An incredible run down the final straight saw miRunners’ first ever horse, Saganaki, go within a whisker of claiming victory in an exciting run.
This promising run came in only his second start and with his debut seeing a third-placed finish, the gelding has a 100% place record in his racing career so far.

Saganaki was the first horse to be sold using the ground-breaking miRunners ownership model. Purchased at the Gold Coast Magic Millions for $165,000 – he was purchased by Australians from all walks of life for only $165 a unit.
Saganaki was the first of many horses now available from miRunners. There are currently four horses for sale with two horses in the final units stage. You can purchase for $275 (plus a monthly fee of $15).
In his debut race, Saganaki impressed by powering home on the final straight despite looking under pressure initially.
As his jockey, Aaron Bullock mentioned after the race, “He’ll come into his own once he gets to a mile. Once he gets to that distance he’ll come into his own. He’ll win plenty of races as a 3YO miler.”
Aaron Bullock’s comments regarding Saganaki as a prefered miler were further supported by the thoroughbred’s performance last Friday in Taree over 1250m as he flew home to claim 2nd.
Initially slow out the gates, it was his performance down the final straight which really excited owners and punters alike.
In sixth place with 400 metres to go, Saganaki flew down the final straight and would have claimed victory in two more strides. Similar to his debut, he finished extremely strongly and will be a serious threat when it comes to racing over 1400m.
