NORTH WEST Trainer Adam Trinder took just three horses to the races at Devonport last Sunday, and returned home with two winners and a second.
Trinder’s first winner was Kyogle Son for prominent stable client Wayne Roser. “Wayne is my biggest owner, he has anything between 12 and 18 horses with me, he’s terribly loyal, a great stable supporter, good friend and to be honest a mentor to me”, Trinder said
Bidirectional completed the double, taking out the Luxbet.com Benchmark 68, while Om Nom showed a win shouldn’t be too far away with a close second.
Trinder describes last season as a bit of a “shipwreck” with just 29 winners, but the young trainer explained a knee reconstruction set him back.
“I had three operations in all, and for eight months I couldn’t ride track work at all, it made me tougher, and taught me to train by eye and not just feel.”
Trinder is fully recovered and back riding, he has 24 horses in work at his Devonport stable with that number to increase by ten this week.
“I’ve got a few of my Summer Carnival horses coming back Valiant Warrior and Silver Bolt and a few three year olds, including the promising City of Dreams”.
Trinder did have stable star Jerilderie Letter in work but has sent the horse back to the paddock. “I wasn’t completely happy with him so I decided it would be best to tip him out for a few weeks.
