LICENCE HOLDER: Jack Lynch trained All For D B for his first win.

Fertiliser salesman Aaron Hutton trained his first winner when All For D B won the amateur drivers' race at Rangiora yesterday.

Hutton engaged Ray Reekie to rein the ex-Southland pacer because he has not completed all requirements to be a raceday amateur driver.

Requirements are: to drive at workouts for two years, drive in 30 workouts and have five workout wins.

''I'm still work in progress,'' Hutton quipped.

''October-November I should have it [raceday licence].''

All For D B's other two wins were for Southland trainers John Cox and Tracie McGrannachan (last year) and Jack Lynch (2010).

Hutton leased All For D B in September and yesterday was the 8-year-old's 10th start for Hutton, who lives at Greenpark and trains All For D B at Motukarara.

''He looked like he was going good races in Southland without any luck,'' Hutton said yesterday.

''I thought we'd target amateur races with him.''

All For D B has been treated for stomach ulcers and hock soreness since joining the Canterbury stable.
