threshold is now defined as follows:   188A(2)(k) Cobalt at a concentration at or below 200 micrograms per litre of in urine.

Goulburn harness racing trainer David Hewitt added his name to the Canola Cup honour roll by taking out Eugowra's feature with Holm Three.  Hewitt joins his brother Bernie and brother-in-law Neil Day on the list to continue a family tradition. “It was a great thrill to win the race with Holm Three,” Hewitt declared. “The Canola Cup was never a race I really considered aiming for when I was training at Crookwell because it was so early in the season and the heat and Final use to be on the same weekend. “Because of those factors in the past the horses had to be rock hard fit, but now with the heat and Final a week apart, it is a bit easier on the horses and when Holm Three arrived from New Zealand recently I thought it would be a good option for her.” Holm Three led throughout from her front row draw, with Hewitt confident the daughter of Mach Three will remain competitive as she races her way through the grades. “The logical plan for her looks to be a Menangle Country Series,” Hewitt said “I think she is going to be a good chance in one of those because she is just so fast early and can put herself in the right spot. “We took the option of handing up in the heat because she hadn’t been with us for very long and we were still learning with her, but with that run under her belt, I was happy to go for an all the way win on Monday." Hewitt’s son Brad drove Holm Three in the heat, but partnered Luksam in the decider. “The boys were pretty keen for me to drive her in the Final and I was happy with that, because while I am not driving as much as I used, to I like to keep my hand in,” Hewitt explained. “Brad trains Luksam, so he had to drive him in the Final and he did a good job to finish second.” GREG HAYES

Goulburn harness racing trainer Brad Hewitt drove two Canola Cup heat winners at Eugowra last weekend and believes one of the pair will prove very hard to beat in Monday’s $20,000 Final.  Hewitt is the trainer of Luksam, which he will drive him in the decider, while his father David will partner former kiwi trained mare Holm Three. “Luksam has drawn the back row and Holm Three will start off the front, so she is probably the better chance just because of the barriers,” Hewitt said. “Luksam was only having his second run back from a very long break. First-up he was a little bit disappointing after trialling well, but he travelled to Bathurst by himself and was really nervy when he arrived.” After disappointing Luksam was sent back to the trials, and after a strong performance at Menangle, Hewitt was expecting a better performance. “The Menangle trial was really good, but I still didn’t think he could beat Karloo Ten Seventy on Sunday,” Hewitt said. “When he got his chance in the straight he finished it off really nicely. “In the Final if they go too slow he’s got enough ability that I have the option of putting him into the race, but that will all depend on how everything unfolds.” Holm Three has only been in Australia a short time and really impressed with a strong performance. “We didn’t really know what to expect because she had only been in Australia for two and a half weeks, but she was forced to work very hard for the first part of the race and then relaxed, so I think she is going to win more races,” Hewitt said. “New Zealand race caller Mark McNamara told us about her when she was racing over there. “He sends us a few names every now and then and we liked her so a few owners stepped up and bought her.” GREG HAYES

It is all systems go as the countdown begins to the October 19 Grand Opening of the Bathurst complex, which will send harness racing into a new era. The Mount Panorama project began in August 2013, and although there were construction delays with wet weather, it has been a fairly smooth operation. More than 20 horses went through their paces on the new surface yesterday, with nothing but praise for the circuit. “I spoke with many of the trainers and drivers and all of them gave it the thumbs up,” said Bathurst CEO Danny Dwyer. “Like any new track, it will need a settling in period, but we are more than happy with where it is at, it’s quite advanced. “There were three workouts and the faster horses came home in 58.8 seconds, which is a great indicator for fast times moving forward. I must commend Harness Racing NSW and Bathurst Regional Council for their ongoing support.” Minister for Gaming and Racing, Troy Grant, a self-confessed harness racing fan, will be a special guest at the opening along with local member Paul Toole and Bathurst Mayor Gary Rush. The club will conduct official trials next Tuesday and again on Monday, October 13.  A lead in meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 15 before the ‘big dance’ four days later. HRNSW Media

Friday night’s Yirribee Stud Wagga harness racing meeting is expected to be a grand affair, with more races on the program than ever before. The meeting will see an increase of almost 50 horses and three races to the corresponding date last year. Two $8000 races, plus the bonus of free stallion services to Million Dollar Cam (2), Lombo Pocket Watch (2) and Caribbean Blaster (1), have also add extra depth and quality to the meeting. “Last year, a number of the fields were only small in number with seven and eight runners, but there are full fields with reserves in most races on Friday,” club chief executive Graeme White said. “There is $64,000 in prize money, plus the stallion services for five of the races are worth an additional $13,750. “The number of horses racing in the region at present has stayed far higher than previous years which is reflected in Friday night’s fields.” The feature races are the Ian Walsh Memorial and Lombo La Fe Fe Stakes, which are worth $8000. Leading Riverina trainer Shaun Snudden will have dual representation in the Ian Walsh Memorial in the shape recent Wagga winners Horizon Guy and Upsy Daisy. The state’s top trainer Steve Turnbull and his reinswoman-daughter Amanda will make the trip with Lagoon Stride, which has drawn well in barrier three. On her first night of race driving, Ellen Bartley will partner Its Girl Power from an inside draw. The in-form Timely Loch for Norm Diebert junior and the talented Live Christian add to the quality line-up. The Lombo La Fe Fe Stakes - for fillies and mares - is also an intriguing affair with Areyoutalkingtome shooting for three straight wins for trainer Kim Hillier. HRNSW Media

Just two two weeks into the harness racing season and reinsman Murray Sullivan is sitting second on the New South Wales drivers’ premiership. While also balancing his full-time job, Sullivan has been busy travelling across the state to net eight wins from 14 outings. Thrilled with his haul, Sullivan is hoping the ‘hot streak’ can continue. “Jason Gaffney and I work the horses together…there are 15 horses in work and we both find time to work full time jobs as well,” Sullivan said. “I work for my Uncle, who has a smallgoods business, and he’s pretty understanding when I have to attend race meetings during the week. It is a bit tougher for Jason because he is a concreter and it can get hard for him to get time off during the week.” Gaffney trained two winners at last weekend’s Parkes meeting, with Sullivan training another and driving all the three. “It has been a great start for us this season and I put it down to the new grading system,” Sullivan said. “I won a race with Battleliner on Sunday, he won two in the space of 10 days and I think without the new system he would have been struggling to win another race." “Last season I didn’t have many starters as a trainer, but in the new season I have had three starters for three winners, so it has been a great start all around.” Sullivan made a recent trip to Wagga in an attempt to qualify runners for the Tabcorp Park Menangle Country Finals. “We normally don’t travel all the way to Wagga, but Three Point Turn went down to try and qualify for the Final and he did a really good job running second in the heat,” Sullivan said. “I also drove the other heat winner at Wagga when Cankickatarget won for the Hutchings stable.” HRNSW Media

Harness Racing New South Wales has announced the recently purchased land at Tamworth has been re-zoned to a Tourism Zone. The objectives of the Tourism Zone are to provide a variety of tourist-oriented development and related issues as well as facilitating development that recognises the unique characteristics of the nationally and regionally significant precincts that are the Australian Equine Livestock and Events Centre and the Tamworth Regional Racing Precincts. HRNSW agreed to terms of purchase for $1.35million last April, with chief executive John Dumesny stating the deal is a major breakthrough for the north-west region of the industry. “The opportunities the rezoning of the Tamworth property present to the industry can deliver income streams which are non-core,” Dumesny declared. “When harness racing is required to move from the Showground there will be a new track and facilities, but there will also be ample space to develop for commercial purposes. “The zoning, which was formerly rural, allowed the board to astutely invest in the future and with the rezoning to tourism that future is assured. Ideally situated on a major transport intersection permitted uses include the likes of McDonalds or Kentucky Fried Chicken as well as service stations.” A Tourism Zone can permit with consent: Amusement centres, Animal boarding or training establishments, Boat sheds, Camping grounds, Car parks, Caravan parks, Charter and tourism boating facilities, Child care centres, Community facilities, Electricity generating works, Entertainment facilities, Environmental facilities, Food and drink premises, Function centres, Helipads, Highway service centres, Information and education facilities, Kiosks, Markets, Medical centres, Office premises, Passenger transport facilities, Recreation areas, Recreation facilities (indoor), Recreation facilities (major), Recreation facilities (outdoor), Registered clubs, Respite day care centres, Retail premises, Sewage treatment plants, Signage, Tourist and visitor accommodation, Veterinary hospitals, Water recreation structures and Water supply systems.

More than 130 guests are set to enjoy a tremendous evening’s entertainment as local harness racing stars are recognised at Wagga’s awards dinner on Saturday night. Incorporating the Riverina titles for the Trainer, Driver, Concession Driver, Horse and Juvenile of the Year, the function is always an enjoyable affair. Champion mare Frith and New South Wales Oaks winner, Sheas A Runa, will be the recipients of the top Riverina horse awards, with Major Jules claiming the Wagga Pacer of the Year crown. Talented reinsman Leigh Sutton captured the Riverina and Wagga driving premierships, while Shaun Snudden (Riverina) and Kim Hillier (Wagga) annexed the other awards. Wagga chief executive Graeme White also revealed 65 sponsors have been placed in a draw for naming rights of this season’s feature races. “Last season first-time sponsor, Ausmet Roofing, won naming rights for the Wagga Cup and there are seven new sponsors for this season,” White said. “There are other sponsors who have been with the club for many years, so who wins is all a matter of having some luck on the night.” Wagga’s racing dates for 2014/15 include the Carnival Of Cups in March, plus several Tuesday night meetings during the warmer months, which will be something different for the region. Headlining the entertainment is Australia’s leading female ventriloquist, Lindi Jane, who is bound to keep the laughs flowing on a frequent basis. Harness Racing NSW chairman Rex Horne and Wagga Mayor, Rod Kendall, will be two of the special guests. HRNSW Media

Harness Racing New South Wales (HRNSW) concluded an inquiry yesterday into results received from the Australian Government National Measurement Institute that cobalt was detected above the threshold in a sample taken from the following horse; COLIN JOHN following its win in race 7, the Reece Plumbing Pace at Wagga on May 16th. The “B” samples and associated control samples were confirmed by ChemCentre in Western Australia. Mr Stockton was found guilty of a charged pursuant to Rule 190, in that as the registered trainer of COLIN JOHN he presented that horse to race not free of the prohibited substance Cobalt below the threshold. Mr Stockton was disqualified for a period of 2 years to commence from 17 July 2014, the date upon which he was stood down. In considering penalty, Stewards were mindful of the nature of the substance, his non-admission, the level detected (810ug/L) and his personal subjective facts. Acting under the provisions of Rule 195, COLIN JOHN was disqualified as the winner from the abovementioned race. Harness Racing New South Wales

Tuesday saw the Queensland Young Guns travel to Sydney for the New South Wales leg of harness racings State of Origin Young Drivers Championship. The joint initiative between Racing Queensland and Harness Racing New South Wales was the brainchild of outgoing Albion Park Harness Racing Club Chairman Kevin Seymour AM. The group consists of 10 young trotting participants who were selected to engage in a range of programs aimed at educating the group to further their knowledge, not only in the sport but in business, presentation and media. The Young Guns selected for the initial group training are Pete McMullen, Chantal Turpin, Hayden Barnes, Amy Rees, Ryan Veivers, Narissa McMullen, Dannielle McMullen, Brittney Graham, Trent Moffat and Isobel Ross. With early starts not being a problem for this group, they gathered in the wee hours at Brisbane Airport ready to jet off to Sydney for a day full of programmed activities. Looking extremely smart in their team uniform, the professional look the team displayed was a credit to all. Arriving in Sydney, first stop following a trek over the Harbour Bridge was the Frenchs Forest studios of SKY Channel. The group were given a tour of the studios and were able to meet and question some of the SKY ‘stable of stars’. Narissa and Trent were then interviewed for a segment of In The Gig that aired on Tuesday night. Venturing from the North-East back to the South-West, it was all aboard the express to Menangle. Of the 10 Young Guns, 5 were selected in Queensland’s starting lineup with 1 on the ‘bench’. Unfortunately for Pete McMullen, he met the wrath of stewards at Albion Park on Saturday night, meaning Brittany Graham was called into the starting lineup. Brittany joined the other starters, Narissa McMullen, Chantal Turpin, Trent Moffat and Amy Rees to provide the Queensland team with a strong advantage in experience. The Queenslanders boasted a combined total of 739 career wins with Narissa and Chantal both having over 300 wins a piece going into the Series opener. Taking to the track in the New South Wales lineup were Kasey Hocking, Chris Geary, Kylie Barnes, Cameron Jones and Todd Prest with a combined total of 128 wins. The total lifetime winners counted for little once the on track action started, especially considering that only Chantal and Narissa had previously driven at the famed Menangle circuit. Kylie Barnes, the most experienced of the Sky Blue Brigade put on a clinic in the first 2 races to show the Maroons that the Blues would not be easy-beats on their own dirt. In cold, wet and windy conditions the first race saw two scratchings, leaving both teams one runner short with Trent Moffat and Todd Prest left to cheer from the stands. In a great finish where only 5 metres separated the field, Kylie Barnes came with a well-timed run aboard Miss Artistic Tara to score majority points over Cameron Jones. Narissa McMullen was Queensland’s first finisher, coming in third position. Heat Two saw victory once again go to the Blues and once again it was Kylie Barnes to the fore. As the field turned for home, Barnes driving the race favourite El Chango, loomed up to the leader Eagles Ace and looked to run right on by. However, Narissa McMullen driving Eagles Ace fought back, as did Bazzas Art for Chantal Turpin. As the trio drove down to the wire, El Chango packed too many guns and scored a gutsy victory for his cartel of owners. Turpin finished second with Narissa third. It was left until the last Heat for Queensland to restore some pride and Trent Moffat provided the right tonic aboard Fellas R Trouble. Leading off the barrier, “The Moff” gave no others a look in with a very controlled drive to take the field all the way in a barrier to box performance. Brittany Graham making the most of her call up to the starting lineup ran into second place with the outsider of the field Major Command to provide the quinella to Queensland. Chris Geary finished third to avoid a Queensland trifecta. The series now moves to Albion Park for the deciding three Heats on Friday and early indications see it going down to the wire, despite New South Wales holding a 17 point lead. TrotTips Michael Polster’s form assessment sees two of those heats going to Queensland. Racing Queensland
