Most Williams-trained Wednesday winners are not newsworthy, but most Williams-trained Wednesday winners are not I’m Eugene, which became the first Richard Williams-prepared galloper to win a Western Australian metropolitan race.

Group One-winning training partnership Grant and Alana Williams have little to fear from Richard Williams, who had saddled 36 unsuccessful runners in Western Australian city contests across 17 years prior to I’m Eugene’s victory in Wednesday’s Amelia Park Lodge Handicap under Jade McNaught.

I’m Eugene has won two of his eight starts, which means he is the Richard Williams-trained thoroughbred with the most victories on the board. Before I’m Eugene’s triumphs in a Pinjarra maiden and an Ascot handicap, only 2004 Narrogin maiden winner Valicia had won for the Richard Williams yard.
