Dec

Registrations are now open for the next series of the award-winning ‘Own the Dream’ Event Series, which is giving entrants the chance to win the ultimate racing prize – a share in their very own racehorse.

Hosted by Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA) in conjunction with Magic Millions WA the competition will see participants gain valuable insights into the racing industry across a series of free events from 16 January 2021. Events will include a racing insight tour, masterclass, trackwork breakfast and race day experience.

The series will culminate at the Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sales on February 15, where three lucky teams will each secure a share in a yearling.

Teams of four or six members can nominate for the competition, with every event attended earning an entry into the final draw.

Prizes for the 2021 Own the Dream Event Series include:

  • 1st Place: $10,000 share in a yearling purchased at the 2021 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale, plus two years of training fees.
  • 2nd Place: $7,000 share in a yearling purchased at the 2021 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale, plus $7,500 in training fees.
  • 3rd Place: $5,000 share in a yearling purchased at the 2021 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale, plus $3,500 in training fees.

All eligible teams who are present at the final event will also receive a $1,500 voucher to use towards the purchase of a share in a Westspeed Platinum bred thoroughbred at the Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale.

Own the Dream Ambassador Brittany Taylor said she was excited to be part of the fourth edition of the popular competition, providing a pathway for those interested in experiencing the thrill of owning a racehorse.

“In my opinion, nothing compares to the excitement of owning a racehorse and to see your horse cross the finish line first,” Ms Taylor said.

“It’s hard to describe, but the thrill and joy it brings to everyone involved is like no other – especially if you own the horse with a group of friends or family,” she said.

“I love being part of an initiative which breaks down some of the barriers to ownership, and show people that it doesn’t have to be expensive, and that everyone can be involved – whether you know nothing about racing or you’re an expert”.

“My favourite part of the competition is seeing past participants celebrating their first win in the winner’s circle – the joy on their faces says it all.”

RWWA was recently awarded the prestigious 2020 Australian Marketing Institute WA Event or Brand Experience State Award for Marketing Excellence for its 2020 Own the Dream series.
