The excitement and passion is growing for this weekend’s The Everest race at Royal Randwick in Sydney, billed as the world’s biggest race on turf – with a dash of controversy to help keep things moving!
Putting that controversy and debate aside, what’s clear is that racing is important to many Australians at all levels. The excitement that flows from races like The Everest, and new initiatives such as The Kosciuszko for NSW country thoroughbreds, is tangible. And all weeks before the big one, the Melbourne Cup!
What’s more, with Saganaki’s trainers Kris Lees and David Hayes fielding four probable starters in The Everest, and with Zoushack nominated for the $125,000 Victory Vein Plate during the race meeting following his 1st place in Monday’s barrier trial at Warwick Farm, there is plenty to be interested in for miRunners owners.
New conversations are starting with those Australians who, for whatever reason, still feel that thoroughbred ownership and a long-term relationship with racing is not for them, either because of cost, unfamiliarity, no sense of community, or lack of access to those in the know.
You can all play your part in growing this new grassroots movement. You’ll create new ownership experiences, with one of seven young horses under management being trained by the best trainers in Australia, and one – Not A Single Doubt X Countess Dehere, being our first community horse – if you’re from the Geelong area, time to Belong to Geelong!

We’re all playing our part in nurturing the future of racing. From new initiatives such as The Everest, and of course miRunners, we can grow the industry to embrace, engage with, attract and welcome Australians from every walk of life, to the sport we love so much.
