Corey Brown Back With A Bang

By Brad Gray

While Corey Brown looks back on his stint in Singapore fondly, the jockey is happy to be home and took no time to find his feet in Sydney.

Brown guided the Snowden-trained Royal Navy to an impressive win in the TAB Handicap (1400m).

“It’s just great (to be back home). The support I’ve been offered so far has been a little overwhelming but to get the monkey off the back is even better,” Brown said.

“I watched his runs and his trials and his run at Kembla had plenty of audacity after being shunted out three wide, four wide.”

Royal Navy was impressive at Rosehill

Peter Snowden was as impressed with Brown as he was with the win of the Coolmore-trained colt and has a Group race pencilled in for his next outing.

“It’s probably a bit ambitions but we’re looking towards the Spring Stakes in a fortnight,” Snowden said.

“Definitely a mile and maybe 2000m will suit him.

“It was a good step up in class today and he has always been a horse that promised a fair bit. He’s just been fairly immature. Certainly adding the blinkers to him this prep has made a big difference. He is racing like he works now. It’s good to see him win as good as he did, aided by a great ride.

“I’ve known Corey for a long time. He rode our first Group One winner for Darley when we kicked off. Sousa won the Spring Champion (in 2008). He’s a very, very good rider and it’s a big asset to have a lightweight rider back here and a jockey of his calibre.”
