Not A Royal Doubt: the newest name in the miRunners stable, joining Saganaki and Shezawitness, and three other two-year-olds



Sydney, 25 July 2018 - It has been an exciting day for owners of the third miRunners horse, with another new name that will be on everyone’s lips in future two-year-old thoroughbred races: Not A Royal Doubt.


The name combines elements from the filly’s sire, Not A Single Doubt and dam, Royal Pageant.


Over 400 names were entered by the public, with miRunners owners voting on a short-list of 30. The owner who submitted the winning name first was Neil Todd, a self-confessed novice when it comes racing and thoroughbred ownership.


Not A Royal Doubt is a 2016 filly in very good hands - she’s being trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott. Bought for $275,000 at the Gold Coast Magic Millions in January of this year, she’s one of six yearlings and two-year-olds currently in the miRunners stable. As with all miRunners horses, 1,000 units in Not A Royal Doubt were created and offered for purchase to the public. The unit price is set at one-thousandth the purchase price of the horse, without markup - in this case $275 per unit. Owners also pay $15 per month to cover veterinary fees, management, training and stabling (and this fee drops if multiple units in the same horse are bought).


Not A Royal Doubt sold out in June this year, to 515 individuals buying one or more units. It’s the third to be named, after Saganaki and Shezawitness. Saganaki placed a strong second over 1250m in his recent outing at Taree.  Zoustar x Shack is the next to be named. Units in Rubick x Slainte (trained by Bjorn Baker) and Your Song x Sheeznodoubt (trained by Tony Gollan) remain available.


Steve Brown, founder of miRunners, said, “As with the majority of our owners, Neil is a first-timer, and had never thought he would own, let alone name, a premium race horse. With nearly 2,000 owners, miRunners is a wonderful community of like-minded lovers of race horses. It’s an exciting new experience for people who have not been involved in racing before.”


Australians, from Manly to Perth and from Darwin to Launceston, have bought one or more units in one of more of the six horses now owned by miRunners. Ownership is just a click away by mobile phone or laptop, at mirunners.com.
