The Melbourne Racing Club initiative to have its 9000 members take part in ownership of horses paid dividends at the Sandown Hillside today.

The aptly named Members Joy looks to have a bright future after playing with four opponents in the Swettenham Dash For Cash (900m) on debut.

The Robert Smerdon-trained two-year-old filly revelled on the slow seven rated track after she bungled the start.

Jockey Michael Rodd had no hesitation in kicking up to lead.

The daughter of Hussonet and Rosa’s Spur with her natural speed burnt off Jacaranda Avenue in the straight and won under a hold.

The $85,000 Magic Millions purchase may have a date at the Gold Coast in the $2m Magic Millions Classic (1200m) on January 14.

“Nine thousand owners and it pays $1.70,  you are just looking for somewhere to hide if it gets beat,” Smerdon joked.

“She had a set back coming back from the pool and lost a bit of skin otherwise she would have run Cup week.

“She has a great consititution, a real little goer and copes really well, she could have another run or have a break.

“The Magic Millions is worth considering, she just copes well.

“She is certainly not at the end of it, it (Magic Millions) might be an idea.”

Members Joy was bought by the race sponsor Swettenham Stud and leased back to the MRC.

The syndicate leader, the former go-getter journalist Josh Rodder, came up with the ownership idea.

Twenty five members were at the track and the Club shouted the bar for the members after the victory.

Third placegetter Mrs Gray ran on well and will be better suited to longer races.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five
    foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!
