Another Brown Joins The List by The Gurkha

Third generation trainer Trent Brown didnít take long to register his first win as a trainer when he prepared Foryouandme to score an impressive win in the Worldbase Bulk Haulage Handicap (1300 m).

The son of Ricky Brown made his debut as a trainer at Esperance on March 3 with Foryounadme finishing an eye-catching second to Bonsoleil and his win was far from unexpected on Saturday.

"He slipped badly at the start in Esperance and his work since then had been pleasing. It really is a dream start to my training career and hopefully we can have a good year here in Kalgoorlie." Trent Brown told The Gurkha "Dad (Ricky) has been busy at work so we decided that I would take out a license and give it a crack."

Brown prepared four runners last Saturday with the hugely talented Black Tycoon impressing with his fast finishing third in the Worldbase Concrete Cartage Handicap (1100 m) a portent of things to come for the Blackfriars gelding.

"He just found the 1100 metres too short. He looks set for a big year. We plan to step him up to 1400 metres on April 21 and with luck we would like to see if he can get over 2000 metres at Belmont Park in late May."

The 24 year old Brown was also rapt to see his Uncle Robert train Massivo to win the second race on the program.

"He looks a nice horse for Robert. Anyone who saw his trial would have been keen to back him on Saturday and Holy Sandgroper also ran a blinder when finishing second to Hiatus."

The competitive Brown family could be a force to be reckoned with this year with Rod Brown coming off a personal best season last year and Rickie still involved with a couple of horses as well.

"Dad has two in work and he should be producing his first runners in a couple of weeks." Brown concluded
