Butt to drive in Victoria

Christchurch reinsman Anthony Butt will drive in Victoria this weekend.

He has drives at Melton on Friday night and at the Gunbower Cup meeting on Sunday. Gunbower is 272 kilometres from Melbourne's central business district.

Victoria trainer Brent Lilley, of Bolinda, invited Butt across the Tasman because his stable drivers - Rodney Petroff (suspended) and Chris Alford - are unavailable. Alford is in the Australian team competing in the trans-Tasman Drivers' Series at Ascot Park on Sunday.

Butt said he usually drove at feature race meetings in Melbourne and Sydney during the summer, but could extend future visits if opportunities arose.

The horseman mostly drives horses trained by his brother Tim and Nigel McGrath, of Christchurch.

''Tim has cut back and Nigel's team is a bit quiet at the moment. The time suits to spend a bit more time over there [Australia],'' Butt said today

Weekly Updates
we are of to Oamaru this Sunday with two great chances. The big boy Franco Harrington is in the Kurow Cup and looks a top hope after a nice hitout mid week at the Ashburton Trails. Pantheon is back in the last and we are expecting an improved performance after his last run at Rangiora. Kimberly is back in the cart as Ant's is taking a well earned break in America and Ireland. Have a great weekend team !!
