Kurt Goldman might have to reintroduce himself to one of Australia's premier jockeys, but that won't faze him after securing globe-trotting rider Craig Williams for a key booking at Moonee Valley tonight.
Having paired with Williams when Arms Length ran second in the fillies and mares race on Magic Millions day almost two years ago, Goldman has again scored a coup in securing Williams's services.
This time the lightweight hoop will be legged aboard the Darley cast-off Shiso when the short-course specialist resumes in a rich 55 Second Challenge (over 955 metres) tonight.
It will be only the second time the Kembla Grange-based Goldman, who only prepares a small team at the provincial circuit, has travelled a horse interstate.
"He [Williams] ran second in the Magic Millions for me, but I don't think he'll remember," Goldman joked.
And he'll also be laughing all the way to the bank if Shiso happens to negate a wide draw and win at her Victorian debut, with a berth in another 955-metre dash in the pipeline on Manikato Stakes night.
"It's obviously a higher benchmark race so she'll have to win to warrant coming back down," Goldman said.
