Barrier Jumping: The Education Never Stops

Your horse is back in training and looking great, surely the next stop is the races? There is a critical step, that has been in the media lately, that needs to be mastered however before a race opportunity can be taken. Today we are talking jumping and barrier trials. When you try something for the first time you do not expect to do it perfectly and we don’t expect that from young horses. One critical step for a racehorse is mastering the barriers, a step that can make or break a career in racing. And a step that in Australia…

David Raphael – The man who signed Rubick’s docket

We recently had a discussion with David Raphael, the man who purchased Rubick, to gain a little more context on current rumours and why Rubick has trainers walking with a spring in their step. Dive in for more depth below. My background with Rubick… I’m the guy who signed the docket to buy him, so I suppose the line is; we didn’t at the time think it was going to be such a game changer for us. I went to the Gold Coast Sale met with my trainer and everybody had gone and looked at all their inspections before they…

Rubick – Has trainers walking with a spring in their step.

The rumours running hot within breeding and racing circles are that the first crop of Rubick, whose oldest foals are set to debut next month, have their trainers walking with a real spring in their step.

Q&A with Jack Bruce, Racing Manager – Baker Racing

We recently sat down with Jack Bruce, racing manager at Baker Racing to discuss the ins and outs of his role. Or as he put it; what it’s like being Bjorn Baker’s “extra pair of arms.” Metamorphosis included. What is your role at Baker racing? My official title is Racing Manager but to be honest I am the extra pair of arms for Bjorn. Each morning I help with trackwork and saddle up on raceday. Then I morph into a stable manager when needed in the stables and get right into animal husbandry when needed. And unfortunately I get to…

It’s all in the family

The saying goes “when you’re on to a good thing stick to it” so it’s no surprise that the family of Your Song X Sheeznodoubt are already with Gollan Racing and have delivered close to $100,000 in prize money to date. The Gollan stable has already had success with Your Song X Sheeznodoubt sisters She’s Our Star and Hollaback Girl. And it is the success and belief in the family that prompted Tony Gollan to go looking to purchase more of this family at Magic Millions. It was a match made in heaven when miRunners approached Tony Gollan with this…

It’s nearly Father’s Day – what are our horses’ fathers up to?

Our 2018 miRunners horses’ sires were all on show this weekend in the yearly tradition – the Stallion parades. What was it all about? This weekend Hunter Valley studs including Arrowfield, Widden Stud and Coolmore opened their doors to broodmare owners and clientele alike to view the Stallions on their books for the 2018 season. This might seem like any other parade – these stallions are household names in the racing industry. But this weekend, breeders had a chance to see if what they think will work on paper has potential in in the flesh. (You can try your hand…
