Kavanagh made the move from Adelaide to Sydney for the 2013/2014 racing season and was immediately rewarded as Words Of Weapons was too good in her first race as a four-year-old.

The daughter of Dubawi was slightly disappointing in the Listed Lightning Stakes (1050m) last month, her last run in Adelaide, but bounced back to her best to improve her racing record to three wins from four starts.

“She was our main gun to bring up here early,” Kavanagh told AAP after the race.

“I was confident until last Tuesday when she didn’t handle the track and I was a bit toey after that but then she worked well on Saturday.

“It’s a great way to start and a massive relief.”

Kavanagh had plenty of success in the eighteen months he spent as a trainer in South Australia, winning the Listed Balaklava Cup (1600m), Matrice Stakes (1300m) and Tokyo City Cup (1800m) with Bagman, but said he was looking forward to the extra prizemoney on offer in New South Wales.

“The prize money and the owners’ bonus schemes are good incentives,” Kavanagh said.

“Racing is exciting in NSW.”

Kavanagh is the son of leading Victorian trainer Mark Kavanagh and Sam said earlier in the week that his father’s large presence in Melbourne was one of the reasons behind his move to Sydney.

“My father is already in Melbourne and well-regarded there, so I wanted to make my own name, away from him,” the rising trainer told News Limited.

Kavanagh does not have a runner at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday and his only entrant at Gosford today has been scratched.

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    working with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but
    I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
