Let’s See has plenty of support riding on her

\"\"By DAVID BRASCH

AARON Ison chuckles to himself every time Let\’s See wins a race, or makes yet another Group final.

The daughter of My Bro Fabio-Asteroid Miss is owned by a multitude of owners, some of who include country NSW jockeys and a horse trainer.

But it is the number of jockeys who knocked back a chance to be part of the success that makes Aaron chuckle.

Let\’s See was initially owned and trained by Kevin Brennan who had already won with her at Wauchope and The Gardens before Aaron spotted her as a potential staying type and negotiated with Kevin to buy her.

He paid $16,000 for the bitch after she had finished fourth at Taree in August last year.

Aaron then went about syndicating the bitch among mates and in partnership with Australian Bloodstock.

\”Australian Bloodstock took 50 percent of her and I syndicated the rest of her among mates of mine,\” said Aaron.

Those who took up the offer included Mid North Coast jockeys Kirk Matheson, Brook Stower and trainer Daniel Want.

\”I also had to give a five percent share to a Wingham footy club punters club after losing a bet on a footy game against Wauchope,\” said Aaron.

Aaron, 40, has been Wauchope Club president for the past year and that followed his vice-president position before that. He is a life member of the club.

\”There are so many people who own shares in Let\’s See it is difficult to keep track of them all,\” said Aaron.

\”The five percent from the punters club has been shared between five or six.\”

Let\’s See was bought in August last year and immediately joined the kennel of Mark Davidson who Aaron praises as having done a remarkable job with the bitch.

Wins at Wentworth Park, The Gardens, Gosford and Albion Park and a fourth in the Group 3 Sydney Cup behind Here\’s Tears followed.

\”Mark has done an awesome job and he deserves every bit of praise,\” said Aaron.

\”Look at what he does to get a winner.\”

In the week Let\’s See went to Brisbane for the heats of the Garrards Gold Cup, Mark was back the next day to race at the Gardens.

On the Saturday he raced five dogs at Taree\’s morning race meeting, and then was back at The Gardens that night with runners.

By Monday he was at Bathurst for the heats of the Cup, Wednesday at Taree again, Thursday back at Albion Park for the Gold Cup final, and on Friday had returned to Bathurst for the Cup final.

All in search of a winner … or three!

Aaron has been in greyhound racing all his life.

His grandparents Maureen and Barry West have just retired after a lifetime of racing dogs in the Wauchope area.

\”For the first 25 years of my life I was totally involved with dogs,\” said Aaron. \”Then I took a break and have only recently got back into the game.

\”My good mate Trent Hodges and I picked out Let\’s See as a potential stayer together and decided to buy her.

\”The fact we have brought so many newcomers into the industry with this syndication is a great thing.

\”The bitch probably has at least another year of racing and it is difficult to pre-empt her future.

\”The people in her just love watching her race and many of them make sure they are there when she does.\”

Those handful of jockeys around the Mid North Coast of NSW who knocked back the chance to be part of the syndicate now enjoying Group racing will not see it that way … unlucky them!
