JARROD McLEAN took time out from looking after Lucky Hussler and Ozi Choice at the Gold Coast races   to acknowledge the winning performance of Burning Front and jockey Brad Rawiller at Flemington on Saturday.

McLean, who  is Darren Weir’s Warrnambool satellite foreman said Burning Front and Rawiller are a formality combination.

“From 23 races there’ve won 12 times and been in the placings on seven occasions,” he said. “It’s an incredible record. It was a great ride by Brad. He just understands Burning Front so well.

“Burning Front has now won 19 of his 57 starts. He does nearly all his work down at the beach.”

Burning Front for the last two years  has won the $120,000 VOBIS Gold Star race at Moonee Valley on Australia Day, he will attempt to win the race for a third consecutive time on January 26.

“Weiry has earmarked the VOBIS race again,” he said. “It’s an ideal race for him. We’ll just keep him ticking over down at the beach in the lead up to the  VOBIS race.”

The victory took Burning Front’s stake earnings to nearly $1.4 million.
