The name Jack Rees is the latest addition to the winners circle.
With the Rees surname appearing regularly in the winner’s list at tracks throughout south-east Queensland and now even in the western districts of New South Wales, young Jack Rees is the latest winning member of the family.
Mark Rees has prepared many handy performers over the years with names like Turca Kiwi, Western Prince, Wee Jimmy, Longwoods, Enrique Of Malacca and Smile At Carolina among many others all proving to be great money spinners.
Daughter Amy has also steered many of the above mentioned to success while also being utilised by many outside stables with her concession claim in recent times before recently moving interstate.
Amy has landed many winners at Bathurst and surrounding tracks since moving south last year.
Overall, Amy has driven in excess of 140 winners during her time in the sulky.
Now younger brother Jack, 18, has stepped up and gained his maiden success last Thursday at Redcliffe when partnering stable favourite Bronze Ecstasy in the Grand Prix Mazda Aspley & Caboolture Pace over the 2040m distance.
It was start number 11 for Jack in registering his triumph.
Raced by Robyn Rees, the former New Zealand gelding has proven to be a stalwart of the Rees stable.
Bronze Ecstasy is the winner of 14 races, 13 of which have been recorded on Australian soil following his purchase from New Zealand through respected agent Stuart Valentine back in 2014.
The victory of Bronze Ecstasy has now pushed his career earnings past $100,000.
And expect to see more of Jack Rees in the winners’ lists in the coming months.
