Horse trainer Luke Dace believes he’s on to a winner in rising star Echo Brava as the horse has already got some great wins and has shown outstanding fitness levels.

Echo Brava is showing great promise having won at his last race of 2013 at Lingfield Park before making a sterling start to the year with a win at Kempton Park.

The four-year-old is due to run again in February and Luke Dace hopes Echo Brava will secure his fifth race win in just 18 races during his career.

Luke Dace said: “ From the moment Echo Brava was brought to my West Sussex training yard by owner Mark Benton I knew he showed real promise for a future racing career.

“When he first came to the yard he was still a baby and hadn’t quite found his niche, It’s taken him time to progress and mature, as he was both mentally and physically weak to begin with.”

“Having just missed out on first place in his most recent race, where he was pipped to the post by a neck at Lingfield, Echo is showing some great potential, he is certainly an exciting prospect.” added Luke.

Luke operates out of a well-equipped yard in Pulborough with ultra-modern facilities including an American Bend, 6 furlong gallop, starting stalls, cross country course, equine swimming pool and veterinary laboratory.

He strives to get the best out of his horses to make training enjoyable and rewarding for their owners, his goal for this year is to extend his client base and his string so that he can train more winning horses.

To attract new owners during February, Luke is offering free travel to the racecourses within a 50 mile radius of his Pulborough yard. Potential racehorse owners who would like to take advantage of this offer should contact Luke or Louise Dace via
