Eagle Farm Racecourse was the scene of celebration yesterday as two young trainers scored their first city winners.

Adam O’Neill had his first city win when Untoward, a horse that was once trained by both the Gai Waterhouse and Mick Price stables, won the Mimiki Foundation Maiden Handicap by an impressive length and a quarter margin.

O’Neill, 30, has been training for almost eight years and has spent time in both Queensland and Victoria.

“I started off training here (in Queensland) and had six wins in four months before I went to Victoria,” O’Neill said.

“I was born in Victoria and always wanted to train there.”

O’Neill has tasted success at the provincial tracks, but has only ever placed in the city until now.

“I moved back home in 2006 but I had to take some time off because of a leg injury I had and worked as a wardsman at the Royal Brisbane hospital,” he said.

“I was a bit disappointed to come home but the weather is warmer here.

“I was having a good run in Victoria and had just won a few races.”

O’Neill scored the three-year-old Untoward, who has only had five starts, from Victorian trainer Mick Price.

“I got this horse off Mick Price who told me he only wanted time and distance,” O’Neill said.

“This was only a maiden but I think he’s got a future here up to 2000 metres.”

Zelda Landry also found herself in the winner’s circle at a city track for the first time after her two-year-old filly Crystal Doll won the Brothers Junior Rugby Maiden Handicap by a short neck.

Landry, a former bush jockey, only gained her trainer’s licence in January.

“I used to ride quite a lot in the bush but I never rode many winners,” Landry said.

“I had a horse I brought to Brisbane earlier in the year but he only ran second and then broke down.”
