New Horizons will never reach the great heights of his international breeding but will forever hold one small piece of history

New Horizons will never reach the great heights of his international breeding but will forever hold one small piece of history.

The gelding has become the first offspring of super galloper and sire Frankel to win a Saturday metropolitan race in Brisbane.

New Horizons ($3) gave owner Paul Fudge and the John and Chris Meagher training partnership a winning double when he took the Casa Cibo Plate (1200m) at Doomben.

Fudge, who is the head of Waratah Thoroughbreds, combined earlier in the day with the Meaghers to win with Handsome Thief in the Open Handicap.

He has spent millions on bloodstock and has had plenty of success including New Horizons who is by Frankel out of broodmare Miss Keller who was originally sold to Fudge for more than 600,000 guineas.

Miss Keller, a stakes winner in Canada, was served by Frankel in Britain and foaled New Horizons in Japan. He was then transferred to Australia to race.

New Horizons has had a varied career, being trained at different times by Darren Weir, John Thompson and John O’Shea, but seems to have found his niche with the Meaghers in Queensland.

“We put blinkers on him and he seemed to get through the mud with no problems,” John Meagher said.

“It is great to get a double for Paul and his horses here are starting to come really good.”

Ipswich trainer Darren Evans had a winner on Saturday with his first and only runner when Madam Shazam ($20) claimed the Beach House Handicap (1350m).

“I was a jockey but had to give it away after some injuries. I just got my trainer’s licence and she is my only horse,” he said.

“I ride her track work and she has been going well enough to win.”

Tough filly Jami Lady might have one more run for the winter after breaking through for an overdue win in the Duporth Tavern Handicap (1200m).

She hadn’t finished worse than fourth in five starts against top class three-year-olds during the winter carnival.

Trainer Steve O’Dea reckons he has rarely had a tougher horse in his stable.

“She will go home tonight and lick the bin out. There is a three year old QTIS race next week and she might go around in it,” he said.

Jockey Matt McGillivray continued his great winter when Sydney gelding Iwendo ($3) led all of the way to win the Chu The Phat Handicap (2200m).

McGillivray, who rode his first Group One winner on Winning Ways in the Queensland Oaks this winter, returned to Doomben to ride Iwendo after winning the Rockhampton Newmarket on Wonder Boom.
