Learie struck up a good part­ner­ship with the Harold Chadee trained old-stager Buf­fa­lo Sol­dier which he guid­ed to vic­to­ry at the cen­tralised venue, San­ta Rosa Park, Ari­ma, two months ago

Lenny said, “I like, my broth­er, is very hap­py for the great start to the sea­son and hope our year is even bet­ter than last sea­son. We en­joy it here be­cause, at home in Trinidad, we on­ly race one day a week. My broth­er and I are get­ting a chance to ride with good jock­eys, who are ready and will­ing to teach and ex­plain our mis­takes.

“We are learn­ing fast and we are both get­ting bet­ter and we must thank all the train­ers and own­ers who have faith in us and have giv­en us an op­por­tu­ni­ty to bet­ter our­selves

“We are both try­ing to do our best and we hope it will be bet­ter than in 2018.”
