Everything you need to know about barrier trials

You’ve watched your horse be educated, you’ve chosen their racing name, and now the moment has come for them to hit the track for trials! Watching your horse trial can feel like the Melbourne Cup, but in reality it is just another step in the process of building a racehorse: a racehorse that can handle different tracks, riders and race situations. Horse racing trials are basically mini races without the pressure of result driven outcomes. When working in a race preparation, all horses are accustomed to training with stable mates but this is not racing. Racing has a large number…

This is what a top-class Written Tycoon mare can look like – be part of an open ended story

Owners dream of the day they get to see their very own thoroughbred hit the track. The journey starts early, as owners buy into a yearling and watch them develop and mature into a race horse.

From her 15 race starts since winning her race debut as a 2YO, she has won 5 races including a Group 3, Group 2 and most recently, a Group 1. It seems this mare just keeps getting better, and now…

The feeling of watching your team on the big stage

There is nothing like following a sports team. In Australia, sport is such an important part of our culture and there is nothing more exciting than seeing the sports teams you follow hit the field. Take a few examples of the AFL: You hear the stories – a die-hard Richmond Tigers fan leaving his family holiday in Europe to return to Melbourne for the 2017 Grand Final. Win or lose, he had to be there to witness history, a long 37 years on from their last premiership win. He had been at that Grand Final in 1980, and had followed…
