Tim Fitzsimmons, the former assistant trainer to Cliff Brown who saddled more than 500 winners before calling it quits, finally saddled the first winner of his own when MEGA GOLD saluted the judges in a Restricted Maiden race over 1200m on the polytrack at Kranji here today.

Fitzsimmons was granted his trainerís licence last April but pnly moved into his stables four months later with only a handful of horses passede down from other trainers.

The new season brought hope for the Australian after a couple of placings earlier but it was one of the horses who landed last year for him which achieved the breakthrough for him.

MEGA GOLD landed unraced last August and finished a creditable fourth in his debut last month. With a switch of trainer to Michael Rodd who was Brownís No. 1 rider, the son of Giantís Steps came from off the pace early to win drawing away by 1 1/2 lengths.

"Itís fantastic, itís a huge relief," said an emotional Fitzsimmons. "Itís fitting and fantastic that itís Michael who rode my first winner, but how can I not mention about Marc Lerner who helps me a lot with the horses and would have ridden my two horses tonight, if he was not suspended."

"I was not overly frustrated I havenít had my first winner. It helps that Iíve been here for so long, I was not panicking, if anything, it felt like other people wanted that first winner more than me!"

MEGA GOLD was his 22nd runner.
