His new career has been a seamless transition into the stallion ranks, with PIERRO leading the first-season sire charts by a big margin.

Industry professionals have huge wraps on PIERRO progeny after seeing what he is producing.

Now is the best time to get into PIERRO’S progeny. His first crop sold at a premium before knowing if they could run. In 2017 they were in demand as the word was out that they were going well. Now he is Champion First Season Sire - next season will see their prices significantly higher.

With his progeny bred to be brilliant 3yo’s further Group-race wins in the Spring appear assured building upon a wonderful start to his stallion career.


GAI’s VIEWS ABOUT PEIRRO



"The brilliant racetrack career of Pierro has been well documented.

"14 starts, he never missed a place, unbeaten at 2 and he won five Group 1 races.

"The colt won over $4.5 million dollars on the track.

"What is sometimes over looked is the fact that had this stallion run for another season,
he no doubt would have made a champion middle distance horse.

"He had all the speed and power as a two-year-old but his pedigree reads as if he were
destined to become a champion at 2000m.

"Pierro’s sire line reads Lonhro, Octagonal, Zabeel, Sir Tristram. There is not a better
staying / middle distance sire line in the Southern Hemisphere.

"On his dam’s side, apart from Sadler’s Wells, all Pierro’s relations have the (IRE) suffix
after their names. This does not guarantee stamina but it certainly does help!

"Results make the pedigree and Pierro in his brief time on the track showed that a
colt who may have been purchased for a Cox Plate, could still dominate over the shorter trips.

"In his career in races under a mile Pierro beat Snitzerland, Samaready, All Too Hard,
More Joyous, Mufhasa and Rebel Dane.

"All these horses have won Group 1 races at 1400m or under; many are multiple Group 1 winners.

Gai said she “cannot wait to get the daughters of one of her best ever horses into the stable.”

ABOUT THE DAM



MAFIA MISS

A really speedy 2yo herself who went on to race with success as a 3yo.

Took on the best of the best – when competing in Stakes Races on 7 (seven) occasions.

She raced in the: Gimcrack LR, Widden LR, Silver Slipper Gr2, Sweet Embrace Gr3, Magic Night Gr2, Sires Produce Gr1, Keith Mackay LR.



Winner at 1200m

2nd AJC Gimcrack Stakes LR

2nd AJC Widden Stakes LR

4th AJC Magic Night Stakes Gr2

5th AJC Silver Slipper Stakes Gr2



Excellent Broodmare Residual Value – Upon racetrack retirement our filly will always be in demand from commercial breeding operations based upon her own wonderful black-type family and importantly the early 2yo performance of her dam MAFIA MISS.

Add in the vital component that our filly is by PIERRO a son of LONHRO making the filly totally free of DANEHILL blood.

Therefore she mates brilliantly to ALL Danehill line sires and with such a saturation of DANEHILL Sires in Australia broodmare buyers will give serious consideration to her joining their broodmare barn so she is expected to be well sought after in the broodmare sales.

Our filly has a Dynamic Sprinter / Miler’s Pedigree.

Bred on the proven ZABEEL / SUCCESS EXPRESS cross, the family consistently produces Stakes-class horses throughout her past generations, including Champion French miler and 3 time Gr1 Winner BIGSTONE; Gr3 and Magic Millions Guineas Winner PUNCH ON; Stakes Winning 2yo and Gr1 placed BLUE CLOUD; 2yo Stakes Winner BAGUE BLEUE; along with Gr2 Winners LITTLE TREASURE, MORE CHOCOLATE, RHYTHM OF LIGHT, EMPOWERING, stakes placed Batave, etc.

With our filly’s excellent conformation matching a rich black type commercial pedigree and outstanding genetic match of PIERRO over MOSSMAN delivering an A++ score, our big and strong filly has the recipe to be early and quick – allowing her to target Australia’s richest juvenile events.

* OUTSTANDING VALUE

Considering her outstanding conformation and strength combined with the
depth of the female family, her Dam's precocious speed and her pedigree genetics scoring ~ A++ ~ 2,294% this Filly was secured at a price representing to brilliant buying to our team at Dynamic.

We had valued the filly at $180,000 (+ one bid $190,000) and truly didn't think we would own her for that amount. However being Lot 1 the market is very unsure where the bidding process should begin and we thought if we were confident we might get her. The hammer fell at $120,000 that was $20,000 less than we had paid for Lot 1 the PIERRO x FAITH HILL filly. Further it represented a 33% ($60,000) discount to our market appraisal of her true commercial value.

PIERRO x MAFIA MISS Brown Filly with GAI WATERHOUSE and ADRIAN BOTT

  • What is the Share Price & ..... What will be the Ongoing Holding Costs?

    +

    The SHARE PRICE is the advertised upfront cost to purchase your ownership share (inclusive of GST) and includes the Fall Of Hammer Price and ALL COSTS specified as declared in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) to the pre-determined maturity date (normally 6 months from date of purchase).

    After the maturity date, then the ongoing Training and Holding Costs will begin.

    For a 5% Share over a 12 month period, on a worse case basis - Owners should budget to have a horse trained by a Premiership Leading Trainer at a Sydney or Melbourne Metropolitan Racetrack an average of:

    $8.20 per day = ($58.00 per week) = ($250 per month) = ($3,000 per annum)

    Should a client purchase a larger equity percentage then the costs are simply multiplied pro-rata.

    These budgeted costs make no allowance for any prizemoney won and with prizemoney at record levels, racing has never been more affordable and profitable.

  • How was the share price calculated ?

    +

    MYTH BUSTER: The Syndication Industry is regularly accused by those uneducated to the processes of the racing industry, of making a significant “MARK UP” from what we pay for a horse at the sales to the final Syndication Sale price.

    From Dynamic Syndications position, we totally reject any such false / dishonest / inaccurate / ill informed commentaries.

    FACT: 
    Dynamic Syndications are committed to FULL DISCLOSURE - TRANSPARENCY & INTEGRITY

    All shares Dynamic Syndications offer for sale to the public reflect the Purchase Price and ALL COSTS out to a Forward Date of approximately 6 months. The syndication sector of the racing industry, as required under the Corporations Act and Australian Financial Services License compliance, is the most transparent of any industry in the Southern Hemisphere.
    For each individual promotion, all costs are FULLY DISCLOSED (including our profit margin) and are attached as an annexure to the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).

    AUCTION PRICE:
    Fall of Hammer Price paid in the Auction Ring + GST

    DYNAMIC SYNDICATIONS Profit Margin is on Average 7.75% of the Share Price

    Our Gross Profit for EVERY Promotion we offer is calculated at a SET FEE of 12.5% of the Fall of Hammer Price e.g. If a horse is sold for $100,000 we charge $12,500 + GST for the promotion; e.g. $60,000 = $7,500 + GST; or $120,000 = $15,000 + GST; etc., etc.

    Therefore on the financial model above, should Dynamic Syndications purchase a horse for $100,000 in the salering, we add our set fee Profit Margin fee of $12,500 = $112,500 + GST = $123,750 divided by 20 shares = $6,187.50 (including GST) per 5% Share.

    Breakdown: Cost of Share $5,000 + Dynamic Syndications Profit  $625 +  GST $562.50 = $6,187.50

    From this position, simply ALL COSTS incurred in the process from the selection of the horse out to the set forward date are added together and divided against the 20 shares and a fixed price is determined which becomes the SYNDICATION PRICE. These costs are incurred are always FULLY DISCLOSED in the Cost Annexure attached to the PDS. Costs incurred are per the schedule below:

    NOTE: Under our current AFS License, the maximum promotion allowed to be offered to the public from any Syndication Company is $500,000 including GST.

    However under our internal structure, the maximum price we pay for any horse in any sale ring is capped at $170,000.

    Therefore $170,000 x 12.5% = $21,250 divided by 20 shares = $1,062.50 + GST

    Therefore the  MAXIMUM GROSS PROFIT  potentially available to Dynamic Syndications upon a 5% Share is  $1,062.50  from a  5% Share  priced at $13,750.

    This equals just 7.73% of the Promotion Price.


    SALE COSTS ~ VETERINARY: Veterinary work at sale complex by our contracted veterinarians, including physical inspections and X-rays, apportioned across all yearlings purchased for syndication + Endoscopic evaluation post-sale to ensure the horse’s airflow is of normal function + Blood testing post-sale for any Anabolic Androgenic Steroids on each lot purchased.

A simple telephone call to our office to arrange a suitable time would be required to organise an acceptable time.

  • How do I know if the horse I am interested in purchasing a share in is physically ok?

    +

    Our company supplies a detailed independent veterinary report on each individual horse we offer to the public.

    Each promotion we offer to the public includes has a current veterinary certificate (within 30 days) of lodgement of the documents with the Lead Regulator for Approval of the Promotion.

    Further, within the PDS we declare that should any event change the health or well-being (injury or illness) of the horse prior to the registration of the scheme with the Lead Regulator, the risk remains with the Dynamic Syndications as the promoter and the purchaser / investor shall have a full refund of their share application price paid into the trust account.

    This veterinary report will always include a review of the horse's:

    * Physical conformation and size,
    * A review of the Full Set of 36 X-rays,
    * A Post-Sale Endoscopic Evaluation and
    * A blood test checking against the use of Anabolic Steroids or Agents in the preparation of the yearling for the sales.

  • Why do some syndicators offer shares without an x-ray report but most do? Are x-rays important?

    +

    Firstly, Dynamic Syndications only purchase horses for syndication that have been passed by our veterinarian as suitable for purchase with no significant findings noted on any of the 36 X-rays which are read.

    X-ray reports are available on 99.99% of quality yearlings offered for sale at major sales.

    They are a valuable tool available to be used to determine the suitability of a yearling as a candidate for purchase.

    The average cost to having a set of X-rays is only $165.

    It is a Due Diligence / Quality Assurance issue. As a promoter of shares to the public, we would never promote a horse with any issues that are likely to inhibit the racing career of a horse. Whilst there is always an exception to the rule and a small number of horses may race successfully where major defects are visible on X-ray’s, there is a golden rule – If in Doubt – Rule it out!

    Would you buy a house without a building and pest report? Well it’s the same principal. Some horses are the price of houses and at every sale inexperienced / amateur buyers, irresponsible participants, unscrupulous dealers, lazy or unfinancial trainers and a host of others step forward and buy horses that on X-ray have issues that are highly likely to prevent the horse making a successful racehorse. Then those horses are on-sold to the unsuspecting public. Lot’s of money is exchanged on a horse that has little to no hope making the grade.

    We know trainers can break down sound horses – They don’t need to start with a problem. So why risk it?

    As the saying goes: If it sounds to good to be true – It is ! Quality horses cost a lot to buy. There are a lot of professional buyers at the sales who are experienced horsemen and women. However none have X-ray vision. If a well bred, well conformed athletic horse with a commercial pedigree can be purchased well below market value, then as a potential investor serious questions and hesitation should apply.

    There will always be salering bargains, however overall they are hard to find. Smart operators and professional syndicators know the marketplace values.

    As a potential buyer of a share in any horse, read the veterinarian report and be satisfied the horse had X-rays available and they were read at the sale and the horse passed suitable for purchase,

    Always be careful. If there are no X-rays available – ask why? Has someone got something to hide?

    Even if  X-rays were not available from the vendor at the yearling sale, the promoter should themselves arrange to have a set of X-rays taken to ensure potential investors are not disadvantaged. That's due diligence.

    Comment: Always compare and ensure what you are actually getting for your money – do your homework and you will enjoy the experience of racehorse ownership.

  • Insurance
    +

    Promoters are not considered insurance agents under the Act. Our Share Price includes insurance from the fall of the hammer for a finite period. In most circumstances, that date is through to 1st November in the year of purchase of the yearling.

    On this date, each shareholder may individually choose to re-insure their share at their own expense should they wish to do so.

    Owners are under no obligation to re-insure. Some owners decide to re-insure, some owners choose not to re-insure. It is a matter of personal preference.

    Dynamic Syndications always recommend that our owners consider their personal position and if appropriate, we do recommend that clients re-insure.

    Owners should budget approximately 4% of the insured value as the anticipated annual premium. For example, if the insured value of your 5% share was $8,000 then the premium would be approximately $320.00.

    The promoter does not act as an insurance agent but is able to put individual shareholders in contact with insurance providers.

    On behalf of our owners, if requested we will complete and forward all necessary documentation to the relevant insurance provider.

    Dynamic Syndications Managing Director has had business dealings with LOGAN LIVESTOCK INSURANCE since 1986. At our request, Logan's will contact each owner directly to determine your preferences. Owners are under no obligation to use the recommended insurance provider.

    Clients are free to use the insurance provider of their choice.

    A


    Acceptor:
    A horse that has been declared by the owner or trainer to run in a race.

    Age of Horse: Race horses all celebrate their birthdays on the same day. This makes it easier to keep track of breeding and records.
    In the southern hemisphere (Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore) horses celebrate their birthday on the 1st of August each year.
    In the northern hemisphere (United Kingdom, Ireland, France, USA and Canada) horses celebrate their birthday on the 1st of January each year.

    Also Ran: A horse who finishes out of the money.

    Anterior: Towards the front.

    Apprentice - Junior jockey indentured to a trainer for a four year apprenticeship. An apprentice can claim a reduction of up to 4kgs in the weight carried by the horse. As the jockey wins more races the amount they can claim is reduced. Claim appears next to their name in the racing guides (e.g. 1.5kg)

    Apprentice Claim: Weight concession to an apprentice rider.

    Approximates: The approximate tote odds on offer before the final pool is closed.

    Articular cartilage: Cartilage that covers the ends of bones where they meet in a joint.

  • Am I joining a partnership or syndicate? ..... What is the difference?

    +

    The most common forms of ownership of thoroughbred racehorses are: Co-ownership or Partnership, (often referred to as a "Syndicate" of owners).

    Legal advice is now advocating “Co-ownership” of racehorses as distinct from a racing “Partnership” as the preferred ownership structure where there are multiple shareholders (ownership arrangements) of horses.  The main reasons for this advice is the “joint and several” liability associated with racing partnerships which do not affect “co-ownerships” and also various tax advantages associated with co-ownership over a partnership.

    Therefore Dynamic Syndications only promote 20 share “Co-ownership” horses.

    Why 20 Shares ?

    Under the Australian Rules of Racing the industry allows up to 20 shares in a racehorse.

    As of 1st January 2017, ASIC has allowed an exemption where you may now have up to a maximum 50 participants (owners) who between them, own these 20 shares in any publicly promoted horse.

    Therefore co-ownership is no longer restricted to one owner per 5% share. Two (2) or more people many join together to purchase a 5% share between them in a syndicate arrangement.

    The obligation is on the promoter to ensure that at all times, the total promotion of 20 shares does not exceed a total of 50 people.


    What is Co-ownership?


    This term is used to describe the legal relationship between various multiple shareholders who each own an equity proportion of the horse.  Where the relationship between the various multiple owners is one of co-ownership, each co-owner (shareholder) will be entitled to receive directly their proportion of the net prizemoney (if any) won by the horse and will also be liable for their proportion of costs associated with maintaining and racing the horse.  Under co-ownership, each owner is only liable for their proportion of costs associated with maintaining and racing the horse. Co-owners are not "jointly" and "severally" liable for 100% of the costs should other owners default. The multiple owners’ interests in each horse as per the Racing Syndicate Deed are managed by Dynamic Syndications.

    What is a Racing Partnership?

    This term is used to describe the legal relation between various persons who collectively agree to form a partnership for the purpose of owning a racing a racehorse. The horse under this arrangement becomes the partnerships property and each owner will be beneficially entitled to their proportion of partnership income earned from racing the horse and will be liable to contribute to the partnership, an amount equivalent to their proportion of costs associated with maintaining and racing the horse.  The horse will always be owned by the partnership and not by the individual owners directly and “all” of the partners will be liable "collectively" for the debts of the partnership. Under the Australian Rules of Racing you may only have between 1-20 OWNERS of a horse. From a legal perspective, you have a Partnership or a Co-ownership. Dynamic Syndications create 20 share Co-ownership agreements.

    What is a Racing Syndicate?


    Should 2 - 20 people combine to buy one or more share/s in a racehorse, this situation is referred to as a "Racing Syndicate". Whilst all syndicate owners are registered with the Racing Authority, under the Australian Rules of Racing, individual syndicate members with less than a 5% equity shares are not permitted to receive individual OWNER privileges. However for that Racing Syndicate, the Syndicate name appears in the racebook and the Manager of the Syndicate receives the owners entitlement.

    At Dynamic Syndications we arrange 20 share CO-OWNERSHIPS which attract FULL OWNERS PRIVILEGES.

    We also assist our owners in the creation of syndicates for multiple owners to join together to purchase a share in any of our promotions.





  • Am I locked into the Share as a Co-Owner?

    +

    No.

    In any racing partnership created by Dynamic Syndications - you own your 5% share.

    It’s not a lease, nor a fixed term contract. It’s a re-saleable asset. In reality, you have title to the share in the horse until it passes away from old age or you sell the share (whichever comes first).

    You can offer your share for sale at any stage.

    However, for avoidance of any doubt: There will be no ready market for the Shares.

    Neither the Syndicate Manager nor the Racing Manager will be obliged to sell a Share on behalf of an Owner.

    Each Owner should consider the acquisition of a Share as a long term investment for the life of the Syndicate.


    Fluctuations in the value and sale price of Shares should be anticipated.  Factors which will influence both the value and sale price of the Shares include, without limitation, the following:

    (a)    the skill and expertise of the individuals engaged to manage, maintain and market the Horse, as well as the manner in which
            these functions are carried out;

    (b)    the race performances of the Horse;

    (c)    the Horse may die or its value may be diminished as a consequence of accident, injury, contraction of disease or natural cause;

    (d)    the level of demand for horses of equivalent calibre both at public auction and by private treaty;

    (e)    the level of supply of horses of equivalent calibre both at public auction and by private treaty;

    (f)    any change in the current conditions affecting investment in the thoroughbred horse industry, including level of prize money and taxation
            benefits available to breeders;

    (g)    changing conditions within the Australian economy generally; and

    (h)    the price which buyers at public auction or by private treaty are willing to pay either for the Horse, or Shares in the Horse,
            if offered for sale, may not reflect either the purchase price paid by the Offeror for the Horse or the sale price of the Shares offered
            under this PDS.


    If I want out of the horse and can't find a buyer - can I give the share away?

    NO (but in reality = YES)

    The technical reason behind the NO answer is that there is a liability of debt being incurred on the horse on a daily basis which must be met 100%.

    Each shareholder is liable for their share of the expenses.

    HOWEVER in 99% of circumstances one of the other co-owners should/would agree to pick up the share.

    Under the Racing Syndicate Deed there is a pre-emptive rights clause that ensures current co-owners have first right of refusal so are offered the share through Dynamic Syndications as the Administration Manager to the promotion.

    Dynamic Syndications will assist facilitate the disposal of the share wherever possible.



  • What obligations am I under when I agree to become a Co-Owner in the horse?

    +

    You are contractually obligated to meet your percentage share of the expenses incurred by the horse throughout its racing and breeding career, whilst you remain the owner of that share.

    During its racing career we estimate a budget  $58.00 per week, (equivalent to  $8.20 per day) over 12 months, on a worse case basis should meet all expenses.

  • If I want out - how do I get out?  & ..... What will my share be worth?
    +


    A SHARE IN A RACEHORSE IS A TRADABLE COMMODITY


    However, it should be viewed as if selling a house or car. It may take some time until a buyer can be found. Seldom is a buyer immediately available.

    Under Australian Partnership Law, there are various mechanisms in place to dispose of share. In all Dynamic Syndications promoted horses we have a specific Racing Syndicate Deed which explains the process involved.

    We require the co-owner wishing to sell their share to contact the Administration Manager (Dynamic Syndications) and then you as the vendor will need to arrange for an independent valuation from one of the thoroughbred Auction Houses. Then under a pre-emptive rights provision, you put the share up for sale to the other partners first.

    During this period the seller may also attempt to find a buyer however existing owners and the trainer have a pre-emptive right to the share.

    Any new co-owner must agree to the Terms of the PDS and Racing Syndicate Deed before the transaction can proceed.

    Basically, co-owners want to sell their share for a couple of main reasons:

    (a) Change in personal circumstances – e.g. Financial Hardship (bankruptcy, loss of job, etc.), change of Marital Status, Overseas re-locations, etc. or
    (b) The horse is not showing enough promise as a racing prospect.

    In part (a) above, if the horse is showing racing promise, it is never difficult to find a buyer from within the existing partnership structure. Should the horse not be showing enough ability then this relocates the situation into clause (b).

    The clause (b) situation is unfortunately encountered in horses through injury, illness or lack of ability. They fail to reach their owners dreams. Should this be the case, the Racing Manager and the Administration Manager shall call a meeting or make formal contact with all partners with the view of dissolving the partnership. Should this be decided upon by a vote of the majority, then the preferential way of disposal of a horse is to sell it at a tried horse public auctions which are conducted each quarter at the Magic Millions or William Inglis sale yards.

    Also Private Treaty sales may in rare occasions be negotiated.


    WHAT WILL MY SHARE BE WORTH ?


    Values swing wildly during a horse’s racing and breeding career.

    This valuation swing is based around success.

    In essence, a share in a horse represents Muscle, Bone and Earning Potential.

    As exposed form and / or age take effect, the value will increase or decrease accordingly.

    Dynamic Syndications Director and Responsible Officer is a longstanding member of the Bloodstock Agents Federation of Australia.

    He will have an accurate assessment to what the horse is worth.

    We require co-owners looking to sell their share to obtain an independent market appraisal from either auction house (Magic Millions or William Inglis), prior to offering any share for sale.



  • Management Fees - Why do I pay them & ..... Do I get Bang for Buck?
    +

    Information About Management Fees

    Professional Licensed Promoters include Management Fees in the Product Disclosure Statement for the day to day Management of the horse throughout its Racing Career.

    Management of a horse by a Promoter is considered important to most if not all investors, as certain Promoters may have extensive experience in the industry.

    For example Dynamic Syndications Managing Director has been an active and independent racing industry participant, forging a career as a Bloodstock Agent and Syndicator since 1984.

    Investors should consider the monthly management service and fee as detailed in the Product Disclosure Statement (and Racing Syndicate Deed) for the services provided and ask any questions of the Promoter after reading the detailed information set out below:

    Investors should note that under the agreement to provide a management service, it’s only for the racing career of the horse until the co-ownership of the horse is dissolved upon racetrack retirement and does not extend beyond this into its breeding career (if applicable).

We watch the race with our Owners and post-race include you in the inner sanctum to hear the report directly from the jockey and then, we attend the post-race rooms with our owners to watch replays and explain the how the race unfolded.

    * We escort our Owners to the area to lead your horse back to the Winners Circle for feature race wins.

    * We ensure as an Owner you and your guests, join the horse, the trainer and fellow owners in the Winner's Circle and get your photos taken everytime you win – wherever your win maybe !

    * We have organised a Dynamic Syndications group discount with Bradley Photographers, the NSW based racetrack photographer, for our Owners to order their framed winners photo.

    * We represent ALL OWNERS should your horse be involved in a Protest Hearing after a race. Dynamic Syndications Managing Director has been a continual Racehorse Owner since 1981 and held a Racing NSW Trainers Licence in the SERA. We are well placed to deliver an informed debate on behalf of our Owners to any inquiry. This can be vitally important as many thousands of dollars rests on the results.

    A working example was when our syndicated horse HONOR IN WAR finished 2nd in the AJC VILLIERS Stakes Gr2 behind TAKEOVER TARGET. We lodged an objection and put forward our opinion to the Stewards. Our protest was upheld and the race result was corrected – We WON !

    Another working example from the opposite position was when we were first past the post with our horse MIDNIGHT AT ASCOT in the Magic Millions Country Cup on Magic Millions Day.

    We were subject to a protest by the runner up where that horse’s rider said our horse interfered with his mount over the final 200m. On behalf of our owners we put forward our view that the interference claim was caused in the most part by the Runner-up. The protest was dismissed and we retained the race.

    Our experiences in the Thoroughbred Industry with our Managing Director being a constant Racehorse Owner for over 35 years, having been a racehorse trainer and working hand in glove with the Australian Rules of Racing with respect to both racing and compliance, cannot be underestimated as an important asset for your horse.

    * We assist all suppliers of the services to your horse with their accounts processes.

       brought back in after 8 weeks by a stables administration error or not forgotten and still in the paddock after

This ensures “your horse will never be lost in the system.” We work together with the trainer in the management of the horse to ensure every racing opportunity is identified and made available to your horse.

    Our industry is one where goals and dreams change daily, because we are working with living animal that can’t communicate and in racing we are subject to the weather, we are not working with a machine. We are required to be flexible and have various stepping stones as alternatives, to give your horse every opportunity to succeed.

    * We handle the jockey bookings in most circumstances in consultation with the Trainer.

    * We work directly with our Veterinarians ensuring wherever possible, preventative measures are in place to limit the risk of severe injury. Also to ensure the best rest and recovery practices are maintained and delivered.

    The Fee is capped at 2 horses.

    Owners with shares in 3 or more horses with Dynamic Syndications will only pay the costs to the maximum threshold for 2 horses = $150.00 including GST



  • How to Read and Understand a Horse Sale Catalogue Pedigree Page

    +


    The catalogue is the book which outlines in written format each horse in a sale.

    Each page in the catalogue describes a different horse and their pedigree (family ancestry tree).

    Each thoroughbred pedigree concentrates on the female family not the male line.

    Why?
    Because a mare can only produce one foal per year, whilst a Sire could cover up to 250 mares in a year. Therefore it’s the mares’ families where the commercial value of a young thoroughbred is realised.

    Arguably the most important indicator for commercial value are twofold: The commercial demand of the Sire (Service Fee and Racetrack success of his progeny) and BLACK-TYPE.

    What is BLACK-TYPE?

    It’s the common industry term used to describe Bold Print on the catalogue page.

    When a horse Wins a Stakes Race (Group 1, Group 2, Group 3 and Listed Race) the horse’s name is recorded in BOLD UPPERCASE.

    If a horse was placed 2nd or 3rd in one of these Stakes Races the horse’s name is recorded in BOLD LOWERCASE. If a horse runs 4th in one of these races, no bold type is added to the horse’s name however the race is recorded on the page the 4th is in bold.

    Simply the more BOLD print (BLACK-TYPE) on the catalogue page equals the more high quality horses in the female family. As a flow on, the more high quality horses the more commercially appealing the horse is to the market.

    A pedigree provides extensive details about the relatives of each yearling offered (e.g. how many foals / winners the dam has produced, the race performances of each dam and their offspring).

    All catalogue pages have certain structural similarities.

    Horses appear in the catalogue and through the sales ring in Lot number order, beginning with Lot 1.

    In the high majority of cases, Lot numbers in a sale run in the alphabetical order of the 1st Dam (mother’s) name. The catalogue starts with a random letter of the alphabet and rolls through in alphabetical order.

    Each horse actually wears this Lot number as a sticker placed on its hips to identify it as the correct lot being offered in the sale ring. 

    To familiarise yourself to the page layout, from top to bottom.

    The majority of the information on each catalogue page in the sale of yearlings, 2-year-olds, horses in training, tried horses, weanlings and breeding stock, pertains to the dam's side (mother's / female’s) side of the family: (1st dam, 2nd dam, 3rd dam, 4th dam, etc.).

    The first dam is the (mother) of the horse being sold

    The second dam is the grand-dam (grandmother)

    The third dam is the next generation. (Great-grandmother)

    The fourth dam is the next generation (Great, Great-grandmother)


    Other information contained on the page, from top to bottom such as:

    Lot Number Assignment

    Name of Vendor

    Where the horse is located at the sales complex, (Stable Number and Box Number Assignment)

    Colour/Sex and Foaling Date of the horse

    Four generation tabulated pedigree

    Sire Information: Delivered in Short Form including: Synopsis of the sire's race record (including honours he may have earned) and highlights of his career as a stallion.

    Female Family: Information about successful members of the horse's female family.

The Gai Waterhouse stable at Randwick Trackwork


GAI is warmly welcomed as aVital Member
of the
DYNAMIC SYNDICATIONS Racing Team.




Alan Jones, Sydney’s influential broadcaster, paid Gai the ultimate accolade recently when he said:

"She's it. She's racing, the allure, the glamour, the public face of racing."


To accurately describe the Hall Of Fame - Champion Trainer & Australia’s First Lady of Racing by definition:


  

“Positive in attitude and full of energy and new ideas.”

“Characterised by energy or effective action"

"Vigorously active; energetic.”


THAT'S DYNAMIC ! & THAT'S GAI !


Therefore it’s a natural evolution that Gai Waterhouse (a household name, Champion Trainer and Australian icon), would create a "strategic alliance" with Dynamic Syndications, Australia’s highest profile and most successful syndication company.




Dean Watt, Managing Director of Dynamic Syndications said:



“For many years I felt Gai had been the missing jewel in our crown of Australia’s Leading Trainers”

But now - that’s all changed !

We announced on 30 December 2014 that starting in January 2015, we would be working in conjunction with Australia’s First Lady of Racing.

DYNAMIC were appointed as the PRIMARY SYNDICATOR to GAI WATERHOUSE RACING

We have commenced an exciting and mutually rewarding, symbiotic relationship to allow significant expansion of the Dynamic Syndications business model through the Gai Waterhouse Racing Stables, allowing us to deliver a higher number of outstanding racing opportunities to our large and ever growing owners base.



At the Sales, Team Dynamic worked in conjunction with Gai, selecting only the highest quality yearlings that we now proudly offer to our clients, to be trained exclusively from Gai's historic Tulloch Lodge.


It’s a wonderful opportunity for Dynamic Syndications to introduce our clients and friends, to the Stylish, Glamorous, Effervescent & Highly Successful World of Gai Waterhouse Racing.

About GAI
Australia’s First Lady of Racing




Gai is a phenomenon, an Australian icon, and her achievements are a testimony to what vision, planning, hard work, energy and dedication can produce.

Gai Waterhouse is the daughter of Valerie and Tommy J. Smith MBE, Australia’s All Time Champion Racehorse Trainer based at Randwick.

Gai was educated at Kincoppal-Rose Bay, then completed a Bachelor of Arts at the University of New South Wales in 1975. In the early years, Gai made a career for herself as a model and actress, which included appearing in the Australian drama The Young Doctors before moving to England and appearing in the Doctor Who story - The Invasion of Time.

Gai then returned to Australia where her passion for racing took over and served an apprenticeship under her father for fifteen years before getting her own trainer's licence issued by the Australian Jockey Club (AJC) in January 1992.

Her first winner was the horse Gifted Poet in March 1992, and her first Group One winner was Te Akau Nick in the Metropolitan Handicap in October that year. After her father, T. J. Smith became ill, he passed on the Tulloch Lodge stable to her in the 1994–95 season.

Waterhouse first achieved fame in Australia when Nothin' Leica Dane came into the Melbourne Cup in 1995 after winning the Victoria Derby three days earlier. The three-year-old colt ran second in the Melbourne Cup, a race which no three-year old had won since Skipton in 1941.

During the 1996–97 season, she had ten Group One wins and won her first Sydney premiership.

In 2001, Waterhouse trained the first, second, and third place-getters in the Golden Slipper and added the first of three successive Sydney training premierships, culminating with 156 wins in 2002/03, equalling her father's Sydney training record.

In the 2004–05 racing season, Waterhouse had eleven Group One wins and added a fifth Sydney training premiership.

As of 2015, the Waterhouse stable at Tulloch Lodge had won 134 Group One races.

Waterhouse's other successful horses include Golden Slipper winners Dance Hero, Ha Ha and Sebring. Prolific Group One winners Grand Armee, Juggler, and All Our Mob as well as two time Epsom Handicap winner Desert War.

Waterhouse won the 2010 BMW Caulfield Cup with Descarado.

On 5 November 2013, Waterhouse won her first Melbourne Cup with Fiorente

IT'S EAST TO GET INVOLVED



Every year, Gai and her selection team purchase yearlings at the major sales on behalf of existing owners and those clients experiencing ownership for the first time.

Getting involved with Gai is easy.

Through Dynamic Syndications there are various syndicate options.

Racing your own 'Dynamic Champion’ with Gai doesn’t cost a fortune.

"We've had enormous success with reasonably-priced yearlings," Gai declares.

An average price for a 5% Share is around $9,500 and all the ongoing costs average only $8.20 per day.

Your Name
as an OWNER will appear in the Racebook and you will receive Full Owners Privileges.

"Syndicates are vital because owners are the foundation of racing."

"The more people we have involved the more vibrant the industry will be," Gai rightly claims.

"Personally, I find training for a syndicate particularly rewarding because all concerned get so much enjoyment from an inherently affordable investment."

Just some of the sale ring bargains trained by Gai include: (prizemoney - cost price)

Bentley Biscuit    ($1,446,725 - $120,000)
Aqua A'more    ($1,936,850 - $350,000)
Assertive Lad    ($3.3 million - $110,000)
Dance Hero    ($3,910,440 - $90,000)
Ha Ha        ($2.9 million - $300,000)
Juggler        ($2.4 million - $38,000)
Excellerator    ($2.3 million - $50,000)

Fiery Venture    ($540,000 - $110,000)
Secret Land    ($501,000 - $50,000)


AFFORDABLE RACING

   

Despite Gai's position of leadership, her current daily rate for training is well below that recommended by the Australian Trainers' Association and below that of several of her lesser performed peers.

Gai explains: "We are results driven. We receive a percentage of prizemoney, as all trainers do and we're happy to rely on our hard work and results to keep our training fees affordable reasonable".

Owners are invoiced monthly in accordance with the percentage of the horse each owns. The itemised statement will include all expenses incurred except transportation and veterinary which are billed direct.

As a budgeted figure - Owners with a 5% share in a horse with Dynamic Syndications trained by GAI should budget an average of $8.20 per day (approximately $250 per month) over 12 months to cover all the ongoing costs.

COME AND SEE YOUR HORSE



Every Sunday, from 11 a.m. until mid-day, the stables are open for owners to inspect their horse and discuss its progress with Gai and her key staff. Stay behind for refreshments in the beautifully-appointed T J Smith Room, to celebrate victories and to meet fellow owners. Viewing can be arranged outside this time by appointment.

WORRY-FREE OWNERSHIP

For all Dynamic Syndications horse, our team works closely in conjunction with Gai. Between us we manages the horses' careers at every stage, from purchase in the sale ring and all the necessary paperwork, spelling and pre-training, right through to on-sale or retirement.



Adam Watt regularly attends trackwork with GAI and her team, to get the latest "hands-on" information flow from GAI for the Owners.

These reports are regularly recorded and forwarded to Owners immediately to give ALL our Owners the closest opportunity to be updated about their horse.

Every Tuesday morning Adam & Gai do a short video show "A DAY WITH GAI" where owners in Gai's stables get the latest update on Dynamic horses in the stable and the other trackwork stars of the morning Gai is heading towards upcoming races.

Owners receive as a minimum a weekly audio report and then as the horse progresses through too racing, these updates increase to several updates a week and Owners also receive telephone contact pre-race. You'll never miss out - It's worry-free ownership.


Adam & Dean Watt with co-trainer - ADRIAN BOTT

RACEDAY PRIVILEGES

When your horse races you are entitled to complimentary access to members' and owners' areas and to the mounting yard where you can join Gai and Team Dynamic to meet the jockey and to hear Gai & the Team discuss the race.

On various days at the major tracks Gai extends raceday hospitality to participating owners.

GAI’s VIEWS ABOUT PEIRRO



The brilliant racetrack career of Pierro has been well documented.

14 starts, he never missed a place, unbeaten at 2 and he won five Group 1 races.

The colt won over $4.5 million dollars on the track.

What is sometimes over looked is the fact that had this stallion run for another season, he no doubt would have made a champion middle distance horse.

He had all the speed and power as a two-year-old but his pedigree reads as if he were destined to become a champion at 2000m.

Pierro’s sire line reads Lonhro, Octagonal, Zabeel, Sir Tristram. There is not a better staying / middle distance sire line in the Southern Hemisphere.

On his dam’s side, apart from Sadler’s Wells, all Pierro’s relations have the (IRE) suffix after their names. This does not guarantee stamina but it certainly does help!

Results make the pedigree and Pierro in his brief time on the track showed that a colt who may have been purchased for a Cox Plate, could still dominate over the shorter trips.

In his career in races under a mile Pierro easily beat Snitzerland, Samaready, All Too Hard, More Joyous, Mufhasa and Rebel Dane.

All these horses have won Group 1 races at 1400m or under; many are multiple Group 1 winners.

Gai said she “cannot wait to get the sons and daughters of one of her best ever horses into the stable.”

 

PIERRO’S EARLY HISTORY


Pierro was bred by Darley.

He is by their champion sire Lonhro.

Pierro was famously sold by Darley as a weanling at Magic Millions breeding stock sales and then re-offered at the Gold Coast yearling sale six months later by Musk Creek Farm.

Liking what she saw, Gai Waterhouse purchased Pierro for $230,000.

To cut a long story short, he proved a superstar on the racetrack and was bought by Coolmore Stud in a multi-million dollar deal that sees him now as one of the most promising young sires in the Australia.

 

AT THE 2016 MAGIC MILLIONS SALES


Pierro the Golden Slipper winner, led the first season sire division averages this year at the 2016 Magic Millions Yearling Sales with $262,569 (37), in what was a competitive race with his former racetrack rival All Too Hard $221,842 (38) who finished 3rd, with Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom (USA) splitting the pair on the averages table $250,000 (3) however to be fair, Animal Kingdom did only have three yearlings sell.

37 Yearlings SOLD ~ Gross $9,715,000 ~ Average $262,568 ~ Median $200,000 ~
Top Price $1,500,00 (1/2 brother to Golden Slipper Winner VANCOUVER)

2 x MILLION DOLLAR BABES FOR

PIERRO AT MAGIC MILLIONS 2016

Pierro made a dream start to his career with two of his yearlings selling for $1.5 million and $1.4 million which put them in 2nd and 3rd place as the sales leading lots. In fact, only 4 yearlings sold for over $1m.

The Pierro’s were only behind the Snitzel – Mirror Mirror colt that sold for $1.6m whilst another Snitzel – Flidais colt was in 4th spot selling for $1.1m. There were 2 yearlings – a Snitzel and a Fastnet Rock which both brought $1m.

Stellar youngsters by Golden Slipper winner Pierro were headline makers at the 2016 Magic Millions Yearling Sale at the Gold Coast with a colt from Skates fetching $1.5 million and a filly from Monsoon Wedding selling for $1.4 million.

AT THE 2017 MAGIC MILLIONS SALES

Again in 2017 with his first crop just 2yo's and only having 6 runners to his resume including the brilliant Melbourne 2yo TULIP ~ Pierro was being sought after by the buyers. Many leading stables have Pierro progeny in their systems and obviously they show plenty.

The average at the Magic Millions in 2017 was a very healthy $177,222 from 27 yearlings sold with a top price this sale of $450,000.

With Dynamic Syndications taking home 3 x FANTASTIC FILLIES

Lot 1 ex FAITH HILL Sale Ring Price = $140,000

Lot 192 ex MAFIA MISS Sale Ring Price = $120,000

Lot 478 ex SPECIAL EPISODE = $80,000

Overall in 2017 PIERRO finished the sale season with an average of $151,500


With the high quality mares the sire covered in his first 3 seasons at stud his future appears assured.

On our ratings they have scaled this mating as a MAXIMUM performance indicator.


Also this has been rated a “A++” class mating with a opportunity that this mating can produce an above average racehorse when compared to the total number of horses produced by the sire to date.


This is classed as a "SUPERIOR" chance to produce an exceptional performer that may reach Black Type level. This analysis is based upon Stakes Winners from around the world that have similar pedigree construction to the way the horse we have purchased was bred.

The Profile above shows the Age and Distance range of Stakes Winners bred with this same or closely designed breeding pattern. The larger the Red Circle, the more winners in that category. 

Professional Bloodstock Consultants such as Dean Watt of Dynamic Syndications spend countless hours researching pedigrees and their genetic patterns and are aware when these same pedigree patterns have been replicated deliberately by the breeder in the hope that they may have bred a champion racehorse.

Often however the breeder has accidentally or by pure chance produced
a yearling to these patterns.

This is what sets our company at the pinnacle of its field.
KNOWLEDGE & EXPERIENCE




A PROVEN CROSS (also known as a NICK):


A NICK = SUCCESS


The GENETICS of our horse have been bred to a "PROVEN NICK"


Genetically – this horse has been bred to be a racetrack star.


When we went to the sales we were looking first and foremost for the individual.


It has to be an equine athlete.


However being aware that over 76% of Stakes Winners come from just 20% of the foal crop each year and we can identify this 20% of the foal crop as having a pedigree graded as above, so we will ONLY search for equine athletes that are based within this graded sub-group.

In an easy to understand "rule of thumb" example : there are approximately 16,000 foals born each year. On our statistical data, we identified that 20% (3,200) produce 76% of the STAKES WINNERS annually.

Therefore the opposite to the above equation is 12,800
yearlings produce just 24% of the STAKES WINNERS annually.

So, where would you rather go looking for a Stakes Winner ?

In a pool of 3,200 that produces 76% of Stakes Winners
or
in a pool of 12,800 yearlings that produces 24% of Stakes Winners.


Simply - We leave the rest for the other industry participants to consume.

Whichever set of statistical data you choose to accept and rely upon for information flow, it remains constant – Simply, on its pedigree, our horse was produced upon an exceptionally good mating with a significantly increased opportunity to produce an above average racehorse.   


Since we have matched this pedigree to our individual’s excellent conformation, size, strength and athleticism, we are convinced this horse represents a wonderful opportunity for equine investment in a quality thoroughbred.


Whilst there can never be any guarantees in thoroughbred breeding or racing and this horse would be no exception to that fact, the reality is that we would always rather start with and take advantage of sets of statistics which are weighted heavily in our favour, than to purchase another horse only bred to be average in the first instance and then, having to pray for a miracle.


It’s not pure luck or an incredible set of coincidences that produces stakes class horses. However it’s not until we do our due diligence work and we analyse the statistical data to produce these facts does the old proverbs ring true again:



 

"The apple doesn’t roll far from the tree"

"Keep drilling where oil has been found"

"Keep digging where you find gold"


Understanding this aspect of our industry is vital. That’s why we have such outstanding racetrack success year after year after year. The statistics speak for themselves. That’s why its important to deal with a Specialist !

You can't buy experience !

With over 30 years as a Bloodstock Consultant and Syndicator on his resume, Dynamic Syndications Managing Director has no peers in his industry that come close to matching resumes


10 Individual Group 1 Winners of

Comments from Australia’s Leading Yearling Judges:


Dr Tim Roberts (Veterinarian)


"You could throw a saddle on this filly tomorrow, she is born to fly and looks ready to go to the races now."
"Both her parents lined up in the first official races for 2yos and I think this filly could do the same." "Straight to Tulloch Lodge for this Filly, Gai will give her every chance. She moves beautifully over plenty of ground and really fills your eye when you look at her. She has great bone and size about her, she has terrific legs and a great body with clean x-rays. She is a ripper."




Gai Waterhouse (Trainer)

"This Filly by Pierro out of Mafia Miss is full of class – I like her enormously. I love the fact that both her parents performed tenaciously in the Breeders Plate and Gimcrack Stakes, that shows that this filly is born to get up and go. She has great bone for bulk and she walks with real purpose, I really love these Pierro’s and I think this filly is one to be very excited about. I am delighted to think the breeder has stayed in the horse for a share – I think that gives you a stamp of approval. She is class personified."
 


Dean Watt (Dynamic Syndications)

"She is a really good looking horse and she really catches your eye. I love everything about these Pierro’s, he will be a dominant Sire for many years to come. This filly is a real athlete, she looks a typical sprinter with plenty of power to drive her towards the finish line. She a terrific walk, with a big overstep and moves incredibly well across the ground. This filly will give you every chance to be up and running early, we shouldn’t have to wait long."

Above are 3 diagrams which show the correct angulation and
conformation structures of yearlings desired for racing

This FILLY met the above criteria and was considered an
EXCELLENT chance of racetrack success !!!


This filly was also on GAI's TOP LOTS LIST.



Gai felt the filly represented a wonderful opportunity to be an early coming, individual. She was an athletic, high quality filly - a genuine 2yo running type that will go on to be better again as a 3yo.

It was agreed prior to the auction that Dynamic would have first option to bid and buy the filly if she was in our budgeted range however Gai would then bid if we had reached our limit, as she was determined to see the filly at her stables - Tulloch Lodge.

 
SELECTION PROCESS


Q) So - Why did we buy her?    
A) That's easy to answer !


Pedigree:


Commencing weeks prior to attending the sale complex:

When researching which lots to inspect in the weeks prior to the sale, we look for certain genetic factors that increase the chance of the yearling being a superior athlete.


This pedigree had certain ancestor duplications which we are seeking, to give what we consider, a balanced blend of speed and endurance. Full details of the Pedigree Evaluation is located in our Pedigree Notes Section of this website.


Rating Score: A + + ~ 2,294%

This yearling represented our TOP OF THE SALE range.



Conformation:

Sale yard notes on this horse were:

"2YO TYPE - ATHLETIC - WELL BALANCED - SIZE - SUBSTANCE = YES !!!
"

Veterinarian:


Dr John Walker - Contracted Veterinarian to Dynamic Syndications

Our veterinarian Dr Tim Roberts inspected the yearling prior to purchase and believed this youngster to be a quality individual and a chance of being a successful equine athlete with no visual clinical issues likely to prevent it from reaching its racing potential.

Before purchase, the 42 X-Rays deposited in the sale ground X-Ray Repository facility were examined. There were no abnormal findings noted. The horse was approved by Dr. Roberts for Dynamic Syndications to purchase in the salering.


After purchase, an endoscopic test on the horse's airway was performed and the result was the horse had normal function.


Also a blood test was performed and revealed no abnormal findings.

Fair Market Value:
 
Considering this superb genetic pedigree, the commercial value of the sire, excellent athletic conformation and overall size, strength and scope, we rated this yearling as an "MUST HAVE" purchase.

Dean Watt as a licensed Commercial Agent and a longstanding Member of the Bloodstock Agents Federation of Australia, is approved to offer Market Appraisals as to the Commercial Valuation of thoroughbreds.


Dean Watt evaluates each yearling that passes its Veterinary Inspection as to the maximum Commercial Value after taking in such factors as:


* The Individual's Conformation
* Sales of Progeny with Similar Commercial Pedigrees by the Sire
* The Sire’s Service Fee both current and at date of Conception
* Sales of other progeny from the 1st & 2nd Dams in pedigree based upon the
   Service Fee value of the sire of that mating.
* Any Sale recorded of the Dam herself.
* Racetrack Appraisal of the immediate family (Siblings / Dam).
* Working horses in the immediate family (Likelihood of the family improving
   commercially by producing a Stakes Winner in the near future)
* Historical Sale Average of the Actual Sale being Conducted.
* Current Economic & Political environment.


A specific formula is applied to each of these variables and a figure is determined. This is our Ceiling Price. The price we are prepared to bid up to in a bidding war in the Salering. The maximum price we set at which we will withdraw from the heat of battle.

We set a strict ceiling price on all the horses that pass Veterinarian Inspection and write that figure on the Catalogue Page of each lot that passes to ensure that we do not make bidding errors during the auction.


Having completed all our Due Diligence reviews based upon Pedigree, Conformation, Veterinary Acceptance and Market Appraisal, we are always prepared to bid up to our limit to secure what we considered is an outstanding individual.


Valuation Price:

We had valued the filly at $180,000 (+ one bid $190,000) and truly didn't think we would own her for that amount. However being Lot 1 the market is very unsure where the bidding process should begin and we thought if we were confident we might get her. The hammer fell at $120,000 that was a 33% ($60,000) discount to our market appraisal of her true commercial value.

She was well above average on conformation and her pedigree was excellent.


A Pictorial Guide To Equine Conformation:

 

This diagram is offered to give clients an understanding of conformational defects that many horses possess.

It is part of our Due Diligence to reject horses with defects that are likely to increase the risk of injury or break down.

VETERINARY REPORT:


This yearling has passed a complex physical veterinary inspection by our
Contracted Veterinarian - Dr. TIM ROBERTS.


Dr. Tim Roberts - An integral part of Team Dynamic

VETERINARIAN - an interview with our contracted veterinarian Dr. TIM ROBERTS

<iframe width="420" height="345" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/cqFTOEFSRzY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Dynamic Syndications have had a long and close working relationship with
Dr. TIM ROBERTS of CENTENNIAL PARK VETERINARY PRACTICE.

Tim and Dean have developed an understanding, good working relationship and friendship.

Tim is a vital member of Team Dynamic

Tim and Dean have a Simple but Golden Rule -

"If In Doubt - Rule It Out."


We take a ZERO TOLERANCE policy on X-RAY issues.


X-RAYS being inspected in the X-Ray Repository at the Sales


We are looking for thoroughbreds with athleticism, size, strength and scope to grow into quality equine athletes.


Tim has been advising (& educating) Dean on conformation evaluation, with attention to structural defects likely to increase the risk of breakdown.

Dr. Tim Roberts is instrumental to our foundation Runners:Winners Ratio of 82.5% - which has now improved to over 90% and Runners: Prizemoney Earners over 96%.


 
Veterinarian Dr. TIM ROBERTS - Contracted Veterinarian


It’s no surprise that Dynamic Syndications has achieved outstanding success built on sound business philosophies of our 4 pillars: Transparency, Integrity, Client Service and Racetrack Results.

For over 15 years, Dean Watt has been using the services of astute Sydney based veterinarian Dr. Tim Roberts of Centennial Park Veterinary Practice.

Dean Watt and Tim Roberts have developed an intrinsic understanding of one another’s thought patterns and processes over these years.

Tim assisted Dean develop and refine his personal equine knowledge and heighten Dean’s awareness and understanding of the bio-mechanics of horse conformation and movement.

Over the past few years, Tim has also been mentoring Adam Watt to the same knowledge base, allowing Adam to develop a sharp eye for these same bio-mechanical conformation and movement factors. This has ensured the Team at Dynamic have the necessary succession plans in place and the vital skills demanded in such a complex working environment.

Tim is also acutely aware of Dean and Adam’s unwavering importance placed upon critical analysis of every horse. A strict policy is implemented of never allowing any horse which is not the “Best of the Best” to survive the saleyard selection culling process.


Dean, Tim & Adam watching a yearlings walking action

Both Tim and Dean have an excellent working relationship which has resulted in their high volume of winners.

By working so closely together, this formed the basis for Dynamic Syndications foundation Runners : Winners Ratio of 82.5% which has continued to grow and as at January 2017 sits at 91.6%.

Dr. Roberts understands the significance for Dynamic Syndications to at all times protect our Owners interests and at all times to protect our “hard won business reputation as leading racehorse syndicators,” by allowing Team Dynamic to only purchase “The Best of the Best”.

Sound, Athletic horses with “No Significant Findings” (low risk) noted on any of the 42 X-rays available for inspection in the saleyard repository and further, each horse must then pass as “Clean” on Endoscopic evaluation.

Also as a stated business practice and as it appears in our PDS, we ensure each yearling we purchase is blood tested as it leaves the salering, to ascertain that under the Australian Rules of Racing, there is no prohibited substances present.

By being extremely focused on this area of veterinary inspections at the yearling sale, our due diligence results in Dynamic Syndications Owners being offered the maximum opportunity to achieve racetrack success.

It’s Really Simple: Dr. Tim Roberts ensures we only buy Athletic, Strong, Well Grown and Sound Thoroughbreds which he has Passed Clean on X-ray, Endoscopic Evaluation and Blood Testing.

It’s not rocket science or magic – its attention to detail.  


Yearling Inspection in progress with Tim Roberts

Dr. Roberts, having been a racing surgeon for many years in South Africa, developed a keener understanding of the relationship between form and function.

That is: “What conformational defects increase the likelihood of a breakdown injury and what conformational defects have little impact?”

However, the one issue that is never questioned is X-rays. Dr. Roberts has continued to stress the importance of X-rays upon Team Dynamic for more than 15 years.

Dynamic Syndications understands and embraces Dr. Roberts Golden Rule: “IF IN DOUBT – RULE IT OUT”.

X-ray issues are never good. They usually require surgery to address the issue (if that is possible) but most certainly, it multiplies the risk of breakdown significantly and / or time lost from racetrack training through recuperation.  

You would never buy a house without getting a building and pest report done – so why would you ever buy a horse without obtaining an X-ray report and the other reports available?


We are guided by a philosophy that Racehorse Trainer’s can break down 100% sound horses – so they certainly don’t need to start off with a problem !

As humans, we are not blessed with X-ray vision, so without the assistance of an experienced veterinarian reading the X-rays, buyers of horses who do not get the X-rays checked are playing Russian roulette.  

Sadly we see at every sale – Horses with significant X-ray issues that are considered High Risk, are purchased, often for large sums, with little chance of being a racing prospect as the skeletal structures simply won’t be able to stand up to the rigours of training.

We have identified over the years that 8% (1 in 12.5 or 8 in every 100) of the horses we like on physical inspection, fail their X-ray inspections. That risk is far too high.

If there were no abnormalities present on X-ray (i.e. low risk), then Dr. Roberts will pass that yearling and it is approved for purchase.

Should we be successful and buy the horse in the Salering, each yearling is allowed to be examined immediately by endoscopic evaluation, to check its throat function and wind flow. Horses found with any significant issues here, the sale rules allow the buyer to cancel the sale. The same process with blood testing – any prohibited substances and the sale may be cancelled by the purchaser.

Dynamic Syndications as part of our Due Diligence reporting and Quality Assurance, will always supply a copy of our Veterinary Certificate for each horse on the webpage. We also attach this report as an annexure to our Product Disclosure Statement.

During the racing career of the horse, should any training or racing issues develop with the horse, we use Dr. Roberts as our independent consulting veterinarian, to act in conjunction with the stables own veterinarians, as Dynamic Syndications own expert.

Tim is on call for Team Dynamic should ever any need arise.

 



THE PROCESS:
 
* All yearlings that Dean identifies as possible purchases MUST pass a detailed physical examination by Dr ROBERTS.

* We re-inspect our selections with Dr. ROBERTS to discuss each horse on its merits.

* If a yearling passes this physical examination then at that point, Dr ROBERTS is engaged to inspect a full set of 42 x-rays held in the sale repository.

* If the yearling passes this inspection, which is only done by the fact that there were no abnormalities present of any significance (low risk) on any of the x-ray films, then the yearling is approved by Dr. Walker to Dynamic for purchase.

* After being purchased, each yearling is allowed to then be examined at the sale by an endoscope to check its throat function and windflow capabilities.

* After being purchased, each yearling is blood tested to ensure that there was no "prohibited substances present" as defined under the Australian Rules of Racing.



Photo of the endoscopic evaluation showing correct working of the upper airway.


* We advise Dr. ROBERTS of our salering successful purchases and he will then review the scoping on our behalf. If a horse should have an issue, the sale is void and the horse is returned immediately to the vendor.

* Then Dr. ROBERTS at the end of each sale, writes a Veterinary Certificate for inclusion with our Product Disclosure Statement for submission to Racing NSW or Racing Victoria as ASIC Lead Regulators, prior to the horse being allowed to be promoted to the public.


This confirms:
  • Time, Date and Place of Inspection
  • Confirmation that the horse has passed Physical Inspection
  • Confirmation that the horse has passed Stethoscope Evaluation
  • Confirmation that the horse has passed X-ray Inspections
  • Confirmation that the horse has passed Endoscopic Evaluation
  • Confirmation that the horse was recommended by Dr ROBERTS as a suitable candidate for both purchase and for insurance
  • Disclaimer ensuring clients are aware there is no potential for conflict of interests that Dr ROBERTS has no financial involvement with the horse, the promotion of the horse or with the Dynamic Syndications business.

Bob Logan commenced in insurance in the early 1960's and together with his wife Lorraine Logan founded Logans in 1965 which is now recognised around the world as a leader in the specialist equine insurance market.

Their son, Richard Logan joined the company in 1984. Richard is a fellow of the Australia & New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance and the National Insurance Brokers Association of Australia.

A specific example was when Dynamic Syndications Dual Gr1 Winner  HE’S NO PIE EATER was tragically destroyed after a training mishap at Randwick; the horse was insured with Logans for $5 million. This payout claim was an Australian record for any horse in training. Logans paid out the claim within 7 days of the lodgement of the claim.
