Corey Brown has worn John Singleton’s colours to a Group One win on star mare More Joyous and believes the owner has another big-race prospect in Strawberry Boy.

Brown says a good race is within reach for the four-year-old this campaign and hopes to stick with him after the gelding’s effortless first-up success at Warwick Farm on Saturday over 1300m.

“I would like him to get into those nice races without Nash’s weight,” Brown said, hoping trainer Gai Waterhouse’s heavyweight stable jockey Nash Rawiller would have to forgo the ride.

“I would be pretty excited about him.”

Brown rode More Joyous in the 2010 Group One George Main Stakes in the famous royal blue colours with white crossed sashes.

He went into the Carnes Hill Market Place Handicap knowing Strawberry Boy, favourite at $2.60, had plenty of talent but admitted he was surprised at how well the galloper felt underneath him as he toyed with his opposition, winning by 2-1/4 lengths.

“He’s a very nice horse. I watched his replays including a win of his at Hawkesbury (in March) and I thought ‘how good is this’, so he didn’t surprise me because I knew he could do it,” Brown said.

“But he did surprise me just how well he did it when I was on his back today.

“He relaxed beautifully once he had the horse (Agister) on his inside in the lead and it was pretty much all over after that.”

Waterhouse said Strawberry Boy would continue to improve as he stretches out in distance and the gelding is among nominations for the Caulfield Cup.
