Apprentice Gets First Taste Of Success

Cambridge apprentice Lee Magorrian rode his first winner today at just his 8th raceday ride aboard the Ross McCarroll prepared Royal Sceptre at Ruakaka.

The Irish-born 18-year-old is just the fourth apprentice indentured to trainer Roger James, who holds him in high regard.

"Lee is a very conscientious lad and is totally focussed on his career," said James. "His horsemanship skills are very good as well, and as he gains in experience I can see him doing very well."
