The name may be as simple as they come, even for a race horse.

But don’t left the name fool you.

John Brian is back with a bang, having not won since December 2009.

One of the island’s top three-year-olds, the Liz Deane-trained horse, showed all and sundry how to make a comeback, storming to victory in the Queen’s Plate Handicap, when the Barbados Turf Club’s second racing season continued yesterday at the Garrison Savannah.

And what an impressive field to do it against.

John Brian’s victory came against the likes of former Sandy Lane Gold Cup winners Daga and Mingun Temple.
