‘Ancient Attica’s equine enthusiasts may have had Xenophon, North American bucking broncos may have Buck Brannaman – but, for Sydney’s standardbred species, there is Martin Herbert – with Condell Park’s answer to “the Horse Whisperer” to be inducted as the 2012/13 Bankstown Paceway Trainer of the Year next month (August 2013),’ Bankstown Paceway president Les Bentley has announced.

‘Ellis Street’s very own “Earl of Equitation” will received the 2012/13 Annual Sydney Trainers Premiership Award from His Worship the Mayor, Councillor Khal Asfour, at a star studded awards dinner on Bankstown City Cup Gala Race Night, Friday, August 23rd, 2013,’ Mr Bentley told Harnesslink.

‘With fifty two premiership points from his ten race victories and thirteen placings for the year, Bankstown Paceway’s immediate past president becomes this season’s sultan of standardbred horse schooling – defeating Condell Park trainers Brett Cotterill and Dean McDowell on thirty three points each,’ the current president said.

‘They were followed by Kerry Ann Turner on twenty nine points, Blake Fitzpatrick on twenty eight points, George Stamiris on twenty seven points, Ian Wilson on twenty six points, Peter Rixon on twenty four points, Glen Lobb on twenty three points and last year’s winner, David Waite, on nineteen points,’ Mr Bentley added.

Martin Herbert will be officially installed as the 2012/13 Sydney Trainer of the Year on Bankstown City Cup Gala Race Night, Friday, August 23rd, 2013, at the heart of Australian harness racing, Sydney’s Bankstown Paceway, 178 Eldridge Road, Bankstown – with the first race set to start at 6.30 pm.

Gates open at 5.30 pm and bookings for either the Mayoral VIP awards dinner ($80 per person) or Champions Restaurant buffet dinner ($40 per person) can be made by contacting Bankstown Paceway directly on telephone 02 9708 4111 or via email at racing@bankstownpaceway.com.au
