Tiz Flirtatious In Grade I Win

Governor Signs Racing Bills Gov. Jerry Brown approved a number of measures related to horse racing. One bill, by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins (D-San Diego), could put the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in the running to host the prestigious Breeders’ Cup. The measure, AB 1074, enables the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB) to divvy up the 2014 and 2015 racing dates previously allocated to Inglewood’s Betfair Hollywood Park, which is set to close in December. Del Mar, which has never hosted a Breeders’ Cup, could be poised to snag the 2015 contest. Its allotment for that year includes dates in the late-fall period when the two-day event is traditionally held. The wooing has already begun. Josh Rubenstein, the Chief Operating Officer of Del Mar, said representatives of the track had their first official meeting with the Breeders’ Cup board in June. This year’s cup will be held November 1-2 at Santa Anita Park. The Arcadia track also will host in 2014.—continued From LA

There seems to be only a head difference between the top California turf mares Tiz Flirtatious and Marketing Mix. Back in May, Marketing Mix beat Tiz Flirtatious by that margin in the grade I, $250,500 Gamely Stakes at Betfair Hollywood Park. And there was a head between the five-year-old mares in Saturday’s grade I, $250,500 Rodeo Drive Stakes at Santa Anita Park, with Tiz Flirtatious winning after a thrilling stretch run. Their third matchup of the year is expected in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf at Santa Anita on November 2. —continued www.DRF.com, By Steve Andersen PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This article has been republished with permission from www.drf.com

The statistics contained in these rankings are compiled by The Jockey Club Information Systems Inc. (TJCIS). While every effort is made to prevent errors and omissions, California Thoroughbred cannot guarantee their complete and total accuracy. A dagger (†) indicates that a stallion has been pensioned, an asterisk (*) that he has died, a dot (•) that he is now standing elsewhere, a number sign (#) that he did not stand in California in 2012 but is standing in the state in 2013, a double dagger (‡) that he is not standing in California in 2013 but will stand in the state in 2014 and in bold that he is a freshman sire. In all cases, a sire will remain in the rankings until the year after his last California foals are two-yearolds. Statistics cover racing in North America (U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico), England, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates only.

Incentives Strong For Business Investment The American Taxpayer Relief Act reinstated 50 percent bonus depreciation and increased the expense allowance to $500,000 for 2013. Both incentive programs could have important implications for purchasers of horses, farm equipment and most other depreciable property. Below is a summary of these incentives: Bonus Depreciation–allows taxpayers to write off 50 percent of the cost of new qualified depreciable property if the property is purchased and placed in service before January 1, 2014. Property is considered new if its original use commences with the taxpayer. Yearlings, for example, may qualify for this incentive. Expense Allowance – allows taxpayers to write off the cost of new or used qualified depreciable property, up to $500,000, if the property is purchased and placed in service before January 1, 2014. The expense allowance is reduced dollar for dollar once qualified investments exceed $2 million. This incentive also was made retroactive to 2012 purchases. In addition to yearlings, broodmares may qualify for this incentive. The $500,000 expense allowance and 50 percent bonus depreciation may be used together in some situations. For more information on how to best apply these incentives to your business, download this investment incentive flyer and consult a tax professional.

Tax Tips For Yearling Buyers For those attending the yearling sales, it is worth looking at the tax incentives that are available to a purchaser of a yearling this year. There are three incentive provisions which can apply: 1) the Expense Provision which allows the purchaser to expense (write-off) all or a portion of the purchase price of a horse, including yearlings; 2) Bonus Depreciation, which allows the purchaser to write-off 50 percent of the purchase price of a yearling; and 3) Three-year Depreciation on the purchase of any racehorse, including yearlings. One or even all three of these provisions can apply to a single purchase provided the horse qualifies and is placed in service in 2013. The discussion which follows is a summary of the three provisions intended to point out the potential tax benefits that might be available to a purchaser. Since, like most tax provisions, they have technicalities which must be met, a purchaser who wants to use one or more of the provisions should consult with their tax advisor to make sure the provision(s) applies to their situation. Expense Deduction – A purchaser can deduct up to $500,000 of the cost of a horse or horses purchased in 2013, provided (1) the total of all purchases of horses and other depreciable business property does not exceed $2 million and (2) the horse is placed in service by the purchaser in 2013. If the purchase exceeds $2 million, the amount that can be expensed in 2013 is reduced one dollar for each dollar the amount of such purchases exceeds $2 million. To illustrate, assume a person purchases two yearlings at the sale, one for $300,000, and one for $250,000, and made no other purchases of horses or other business property during 2013. The purchaser can expense $500,000 of the cost. The remaining $50,000 can be depreciated using one or both of the depreciation methods explained below. Note that the expense provision applies to purchases of horses of all ages and to other types of business property new or used such as tractors and other farm equipment. Also note that purchases of property used in any business of the purchaser, not just the horse business, is included in the $2 million threshold. One other restriction—the expense deduction can only be used against the aggregate taxable income derived by the purchaser from a business, any business, including compensation earned as an employee. Bonus Depreciation – This provision allows the purchaser of certain horses in 2013 to depreciate 50 percent of the cost if the horse is placed in service that year. To qualify, the

6 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED WEEKLY • October 2, 2013

original use of the horse must commence with the purchaser whether or not such use corresponds to the use of the purchaser. This means that yearlings at the sale most likely can qualify, but older horses likely will not. It has been industry practice for many years to treat young racehorses as placed in service when conditioning and training first begins. Thus, under this practice, a yearling would be placed in service when conditioning and training begins. There is no limit on the total dollar amount that can qualify for bonus deprecation provided the yearling(s) are “placed in service” in 2013. For example, if a purchaser buys and places in service ten yearlings in 2013 for a total cost of $2 million and that was the only purchase of depreciable business property that year, the purchaser could, using the expense provision, deduct $500,000 and take bonus depreciation of $750,000 (50 percent times $1.5 million). The $750,000 balance of the cost would be deducted over a three year period using the regular depreciation rules explained in the next section. Three-year Depreciation – All racehorses purchased and placed in service in 2013 can be depreciated over a three year period (four calendar years), using an accelerated rate. This means a deduction of 25 percent of the purchase price of a yearling, if neither the expense deduction, nor bonus depreciation is taken, and 50 percent of the remaining balance of the purchase price in 2014. In other words, 62.5 percent of the purchase price of the yearling can be written off in the first two years. If the expense deduction, bonus depreciation, or both are taken, 25 percent of the remaining balance after the other deduction(s) are taken can also be deducted in 2013 and 50 percent of the balance in 2014. It is noteworthy that all three of the incentives discussed above are scheduled to change next year unless Congress acts to extend or change them. The expense deduction is scheduled to go down to $25,000 next year, bonus depreciation is scheduled to expire altogether, and three-year depreciation for young race horses not over two years old when placed in service is scheduled to go back to seven years. At this point, particularly because of the discussions going on in Congress about reforming the tax code, it is hard to predict when and what Congress might do with respect to these three incentive provisions.

Horses Able To Stay Fit When Kept At Pasture There are many theories on how to best manage performance horses during periods with no forced exercise (whether after sustaining an injury or just for a rest period), and owners are often left with a dilemma: stall rest or pasture turn-out? To find the answer, a team of researchers recently completed a study evaluating how well horses maintain a certain fitness level with either pasture turnout or stall confinement. Patricia M. Graham-Thiers, PhD, and a team of Virginia Intermont College researchers assigned 16 horses in light to moderate work to one of three groups: pasture turnout (P), stalled and exercised (E), or stalled with no exercise (S). During the 14-week study, horses in the P group roamed on approximately 100 acres of pasture, while horses in the S and E groups stayed in stalls during the day and were allowed access to a one-acre paddock at night.—continued at www.theHorse.com, By Kristen M.

Horse Owners: Be Prepared For Natural Disasters Natural disasters can strike anywhere at any time, and pet owners have the added responsibility of including their animals in their emergency plans. When your pet is a horse, planning requires even more consideration, so consider these tips for protecting equine companions in the event of a disaster. Cindy Gendron, coordinator for The Homes for Horses Coalition, said, “Different types of disasters call for different responses, from evacuating your horses to keeping them safe in a barn or in a field. Once you understand your options, the next steps are developing a plan, organizing your resources and practicing and training for possible scenarios. If a disaster does strike, you’ll be ready to protect yourself and your horse.” Things which could add to the complexity of the situation and require additional planning include having exceptionally young, exceptionally old, or mobility-impaired equines; having stallions or especially high-strung horses; having a large number of horses; or being located far from a main road. Natural disasters can occur anywhere, any time. Prepare ahead and be sure to include your horses in your emergency plans.—continued at www.theHorse.com Click here to read more PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This article has been republished from www.BloodHorse.com

Our First Delight was trained by Jerry Fanning and ridden by Fernando Toro. She ran the mile in 1:36 and won by four lengths at odds of 4-5. Our First Delight was the third of 15 foals out of the The Pie King mare Delightful Pie, who also produced stakes winners Forluvofiv and Rise De Pie. The Santa Clara was Our First Delight’s fifth win in 26 starts. She won seven other strakes, placed in 11 more and finished her career with 11 wins in 59 starts and earnings of $253,500.

California Weekly Hay Report From Friday, September 27, 2013 F o r An y Q u e st i o n s O n T h i s L i st P l e a se C o n t a c t : 9 70 -3 53 -9 75 0

Compared to last week: All classes of hay traded mostly steady where comparable sales were noted. According to USDA-NASS a cool weather pattern moved into the northern part of the state with rainfall totals of over two inches across Shasta County and the Northern Sierra Nevada. This system even brought 2 to 5 inches of snowfall on the higher peaks. The Sacramento Valley also saw more than a half inch of rainfall. Further south toward the Salinas and San Joaquin Valleys rainfall totals of less than a quarter of an inch were reported. While much of the state saw precipitation the greater Southland and Inland Empire saw much dryer conditions than in the previous weeks. Wet weather and early insect problems caused many growers to delay cuttings during the 2013 growing season. Thus there is a reduction of high-test alfalfa hay available in the Northern and Central part of the state. Additionally, due to the recent rains in the Northern and Central regions along with the rains in the Southern parts of the state a few weeks ago there is an influx of rain damage hay waiting to be marketed. Trade was moderate this week across the state on good demand. All prices reported FOB at the stack or barn unless otherwise noted. Regions are defined at bottom of report.
