“He will measure up for the four-year-old classics late in the year; he’s one of our better ones,” declared star reinsman Ryan Warwick after driving Dont Bother Me None to victory in the 2536m The Mondo Streaky Bacon Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Dont Bother Me None, trained by Greg and Skye Bond, was the $1.20 favourite who gave Warwick an armchair drive when he led and sprinted over the final 400m sections in 28.9sec. and 27.9sec. to win by more than a length from the $6.50 second fancy McArdles Gem, who trailed the pacemaker throughout.

The New Zealand-bred Dont Bother Me None’s 20 starts have all been in Western Australia, resulting in one win from four starts as a two-year-old and nine wins and a second from 11 starts as a three-year-old and five starts for Friday night’s win and two placings.

“That was better,” said Warwick. “When he’s good, he is really good, and when he’s not quite right he is a little bit off. Tonight, he was good. McArdles Gem is quite quick, and he dropped him off on the corner pretty easily. He felt good and he will be a chance in the four-year-old classics in November and December.”

Dont Bother Me None is by champion sire Bettors Delight and is the fourth foal out of the Christian Cullen mare Corbell, who managed just one minor win from 18 starts in New Zealand.

Dont Bother Me None is a full brother to New Zealand winners Micky Gee and Anytime, both of whom are now racing in the United States.
