Melbourne Cup stats and facts

Racing loves statistics – none more than when you own a racehorse (or win the Melbourne Cup.) Perhaps second only to first-class cricket, the racing industry, those who own, those who train and those who enjoy racing love data, form and stats. So we thought we’d run a quick comparison with the 2018 winner Cross Counter, won (as every miRunners owner will know!) by jockey Kerrin McEvoy, who raced Zoushack at Royal Randwick during this year’s Everest meeting (and apologies for any errors).

The thrill of premium thoroughbred ownership

Nothing compares to the moment you see your own horse parading in the mounting yard. It’s like seeing your baby’s first steps. Especially if it’s your first. Premium thoroughbred ownership is special. Hearing the pre-race comments exclusively from your trainer and jockey, explaining their vision of how they believe the race will play out. Listening to where your horse will sit in the field. Will it sit two back on the rails and make its move on the turn, or is the plan to lead from start to finish? There is no way to explain what goes through an owner’s…
