Red Mirage

Flat Sprinter 5yo Chesnut Gelding 16.1hh
  • Sire: Showcasing Dam: Duchess Dora

Red Mirage (watch his introduction video) is RaceShare’s highest-rated purchase to date with a Timeform rating of 101. The five-year-old gelding is a five-time winner from just 14 starts, who ran well all season in 2022. He was beaten under a length in a Class 2 handicap over a mile at Goodwood last time, just behind subsequent York winner Substantial (who fetched 160k at the same Tattersalls sale, despite being lower rated). Red Mirage was the subject of a favourable report at the sales from our trainer, Andrew Balding, and has transferred to John Quinn in Yorkshire. Quinn’s record for improving older horses has been exceptional, including most notably, three-time Group 1 winner, Highfield Princess.

The plan

Red Mirage is now at John Quinn's yard in Malton, North Yorkshire. After a winter holiday, John will be bringing Red Mirage back into full training, and there is the possibility of an all-weather campaign early in 2023. Red Mirage has already won three races on the all-weather so has proven himself on the surface. On the turf, Red Mirage will have a host of major 7f handicaps in his sights, with the Victoria Cup and Royal Ascot’s Buckingham Palace Stakes as possible targets.
