Sea Lord takes away trainer's pain

A day that began with a horse stomping on his foot ended on a brighter note for trainer Steve Brown at Moonee Valley when Sea Lord won the Major Putts Handicap (1200m).

But Brown still had to endure an anxious few minutes standing on one leg with blood seeping through a shoe waiting for Sea Lord's number to go into the frame.

A member of a three-horse package of tried horses that includes Saturday's Moonee Valley runner Winter King, Sea Lord ($4.40) survived by a nose from Big Buddie ($13) with the same margin to General Truce ($13).

"I've only got a few horses, and he's the best of them," Brown said.

"It's a bit uncomfortable here tonight, I had to take my good shoes off and put on some trainers, but it's worth it."

Winter King runs for Brown in Saturday's City Jeep Handicap (1000m).

And the trainer is tipping he'll provide more pain relief.
