miRunners owners were able to meet leading Australian trainer David Hayes and top jockey Kerrin McKevoy on Everest before watching their horse run.
As we get ready for the race that stops the nation, new research from TEG Insights as reported in B&T Magazine sheds light on our love of racing – and opens our eyes to what we spend at Flemington every year. On average, Australians spend $179 each on Melbourne Cup day, on fashions and betting. And 10% of us will spend over $300. With miRunners, you can now own a unit in a premium thoroughbred for this amount.
Now we all love a day at Flemington or the social aspect in getting together on Cup day with your team at work to (along with the rest of Australia) cheer on someone else’s horse! Now for the same ballpark amount, you can today jump the fence and own a premium level thoroughbred, cared for by some of the best trainers in Australia. With miRunners, you can now own in one of our three current premium thoroughbreds – and have a reason to cheer, socialise and experience the thrill of ownership all year long.

Owner Jason spoke of his experience of ownership: “miRunners is a great experience for anyone looking to get involved or are already involved in the racing industry. Trainers are top grade with top quality thoroughbreds. The best thing is that you get the same benefits as a 100% owner no matter what percent you own. Overall it is an extremely fun and inexpensive way to get involved in horse racing ownership. I highly recommend to all”.
At $275 per unit in each of our Rubick x Slainte and our Your Song x Sheeznodoubt fillies, and $198 in our Team Geelong thoroughbred Not A Single Doubt X Countess Dehere, owning a premium thoroughbred has never been more affordable and accessible. Not only does ownership last for the career of the horse, estimated at up to three years or more, it’s actually less expensive than an afternoon of buying lunch, drinks and a flutter when watching the Melbourne Cup or just about any other day out. The big difference, however, is the thrill of ownership can deliver you an experience that will never, ever leave you. Do it with your friends and these can deliver memories that simply blow your mind.
Through the incredibly informative weekly communications you receive from your trainer, you will bond to your thoroughbred as only humans and horses can do. $15 per month covers all costs on your first ownership unit, add $5 per month for every additional unit purchased.
There is a reason thoroughbred ownership attracts The Queen, Sheiks and billionaires and that is because the thrill of ownership is like no other experience that money can buy. miRunners now allows everyone to have their chance at competing on the same big stage, through its premium thoroughbred offering and via partnering with some of the very best trainers in the country. These are very expensive horses, simply made affordable by miRunners structure which divides these expensive thoroughbreds into 1000 ownership units.

Owner Harry said: “From the moment I became involved with miRunners until this very moment, my experience has been without a doubt brilliant. I never thought I would see the day that I had shares in racehorses, but because of miRunners and the affordability, that dream has now become a reality”.
The Melbourne Cup In Numbers: Aussies Spend $179 Each On The Race That Stops The Nation
The experience, fun and thrills of race horse ownership are at an entirely different level to say winning with a bet, or even that of looking smart. Weekly updates from Australia’s top trainers, owners’ days to meet trainers and horses, a say in the name of the horses you own, and importantly bonding with your horse and building a sense of camaraderie and new friends.
So as you celebrate on Tuesday afternoon, imagine “jumping the fence” and instead of watching the show now being a part of it. You could go quickly go from the spectators’ stand to the owners’ stand and mounting yard. Get ready as the thrill of ownership will completely consume you, that extra thrill of the heart-stopping pride as you watch your “baby” run. This Melbourne cup – consider buying a unit in a miRunners premium thoroughbred.
