The sport of Queenslanders

The Queensland Rogues are fast building a reputation as a new force in racing in their state.

One of the founding teams of The Racing League, race day success seems to be a part of this group’s DNA. When looking at this week’s State of Origin and Cameron Smith’s British Open title, this all seems very Queensland right now!

The Queensland Rogues owners who have forked out $260 for their share in 7 premium race horses, sure have some quality in their quiver.  The Big Goodbye, having already won three races and placed 6 times in town for his owners, has set the standard. As of the weekend The Big Goodbye now also has some exciting team mates.  

In what was the first time two TRL horses from different states took each other on, Saturday at Eagle Farm saw The Rogues gelding Hot Spring Gold take on The NSW Tycoons mare Penso A Lei. The honours fell commandingly to Hot Spring Gold however watching how she hit the line and knowing that 2000 metres is Penso’s go zone, this might be the last time that happens.

Carrying the top weight and an outside barrier, Hot Spring Gold put his hand up with a quality finish. Check it out! Some exciting ownership experiences ahead for HSG and his owners.

“One of the best wins ever”!

The TAB stated it as so. And with 30000 views of their post, the debut performance of Larrikin Rogue on Sunday at The Sunshine Coast created a lot of attention. Did that really just happen?

The good news for The Rogues is you rarely see such performances play out, especially for horses making their debut. It paints a bright outlook for Larrikin Rogue’s owners who are now setting him for the millions on offer over the upcoming Magic Millions carnival.

Importantly though it also talks to the joys to be had through TRL’s micro ownership model. This model makes expensive horses affordable and whilst that doesn’t guarantee anything, with winners everywhere the model to date sure is delivering good times for TRL owners nationwide.

The opportunity to own in excitement machines Luna Rocks (NSW Tycoons), Larrikin Rogue (Qld Rogues) and Lethal Thoughts (Vic Husslers) for $260 is still available today.
