The first horse I ever bred was the grey gelding Messenger by my Anglo stallion Wongaburra Matador from my Standardbred mare Social Science who was by Local Ayr.

Messenger won the Junior Division of the Shahzada 400 km ride and placed 3rd in the Junior Division at the Tom Quilty Gold Cup, with his then owner Simone Campbell.

He also placed and got Best Conditioned in Middleweight rides.
