Winner, winner! Kilkenny racehorse has won whopping €10,000,000 so far this year
A horse bred in county Kilkenny is taking the racing world by storm after winning the two biggest races in the world so far this year.
Mishriff, a four-year old bay horse, has won more than €10 million this season already.
The father of Mishriff, Make Believe, stands at Ballylinch Stud on the grounds of the Mount Juliet Estate in Thomastown. Both Mishriff and Make Believe are owned by Prince AA Faisal of the Royal House of Saud.
Under the guidance of Kildare born jockey David Egan and trained in England by John Goosden, Mishriff has shocked the racing world by firstly taking the world’s richest horse race – the $20,000,000 Saudi Cup last month on dirt, netting his connections a tidy $10,000,000 winners cheque.
Mishriff followed this victory up with a win last weekend at the $6,000,000 Dubai Sheema Classic raced on grass, netting another $3,000,000 for connections.
Once converted, it equates to a cool €10,658,000 in winnings for just two races.
The horse will now return to its stables in Newmarket in England and prepare for the European flat season, although no races have been confirmed for the super horse as yet.
