If stable history is a guide, it shouldn’t be too long before Andrew Adkins wins a race on the ageless galloper Monton.

Trainer Ron Quinton is hoping Adkins’ turn comes as soon as Saturday when his apprentice rides the rising 10-year-old at Randwick.

Monton has been a mainstay of Quinton’s Randwick stable for almost five seasons, winning six races to go with the four he won when trained by Tim Martin while closing in on $1 million in stakes.

He’s also been an important horse for jockeys who have had Quinton shape their careers.

It started with Sam Clipperton winning his first black-type race when he rode Monton to victory in the 2011 Festival Stakes.

A few weeks later, Hugh Bowman, who finished his apprenticeship under Quinton, was in the saddle and won the the Villiers Stakes.

Most recently it was Taylor Marshall who got the job done.

Bowman is now firmly entrenched as one of Australia’s best jockeys, Clipperton is out of his time and rides for Godolphin while Marshall has moved on to another stable.

But Monton is still part of the daily routine at Quinton’s and the trainer says the greybeard’s presence is never taken for granted.

“He’s been a wonderful old animal for everyone. He’s been a marvel,” Quinton said.

Despite a narrow defeat on Monton at Randwick on Boxing Day, Adkins has made an immediate impression since arriving in Sydney.

The 18-year-old has ridden a winner for leading trainer Chris Waller as a leg of a New Year’s Day double while more success has followed with two Canterbury victories during the past seven days.

Quinton said Adkins’ grounding on NSW country racetracks was pivotal to early success in the city.

“He’d outridden his country claim, the same as Hugh Bowman did and that initial experience takes them a long way,” the trainer said.

Quinton expects Adkins to become a regular fixture on the Saturday scene in the city and besides Monton in the Maroubra Mile, the apprentice has six other rides including Boss Lane and Magical Stance for his master.

One of his remaining mounts is for Waller with Miss Royale in the Young Farming Champions Handicap marked as one of the shortest-priced favourites of the meeting.
