He started his career in journalism as a cadet with the Daily Telegraph newspaper in 2006 with his sole focus on working with the form guide section.
Coming from a family involved in harness racing, he was given the opportunity of writing a weekly harness column and also began writing thoroughbred stories for the Sportsman.
After two years of cutting his teeth with the production of form guides, he was appointed number two racing writer at the
Daily Telegraph and soon took over the At The Track column in the Sunday Telegraph, a position which has allowed him to
travel the country reporting on all the major carnivals.
Brent’s work with the newspaper has recently expanded to covering sports betting and the occasional Rugby League stories.
He began work with TVN in September 2010 as a presenter at the Canterbury Friday night meetings and is now a host on Race Day Live.
Brent is a keen form student and punter who focus’ his attention on the Sydney metropolitan and NSW provincial meetings.
