Moody Unearths Possible 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes Contender

Peter Moody-trained filly Kiss A Rose announced herself as a possible 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes contender with an impressive two-length win on debut at Caulfield on Wednesday.

The daughter of Sebring jumped a $3.50 favourite in the Legatee Eric Baker Plate (1000m) and justified the price with a dominant performance.

Moody’s stable jockey Luke Nolen settled the youngster off the pace before peeling her to the outside where she showed sharp acceleration from the 300m mark to easily dispose of her rivals.

Speaking to reporters post-race, Nolen was full of praise for Kiss A Rose’s ability to improve every time she heads to the track.

”Every time she works at home and off the trial at Cranbourne she has improved, and she has definitely improved again today,” Nolen said.

“Once I gave her head she really chased the line down. She knows where the post is.”

Moody said the exciting prospect would not contest the 2013 Magic Millions Classic at the Gold Coast as the owner decided not to nominate.

Following yesterday’s victory Kiss A Rose firmed with bookmakers into $21 for the $2 million juvenile event.

Moody confirmed the $180,000 yearling will be set for the Blue Diamond, a race the leading Victorian trainer won in 2009 with Reward For Effort.

The Blue Diamond Stakes will take place at Caulfield on February 23 as part of the 2013 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Following the first round of declarations there were 506 two-year-olds still in contention for the $1 million race but that number will be reduced considerably on January 8 when the next round of declarations are due.
