Gelding On Mission To Make A Name For Himself At Kembla Grange (Saturday)

Gwenda Markwell admits A Horse Withnoname is a bit of a pet project for her and if he wasn’t he would have been moved on by now.

The 14-time premiership-winning Kembla Grange trainer strangely has only two runners at Saturday’s meeting on her home track and forced a smile when asked about the Bradbury’s Luck six-year-old.

“I think one win in 25 starts tells you a lot about him, but he has talent and personality,” Markwell said.

“He has a couple of bars put on him but he has been a horse I have done a lot of work with and if he can win again it would be a real thrill.”

A Horse Withnoname takes on the Chris Waller-trained Cellarman in the opener at Kembla on Saturday, the ITC Corporate Members Race Day Handicap (1500m)

He comes off a third at Kembla two weeks ago where he copped another warning for his racing manners.

“It was a good run but he wanted to throw it away,” Markwell said.

“I have done a lot of work with him to try and get him right but he is one of those horses that has a mind of his own. You fix one thing and there is another.

“We own him and if we didn’t you would have told the owners a long time ago it was time to move him on but he is a challenge and I ride him in work, so I want to try and get him to win again.”

Markwell’s other runner for the afternoon is Coca Chu in the RTS Thoroughbreds Maiden Handicap (1600m).

"He is starting to get over a trip, which might suit him," Markwell said.

Markwell leads the Kembla-based trainers premiership with five wins for the season but her reign as the leading trainer at the South Coast track is under threat with Waller, Team Snowden and John O’Shea all in front of her at the halfway point.
