Who is Saganaki?

Saganaki was the first ever miRunners horse, selling out in October 2017 just days before his first barrier trial. The original Peoples’ Horse, the Australian public was involved in every step of the colt’s progress: even choosing his name and designed his racing silks.


Saganaki is a 2015 colt by Real Saga from Cubism. Bred out of Australia’s most successful Broodmare line and a leading Sire, Saganaki has pedigree on his side.

Half-sister, See Miracles, has had a strong start to her career with eight podiums and a pair of wins already.

Saganaki’s two full sisters both won on debut. Older sister Stroak won her first two races at Doomben in 2013 while Cuban Saga made her debut in April of this year, winning over 1200m at Sunshine Coast.

The best news of all of this is that Saganaki is tipped to be the finest specimen amongst these siblings – and his training and trials so far has proven him to be a keen worker and a strong runner.


Saganaki was purchased at the Gold Coast Magic Millions, January 2017 for A$165,000 (incl GST) from the QLD based Glenlogan Park. He was hand-picked by miRunners from thousands of horses at this budget.

Kris Less was the trainer selected and that saw Saganaki stabled at Emeran Park, NSW with training in Newcastle and Ellalong Farm.

Named by the Australian public in September 2017, the public were also asked to design Saganaki’s racing silks with the winner to be announced shortly.

Saganaki had his first barrier trial in October 2017, justifying his trainer’s strong predictions with a good run on a wet away track.
