Victorian Metropolitan Trainer’s Premiership – Jeff Britton

The revered Britton family training dynasty received another major accolade when Jeff Britton was announced as the winner of the Metropolitan Trainer’s Premiership at the 2022 Victorian Greyhound Awards.

Britton, who’s based at Anakie, prepared 73 city winners from 402 starters during the 2021/22 racing year, topping the list of eligible trainers.

The leader board had a family flavour, with Britton, son of GRV Hall of Fame member Allan and brother of champion trainers Robert Britton and Linda Britton, claiming the title ahead of nephew Tim Britton.

Tim, Robert’s son, and an emerging force in the Victorian training ranks, finished the year with 53 wins from 293 runners.

Among Jeff Britton’s headline city performers were Group 1-winning stayer Mepunga Ruby, her regular feature race adversary Hank The Hustler, multiple Group 1 placegetter Mepunga Warrior, and star sprinters Do It and Mr. Fix It.
