Episode one finds 4-time Group 1 winner, Darley-Godolphin’s popular Hartnell at his first Sydney Royal Easter Show.  Plus an interview with prolific racing owners Frank and Christine Cook about their dedication to their ex-racehorses as they sponsored the 2023 Thoroughbred Sport Horse Association’s National Championships late last year.


In coming weeks TAG will feature aspiring Paris Paralympic competitors with expert training through Equine Pathways Australia, with EPA on the lookout for a new thoroughbred to add to its training program for elite para-riders.

This year’s TSHA National Championships will feature a number of well-known thoroughbreds and their riders with several follow up stories to come from Krissy Harris’s incredible showcase of thoroughbred athleticism and varied competition skills.

Dothraki is enjoying his second career.

And in this series there’s a new segment, Arrowfield Stud’s Beyond the Winning Post: Where Are They Now? Catch up with former Triple Crown and Snowden Racing star, the original Australian Dothraki in episode one - the 13 year old a great example of the calm and willing attitude of so many off track thoroughbreds.

Don’t miss the 5 episodes in Series 1 of Tag for 2024 – airing at 7.30pm eastern on Sky Thoroughbred Central (Foxtel Ch 528) and through various online avenues after its premier broadcast.
