Tan Wins Encouragement Award


Ran Tan has won the Western Australian Racing Trainer’s Association Encouragement Award for December.

Tan rode his first winner at his 13th ride when guiding the Jarrad Humphries-trained Ruling Force at Bunbury last month.

Tan settled Ruling Force in second position before he kicked clear in the straight to defeat Assets ‘N’ Cash by a half-length.

Tan, indentured to Stephen Miller, ran two placings at Esperance’s season-opening meeting on November 29.
