On Sunday May 9, The Racing League (TRL) had their first horse step out onto the track at Mudgee. The Sherpa, trained by Brett Cavanough, was purchased for the NSW Tycoons in TRL $137,000 (inc GST) from Gerry Harvey just a few weeks ago. This was a significant moment for owners in The Racing League as it was the first time a jockey was seen wearing the silks of any team in TRL!
After traveling 3 wide with no cover in the run, The Sherpa finished a gallant second, just one length behind the odds on favourite in the race. It was a great start for TRL on the track, in particular the NSW Tycoons.
So, what is TRL and how does it work?
We all love to cheer for our footy team but imagine owning it, and the players!
In TRL’s world first nationwide League Competition you own the team and the players… well, the horses.
In Year 1, ‘The Racing League’ is launching with 4 teams of 6 Horses, each consisting of 2 ready-to-race horses and 4 yearlings.
Choose your team – VIC, NSW, QLD or WA:
- 6 Horses per team
- 4 yearlings + two tried (ready to race) horses
- There is no mark-up on the sales ring purchase price
- Up to 10000 units per team @ $200 per unit
- Creating a salary cap of up to $2million per team
- You and your team name your horses via the online voting system
- Prize-money earned by your horses is distributed to you on a pro-rata basis. No prizemoney is retained by TRL
- All horses sold at the conclusion of their TRL career, must go through a public auction. You share the proceeds on a pro-rata basis. A performance fee applies to TRL (see PDS for more information – links to the PDS can be found at the bottom of this page). So, if a colt develops into a big money stallion, you share the proceeds on a pro-rata basis.
