Otago bred Junior reinsman Jack Trainor will try his luck in New South Wales in the near future after taking up a position with leading Australian trainer Shane Tritton. Trainor, who moved from Dunedin to Christchurch at the tender age of 16, had a 6 month stint at Graham & Paul Court’s before taking up a position at Cran Dalgety’s Kentuckiana Lodge, where he has been ever since. “Cran is a great trainer who has taught me a lot, but now it’s time to try my luck somewhere else,” said Trainor. Trainor also said he was very thankful to everyone else that had given him a go. Trainor has racked up 17 wins in just over two seasons of racedriving in New Zealand, including 10 wins in his debut season. His first win was on Hip Hop Anvil in September of 2011. "I'm on a one-way ticket. I'll just see how it goes, but I want to make the most of my junior claim over there," said Trainor. “Shane’s team is absolutely flying at the moment and he has a lot of nice types so I can’t wait to get over there.” Tritton also recently took on young Australian sensational Lauren Panella, who is an employee of his Hunter Valley stable and his first string driver. “Lauren will outdrive her claim very soon, so hopefully I will get some good opportunities.” When Trainor made his move to Newcastle, Australia official on Facebook, Panella responded by saying “Welcome to the good life buddy”, while Tritton just reminded him not to forget his work boots. Shane Tritton is the son of former successful Australian trainer Peter Tritton, who subsequently relocated to North America. He already has Newcastle trainers’ premiership under his belt as his training career continues to gain momentum. Tritton  is currently preparing much improved pacer Suave Stuey Lombo (1:51.8) for a crack at the New Zealand Cup, while his other stable star, Mach Beauty, is getting ready for a shot at the Miracle Mile. Trainor will fly out on Wednesday (September 25) but will be available for any driving engagements up until then. Good luck Jack! *Attached is a interview with Jack Trainor after he won his first race. By Mitchell Robertson
