Leasing is an exciting way to taste the thrill of racehorse ownership. Unlike syndication, leasing involves the lessee contributing to the upkeep of the horse such as training fees, pretraining fees & agistment fees whilst also having your name in the racebook & receiving prizemoney for races won.

Our most successful lease story to date has to be FARAWAY TOWN who was purchased for $200,000 at the Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sale by Mr & Mrs Francis & Christine Cook. FARAWAY TOWN has since accumulated almost $850,000 in prizemoney for her connections as well as being GROUP 1 placed as a 2YO and also a recent GROUP 3 winner! Not to mention also claiming the $325,000 women’s bonus in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic!

Exosphere x She Goes To Rio 17' Filly

GET IN QUICK!!! Purchased by Mr & Mrs Francis & Christine Cook for $230,000 from the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale. A sharp filly with a great attitude! She is a very efficient mover with a lovely action & almost looks like she is floating when she is walking which generally translates to galloping well. She also has a lovely feminine head with an intelligent eye who was very switched on to what was going on at the sales complex at the Gold Coast. She has the scope and size to continue to grow, continuing to improve physically as a 3YO and on to an older horse. She has very good length of body & a magnificent overstep which equates to a good length of stride. Extremely good depth of girth, this is important to house good sized lungs. The larger the lungs, the greater the oxygen intake enabling peak performance under racing conditions. We are absolutely delighted to be given this filly to train by Mr & Mrs Francis & Christine Cook who are fantastic supporters of the stable and we look forward to sharing her racing career with everyone. The ownership group of this filly will be an all female syndicate who will be hoping to win the $500,000 Ladies Racing Bonus this time next year, just as our very own Faraway Town did in 2016. Not to mention that she is nominated for the $10M Magic Millions Race Series.
