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. It was an achievement recognised by his peers with Brian and his team being crowned ‘International Trainer of the Year’.

In between that magnificent twin triumph he registered a fine season on the domestic front, highlighted by David Junior’s win in the Group 1 Coral Eclipse at Sandown in mid-summer. Even before the move at the beginning of 2006 to the Sangster family’s legendary estate on the Wiltshire Downs near Marlborough, Brian was widely acknowledged as a trainer going places.
