Red Mirage

Flat Sprinter 6yo Chesnut Gelding 16.1hh
  • Sire: Showcasing Dam: Duchess Dora

Red Mirage produced his best effort in 2023 on his first run of the season at Chester back in May, when finishing fourth at the track’s feature meeting of the year off a high level handicap mark of 92. He was only a quarter of a length behind Witch Hunter, who later won a Group 2, so the form of the race was very good. Red Mirage also produced a good effort at Haydock in July. He is now well-handicapped off a mark of 78, 12lbs below his last winning mark, so we are very hopeful that a winter break out of training will freshen him up. Given his new rating, a return to form could see him win multiple races in the 2024 season. The share price is all inclusive with no monthly costs and an optional renewal payment. You will be able to download and print share certificates and photos of your horse(s) via the login section of the website upon purchasing a share (or receive them by post if choosing a postal welcome pack at checkout).

The plan

Red Mirage is back in training after enjoying a winter break and is preparing for the 2024 Flat turf season, starting in April. He has run his best races over 7f with cut in the ground, so we look forward to seeing him back on the track in 2024 and seeing if he can capitalise on his handicap mark.

  • Five-time winner, Timeform rated 100 at his peak
  • Well-handicapped off a BHA rating of 78, 12lbs below his last winning mark
