The cost of membership is only $50 and as long as the managing owner is a member at acceptance time, the NSWSOA bonus is $500, made in proportions by the association and the club.

If the horse is payed up for the Breeders Challenge there is another $500 bonus available from Harness Racing NSW.

The Young meeting on Friday offered the bonuses and Bankstown on May 31 will be the next meeting in the series. Membership can be purchased at www.nswsoa.org.au where a list of the meetings at which the bonuses will be available can be viewed.

Luke McCarthy has lost his appeal to be awarded costs after the HRNSW had to drop charges arising from Mach Wiper recording a level of boldenone higher than the threshold in the Australian harness racing rules after winning the 2011 Newcastle Cup.

The swab was shown to be contaminated, with the level of boldenone increasing each time Mach Wiper’s sample was tested. This was most likely caused by enzymatic activity, in turn caused by microbial contamination.

McCarthy battled to clear his name for six months after stewards originally found him guilty of a breach under the rules and disqualified him for nine months.

However, the racing appeals tribunal found there were no factors in the way in which the appeal had been run by the HRNSW respondent that required such a compensation order to be made and there were no exceptional circumstances.

Meanwhile, Neil Day leaves for France to contest the World Drivers Championships this week.
