Brown stable on fire during the winter months

 Winter riches which began with Heavenly Emperor saluting at Flemington during the first week in winter, has been followed with multiple winning performances by stable stars who trekked up the long interstate trip from Melbourne to Darwin.

Kronos started the winners rolling in at Fannie Bay on Owners and Trainers Race day by winning the same race he won the prior year by 5 lengths in fast time of 1:08.61 carrying 62.5 kg for the 1200 metre winning performance.

Kronos followed in his next run with an unlucky 4th being a victim of a bad barrier draw and being caught wide throughout the trip. Kronos will have one more start over his favorite distance in Darwin in the BM 70 on Darwin Cup Day.

Smuggling then went on to win on Day 1 of the carnival win over the same distance as Kronos the week prior scoring by 3.75 lengths in a faster time of 1:06.46.

Second up Smuggling dropped back in distance to the 1100 metre to go down by Clever Tommy who went on to prove that form as being strong going back to back and being a live chance in the Palmerston Sprint.

Smuggling then scoring in the feature race on Day 6 of the carnival revelling in the extra step up in distance to the 1300 metres. Despite drawing the extreme outside barrier in the Corporate Park Cup, Smuggling managed to get into a nice trailing position in 5th and rounding the home turned pulled out wide and the race was never in doubt with Smuggling scoring a commanding win, ending his successive Darwin trip for 2019.

Our other stable winner came on Day 4 of the Carnival when Black Hat on his second attempt to win at Fannie Bay, broke his maiden status. Black Hat was dropping back in distance from his first up appearance where he ran an encouraging 3rd position coming from a long way back, over the 1200 mtr trip, never leaving the fence in a truly run race and a gem of a ride by Mitch Aitken. to win his maiden in good style.

Black Hat is set to have his final Darwin run this trip on Palmerston Sprint day and Brownie is confident that he can go back to back.

Our other runners who travelled up to the Top End for the winter was former overseas galloper Yenhab who was resuming after injury and 3 years away from the races. Yenhab's two carnival runs have shown promise and he will have another shot on Darwin Cup Day.

Former Guineas winner and Krusty unfortunately succumbed to injury and campaign was aborted.

Whilst the Brown stable will make the trk back down the highway to Melbourne and training faciliaty near Ygmabie, Brown is confident that some of his stable stars back in Victoria who are chewing at the bit resume will continue to reap rewards. We have some nice young horses who are progresing nicely and not too far away from having their first up runs for the camp.
