Ride Guide - But not for Owners
It has been a volatile couple of weeks for racing in Victoria but none more so for owners as the furore caused by the jockey inspired Ride Guide which was broadcast nationally on July 16 and just as quickly quashed by the Vic and NSW Stewards last week. Ride Guide in summary, has jockeys giving general and sometimes specific information to customers of Corporate Bookmaker Ladbrokes - for payment.
What seems to have been mainly lost in the discussions so far is the position of the Owner. Jockeys riding trackwork are paid for their services and although I am only a bush lawyer, this payment in fact creates a contract between trainer and rider and by extension because ultimately the fee is paid by the owner, the owner becomes a third party to the agreement. Like any contract between employer and employee, there is the matter of Intellectual Property gleaned during the term of the contract and the subsequent privacy of this information. We do have to acknowledge of course the difference between general and specific information being handed out but where one finishes and the other starts can be somewhat cloudy. Will this eventually just then become a thinly-veiled tipping service - giving rise to shades of the Chris Munce episode in Hong Kong of a few years ago! In the case of Ride Guide, the passing on of information to the public at large discussed between trainer and jockey is fraught with danger. The fact of life is that the Owner and Trainer pay the bills and are entitled to be protected by the law. The IP created needs to be preserved.
A major discussion point also seems to be the sale of this information via a Company set up by the Jockeys to co-ordinate the venture. Whilst no-one can have any problem with jockeys seeking to increase their income, it surely can't be done using the IP belonging in part to someone else. The Stewards have instantly taken a hard line saying among other things, that the fact that a Bookmaker is actually paying the Jockeys is a bad look for the Industry and will lead to a loss of confidence in the Industry. I would have thought this is a given. Do we need any more bad press at the moment?
This whole episode seems to have been created without due process as obviously the Racing Authorities and the Owner organisations knew nothing about it. No doubt, there is a lot of water to go under the bridge for it to go any further and probably as usual, the Legal Eagles will be the biggest winners. We would urge all owners to think about the ramifications of something like this project as it may be the embryo of other ideas that could also affect our place in the structure of the Industry.
Trent Pennuto scoops the pool at Swan Hill
A regular visitor to the Swan Hill Carnival, one of our trainers - Trent Pennuto - had a massive weekend on Saturday and Sunday. Saddling up four horses, he scored with all four including Clanbrooke's Where To Next ( Good Journey ex Race The Heart). A fantastic training effort from Trent who is based in Mornington and has been with us for the best part of a dozen years. In true trainer's style however, he rued the missed opportunities on Friday when he said his two runners 'should have won' but for pilot error. No pleasing some trainers!
Top Yearlings for Sale
Clanbrooke has a number of quality yearlings for sale. From this year's East Coast Sales, we have shares available in the following -
Street Boss Filly - this Sire has really hit his straps in the last 12 months and we are lucky to have purchased a really nice filly by him. This year he has been represented by The Quarterback - G1 VRC Newmarket S. - and the flying filly Petits Filous. The dam of our filly is the G1 placed Trinity College. A top pedigree to match the top conformation. To be trained by Mitch Beer and Max Hinton at Mornington.
Bel Esprit Filly - what can you say about a filly by the great Victorian Sire in Bel Esprit. We can't forget the near immortal Black Caviaar and this filly has Black-type all over her pedigree page. A stunning walker who will train-on into a nice three year old. Jason Warren will steer her from his near Mornington stables.
Helmet Colt - First foal of a Black-type winning mare. This colt was an outstanding type at the Sales and contrary to local opinion, they have started to show 2YO form. His first five runners in the Northern Hemisphere have resulted in 4 winners and a second. They are the figures of a first-year stallion that any stud in the world would want. This colt has thrown sharply to his sire with great markings. Mitch Beer and Max Hinton are looking forward to this bloke arriving at Mornington.
Our Horses for Sale page gives you far more detail but this trio forms the basis of this year's Clanbrooke offerings. In each of the horses, the Trainer has retained a share which has to say something about their confidence in the horses.
ReadyTo Run - Literally
Clanbrooke and MBH Racing - Mitch Beer and Max Hinton - have a very nice MORE THAN READY gelding available for immediate sale. The horse is in full work and has already won in excess of $80k.A win and second at two of his last three starts, this horse is a 'no-brainer' to return your share price quickly. For more info, contact the office.

Clanbrooke Racing Garners Owners Award
Members of the Thoroughbred Club of Australia, an association of owners throughout Australia, came together recently to celebrate the end of the 2014-145 racing season and to announce the winner of the 'Thoroughbred Club of Australia Owner of the Year Award'. That honour went to syndicator Clanbrooke Racing, headed by Dean Humphries, who will be presented with his award at a Caulfield Cup Day luncheon on-course. The award is based on each member nominating a stable of four of their horses with points accrued based on results throughout the year. Notwithstanding the achievements of their four nominated horses, statistics reveal that Clanbrooke's winning strike rate, from their entire stable, was better than every trainer in Victoria, bar one – Ciaron Maher (19.76%). During the past racing season, Clanbrooke Racing achieved an amazing strike rate with 18.7% winners and 39.6% placegetters from a total of 139 runners. Clanbrooke Racing, whose yearling purchase prices average around $30,000, rose to national prominence with $22,500 yearling buy Arapaho Miss. The daughter of Danehill Dancer won the Gr1 VRC Oaks, earning her syndicate over $710,000 in prizemoney before being sold for $600,000 as a broodmare.
