Watch the video below to learn more about Michael’s vision for Michael Costa Racing.

Whilst respectful of and a dedicated student of racing history and traditions, Michael Costa Racing is committed to finding, developing and exploiting new ideas, techniques and technology that will improve every facet of the traditional training model.

Michael Costa Racing’s training philosophy is to treat each thoroughbred in its stable as an “elite athlete”. To realise this philosophy head trainer Michael Costa, the youngest person ever to be granted a trainers license in the Sydney Metro area, has sought out some of Australia’s most experienced and successful racing specialists, all of whom share Michael Costa Racing’s training “vision”. The resulting team’s collective knowledge of cutting edge equine sports science combined with their racing experience and true horsemanship is revolutionary in Australian Racing.

Michael Costa Racing’s approach to the client experience is also ground breaking in the industry. Racing is the “Sport of Kings” and we are resolved to make ownership in a Michael Costa Racing trained horse more than a share in highly tuned equine athlete but a passport to all the glamour, excitement and fun racing has to offer.
