Comparing two miRunners fillies by one of Australia’s most sought after sires – Not A Single Doubt

There is sound reason behind why two out of the seven horses chosen by miRunners so far are by leading Australian sire Not A Single Doubt. Not a Single Doubt is one of the most sought after sires in Australia, with Arrowfield Stud saying that “it’s the raw, precocious speed that he injects into his progeny that makes them so popular with trainers – they are simply born to run”. The miRunners model which empowers high quality acquisitions at affordable prices, brings the progeny of Not A Single Doubt (which is out of reach for most), into play. Not A…

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.

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…
