LOOKOUT Victoria – another South Australian family is on its way.
Having sold their Two Wells property the Brewin clan is crossing the border.
Headed by patriarch Justin, the Brewins will settle in one of the state’s main harness racing hubs, Bendigo.
Justin’s talented concession reinsman-son Jayden will make the trip this weekend with a small team of horses.
The remainder of the operation will be completed at the end of the month.
Given the previous migrations have including John and Lance Justice, Geoff Webster and the Sugars family, it shouldn’t take long for the Brewins to cut a regular path to the winners’ circle.
“I’ll be driving in Port Pirie on Saturday night then heading to our new home in Bendigo on Sunday,” Jayden said.
“The folks will stay in South Australia and wrap things up until the end of the month before also coming over.”
A multiple premiership winning concession driver, Jayden celebrated a personal milestone when triumphant with Nevada Esmeralda at Globe Derby yesterday.
Leading throughout to account for Keayang Shakenbake and Edee, Nevada Esmeralda rated 2:01.3 over 1800 metres to provide Jayden with his 200th win.
Jayden registered his initial victory at the same venue with The Octagon on July 18, 2016.
“I didn’t realise it was my 200th until I heard it broadcast after the race,” Jayden said. “It’s a nice milestone and hopefully one of many to come.
“For example, it will be good when I drive my first win for Dad from our new place in Victoria.”
