Trent Brown Keeps Strike Rate in Tact by The Gurkha
Promising young trainer Trent Brown worked wonders on rejuvenated gelding Trentan Dior to get him back into the winners stall last Sunday.
The long striding galloper showed signs over the previous weeks that a return to top form was not far away and some minor gear changes and an aggressive ride from Michael Pateman seemed to do the trick.
“The drop back in class really helped with Trentan on Sunday. He is the first horse I have owned and for him to crack the $100 k barrier on Sunday was a great achievement.” Brown said.
“We have played games with his mind all week in an attempt to turn him on and it seemed to work nicely.”
Brown has trained four winners from his past 11 starters but admitted to becoming frustrated with the form of stable star Black Tycoon.
“I’m not sure if it is a case of putting the raps on him too soon. Both Black Tycoon and Trentan Dior worked together on Wednesday and Black Tycoon beat him by three lengths.”
“After Trentan won I thought the other bloke was a moral.”
“But looking at his run it was still a big effort to come from so far back and his sectional was one of the quickest of the day.”
“We may butter him up this week in a mile or go two weeks into another1600 metres.”
Brown will start the consistent Foryouandme this week over 1600 metres and has recently taken over the training of Chase The Cat from Don Hale.
