Brent Stanley has served his 9 month disqualification

Victorian trainer Brent Stanley will saddle his first runners in more than a year when two three-year-olds tackle stakes races at Randwick.

Stanley was last year disqualified for nine months for his conduct regarding the the sale of a horse to Hong Kong.

He regained his trainers’ licence last week following a Racing Victoria board meeting.

While his time on the sidelines was taxing for the 38-year-old, it did allow Stanley the chance to reassess aspects of his life.

After he completed his disqualification, his long-term clients returned, while he has also picked up some new ones.

But it was the opportunity to spend time with his wife Paris and young family that showed Stanley another side to life.

“It’s something I love doing as I’ve been in racing all my life so to be forced to step away from it was quite difficult mentally,” Stanley said.

“But I was fortunate enough to have some quality time with my wife and children which I never really had before.

“Sometimes you need to spend a bit more time with your family to realise there’s more important things than training horses and chasing owners for their payment every month.”

Instead of making an hour-and-a-half commute to the training property at Sutton Grange each day, Stanley has bought a property five minutes from the stables which have been operated by Paul Banks in his absence.

Stanley has been active at the yearling sales and hopes to add to his numbers at the Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney next week.

“One thing I’ve learned is that if you want to make it to the top you need horses in the boxes to win races,” he said.

Stanley will be represented by Sweet Sherry in the P J Bell Stakes and Violate in the Carbine Club Stakes on Saturday.

He says Sweet Sherry has improved off her first-up fourth at Flemington earlier in March.

“She’s already a Group Two, Group Three winner and she was only beaten a few lengths in a Golden Slipper when at the end of her preparation,” Stanley said.

“It’s quite exciting to be back with the new times ahead.”
