    IT WAS a case of you can’t have your cake and eat it too for Jayden Brewin during the weekend.

    Turning 19 on Saturday, the wet-behind-the-ears reinsman marked the occasion with a double at Globe Derby.

    The celebrations had a slight sour side, however, when the stewards ‘gifted’ Brewin a 10-day suspension for his winning drive behind Steam Cleaned.

    “It was all going well until then,” joked. “It’s like they stole a slice of my cake!

    “The stewards made their decision and I’ll have to cop it on the chin.”

    Brewin’s initial champagne moment came when he piloted Scrawl to a narrow, and controversial, victory for trainer Scott Pascoe.

    SCRAWL on the inside gained a short half-head verdict over Steinman

    With Scrawl appearing to reach the finishing line at the same time as Steinman, the race was widely considered a dead-heat until Scrawl was declared a short half-head winner.

    “I thought we got there and that’s how the judge saw it,” Brewin said. “That said, I felt he should have won by more.”

    Having his 33rd start of the season, the son of Sportswriter rated 1:57.9 over 1800 metres.

    Steam Cleaned then worked overtime in the ‘death seat’ to account for Shardonant and Happy Max in 2:00.5.

    Prepared by Bob Maloney, the son of Art Major stretched his record to four wins and 16 placings 27 starts.

    “It was a good tough run from him,” Brewin said. “He’s a pretty consistent type.”
