Today at Bathurst races a mare goes around in a BM 58 race.

Her name is LAUGHARNE (Dylan Thomas-Lorride). You pronounce that Lar Harn.

Anyway, she will be facing the starter for the 121st time. And she’ll be a $101 chance.

Her trainer, Brian Young, who prepares her out at Dubbo has had just the one winner in his last 60 or so runners – a Non-Tab winner late last year.

The previous winner before that for Young, was this mare back in 2017 – when she got home in the mud, on a Heavy 9 track at Wagga.

It’s been 3 years since she last won a race and it begs the question, has she had enough?

I looked up some stats to see if I could shed some light on the question. Racehorses in Australia on average (and these vary wildly because of sex and stud duties etc) but on average covering every horse, a racehorse in this land races 26 times during its career. If you can get more than that, good for you!

Remember, this old mare, a rising 10YO, steps out for race number 121. She has won $194, 940 in prizemoney over the years. She’s won 6 and placed 27 times. Only a win today takes her past $200,000.

She first began racing as a 3YO in 2014 when 6th at Mudgee. Four starts later she won her first race, a maiden at Dubbo on a Soft 5.

Her best runs have been in the wet.

Now, we all know horses love to run. Nearly all of them love to race.

But is there a time when desire wanes?

I’m just asking for a friend.

I wish this mare all the best this afternoon. She’ll be out the back door early and she will give her best again, and may make ground late.

The track will be a Soft 5 and Shaun Guymer rides.
