To most Australians Winx does not stand out from the crowd or look like a sure winner but looks can be deceiving. She’s now billed as the world’s greatest horse. And we’ve asked some industry experts why this champion is so good. The champion Aussie mare raced into history this weekend at Randwick with her 26th straight victory, surpassing the mark set by the legendary Black Caviar. But Winx is not like Black Caviar. Black Caviar would blitz her rivals with one of the longest strides every measured on a racehorse – a whooping 8.42 metres. When the average racehorse…

miRunners horses are members of the family

Headlines and stories in the news about owners not putting the welfare of their horse first is another myth we need to discuss. As an owner, you know the emotion you feel every time you see your thoroughbred. You admire the sheer physical stature of your horse; you smile when your horse gives you a cheeky nod; you worry when a viral infection is more than just a cold. It is not prompted, it is not scripted. It is how everyone responds to any member of the family. And as an owner you know that patience is a virtue. When…
