No Ties con­nects with Kah

Sunday Mail - - SPORT - WAR­REN PARTLAND GAWLER

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.”
