His name was inspired by the ending of John Singleton’s public feud with Gai Waterhouse and now Kiss And Make Up could take the pair all the way to the Golden Slipper.

The colt showed a tenaciousness typical of a Waterhouse-trained horse when he kicked back to score a debut win in the Plate at Canterbury on Wednesday.

Kiss And Make Up is part-owned by Singleton and Waterhouse, who a year ago rekindled their lifelong friendship after they fell out spectacularly two years earlier.

The businessman sacked Waterhouse as his trainer when More Joyous was beaten in the 2013 All Aged Stakes, accusing her of passing inside information to her bookmaker son Tom.

Neither was on track at Canterbury but Tulloch Lodge spokesman Adrian Bott said the stable was rapt to again be sharing the winner’s stall with Singleton.

“It’s a lovely story for the stable and it’s great to see John Singleton back in the stable,” Bott said.

Bott revealed Waterhouse had earmarked Kiss And Make Up as a Golden Slipper horse and the colt would get his chance to qualify for the race via one of the traditional lead-ups.

“Gai identified him early as one of our most promising colts so he’ll certainly be on a path towards the Slipper and maybe a next race like the Todman,” he said.

“It was important to see him come out and do that today. It was a big test and a quality field. It was a good tough win.”

While the Canterbury race held midweek status, it is expected to prove a strong form reference for the autumn carnival.

Runner-up Detective finished second to Golden Slipper favourite Capitalist in the Breeders’ Plate while third placegetter Star Of Monsoon was dropping back in grade from stakes class.

Bott was unable to confirm speculation Tulloch Lodge has been bought by overseas interests.

“It’s business as usual,” Bott said.

Waterhouse’s long-time employee Mark Newnham resigned this week after he said he was notified of a change in the structure of the business, although he understood Waterhouse would continue in her role as trainer.
