Iamzeus thunders to outstanding debut win

Flemington trainer Danny O’Brien has unearthed another potential star in three-year-old colt Iamzeus following his outstanding win at the Geelong ThoroughTrack.

The heavily backed debutant raced wide near the rear of the field for most of the trip, but unleashed a powerful finish to win eased down by jockey James Winks.

“He’s shown us plenty. We think he’s a very nice colt and I’m glad he backed that up today,” said O’Brien.

“He’ll end up in better class races before the end of the spring. He’ll possibly head to town in the next couple of weeks.”

Interestingly Iamzeus is nominated for The Age Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on 11 October and was heavily backed to win the Guineas in the hours prior to his first racetrack appearance.

Winks was equally impressed.

“He’s a very, very nice horse. I knew he was good and he might be frightening when he gets it all together,” Winks said.
