iskander.com leasing enjoys success with Charlie Britt
Young Gosford trainer Charlie Britt has been having a run of success with iskander.com’s horses of late.
Britt had Donna’s Honour (Honour’s List – Donna Leila) perfectly prepared for a first up 1100m race at Gosford yesterday, which she won with ease for jockey Corey Brown, peeling away from them in the straight for a handy $8 win.
The satisfied trainer commented "we weren’t sure if the distance might have been a bit short for her, but her trackwork has been terrific so we were fairly confident that if she stayed in touch she would have a chance. She will only improve over a little bit more and we are looking forward to some metropolitan success with her this preparation."
The win made it two from two for the iskander – Britt combo, who finished 2008 on a high note by winning the last at Gosford with another leasing syndicate filly, Pure Drama, also ridden by Brown. The Pure Theatre filly is a serious handful before races, and trainer and jockey both agreed she could easily be a black type contender once she matures and settles down.
Britt trains around 20 horses from his Gosford stables, which enables him to pay close personal attention to their every training requirement. The training environment at Gosford is also a plus "the synthetic track here is excellent, and we regularly swim and wade the horses in the salt river that is adjacent to the track – we can cater to their every need and it is a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere than in the city."
Of course Britt and iskander are hoping to add to their recent success with some metropolitans wins in the near future.
iskander.com’s John Peoples commented "both fillies are showing plenty of promise and have pulled up from their races well. We also have another promising individual who will have head to Cessnock for his first start on Tuesday next week. Introductions (Honours List – Matchmaking) has also shown plenty of promise and there are still some leasing shares available in the horse – no doubt these will be snapped up after Tuesday’s run."
