Emerging star three-year-old Don’t Bother Me None notched his fifth win in a row and his ninth victory from 13 starts when he strolled to an easy triumph over Stamford in the 2536m Team Bond Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

The Greg and Skye Bond-trained Bettors Delight colt was bred in New Zealand but has done all his racing in Western Australia.

Favourite at $1.80, he was driven with great confidence by star reinsman Ryan Warwick, who said: “He is a horse going places, but he needs more experience. He has still got a lot to learn, but I think he will develop into a Golden Nugget prospect next year.”

Stamford, the $3.80 second fancy from barrier four, began speedily but was unable to cross $34 chance Unconditional, who began fast from the favourable No. 2 barrier. Stamford eventually was able to take the lead after 950m.

Warwick had Don’t Bother Me None perfectly positioned in the one-out, one-back position for the first 1100m before he sent the colt forward, three wide, to race in the breeze. Don’t Bother Me None and Stamford had a spirited tussle in the final circuit before the favourite got to the front about 280m from home and won by one and a half lengths.

Otis ($5.50) raced at the rear in the field of seven before running home strongly to be third.

Don’t Bother Me None is the fourth foal out of the Christian Cullen mare Corbell and he is a full-brother to American winners Micky Gee and Anytime.

Don’t Bother Me None has raced 13 times for nine wins and two seconds for $48,370 in prizemoney.
