​ Anything Damien and Steph can do, I can do Better.

Recent metro winners to both Stephanie and Damien Thornton has given brother Boris plenty of inspiration to raise the bar and taste metro success.

Teaming up with leading Tasmanian trainer Scott Brunton, Boris was able to pilot the in form Life On The Wire to win going away at Sandown last Wednesday.

Life On The Wire was aiming for a hat-trick of wins and with the neat claim for Boris the 4yo mare was able to do so with a positive ride from Boris.

"She loves to run and can handle sitting up on the pace and toughing it out, she came to Melbourne in form and with a few wins at Launy she looked well placed by Scott"

Life On The Wire has always shown great ability even being stakes placed in the Hobart Guineas as a 3yo.

For Boris it was a fantastic result as he felt like he had been riding well and was pleased to get a metro winner for Scott given the history around the Thornton/Brunton relationship over the past few years.

"Scott has always been good to not only myself but also Damien and Steph, it has been a great experience to build on my craft in Tassie''.
