The Melbourne Racing Club will launch a new horse ownership initiative for its members at Caulfield this Saturday. Under the banner of the ‘MRC Members Horse Club’, all MRC Members automatically become ‘owners’ of two horses leased from Swettenham Stud.
The MRC Horse Club will race two fillies with Caulfield trainers Mick Price and Robert Smerdon. Haumea (Encosta de Lago) will be trained by Price while Smerdon will put the polish to an unnamed filly by Swettenham Stud sire Bianconi.
Members will be able to submit names for the Bianconi filly and can design a set of racing colours for both horses to carry in races.
The official launch of the MRC Members Horse Club will take place at Caulfield on Saturday. Both fillies will be paraded after Race 3.
