Kiwi jockey James McDonald is having his last rides in New Zealand before heading across the ditch to pick up two rides during the Brisbane Winter Carnival.

He’ll be aboard Scarlet Lady and Dowager Queen which both bring winning form from NZ and could really shake things up at Doomben and Eagle Farm.

McDonald is pleased to have picked up the rides and has confidence they can deliver him a win.

“They’re both very smart fillies which are hitting Brisbane at the right time. It’s their fourth run in and Scarlet Lady especially feel s like she keeps on improving,” McDonald said.

Scarlet Lady is heading towards the Doomben Roses and the Queensland Oaks and comes in with huge wraps.

In fact connections of this horse have even gone as far as calling this their Caulfield Cup filly next year.

“She’s very very smart, her win last start was the best she’s put in all season,” he said.

“She’s on the way up and she keeps on improving and improving.”

That’s not to discount his other ride though with Dowager Queen well and truly in the mix for Brisbane Carnival success.

She’s heading towards the Sires Produce Stakes and the TJ Smith giving McDonald a ride in two of the top feature events.

She’s won her last two races in good style and loves a wet track, she’ll also come into her own as the distance picks up as well.

“She only carried 46kg in her last start win but beat some nice horses that were running in Group 1 races and placing,” McDonald said.

Another big advantage is her versatility, able to settle in just about any position after the jump.

“She can race anywhere, she won from well back at Ellerslie and last start settled third on a hot pace, ” he said.

“The mile will suit her better, she’s not a big filly and she’s lightly framed, runs hard over the line.”

It will continue a growing partnership between McDonald and trainer Graeme Rogerson.

“Rogie’s been very good to me over this season,” he said.

They create a dangerous duo and one that will no doubt feature at some stage during the Brisbane Winter Carnival.
