I haven't found any cex argument that works for just the legend title, but you can get some modification of the title with the expression argument:

legend("topleft", legend=legtext,col=col,text.col=col,lwd=lwd, lty=lty,cex=1.1,ncol=3, title = expression(bold("Horizons")),title.col="black")

Does that help?

Otherwise, you can of course figure out which functions do the legend plotting, copy and modify those to get a title cex in place.
