This filly was bred by
GERRY HARVEY at BARAMUL STUD.

So taken by the yearling he had produced, when GERRY HARVEY heard that DYNAMIC SYNDICATIONS were the purchaser of his filly and would be giving her to CIARON MAHER to train from his Sydney base at Warwick Farm, Gerry immediately purchased 25% back into this filly to race in co-ownership with us.

Comments from 3 Leading Yearling Judges:

​​

Dr Tim Roberts & Dean Watt



Dr Tim Roberts (Veterinarian)

"This Filly is a real Zoustar type, she has the fabulous Zoustar walk and head on her and she was a terrific buy."
"From a Stakes Winning Mare she oozes class and clinically you just can’t fault her. I thought she was an absolute bargain, we bought a truly lovely Filly"

Dean Watt (Dynamic Syndications)

"The harder you work the luckier you get and never has that sentiment rung more true than with this Filly."
"We thought we had no chance to buy her as I had valued her at $200,000 + and the way the ZOUSTAR'S were selling, I didn't think we had a hope but late in the sale on the Saturday night 4th session, she slipped through the net. It proves that you never know at an auction, so you have to do your due intelligence on every lot you like."
"She is clean on X-ray and clean on Scope and she is a tremendously well put together individual."
"She is by the Sire of the moment out of a Group 3 Winning / Group 1 placed mare and given her wonderful pedigree, she will always have terrific residual value. I am thrilled to own her and offer her to our Dynamic owners!


   Ciaron Maher (Trainer):

"I am really delighted to be training this Filly for Dynamic Syndications and Gerry Harvey, she has a great pedigree, she is by the Sire of the moment and she was a really good looking and well put together individual."
"I have a few Zoustar’s in the stable and I really like what I have seen from them to date, they are easy to train and they can gallop. The Moonflute Filly is an absolute cracker and I am thrilled to have her."

PEDIGREE RATING SCORE

Zoustar is inbred 4m x 5m to Northern Dancer.

His sire Northern Meteor has worked well with horses from Danzig / Danehill line (Redoute’s Choice, Belong to Me, etc).

Introducing Danehill to Zoustar via daughters of Danehill, Flying Spur, Redoute's Choice or Al Maher were inbreeding options which met with immediate success.


When certain crosses are on fire, they seem to work almost everytime the mating is replicated.

This cross is one that is continuing to prove its affinity for success

TEAM DYNAMIC ~

Adam, Fiona & Dean

Have entrusted this fabulous filly to:
 



Ciaron Maher - Head Trainer

Who Is Ciaron Maher?

Upon first glance, Ciaron appears he may be better
suited as a beachcomber than a racehorse trainer.

However as the saying goes: “Never judge a book by its cover.”

     

Even the stable’s corporate logo identifies with Ciaron’s readily identifiable hairstyle.

Don’t let the laid-back easy going, personable demeanour deceive you.

Under those trademark long curly locks lies a steely determination to train and race the best horses in the country.

 


Now in his late-thirties, Ciaron has established himself as a genuine leader in Australian racing.




Training Partnership with David Eustace



In August 2018, Ciaron announced that David Eustace would join him as co-Trainer at Ciaron Maher Racing. This decision will ensure the success and growth of the stables for years to come.

Ciaron’s first Racing Season as a Trainer was in 2005/06.

In thirteen season on his own, Ciaron Maher trained:

564 Race Wins (15%); 858 (23%) Placings with earnings over $29.4 million.



10 Group 1 Wins

2017    JAMEKA The BMW 2400m
2017    RUTHVEN Qld Derby 2200m

ZOUSTAR x MOONFLUTE Yearling Filly with GERRY HARVEY and CIARON MAHER Racing

  • 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.

    ONGOING COSTS: Every trainer is different i.e. Metropolitan / Provincial / Country and in the way they account to owners.

    Below we have taken many of these variables into consideration to give an up to date assessment as what owners should budget:

    For any 5% Share over a 12 month period, on a Worse Case basis (All Costs & Fees included but with no prizemoney earned) -

    Owners should budget for any horse trained by a Premiership Leading Trainer at a Sydney or Melbourne Metropolitan Racetrack an average of:

    $8.90 + GST = $9.79 per day > ($62.50 + GST = $68.75 per week) >

    ($270 + GST = $297 per month) > ($3,250 + GST = $3,575 per annum)


    to have a horse trained by a Non-Premiership Leading but Top 20 Trainer at a Sydney or Melbourne Metropolitan Racetrack an average of:

    $8.20 + GST = $9.02 per day > ($58.00 + GST = $63.80 per week) >

    ($250 + GST = $275 per month) > ($3,000 + GST = $3,300 per annum)



    to have a horse trained by a Provincial Trainer at a NSW or Victorian Racetrack an average of:

    $7.53 + GST = $8.28 per day > ($52.80 + GST = $58.08 per week) >

    ($230 + GST = $253 per month) > ($2,750 + GST = $3,025 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 to be 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 the raw Fall Of Hammer Price (which does not include GST) 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 + ALL COSTS  + GST 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 - Then GST must be added 

    DYNAMIC SYNDICATIONS PROFIT MARGIN

    Our Profit Margin is determined by a Set Calculation Template.
    On Average it is 7.73% of the Final 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., etc.

    Therefore on the financial model above, should Dynamic Syndications purchase a horse for $100,000 in the salering, we add our set Profit Margin fee of $12,500 = $112,500 + $11,250 GST = $123,750 divided by 20 shares = $6,187.50 (inclusive of 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 an Australian Financial Services License, the maximum promotion allowed to be offered to the public from any Syndication Company is $500,000 including GST.

    However under our own 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 any 5% Share is  $1,062.50  from a  5% Share  priced at $13,750.

    Therefore to determine the net percentage profit on a sale of a 5% share is:

    $1,062.50 divided by $13,750 share price, multiplied by 100

    This equals just 7.73% of the Promotion Price.

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.

    +


    Heighten your racing experience and increase your enjoyment as an Owner in the Sport of Kings by understanding its commonly used terms, slang, lingo and sayings.

    Below is a comprehensive glossary of horse racing and veterinary terms designed specifically for Dynamic Racehorse Owners to help understand some of the more unusual words which have been adopted in horse racing.

    Horse racing dates back hundreds of years and has acquired some interesting use of the English language from all around the world which is now common place in everyday conversation.


    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.

    All Clear: The correct weights allocated to a horses depending on the type of race they are in, including jockey, gear and any lead that is required to make up the specific weight.

    All In Betting: A bet taken usually at fixed odds early in betting.

    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.

    Ataxia: Loss or failure of muscular coordination.

    Atrophy: To waste away, usually used in describing muscles.

    Average-Earnings Index (AEI): A breeding statistic that compares racing earnings of a stallion or mare's foals to those of all other foals racing at that time. An AEI of 1.00 is considered average, 2.00 is twice the average, 0.50 half the average, etc.

    Bay: A horse colour that varies from a yellow-tan to a bright auburn. The mane, tail and lower portion of the legs are always black, except where white markings are present.

    Benchmark: Under this system the weight a horse carries at its next start is determined immediately after its previous race, according to the merit of that run. Each Benchmark point equals half a kilogram.

    Birdcage: A portion of the racecourse where horses are paraded before the start of the race. Birdcage is also known as the celebrity room at large race days such as the Melbourne Cup in Australia.

    Bit: Part of the Bridle, the metal bar that is placed over the horses tongue. When a horse gets its tongue over the bit (or ‘Chokes Down’), the jockey has less control over the horse and the horse struggles to breath correctly.

Blood may be seen coming out of the horse's nostrils, known as "epistaxis," although it is typically discovered by a fibre optic endoscopic examination after exercise. Hot, humid weather and cold are known to exacerbate the problem. Less than one bleeder in 20 shows signs of epistaxis.

  • 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  $68.75 per week, (equivalent to  $9.79 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).

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.

  • 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.

Caulfield East, VIC 3145.


An Owners' experience like no other. That’s why you always come first at Ciaron Maher.



At Ciaron Maher Racing, they’re dedicated to ensuring Owners enjoy every step of the process to the winners’ circle.

We can’t guarantee you racetrack success (nobody can) but we can guarantee fun.

Owning a horse should be one of the most thrilling adventures of your life.

Ciaron’s strike rate is one of the best in the country but you’re never going to win every race. It’s crucial that our owners have an engaging, successful and most importantly, fun experience.

Ciaron said: “I like training for people I really get on with. The more familiar I am with my owners the better the thrill.”

“Even if their horses don’t win and we have another winner on the day, we hope they’re up and bouncing about too. It’s really great and I personally take a lot of pride in it. It’s great to have that relationship with my Owners.”

Co-Trainer David Eustace said: “Obviously every Owner knows that when they go into a horse, not every horse is going to win, some just don’t, know matter how good your strike rate is or how hard you try.

“It’s not all about winning, obviously we try but at the same time, when horses lose we still want to have fun so it’s really an important part of what we want to provide.

“It’s got to be a good day out at the races and positive experiences away from the track, like coming to the stables, watching the trials, etc. That is really important for us and we hope that people who have a horse, enjoy it when they are involved.”

Owners Come First - Join the Dynamic / Ciaron Maher & David Eustace Team today.

 

Stay Informed

If you’re overseas, interstate or you’re just not a fan of the early starts, you can always watch your horse’s professionally-filmed track work from the convenience of your smart phone, laptop or smart TV.

Communication is very important for Owners, it’s what keeps Owners involved.

Owners want to know and some trainers and racing people don’t understand how much they desire to know what’s happening. The more we give our Owners, the happier they are.

The stable started doing videos of the gallops on Tuesday mornings and got really positive feedback. We are trying to be as informative as we can and keep connections and owners in touch with the horse and how it’s going.

Technology has advanced and the industry has to do the same. Previously owners only saw their horses on raceday but now they get weekly videos or photos or voice reports and it’s really important that we keep improving that service.


Charity Pledge

Ciaron Maher Racing chose to support the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre as their charity.

This is the only public hospital in Australia solely dedicated to cancer. They have over 600 staff working around the clock trying to find cures for this disease. The hospital creates an environment of hope and aspiration at the most difficult time in people’s lives.

Ciaron said: “Cancer has touched our family, as it’s touched a lot of families so we thought it was a great idea to be able to give back to a foundation like Peter Mac www.petermac.org who are so progressive.

From the stable’s 10% trainer’s percentage, Ciaron Maher Racing donates:

Stakes Win $500
Metro Win $200
Provincial Win $100
Country Win $50

Donations are forwarded monthly and the stable aims to reach a level of $100,000 per racing season.


Who Is Ciaron Maher?



Ciaron Maher - Head Trainer

Upon first glance, Ciaron appears he may be better suited as a beachcomber than a racehorse trainer.

However as the saying goes: “Never judge a book by its cover.”

Corporate Logo

Even the stable’s corporate logo identifies with Ciaron’s readily identifiable hairstyle.

Don’t let the laid-back easy going, personable demeanour deceive you.

Under those trademark long curly locks lies a steely determination to train and race the best horses in the country.



Now in his late-thirties, Ciaron has established himself as a genuine leader in Australian racing.

Ciaron first tasted Group 1 success at just 26 years-of-age and has consistently built upon that success to now have 10 Group 1 wins and arguably the best winners-to-runners strike rate in Victoria.

In a recent interview Ciaron said: “I decided I was going to train when I was 24. I had just come back from working in Dubai.

“My dad and I owned a horse named Spectacular Storm and I said to dad at the time that I would like to give training a go for a couple of years and if I was no good at it, I would return to the run the family farm."

“So thankfully it went the right way so I’m not stuck on the farm milking cows!”




“There’s no doubt I’m driven by the big winners, I love it. There is no better feeling than mapping a plan and then it comes off ….. that’s what it’s all about.”

Tear’s I Cry was Ciaron’s first major result in 2007. The gelding won the Group 1 Emirates Stakes at Flemington over 1600m. The laid back Maher greeted the press after the race and said “I always had the vision to train but it’s unbelievable that this (Group 1 success) has come around so quick.”

Tear’s I Cry would eventually retire with 10 race wins and $908,340 prizemoney.


Ciaron with his parents

Ciaron’s father said: “He’s brilliant with any animal. He can train dogs, he’s good at handling cattle, drafting cattle, anything like that. He just has the right nature. He’s very relaxed and seems to have an affinity with animals.”

Former jockey Sam Hyland added: “He’s got plenty of cheek about him and I suppose that goes with being a jumps jockey, being a bit mad ….. but he’s just the perfect horseman, his nerve was never tested and he always gave his all when he went out and had a ride and that shows in how he’s training.”

Co-trainer David Eustace said: “He’s very laid back but very much in a good way. He’s very switched on with what he’s interested in which is horses.”

One of the Owners in the Ciaron Maher stables said: “He’s not what you expect, he looks more like the wild colonial boy (or a surfer dude) but what is most to like is his radical and intelligent approach to racing. Ownership is about having a lot of fun and Ciaron is very entertaining to be around. Racing is an expensive hobby so if you’re not enjoying it well ….. be with someone you can.”




The Ciaron Maher Team

Ciaron Maher Racing is made up of young, passionate and experienced people who all contribute to the team’s success on the track.
Ciaron’s rare gift for preparing his horses to peak at the right time is born from his attention to detail and individual approach to each horse.


New Training Partnership with David Eustace



In August 2018, Ciaron announced that David Eustace would join him as co-Trainer at Ciaron Maher Racing. This decision will ensure the success and growth of the stables for years to come.


Co-Trainer - David Eustace

Since joining the team in mid-2016, David has proved the perfect balance with his intensity and meticulous nature complimenting Ciaron’s more relaxed approach. The Ying and the Yang matches perfectly for each other.

Ciaron said: “David has really grown into the role, staring as an assistant trainer and then looking after the stable when I had some time off. I was impressed the way he really stood up to be counted because there was a lot of pressure on David. It was a big team and the stable never missed a beat.”

David grew up in Newmarket England which is a racing town. His father trains at Newmarket having 30 boxes and has trained there for 26 years so David has spent his whole life in a racing stable.

Intelligent and a talented amateur rider, Ciaron and David share a lot of common ground where they have learnt their trade.

There is a lot of respect for one another. Both have a determined focus and an eagerness to achieve.

David gets on well with all owners and connections. He is approachable, open to conversation, explanation and is a good leader within the stable. The staff all respect him and he has a great rapport with everyone.

David jokes: “Failed flat jockeys often make bad trainers but failed jumps jockeys tend to make very good trainers ….. that’s how it works in England, so there is hope for me !”


Pre-Training Facility

PAKENHAM FARM

The Pakenham farm might be a nice little break from the rigours of training for the horses. Alternatively it’s the venue where horses having completed their spell transition with the basic foundation work before heading onto the main stable.

However when out at Pakenham Farm, Ciaron employs the unique method of having all his horses do dressage and these results speak for themselves.

The stable also send them out there at all different times of their preparations. Some fillies might just need a bit of a freshen-up like a weekend away - just like us!

Some horses might need a week or more. Decisions are made upon the individual.

Ciaron said: "We use dressage to get the horses muscle tone rounded up nicely and to move properly. It helps to develop muscle and balances the horse’s action.

"They learn how to canter on each lead leg and how to use themselves. Such as how to get their back legs underneath themselves and drive off their back legs and how to bend and flex.

"A lot of racehorses end up ridged and stiff because they have only learnt how to go in straight lines.

"It’s a very important part in developing an athlete."


Training – Proven Success

Ciaron’s first Racing Season as a Trainer was in 2005/06.

In his first season as a trainer, he started horses in 67 Races for 7 Wins and 17 Placings.

His most successful horse that year was All Garhood who had 12 starts: 3 Wins and 6 placings.

He also won a race with Spectacular Storm, Three Kings and Our Lotto.

In thirteen season on his own, Ciaron Maher trained:

564 Race Wins (15%); 858 (23%) Placings with earnings over $29.4 million.

ZOUSTAR: His Story


Australia’s two dominant stallions of the past decade, Encosta de Lago and Redoute’s Choice, combine in the pedigree of brilliant sprinter Zoustar who made his start to stud duties with spectacular success.

The dual Gr.1 winner is the first horse to win the Golden Rose and the Coolmore Stud Stakes (Ascot Vale) double.

Zoustar (ex Zouzou by Redoute’s Choice), was a $140,000 Magic Millions purchase and heads his sire Northern Meteor’ honour board of successes with six wins and a second in nine starts and earnings of $1.4m.

His Career:


Fresh from a trial win over 900m (beating Charlie Boy) on April 2, trainer Chris Waller opted to give his talented juvenile his first start in an 1100m 2YO maiden at Canterbury on April 17, 2013 and he scored a strong win on a slow track having 1.75 lengths over Tweet at the finish.

He lived right up to that form next time out on May 4 when he led most of the way to claim at $100,000 juvenile event at Hawkesbury by a length from Divine Calling, running the 1300m in 1:17.0 and prompting jockey to declare, “It was a comfortable win, it was only his second run and he’s still learning his trade, but my word he gave me a great feel and we will be hearing a lot more from him if he goes to Brisbane.”

The trainer exercised that option and he lined up in the BRC Sires’ Produce-Gr.2 (1350m) on May 25.

Zoustar led home the field of 15 by 1.25 lengths, relegating the talented Vilanova and Bound for Earth into the minors, running 1:20.53 on a track rated dead.

He wasn’t disgraced in his final start as a juvenile when in Gr.1 company next time out (June 8) finishing a half-length second to another Northern Meteor, the gelded Romantic Touch, in the $500,00 J.J. Atkins (1600m), with Paximadia third in the field of 13.

He was back in action early in the new season with a fourth in the Run to the Rose-Gr.3 (1200m) at Rosehill on August 31, beaten 1.75 lengths by Va Pensiero.

Next start was another Gr.1 assignment, this time in the Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill on September 14. Settling well back in the field of 15 and skirting wide most of the way to avoid trouble, the three year-old colt swept around the field with 200m to go and with Jimmy Cassidy working hard got the better of Dissident on the line to win by a neck, with Bull Point 1.5 lengths back in third. The winner’s time was 1:22.51.

There was another win next time out, at Randwick on October 5, when Zoustar captured the Roman Consul Stakes-Gr.2 (1200m in 1:09.45) by 4.25 lengths from Barbed and Open Book, signalling he was one of the best young sprinters in the land. Clearly several major studs thought so too and in the end Widden won the bidding duel for the talented three year-old, paying a rumoured $14m, with contingencies, so there was plenty on the line when he lined up in the VRC Coolmore Stud Stakes (Ascot Vale) Gr.1, down the Flemington straight on November 2 (including an additional $4m payment to his former owners if he won).

In the end he simply powered away, cruising to the lead at the 300m to win the $500,000 1200m sprint, running 1:09.23 on a dead track to beat Not Listenin’tome by two lengths and with Lion of Belfort third in the field of 11.

Zoustar’s Coolmore Stud Stakes victory was some 1.2 seconds quicker than Buffering’s Gr.1 WFA win a week later. His time was 1.3 seconds faster than his sire and grandsire Northern Meteor and Encosta de Lago clocked in their Coolmore victories.

“He’s a horse we’ve been following since day one and it’s been very exciting to watch his career unfold from a debut win at two to being the best three year-old sprinting colt of his generation,” Widden owner Antony Thompson said after the colt’s second Gr.1 success. “Northern Meteor made such a huge impact for us in the short time that we were lucky enough to have him, so it seems only right that his best son should follow in his footsteps and join us at Widden.”

Although Zoustar was impressive, his trainer Chris Waller predicted bigger things in the autumn. “He’s still not quite there yet, he’s still learning. He didn’t get any cover which didn’t help, he was always going to be vulnerable the last 200m. I think there’s still a lot of improvement to come.”

His new connections, Widden sold 25% to Woodside Park (where the horse did cover his second and fourth seasons) as well as an interest to Sheikh Fahad Al Thani’s Qatar Bloodstock, began planning an assault on Royal Ascot and the horse was given a break until early 2014 when he appeared in two trials before an unplaced run in the Canterbury Stakes-Gr.1 on March 15 and then a trial win on March 31 before shipping out to England.

Sheikh Fahad said. “I was able to inspect Zoustar following his dominant win the Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington. This colt represents everything that is great about Australian horses. He is strong, masculine and incredibly fast and I am very excited about the prospects of him racing in Europe and ultimately retiring to stud.”

The horse was showing sparkling form in his gallops in the UK when he suffered a small strain to the lateral aspect of the proximal suspensory ligament. Although not serious, the injury meant three months off racing and the decision was made to retire the valuable colt immediately.

“It is extremely disappointing that we are not able to compete at Ascot and the owners and I are devastated by this. The horse had travelled extremely well to England and for me it was the start of what would have been the experience of a lifetime. Zoustar’s ability, attitude and physical attributes as well as his gentlemanly temperament make him a tremendously special horse to me,” Waller said when announcing the horse’s retirement as the winner of six of his nine starts for earnings of $1,411,680 and a World Thoroughbred Ranking of 117 (in 2013).

Zoustar was first in the ring as a weanling and sold to KP Thoroughbreds for $85,000 at the 2011 MM National Sale. Kulani Park and offered him as a yearling at the Gold Coast seven months later where the colt was snapped up for $140,000.

ZOUSTAR becomes a Shuttle Stallion:


Zoustar, part-owned by Qatar Racing, will stand at Tweenhills Stud in Gloucestershire for the 2019 breeding season.
Currently based at Widden Stud in New South Wales, Zoustar will shuttle to the UK next season where he will join the Qatar Racing stallion roster. European breeders will have access to the most promising young stallion in the southern hemisphere.

The Australian 3YO champion sprinter made a sensational start to his stud career, siring three Group 2 winners in his first crop. These include Sunlight, the Magic Millions 2YO Classic and Silver Slipper Gr. 2 winner who then placed in the richest two-year-old race in the world, the Golden Slipper Stakes Gr. 1.

He also sired the Quinella in the Sires’ Produce Stakes Gr. 2 at Doomben with his sons Lean Mean Machine and Zousain.
Zousain who had previously won the Champagne Classic Gr. 2, then went on to finish runner up by a neck in the J.J Atkins Plate Gr. 1 over a mile.

With his progeny collecting over $3 million in prize money earnings to date, the handsome son of Northern Meteor has broken the all-time prize money record for an Australasian Champion first-season sire.

Zoustar also finished in third position on the two-year-old sires table last season behind Snitzel and I Am Invincible.
Again this season Zoustar is leading the way as a Second Crop sire.

Unsurprisingly Zoustar’s yearlings have proven extremely popular at the sales.

“The opportunity to stand the sensational Champion Zoustar at Tweenhills is the most exciting thing I have been involved with in my career. The buzz surrounding this horse and what he has achieved in Australia is deafening and to be able to stand him alongside Qatar Racing’s other sensational young stallions is an honour and a challenge that my team and I relish.” Said Daivid Redvers – from Tweenhills.

“From the first moment Sheikh Fahad and I saw Zoustar at Flemington we were convinced that we were witnessing something special and had to be involved. He has that rare mixture of precocity, natural speed, turn of foot, pedigree and physical presence you see in only a very few genuinely top flight stallions. We were spellbound and have been ‘all-in’ ever since.

“I’m not sure European breeders have ever been offered access to such an exciting Australian stallion at this point in his career and news has been received with tremendous support and enthusiasm from Europe’s leading farms.”

Antony Thompson, owner of Widden Stud, commented; “Zoustar standing at Tweenhills provides a rare chance to showcase one of our hottest young stallions in Europe. We were always confident that he is a stallion who would leave his mark and see great success in both hemispheres. He is a beautiful looking horse, a Champion racehorse with a great temperament, he stamps his stock who are every inch like their sire, and he has the potential to even surpass his own magnificent and much missed sire, Northern Meteor.”

PEDIGREE RATING SCORE

Zoustar is inbred 4m x 5m to Northern Dancer.

His sire Northern Meteor has worked well with horses from Danzig / Danehill line (Redoute’s Choice, Belong to Me, etc).

Introducing Danehill to Zoustar via daughters of Danehill, Flying Spur, Redoute's Choice or Al Maher are interesting inbreeding options which met with immediate success.


When certain crosses are on fire, they seem to work almost everytime the mating is replicated.

This cross is one that is continuing to prove its affinity for success

PEDIGREE NOTES – It’s all in the genes !

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


Also this has been rated a “A +++” class mating with an 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 EXCELLENT 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.


Based on the concept of "Dig for Gold where Gold has been found before", it makes sense that any sensible business philosophy should look to purchase yearlings where there has been an attempt by the breeder to replicate pedigrees of High Quality Group Winners.

Any analysis must look at the entire pedigree as whole however there are key indicators in pedigrees that expose greater insight and the propensity of the mating to produce a High Quality racehorse as compared to the average population.

"Common Similarity Index" (CSI) is a measure of how close the pedigree of the Stakes Winner matches the hypothetical-mating.

In general, values at and above 18 indicate a strong similarity.

As a rule of thumb, if the results list shows 4 or more horses with CSI of 18 or above, it is usually a "good mating".

There are 12 Stakes Winners with a strong similarity in this breeding pattern.

Next .....


A 20/20 mating occurs when a pattern has 2 or more Stakes Winners with CSI values above 20.

This indicates that this pedigree is "exceptional" as there are at least 2 superior horses with a "very similar" pattern.


In the breeding pattern of our yearling the number of matched ancestors is HIGH.

There were 9 Stakes Winners with very similar breeding patterns.

Stakes Winning Horses bred on a Similar Pattern (22 or more Common Ancestors)

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
13 Group 1 races.

OUR SALE NOTES:

Below was the commentary report Dean Watt wrote about the yearling during three (3) pre-sale selection criteria inspections prior to the lot being offered for sale.

Commentary in brackets has been added in for description purpose so non-horse industry participants may have a better understanding of Dean’s sales notes. The notes are:


A high quality example of the type of yearlings the sire ZOUSTAR produces

~ we wanted to buy the yearling and to give it to CIARON MAHER


  • Good width of jaw and corresponds with big Nostrils (for windflow capacity access)
  • Conformationally front legs are excellent with nice short cannon (which is technically very good – means longer forearm covers more ground per stride)
  • Powerful hindquarter with excellent length of to its croup and excellent hip:hock ratio (propulsion levers for driving forward)
  • Well developed Gaskins (like Human biceps = strength) which are strong and deep into hocks
  • Correct angulation to pasterns and shoulders (correct 60 degree angles)
  • Hoofs are well structured and all 4 are symmetrical with good heels.
  • Intelligent Head - Wide Forehead - Soft Kind Eye
  • Has a strong reign (neck & distance from Poll to Withers)
  • Strong well defined top line (back) with the withers set well back
  • Excellent - Deep girth (Lung capacity)
  • A top walker – purposeful, balanced, with fluid motion.
  • Stands over good ground (length to back in correct proportion to balance of individual)
  • Nice style of individual by the sire with great V8 motor (hindquarter = propulsion)
  • Importantly this yearling Tracks Truly and has a Very Good Overstep (Propulsion)

Comments from 3 Leading Yearling Judges:

Dr Tim Roberts (Veterinarian)

"This Filly is a real Zoustar type, she has the fabulous Zoustar walk and head on her and she was a terrific buy."

"From a Stakes Winning Mare she oozes class and clinically you just can’t fault her. I thought she was an absolute bargain, we bought a truly lovely Filly"

Dean Watt (Dynamic Syndications)

"The harder you work the luckier you get and never has that sentiment rung more true than with this Filly."

"We thought we had no chance to buy her as I had valued her at $200,000 + and the way the ZOUSTAR'S were selling, I didn't think we had a hope but late in the sale on the Saturday night 4th session, she slipped through the net. It proves that you never know at an auction, so you have to do your due intelligence on every lot you like."

"She is clean on X-ray and clean on Scope and she is a tremendously well put together individual."

"She is by the Sire of the moment out of a Group 3 Winning / Group 1 placed mare and given her wonderful pedigree, she will always have terrific residual value. I am thrilled to own her and offer her to our Dynamic owners!


   Ciaron Maher (Trainer):

"I am really delighted to be training this Filly for Dynamic Syndications and Gerry Harvey, she has a great pedigree, she is by the Sire of the moment and she was a really good looking and well put together individual."
"I have a few Zoustar’s in the stable and I really like what I have seen from them to date, they are easy to train and they can gallop. The Moonflute Filly is an absolute cracker and I am thrilled to have her."

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.

Veterinarian:



Dr Tim Roberts - 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:

Considering HER outstanding conformation and the strength and depth of the female family and the pedigree genetics scoring A+++ this individual was secured at a price representing terrific value to the team at Dynamic.

We had valued the yearling at $200,000 (+ one bid $210,000).

The secure the filly at $110,000  was a 25% ($50,000) discount to our market appraisal of the true commercial value
and this represented exceptional value that we now pass onto our owners.

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

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.

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.

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 MARCH 2018 sits at 92.5%.

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.

* 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 - Founder

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.


BOB & RICHARD LOGAN

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.

Richard is now the Managing Director of Logans following the sudden death of Bob at the Easter Broodmares Sales in 2007. This was a tragic loss to his countless number of friends, clients and the horse industry overall.

Quality, practicality, experience and teamwork are of paramount importance in today's highly competitive market. This criteria, plus 24-hour personal service, forms the basis of the business philosophy they offer to Dynamic Syndications and our clients.

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.


At Dynamic, our clients gain the benefit of 30 years of our dealings with Logans together with the one insurance provider and the obvious advantages this association carries. Richard Logan is our man and equine insurance is all they do.
