Tyler Brett Delights His New Fans
It was an exciting time for lessee owner Chloe Brown on Friday night when a group of her good friends visited Gloucester Park for the first time to watch her six-year-old pacer Tyler Brett contest the $20,000 Community TAB Pace.
Tyler Brett, trained and driven by Brown’s partner Dylan Egerton-Green, caused an upset and delighted his latest band of fans when he charged home to snatch victory as a $40.20 tote outsider.
Tyler Brett, raced on lease by Brown from breeder John Bell, has been a good moneyspinner, earning $132,071 from 15 wins and 15 placings from 49 starts.
After making an unsuccessful bid for the early lead, everything fell perfectly in place for Egerton-Green, who was able to angle Tyler Brett in behind the pacemaker and $1.55 favourite Im Soxy.
“I had no set plans,” said Egerton-Green. “I was just going to roll the gate and probably get a trail behind Vincenzo Peruggia. Tyler Brett’s gate speed is quite good, and some inside of us didn’t muster (early speed), so I kept going and had a crack for the lead.
“And when I failed to get to the front, I was able to take the sit behind Im Soxy.”
