The 3 year old filly by Medaglia D'Oro out of the Danehill Dancer mare, Bal Du Siecle has been super consistent this preparation. She's only been out of the placing's once in her seven starts and accumulated over $140k in prize money this preparation alone.

She has been all heart in every run not leaving anything on the track, so it was only fitting to see her break through and win the last race of the season.

Coming off a very gallant second last week at Randwick Joe picked out the 1200m for F&M at Rosehill as a perfect assignment for her. This would be her last chance for the BOBS Bonus and being a tough filly at home he knew she would handle the back up well. As always she was all heart and her determination was there for all to see. She battled head on head with stable mate Brook Magic to fight out the finish before diving for the winning post.

Oria will now head for a well earned spell and we can't wait for her return.

A huge congratulations to both Trevor and Dianne from Fraser Thoroughbreds who are not only her owners but also her breeders. It was a big reward for both Trevor and Dianne to get the win in Sydney and we are all looking forward to plenty more.

Destiny's Kiss gets his recognition

Destiny's Kiss needs no introduction. Not only is he an asset to Pride Racing but he's also an asset to Racing NSW. He has been an ultra consistent horse season after season and is our very own Cups King. He didn't have a flash price tag and he's not very big but his courage is something to admire. He likes to take a back seat in his races before giving his all down the straight, which always makes for a very exciting finish.

Yesterday the ATC recognised our stable warrior and awarded him a special achievement award for winning a metro race at open level in five different racing seasons. Pride Racing couldn't be prouder of our war horse with Joe commenting " He's the most genuine racehorse I've trained".

Congratulations to his owner Nick Moraitis, his little horse that passed in for $7,000 who has now won over $1.4M in prize money has done him proud.
