Why we love racing – how we see ourselves in horses

As our owners are such an important part of this miRunners experience, we decided to do a series on how our owners see themselves in horses and what thoroughbred ownership with miRunners means to them. We asked many of our loyal owners to give their response to the below quote: “A horse is the projection of peoples’ dreams about themselves – strong, powerful, beautiful – and it has the capability of giving us escape from the mundane” We have been overwhelmed by the responses so far – and first up we wanted to share the response from David and Carol…

Watch a full sister to your Not A Single Doubt x Countess Dehere filly win impressively on debut

It couldn’t have been a better debut for the full sibling of our Not A Single Doubt x Countess Dehere filly.

Not A Royal Doubt returns to the track alongside Slipper favourite

It was a competitive field for Not A Royal Doubt’s first trial of this preparation, as she was up against one of the Golden Slipper favourites in Loving Gaby.

It’s exciting for all owners to see Not A Royal Doubt back on the track again, and…

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…
