A float break-down ended Gotta Kiss’ chances in last year’s two-year-old Magic Millions race and Proven Thoroughbreds syndicate manager Jamie Walter is hoping for better pre-race luck this year.
Gotta Kiss was one of four horses who arrived late on course due to a float break down and was rushed to the gates without barely having had a stretch of the legs.
She subsequently finished 12th in that event, with the other three late arrivals also racing poorly and finishing behind her in the $2 million race.
Walter is looking for redemption this year with Gotta Kiss lining up in the three-year-old feature at the Gold Coast on January 16, the Magic Millions Guineas (1400m).
“It was a total disaster last year,” Walter said.
“We had well and truly run our race before they jumped and we’re hoping for a bit more luck this year.
“She’s a high-class filly who was Group One placed behind Rothfire. The 1400m will suit but I think she’s certainly capable of running a mile later on,” he said.
