A little more about us!

miRunners is changing the face of Australian thoroughbred racing, making horse ownership accessible to all Australians.

For most of history, ownership of thoroughbreds was limited to a select few with high costs and obstacles making it incredibly difficult for the everyday Australian to enjoy the ownership experience. The miRunners model has changed that, as we aim to bring the best horses together with the best trainers and make them affordable, so anyone with a passion for racing can experience the thrill of thoroughbred ownership.

No matter if you own a single unit or if you own 20, every unit holder is given the full ownership experience which includes:

  • Updates directly to you from your leading trainer/stable in real time
  • Pro-rata share/s in prize money won
  • Pro-rata share/s in sales proceeds at end of racing career
  • Opportunities to meet your horse and your trainer
  • Private area on race day (dependent on the race day conditions)
  • Certificate of ownership
  • A chance to add a premium thoroughbred horse to your family
  • The opportunity to develop lifelong friendships
  • A dedicated Australia-based customer service team on phone, email and Facebook
  • Share race day experiences with fellow owner’s and the miRunners team

We look forward to you joining our miRunners family!
