Kjell Qvale Passes At 94 Kjell Qvale enjoyed competition and speed, whether it was a fast car, a Thoroughbred, or even a footrace. He was a star athlete in track and field at the University of Washington, when he is said to have equaled the world record for the 100-yard dash. After serving in the U.S. Navy as a pilot during World War II, he began importing sports cars ©Vassar like the MG, later had a hand in building the Laguna Seca Raceway and even raced cars in the Indianapolis 500. But horse racing is the reason so many people in the Thoroughbred world came to admire “Mr. Q” (whose name was pronounced Shell KaVAHlee). For 45 years he was a mainstay in California, racing such stakes winners as homebreds Variety Road and Variety Baby, along with their dam Variety Queen, Silveyville, Halo Folks, Tribesman, Borrego Sun and others. A member of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association since 1963, he also ran racetracks in his spare time: for 20 years he was a major investor and president of Golden Gate Fields and held a similar post at Bay Meadows for about six years.—continued at, By Ray Paulick Click here to read more Republished with from

Prepare for Breeding Stock Sales For those attending the 2013 breeding stock sales, it is worth looking at a tax incentive that may apply to purchases this year. The Expense Provision allows the purchaser to expense (write-off) all or a portion of the purchase price of a horse or horses, including broodmare prospects. This incentive can apply to a single purchase provided the horse qualifies and is placed in service in 2013. Since, like most tax provisions, there are technicalities which must be met, a purchaser who wants to use this provision should consult with their tax advisor to make sure it applies to their situation. Below are some details.

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. How does the purchaser put a broodmare in service? Read more here.

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 1)A purchaser can deduct up to $500,000 of the cost of a horse or horses purchased in 2013, provided (1) the total 6 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED WEEKLY • November 7, 2013

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.

Weekly Update YEARLING BUYERS Continued from page 6

Bonus Depreciation 2)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 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 3)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.
