Thoroughbred racing is described as the ‘Sport of Kings’. In many ways this is misleading – in Australia at least. While the rich have certainly taken an interest in racing, participation in the sport is not confined to blue bloods or multi-millionaires.
If you want to you can own a racehorse. Owning a horse is much more than watching it race for a few brief minutes every now and then. If you invest in the industry and become part of its lifestyle, one thing should be uppermost in your mind – owning a racehorse is a sport, not a business.
Everyone connected with racing is taking part because they love the sport, the horses, the excitement. It is second to none!
