A massive community to join built on the love of ownership- miRunners

Dusty plains to sandy seashores, dirt tracks to turf tracks, racing in Queensland has got it all.

Now thanks to the miRunners and Racing Queensland partnership, every Australian has the opportunity to jump onboard the ride as an owner with access to affordable premium bred racehorses.  Being part of the miRunners community means sharing an interest in more than just racing. It is…

Dusty Tycoon and Zoushack headlined the quality of miRunners horses as they gave the whole community a reason to celebrate over the past fortnight. The excitement was highlighted by race caller Josh Fleming as Dusty Tycoon stormed passed the Sunshine Coast Turf Club winning post first. “And I can hear the miRunners team cheering from up here,” he said. These cheers continued all the way down to Victoria as Zoushack tackled the Magic Millions 3&4YO Classic.

Everest Day 2018 – A day to remember for many Zoushack owners

Last year on Everest Day, Zoushack made his debut in the Victory Vein Plate on a dismal day at Randwick. It surely wasn’t a dismal day for Zoushack owners however, who enjoyed every minute of their ownership experience. With over 40,000 attendees there for Australia’s richest race on turf, Zoushack owners felt like royalty watching their boy take to the track for the first time. Experiencing the mounting yard at Randwick and meeting trainer David Hayes as well as two-time Everest winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy is something they will never forget.  Not much went right for Zoushack in the run,…

Become a player in the Australian Racing boom

Whether it is the attractive prize money on offer, the glitz and glamour of down under racing carnivals, it is no doubt Australia is the country that aspiring global players want to get that win on their passport. Since the 1800’s Australian racing has captured the interests of international raiders in their quest for equine glory. The prestige of winning a race on Australian turf has lured some of the world’s most influential people such as Godolphin founder His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and The Queen of England.  Whilst the possibility of Australians owning a racehorse bred…

miRunners under lights and at the track

It has been an exciting past week for our owners of Zoushack and Bellarine Beauty, with Zoushack making his Victorian metro debut at the Valley last Friday night and Bellarine Beauty running in the race of the day yesterday at Ballarat.  Zoushack put in a gutsy effort to finish third after missing the start by a length and a half and not being able to really catch a break in the run following. Jockey Jamie Kah tried to pull to the outside and got blocked, then tried again to make a run on the inside and just couldn’t find a…

Zoushack makes it 2 wins from 2 runs this preparation with a gutsy finish

Zoushack put in a gutsy performance to make it 2 wins from 2 outings this preparation, winning Race 10 at Seymour by a literal nose hair. In a tight photo finish which looked to have nothing in it, Zoushack kicked back when it mattered to make it back to back wins. After being vetted at the gates, 3YO gelding Zoushack jumped well out of the barriers and settled at the front of the field, leading from start to finish. In saying this, there was great tension in the finish when it looked as though the fast-finishing Deploys Alone was going…

Bellarine Beauty puts in a solid debut performance to finish 4th

Bellarine Beauty stepped out on debut in Race 2 at Seymour yesterday afternoon, with jockey Craig Wiliams on board. The field narrowed down to 9 runners, with many of them solidly in the market and having their first starts. 3YO filly Bellarine Beauty jumped out of the gates a tad slower than what we have seen in her trials and struggled to find a place in the field, eventually settling 3 wide the trip. Despite this, and being bumped at the 200m by the eventual winner and race favourite, she still managed to hit the line nicely and finish 4th.…
