Joe Pride isn’t about to change the way he trains despite landing a Warwick Farm winner he believes could have set a new benchmark for his stable.

Pride mostly leaves the hustle and bustle of two-year-old racing to trainers such as Gai Waterhouse, Peter Snowden and Godolphin’s John O’Shea.

But he was happy to join them with a juvenile winner on Thursday when Kentucky Miss made a successful debut on a rain-soaked track in the TAB More Than Just Winning Handicap.

“I’d have to check, but I reckon that’s the earliest I’ve ever trained a two-year-old winner,” Pride said.

“I tend to get two-year-old winners at the end of the season. I’m pretty sure that’s the earliest. I know I’ve never had one before Christmas.”

Pride was one of the few Sydney trainers to turn up to the meeting that was postponed for 24 hours because of wet weather.

Most of his colleagues are trying to buy next year’s Magic Millions winner as Australia’s series of yearling sales kicks off on the Gold Coast.

Pride said if he had any intention of upping the ante in the two-year-old stakes, he would have been among the Gold Coast buyers.

Not that Pride doesn’t expect to have more success with his racing babies before the season is over with Kentucky Miss, the first winner for new sire Foxwedge, to show the way.

“She’s out of a very fast American mare and we’ll be looking to make the most of her two-year-old year,” he said.

“She’s got a bit of an advantage in that she’s quite precocious.”

Pride finished the meeting on his home track in the same way he started it – with a winner.

Slydini ($10) was first-up from a spell but the sprinter finished over the top of stablemate and favourite Anecdote ($3.50) to win the TAB.com.au Handicap.

“I didn’t think there was as much in it as the market had between them,” Pride said.

Despite his double, Pride conceded training honours for the meeting to Chris Waller who prepared three winners.

Apprentice Brodie Loy didn’t ride on Thursday after being stood down by his master David Pfieffer.

And after a hearing before the first race, stewards found the deed of apprenticeship between Loy and Pfieffer should be terminated.

The apprentice will be allowed to fulfil rides at Gosford and Canterbury before continuing a topsy-turvey career with a new stable.
