Want To Buy A Horse Racing On Cox Plate Day? Here Is Your Chance

554974-moonee-valleyEverybody dreams of racing a horse during the Spring Carnival. The lure of brushing shoulders with celebrities is great, not to mention the prize money isn’t too shabby either.

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.
