As Dodgey heads off for a spell I just wanted to send you a short message of thanks for everything you have done to date organising visits, providing updates and being around on race days etc. Its great to get the website updates and audios and to be kept in the loop. This is my first dabble in a race horse and I'm having a great time and really enjoying it. Hopefully when Dodgey returns he will be bigger and better than ever and we can really have some fun. 

Scott Wilson, Scott Wilson, Racehorse Owner

Over the years my friends and I have raced several horses with various trainers & syndicators. We find Michael & Paul of Adrenaline Thoroughbreds easily the best we have used. The communication & willingness to accommodate our requests are second to none.

Rod Warren, Racehorse Owner

I would not hesitate to recommend Adrenaline Thoroughbreds to anyone interested in owning race horses. Adrenaline's web-based Owner's Dashboard is first class. I currently have shares in three horses & watching them evolve into elite race horses is very rewarding.

Les Ham, Racehorse Owner

Having a horse with Adrenaline has to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have horses with others as well but the updates I receive from Michael and Paul set them apart. I feel like I am kept in the loop with every single aspect of my horses, even when they are spelling. Recently Michael even picked me up and drove me to Toowoomba to see my horse spelling.

Andrew Lang, Racehorse Owner

Adrenaline Thorougbreds has enabled us to take our first exciting step into the world of being a racehorse owner. The whole journey so far has exceeded our expectations – not just because our first horse, Epsilon, has turned out to be a cracker of a horse, but also because we have felt part of the whole experience.

Kelvin and Peta Crosby, Racehorse Owners

Our Horses

At Adrenaline, we make it our mission to find the best value thoroughbreds for our owners.

Purchase prices for Australian thoroughbreds are extremely variable. At the 2013 Magic Millions yearling auction in January, the average price at the fall of the hammer was $132K and the top priced thoroughbred sold for $1.35M. We seek out the middle ground (usually $50-$75K) to remain affordable for our owners without compromising on breeding, type and racing potential.

We verify our decisions in consultation with our industry partners, Tony Gollan (trainer), Kristen Manning (pedigree analyst) and Phil Burguez (veterinarian).

What do we look for in a racehorse?

  • Pedigree is important, providing invaluable insight into a horse’s genetic capacity and appetite for racing. We aim to dig where there’s oil with a particular focus on finding horses with proven success in Australian conditions.
  • Not all horses are bred or built to run early – some won’t race until they are three or four-years-old. And the wait isn’t always easy to take. We look for forward, precocious horses that are most likely to race as two-year-olds.
  • We aim for strength and longevity in your horse’s career and use 20 years’ industry experience to seek out thoroughbreds with good conformation that are physiologically sound.

We are always happy to discuss our approach with you.
