In Her Time Outfoxes Rivals

By Brad Gray

A beautiful front-running ride from Josh Parr saw In Her Time lead from start to finish in the Group Two Millie Fox Stakes at Rosehill, making it four straight wins for the mare.

“That was the plan today being the fittest horse in the race. I told Josh that you can just let her slip on the turn and maybe they’ll get off the bit earlier than they want to,” said Newcastle-based trainer Ben Smith.

“She is very good and keeps improving.”

In Her Time never looked like losing

A crack at the Group One Coolmore Stud Classic (1500m) seems the logical progression for the daughter of Time Thief but Smith has his reservations about the extra journey.

“We’ll discuss that in the coming days. I think she is a better sprinter but the way she raced today might cause us to reassess. We’ll get her home and go from there.”

“She’s not really bred to run it. It’s a real running family.”

Parr, whose friendship with Smith goes back to the Crown Lodge days when he was an apprentice rider and Smith among the staff, agreed that 1500m might be a stretch.

“I was confident. The only doubt in my mind was the testing conditions,” said Parr.

“The rain we’ve just had has soaked in and her previous form on soft tracks isn’t so great. When I asked her to extend and she lengthened out really well and I thought it’s going to take some sort of mare to run her down.

“The last 100m she changed strides and wanted to get in a touch as she had probably had enough but she had already produced the killer blow when she let down.”
