Hear from Tony Gollan as to his training philosophy and his approach for training Lyrical Girl

Leading Queensland trainer Tony Gollan sees a lot of potential in the miRunners Lyrical Girl filly that he is currently training. We recently had a chat to him to hear his thoughts on the filly, and how he adapts his training style to suit each individual thoroughbred. “I love this filly, from the minute we saw her at the sales. I have had a little bit to do with the family; she’s a beautiful type of filly with a great action about her. She’s a gorgeous headed filly, and there’s really not a lot you can fault with her. I absolutely…

We could even consider giving her a week…

Melbourne Cup stats and facts

Racing loves statistics – none more than when you own a racehorse (or win the Melbourne Cup.) Perhaps second only to first-class cricket, the racing industry, those who own, those who train and those who enjoy racing love data, form and stats. So we thought we’d run a quick comparison with the 2018 winner Cross Counter, won (as every miRunners owner will know!) by jockey Kerrin McEvoy, who raced Zoushack at Royal Randwick during this year’s Everest meeting (and apologies for any errors).

Melbourne Cup: Jumping the fence from spectator to owner!

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.

She was prominent from the start settling second in the field, before making her move midway through the trial to lead and eventually kick away to win in good fashion. A group of miRunners owners were cheering from the Old Stand at Royal Randwick as they watched Not A Royal Doubt…

The thrill of premium thoroughbred ownership

Nothing compares to the moment you see your own horse parading in the mounting yard. It’s like seeing your baby’s first steps. Especially if it’s your first. Premium thoroughbred ownership is special. Hearing the pre-race comments exclusively from your trainer and jockey, explaining their vision of how they believe the race will play out. Listening to where your horse will sit in the field. Will it sit two back on the rails and make its move on the turn, or is the plan to lead from start to finish? There is no way to explain what goes through an owner’s…
