Big Weekend for Apprentices

Jul 23, 2018

It was a big weekend for stable apprentices with Ethan Brown securing enough points with his Rising Stars Final second to win the series whilst Melissa Julius was able to win her first Flemington race aboard Miles Of Krishan. And on Saturday night Beau Mertens celebrated his 21st birthday... milestones all around!

Favourite to be crowned Melbourne's leading apprentice come the end of the season, Ethan has been riding in fine form and was happy to hold off Stephanie Thornton - who has also spent time with us at Cranbourne - in the Rising Stars, noting that he was keen to "thank the trainers and the owners who have supported me."

"It was a great series with great competition from Steph and the other apprentices so I'm very happy to win it."

It was the second win in recent years for us with Beau also successful.
