Destiny Rising Eyes Sunshine Coast Guineas 2013 Start

A good mid-week win at Canterbury has connections of developing three-year-old Destiny Rising discussing a trip to Queensland for the winter carnival features including the 2013 Sunshine Coast Guineas at the end of next month.

The God’s Own gelding broke their maiden status at career start number six on Wednesday when taking out the $35,000 Australian Turf Club Plate (1100m) by an impressive 4.3 lengths over the Gai Waterhouse-trained Belladini which was their trainer Brian Gentle’s first Sydney winner.

It was Destiny Rising’s first-up run since November and showed they had come through their spell, and their gelding operation during that time, well and ready for a big season which could include the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Gentle, a former Sydney stable foreman for John O’Shea, was thrilled with the win and believed the youngster’s tough runs last spring against the likes of Group 1 performers Proisir and Norzita helped bring him on this time in.

“He’s a better horse for it,” Gentle said.

Their grand final goal should they travel to the sunshine state will be the $100,000 Listed Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m) on June 29 which is the Sunshine Coast’s biggest race day of the season.

“We were looking at a $100,000 maiden for him in Queensland in two weeks but we’ll keep him here now for one more run and then look at the Sunshine Coast Guineas,” Gentle confirmed.

“I’ve always had an opinion of this horse.”
