Brian set a benchmark for others in the profession to aspire to in years to come when bookending his first season at Manton by winning two of the world’s most valuable races, The Dubai Duty Free Group 1 in the Middle East and The Breeders Cup Turf Grade 1 in the USA, yielding staggering prize money of over £5,000,000.
