Chance To Win Ownership Of Champion Racehorse
Aushorse is offering horse racing fans the ultimate race day experience, to own top-class Royal Descent when she takes part in one of Australia's greatest races, the $3 million Doncaster Mile. Through the generosity of Royal Descent's owner, Gerry Harvey, the winner will receive 10 per cent of any prize money she collects when she contests the Gr1 feature at Royal Randwick on 4 April - some $150,000 if she wins! In addition, the winner and five friends will experience the ultimate day out, with exclusive hospitality on Day One of The Championships (4 April), the chance to be in the parade ring as trainer Chris Waller gives the mare's jockey his final instructions, plus flights for two from any Australian capital city, accommodation and transport to and from the track. To win simply go to www.ownachampion.com.au and tell us what you would call Royal Descent's first foal when she goes to stud. What's more, owner Gerry Harvey will pick the winner and use the name when Royal Descent becomes a mum. "Royal Descent is definitely one of the best horses I've owned and is certainly the best I've got at the moment," Harvey said of the AJC Oaks winner. "It's hard to explain, but when you're in horse racing you look at the winners of those big races and think, 'that would be pretty good.' But when it happens, you can't comprehend the emotion you feel. The excitement just flows through you." He added, "This is your chance to experience those emotions and be part of one of racing's biggest days. I just hope Royal Descent can win the Doncaster and keep everybody very happy." The competition is already up and running and closes at 12pm on Tuesday 31 March 2015. It is open to all Australian residents aged 18 or over.
