“Kiss Me Linda retires on a high note”
Grand campaigner Kiss Me Linda (pictured) won her final race tonight for leading trainer Chris Halse. The daughter of Kinloch Brae hadn’t won for twelve starts but had drawn favourably in box one. Race favourite More Deductions ($1.65 fixed odds) blasted out of box three but Kiss Me Linda used her inside advantage to punch up and be level at the first turn. The duo recorded an electric first section of 5.42 before matching motors for most of the race. Just prior to straightening Kiss Me Linda held a narrow lead before saluting by half a length in a slick 30.00. More Deductions was the runner up two lengths ahead of the fast finishing West On Olvee. Kiss Me Linda is raced by the Ryan Hill managed From The Jockey’s Mouth Syndicate and ends her career with 19 wins, 34 minor placings and over $150,000 in earnings. She also competed in two Perth Cups and promises plenty in regards to producing quality pups in the breeding barn.
