The sport of horse racing regularly grips the eyes of much of the world when its biggest events and most impressive horses take center stage. 

Horses like Equinox and Arcangelo are highly regarded globally and often dominate headlines, but there is an abundance of racing talent waiting to be discovered. They could well blossom into stars in the coming years.

Here, we will look at a range of horses to keep an eye on in 2024 and beyond. They have experienced several minor successes in their short careers, which hint at the possibility of achieving greater things soon. 

Robusto

Robusto will be entering its third year in professional horse racing in 2024. In 2023, the horse had four wins to its name, the most impressive of which came in a Lingfield handicap last October. 

The stallion should be kept in the mind of keen horse racing fans going into the major events of 2024. 

It is now even possible for fans to make direct investments in the horses they wish to back. Racehorse part-ownership is available in a variety of horses at Raceshare. For example, Robusto is available at $42 per share. 

The price for a stake in Robusto is indicative of how the horse has not quite garnered wide plaudits yet. However, the horse looks poised to make significant leaps in 2024, more wins could arrive, and there could be movements in the share price of the horse across various platforms. 

Aurora Vega

Aurora Vega enjoyed a perfect debut year in 2023 – three races and three wins meant that the horse went into 2024 with an unbeaten career record. 

This year it could be time for the horse to participate in some British events after a glamorous start in its native Ireland. 

Aurora Vega is trained by the famous Willie Mullins, who has guided horses to almost 1000 total race wins throughout his career, and he was also a successful jockey in his day.

Most notably, Mullins has trained the worldwide famous Galopin des Champs – who has won at Cheltenham on several occasions, including in the 2023 Gold Cup. Mullins will inevitably produce another globally known star soon, and Vega has shown signs of being just that.

Many of Mullins’ top horses begin with several race entries in Ireland before making the move to British soil where they can truly make their name known.

Aurora Vega could well be the next W.P. Mullins stallion to secure major success in England. The horse will be one of the runners in the Supreme Novices at Cheltenham this year, which could present its greatest opportunity to break out on the British scene.

In truth, anything can happen in the development of racehorses. Some horses can suffer injuries that prevent their improvement on the track, and others become less cooperative in training. 

This duo has ultimately shown huge potential, and based on their victories so far, they could develop into major stars in the British scene. However, nothing is guaranteed, and a multitude of factors could impact their progress for the greater or the worse. 

We need to see Robusto and Aurora Vega competing at significant events in the United Kingdom to understand how they match up to their opposition. Their records are impressive, although they are both yet to appear on the most demanding stages.

The 2024 calendar will afford them that opportunity, and it could be make or break for two raw but exciting stallions.
