"Trevor,and I spent a lot of time with one another in France last year and I knew he was coming out to Australia with his family for a holiday so I thought it would be good to let him have a drive at some of the Australian tracks," Day said.
"When I found out the dates that he would be finished his tour that he was doing here in Australia, I looked at the calendar and saw that the meeting which was closest for us on Friday was Leeton and asked him if he was still keen to come on a four hour drive each way and he said sure."
Day was full of praise for the Canadian star and is hoping he can assist him pick up some drives at Goulburn on Sunday afternoon.
"He passed 5000 winning drives recently, has driven more winners than any other Canadian driver, has had nearly 27,000 drives, and won $13 million dollars in stakes which is a good effort considering he only took out his licence in 1994."
"I was going to try and get him a drive at Menangle on Saturday night but seeing it is such a big night I thought we might just go and watch the two Inter Dominion heats at the track instead but he will be at Goulburn on Sunday too so I'm hoping he can pick up a few drives there as well."
Day confirmed that Henry had enjoyed his Australian experience so far.
"Yeah they're enjoying the trip for sure, there is even some talk of them coming back again in the future, hopefully one of my horses can do the right thing by him on Friday at Leeton."
