THREE WINS, two seconds and two thirds from just 10 starters. That’s Brent McIntyre’s training record in the first two months of the new racing season.
The Macca Lodge proprietor has won twice with the rejuvenated Panspacificflight gelding The Manipulator and with the consistent The Bull Pen, who notched his third win at Invercargill on Saturday.
Brent has won 42 races with small teams since he first took a horse to the track in 1993. He has had a license to train ever since apart from two seasons — 2014-15 and 2015-16 — when Tony Stratford was the Macca Lodge trainer.
Last season was Brent’s best with five wins — two with The Bull Pen, two with Hunterton and one with Captain Thunderbolt.
