Brilliant Trial Winner for Northern Meteor
Sydney – Record breaking sprinter Northern Meteor posted his first barrier trial winner at Randwick on Monday morning with Gai Waterhouse producing a very smart prospect in Mr Jackman.
Mr Jackman looked a ready-made racehorse, jumping brilliantly and railing through to lead before fighting off a challenge from Ideal Guide to win by half a length with six lengths back to the third horse.
They clocked 43.8 for the trip with the winner finding the line in style to clock the quickest time of the three juvenile heats.
Purchased by Star Thoroughbreds for $80,000 from the Carramar Park draft at Magic Millions, Mr Jackman is certainly a well named youngster given his dam is stakes-placed Miss Broadway, who is by General Nediym.
