How it feels to own part of a racehorse – the story of owner Michael Jensen

Being an owner in a thoroughbred really is something else. Win or lose, it’s an indescribable feeling watching your very own racehorse step out onto that track, no matter what race it is.

Courtesy of Racing Queensland, this is a presentation of a day in the life owner Michael Jensen who has a share in Gollan Racing‘s 2YO Ready To Roam.

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…
