More than 150 people took a step towards the thrilling world of racehorse ownership at a special event staged by Thoroughbred Racing South Australia (TRSA) recently.
The initiative aimed to be an introduction to racing, via information from various industry stakeholders, including trainers, breeders and media.
Racing.com’s South Australian expert form analyst James Jordan led a stellar line-up, which included:
- Cornerstone Stud managing director Sam Hayes
- Leading SA trainers Leon Macdonald, Chris Bieg and Richard Jolly
- SA Racehorse Owners Association’s Allie Umoff
- SA Breeders’ Matt Kelly
- South Australian jockey Dylan Caboche
Attendees were treated to parade of two Cornerstone Stud horses, accompanied by an explanation from James and Sam about the conformation of horses and what buyers are looking for when they view thoroughbreds.
At the end of the session those in attendance were treated to an afternoon tea and had the opportunity to stay on, and wander around the Magic Millions complex – which includes the parade arena – and rub shoulders with the who’s who of the racing industry.
In addition, one lucky guest was also the door prize winner of a South Australian produce hamper donated by Magic Millions, plus two tickets to attend SA Derby Day in the Triple M Punters Lounge at Morphettville on Saturday, May 9.
The Magic Millions Masterclass was the first of many similarly-themed industry events being rolled out by TRSA. To be part of these events, join our Ownership monthly newsletter here.
