The world of racing gets its own Superinjunction

  • Racing has become the latest sport to be served with a Superinjunction.

    But not the kind that have recently made the press — this Superinjunction is a two-year-old racehorse. The horse, who is in training with Brian Meehan, will make her racing debut in a few weeks.

    Superinjunction has been leased to scurrilous website Popbitch for the Flat season by Racing For Change, the organisation that aims to bring the sport to a wide audience. Popbitch readers will have a chance join the Popbitch racing club and have a share in the horse.

    “There is nothing that feels more like an insider’s world than the Sport of Kings, and so with all the feverish speculation and arguments going on in the media, we thought it was about time there was a Superinjunction everyone could actually talk about,” said Popbitch editor Camilla Wright.

    Rod Street, from Racing for Change, added: “This is an exclusive opportunity for Popbitch readers to get behind the scenes of the sport and experience the thrill of racehorse ownership. It’s also a fantastic opportunity for racing to be able to communicate the excitement of the sport to a new audience of opinion formers.”
