Trainer Joe Pride is pleased with the form of evergreen gelding Destiny’s Kiss and as a result he is likely to have his 98th start when he runs in either the Kensei Handicap (2000m) and the Stayers Cup (3200m) at Rosehill next Saturday.
The 10-year-old gelding stormed back into form to win the Listed Winter Cup (Listed, 2400m) on his last start, and Pride is keen to keep him in training while he is in such good form.
“I’m sort of lost for words when trying to explain him,” said Pride. “He’s one of a kind and he’s doing things I haven’t seen any other horse do. I just want to see how it all looks when they weight the horses and also who nominates.
“I’m not ruling out running him again because he’s pulled up so well and I don’t want to stick him in the paddock because he doesn’t like it.”
