Well now is your chance. Instead of investing time and effort in the prospect that a horse may one day reach these lofty heights, you can purchase one today which will run this Saturday.
The first race on Cox Plate Day is the Inglis Banner, a $250,000 race which is restricted to horses who have been sold through Inglis Bloodstock. The race is for 2 year olds, with the majority of the field having never raced before.
Enter Japanese Slipper, a 2 yo filly which can be yours for just $33,000. To put that in perspective, the prize money for the winner on Saturday is $150,000. Even if the horse finishes 2nd, it will collect a cheque for $45,000.
The horse has had one trial, in which it finished 6th out of a field of 9. While horses are incredibly unpredictable, especially at such a young age, having a horse running at this level is something may racehorse owners could only dream of. Owners may spend ten times this amount and never experience a day like this.
The horse is listed for sale here.
