Words Are Weapons To Be Kavanagh’s Final Adelaide Starter

Rising training Sam Kavanagh is expected to have his final starter in Adelaide this weekend when Words Are Weapons contests the Listed Lightning Stakes (1050m) at Morphettville.

Kavanagh announced earlier this month that he would be moving his entire operation to Sydney on August 1 but said yesterday that he would temporarily relocate the majority of his horses to Melbourne next week after a disagreement with South Australian Jockey Club officials, which saw Words Are Weapons miss a key workout on grass before her black type racing debut.

“We were told that there were no gallops on the grass this week,” Kavanagh told News Limited.

“So we gave Words Are Weapons a jump-out first thing this morning on the pro-ride and then I’m told all horses nominated for the Dermody (now known as the Lightning) were entitled to a jump-out on the grass.

“That’s not much good to me afterwards.”

The issue was further compounded when Kavanagh was refused the opportunity to give exciting juvenile Mon Gateau a gallop on the grass.

“I was told that because he hasn’t won a Group or Listed race that he wasn’t entitled to a hit-out on the grass,” the young trainer said.

“That’s doesn’t make a lot of sense, especially when you’re getting horses like him ready for good races interstate.”

Kavanagh, the son of Melbourne Cup and Cox Plate winning trainer Mark Kavanagh, has thrived since becoming a trainer in his own right in 2011 with his stable recording eighteen wins from just ninety starters in the 2012/2013 racing season.

His star performer has been Bagman, now under the care of John O’Shea in Sydney, who took out the Listed Matrice Stakes (1300m), Listed Balaklava Cup (1600m) and Tokyo City Cup (1800m) before finishing second in the Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) during the 2012 Spring Racing Carnival.
