The Legend Returns To Wyong On Cup Day

Veteran galloper Destiny’s Kiss will attempt to claim his second Listed Carlton Draught Wyong Gold Cup next Friday.

It will be the 100th race start for the 11-year-old, who resumed from a let-up in the Rowley Mile at Hawkesbury on August 22.

It will also be the veteran’s fourth start in the Wyong Gold Cup, having first contested the race in 2014, then he returned three years later to win the race in 2017 and finish 6th with top weight last year.

Trainer Joe Pride believes Destiny’s Kiss primed for a strong showing in the Cup again this year.

“He had his 50th start when he won the Gosford Cup in 2016,” Pride said. “It was his 12th win and at the time I thought you’ve done your job.

“Here he is now having his 100th run in the Wyong Cup. He is just a legend. He is going really good and I’m sure he will run well.”

Pride said Josh Parr had been booked to ride Destiny’s Kiss.

The Nick Moratis-owned gelding has a host of Listed races to his name and has amassed more than $1.5m in prizemoney from 19 wins and 22 places.

Pride said he will also be bringing Mandylion and Foxy Housewife for the $140,000 Listed Mona Lisa Stakes.

“They are two really nice mares and it looks like a good race for them.”

Nominations for the Wyong Cup meeting close at 11am on Monday.
