Self-confessed bushie Peter Sinclair will saddle up his first starters on a Sydney track when stablemates Liberty Head ($11 on TAB) and Beacon ($17) line up in the TAB Highway Handicap at Royal Randwick on Saturday.
“Never been to a Sydney track, let alone Randwick ... let’s hope I don’t get lost,” Sinclair smiled.
And bush loyalty has held tight, with Sinclair announcing ace hoop Brooke Stower will retain the ride on Liberty Head.
Sinclair has enjoyed an extraordinary season and Stower has been there every step of the way.
“To me, the decision to put Brooke on Liberty Head was a no-brainer.
"As far as I’m concerned, it’s the right thing to do considering the winners she’s ridden for me this season – she’s given me my best season so far and I’ve been training horses for more than 30 years.”
The 2019/2020 season has been Sinclair’s best since saddling his first runner back in the late 1980s.
He trained a personal-best five winners on his home track last November – Elle Valentina, Samphire Hoe, Happens Nomore, Mymill and Master Cramsie – and backed up a few weeks later with a quartet of winners at Moree Race Club’s huge Christmas meeting.
In May this year he led back four winners at Moree, with Stower on board all four – Crystal Billy, Disco Mo, More Than Good and Ayeteem.
