Ensby prepares for Sydney raid

Young trainer Ethan Ensby will saddle up Partnership (Tavistock) in the Iron Jack Handicap
(2400m) tomorrow, fresh from notching the stable’s first city winner at Eagle Farm in Brisbane
a fortnight ago. The race now shapes as a decent chance for Ensby, who launched his training
career at age 18 from his home town of Casino, to break through for a maiden NSW metropolitan
victory.

“It would be nice to get the hoodoo off my back,” he said. Partnership arrived at Ensby’s
Ballina stables in late 2018 from Oaks-winning trainer John Sargent, who has been an influential
figure and friend to Ensby. “He sends me up a lot of good horses, Partnership being one of them,”
Ensby said. “I’ve just bought my 10th horse from Sarge. It arrived this morning and we’ve won with
eight of them.He told me with Partnership ‘you’ll get a really nice horse in the spring’, and he’s dead
on the money.”
