Red Mirage

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

Red Mirage was bought in Autumn 2022 as a five-time winner from just 14 starts, who ran well all season before we bought him. He was beaten under a length in a Class 2 handicap over a mile at Goodwood on his final run that year, 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 last autumn from our trainer, Andrew Balding, and joined John Quinn in Yorkshire. Quinn’s record for improving older horses has been exceptional, including most notably, three-time Group 1 winner, Highfield Princess. When you purchase a share in Red Mirage, you will gain instant access to a wealth of past content and updates for the horse since RaceShare launched in November 2022. As we are nearing the end of our syndicate year, renewal fees will be due soon, so we have made significant drops in the current prices of shares in each of our five horses, because owners will soon be invited to renew. The new syndicate terms will start again on November 10, 2023 and will run for 12 months. For additional clarity, if you purchase the share now, it still ends on 9 November 2023 and you will need to pay the renewal fee as detailed on each horse profile below. The reduced share price allows you to buy in now at a price that reflects the time remaining in the current syndicate term.

The plan

This season, Red Mirage has already finished fourth in a £50k handicap at the Chester May meeting and finished fourth in a decent handicap at Haydock, on ground that was considered too fast for him.

Red Mirage is looking well-handicapped on his best form and we are looking forward to seeing where he heads next.
