No Ties connects with Kah
SOUTH Australia’s premier jockey, Jamie Kah, has predicted a promising future for No Ties after his impressive victory at Gawler yesterday.
Having just his fourth start, the three-year old gelding justified his extremely short quote in betting when he cruised to a three-length win over Metro Tramp and Jaamint in the Goldin Farms-Akeed Mofeed Handicap (1100m) .
The manner of the win prompted plenty of praise from Kah, who believes No Ties can make his mark interstate.
“This was a nice test for him,” Kah said. “He found the front very easily and waited a little bit. When the class steps up, he will step up.
“He is a very genuine horse and, even across the border, he will give them a shake. The class step up? He will just keep improving and improving.”
Trained by Mick Huxtable at Murray Bridge, No Ties won at his home track on debut before back-to-back seconds.
No Ties trailed Metro Tramp to the turn before Kah asked for an effort to put the result in no doubt.
Huxtable said he would let the dust settle before looking for a suitable race in Melbourne. APPRENTICE Raquel Clark continued to enhance her reputation when she produced quality rides to win the opening two races on Table of Wisdom and Wasabi Bob.
Table Of Wisdom claimed a hat-trick of wins, while Wasabi Bob continued his ultra-consistent form.
“I’ve been trying to ride Wasabi Bob pretty lately and I don’t think you can ride him that way,” Clark said. “You have got to put the field under pressure early.
“When he got in front at the top of the straight, he thought he had won already. With a bit of encouragement, he kept going.”
