Prior to that she posted a fifth placing in the Listed Toy Show Quality behind winning mare Dystopia.

Wild And Proud finished second to Steps In Time in the 2012  Bill Ritchie Handicap, while Said Com passed the post in third position.

John O’Shea was the winning trainer of Steps In Time.

“I’ve been really happy with the way she’s going it just hasn’t reflected on race day,” O”Shea said.

“She’s got a tremendous record third-up.

“She’s a bigger stronger mare now so probably takes a run or two.”

Steps In Time is likely to make her final spring appearance in the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes on Caulfield Racecourse on October 20, 2012.

“We’d probably just be inclined to take her to Caulfield and run her on Caulfield Cup Day and that will do her,” O’Shea revealed.

Jockey Jim Cassidy made it a Royal Randwick double with his win aboard Steps In Time in the 2012 Bill Ritchie Handicap.

“I didn’t have to dig her early today,” Cassidy said.

“She came back underneath me nice today but I did give her a nice squeeze at the 600 metres.”

Steps In Time has won six of her 12 race starts and has earned more than $425,000 in prize money during her career.
