RaceShare hosts first stable visit

Excitement was in the air as we hosted our first stable visit of 2023 at trainer John Quinn’s yard in Malton, North Yorkshire on February 19.

The morning began with coffee and bacon butties as owners chatted and met Lucy, Olivia and Ash from the RaceShare Team, as well as Oli Bell and Ross Brierley, who were also in attendance.

The sun shone throughout the morning as Red Mirage paraded for owners and John Quinn spoke about the history of the yard, the facilities available and his hopes for our horse in 2023.

Owners were also able to ask John questions, and he dove deeper into Red Mirage’s personality and routine day-to-day, as well as recollecting the highs of 2022, as stable star Highfield Princess enjoyed three Group 1 victories in three countries - England, France and Ireland.

The Quinn team truly opened their doors to RaceShare, introducing us to Red Mirage’s stablemates Safe Voyage and Mr Wagyu.

Owners were able to get up close to the horses, seeing in person how beautiful these animals really are. Lots of photos, videos and selfies were taken, especially with Red Mirage.

After a few hours at the Quinn’s yard, many owners joined the RaceShare team at a local pub for a delicious Sunday roast and further discussion around the excitement of the year ahead with our RaceShare horses.

It was fantastic to see owners connecting in person and watch people of all ages seeing first hand how a racing yard operates and the love and care Red Mirage and his stablemates receive.

Owner Matty shared his experience of the day:

"I have only been a racing fan for a few years, so the stable visit to the Quinns' wonderful Highfield Stables was my first ever visit to a racing yard, and it’s safe to say it exceeded my expectations - so good it got me a bit emotional! The Quinns were wonderfully welcoming and it was great to finally meet the very handsome Red Mirage, looks like we will have some fun with him! Not to mention meeting all the other owners for the first time was like meeting family members you didn’t know you had. It really feels like RaceShare are building something very special here and I am fully aboard for the ride!"

We will be holding regular stable visits for RaceShare owners to meet their horses through the year - click here to see our RaceShare horses.
