Apprentice Randy Tan is the latest recipient of the Western Australian Racing Trainer’s Association’s encouragement award.

Tan clinched the monthly prize after guiding Flying Time to victory for trainer Lindsey Smith at Belmont on August 29.

It was Tan’s second metropolitan victory and first on a Saturday after he led on Brett Pope’s Ultimate Success.

John Claite, Riding Master for Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA), said Tan was riding with finesse and getting good reward for his hard work.
