Clement Assistant Colebrook Saddles Winner

keeneland start

Ben Colebrook has been well known at Keeneland as an assistant to trainer Christophe Clement, spending much of the year here with Clement’s young horses and horses coming off a layoff. Now along with handling a few horses for Clement, Colebrook is training 22 horses of his own that are stabled at the Keeneland Training Center on Rice Road. He recorded the first victory of his career Saturday when he sent out Mt Tronador to win the 10th race at Keeneland.

“I was pretty optimistic,” Colebrook, 35, said about winning the race with Mt Tronador, who was his eighth starter since he saddled his first runner at Churchill Downs in November 2012. “I thought he’d run well because he’d run a good race at Kentucky Downs (on Sept. 25), so I thought he’d be tight and fit for this race. He’d been training very well, so I was cautiously optimistic.”

With James Graham aboard, Mt Tronador held off the late-charging Mutasaawy to win the 1 1/16-mile maiden special weight race by a half-length in 1:46.23. The Rock Hard Ten gelding races for Darrell and Lendy Brown and English Estate.
