Decision Time Impressive In 2011 Fireball Handicap Win

Decision Time

Decision Time is the winner of the 2011 Fireball Handicap

The 2011 Fireball Quality Handicap has been won in outstanding style by Decision Time.

As picked by races.com.au earlier in the week Decision Time had the class and experience to overcome a huge weight disadvantage and storm home the strongest.

It was the favourite Moshe which got the best jump and went to the lead early.

Decision Time sat behind with Celts in third place and Parrawi looking the best of the other runners.

Around the turn Decision Time moved two wide and pulled up alongside Moshe with Celts finding a prime run along the rails the entire trip.

That created a drag race down the main straight with Parrawi a few back but running on well.

Decision Time never looked in doubt with 400m to go, just too much class and experience for his rivals.

Trainer Clarry Conners said this was just a feeling out race first up and after this win they’ll need to sit down and work out a path of where to go from here.

Celts was impressive in running home second and after just two races looks like a quality horse.

Parrawi managed to catch the fading Moshe on the line making up quite good ground late.

For Moshe it’s a setback for sure but considering it was only his third race it’s no cause for panic just yet.
