Apprentice Jordan Turner is the latest recipient of the West Australian Trainer’s Association Encouragement Award.
Last month’s Ascot meeting will forever be etched into the memory of the talented teenager after a milestone double.
Turner landed his first city winner on dynamic mare She’s A Virtue who dashed clear to bring up her fourth consecutive victory.
The daughter of He’s A Decoy shapes as another promising type for trainer Vaughn Sigley who is enjoying a golden run.
The programme only got better for Turner when he backed up and steered home injury-plagued galloper, Travinator.
Under Turner’s guidance the Dan Pearce-trained galloper defeated Du Printemps by a short-head with Flytego close up in third.
Turner, who has recently completed high school, is the son of experienced jockey Troy and remains indentured to veteran trainer Colin Webster.
