Steps In Time has won the Group 2 Breeder’s Classic at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse last Saturday February 16, 2013.
The five-year-old won the race by a head in front of Red Tracer, who finished second, and Choice Words, who placed in third.
Trainer John O’Shea revealed that Steps In Time will head towards the Group 1 Coolmore Cup, in which she finished eighth in last year’s edition.
“She will go to the Coolmore third-up,” O’Shea said.
“She comes from the same family as Vision And Power and the family seems to get better as they get older.
“This year she will go to the Liverpool City Cup on her way to the Coolmore.”
While the Liverpool City Cup 2013 would grant Steps In Time with an automatic entry into the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap, O’Shea admitted she would not make the 1,600 metre distance.
“She can’t get 1600 metres,” O’Shea said.
“That is just beyond her.”
Steps In Time was ridden by jockey Jim Cassidy in the 2013 Breeder’s Classic last weekend.
“She is getting stronger as she matures,” Cassidy said.
The mare has now won seven of her 15 race starts and has earned more than $540,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.
