This opportunity may never happen again. A chance to buy into a horse being set for some of Melbourne’s biggest staying races, who’s won his last two races.
If you are one who dares to dream big and having a runner in Melbourne’s biggest staying races is on your life’s bucket list, then read on.
Melbourne’s biggest staying races, including the big one (which for now will remain unmentioned) have in recent times been dominated by extreme wealth from all around the world. The dominance of elitism is something that many would argue has taken the gloss off that first Tuesday in November.
Which leads us into a likely once in a lifetime situation playing out for any Australian who has ever had their own November dreams.
The Racing League (TRL) which has been established to make elite racing ownership affordable, recently acquired a regally bred stayer by the all conquering Galileo. Coming off a last start win, Yulong Captain went into yesterday’s Hamilton Cup newly owned by thousands of owners in TRL’s The Vic Husslers. The Vic Husslers owners are a part of The Racing League’s new revolution in racing, where they own a team of 6 elite horses for just $200.
After destroying the field in his first start for his new trainer (the also regally bred Matt Cumani), Yulong Captain is now a possible starter in The Lexus Stakes, which is the final lead up race to The Melbourne Cup held on Derby Day.
Hear directly from Matt Cumani post Saturday’s dominant display in the Hamilton Cup below:
With COVID restricting the usual international tidal wave of the world’s best stayers raiding Australia’s most sought after race, maybe, just maybe this dream will continue. For his owners who, having bought in for $200, have jumped the fence and are now living the dream, it is not lost on them that this opportunity may never present to them again.
After buying in for $200, why wouldn’t they dream!
