COPY OF A LETTER TO OUR CLIENTS FROM MICHAEL GRIEVE

Dear valued clients,

Thank you for entrusting your horses with us for 2020. It is great to see some green grass again and, although we have not received as much rain as some, we are very grateful for what we have had and hope there is more to come.

And thank you again for allowing us to put a drought levy on our agistment costs while we were in that very dry period. Now that some rain has come, I am happy to say that the levy will be removed as of 1 February.

I have attached with this letter our Price List for 2020. I am forever mindful of the costs involved with owning a thoroughbred racehorse. However, we do need to offer the best possible care and, although we have received good rainfall in parts, feed and other associated costs continue to increase.

The first thing you will notice is that we have come into line with normal practice these days of stating the price inclusive of GST. At first glance, prices will look higher but, with the GST included, you should not find much difference to your accounts. Where we believe our delivery is of a high standard and our fee has been well below the industry norm there have been some slight increases.

Please take the time to look at our prices and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you again for your business and we wish you much success and plenty of wins in 2020.
