Steps In Time Transferred To Pride’s Stables For Autumn Campaign

Steps In Time has begun a new partnership with trainer Joe Pride after spending her career with John O’Shea.

O’Shea has been named as the new trainer for Darley Australia, leading Steps In Time to be transferred to Pride’s stables.

The six-year-old has two Group 2 wins to her name and will be looking to start her autumn carnival with a bang in 2014.

Steps In Time failed to win a race during the spring racing carnival, which is something that Pride puts down to the season.

“It’s not her time of year. She really doesn’t fire into spring,” Pride said.

“I think I’ve taken her over at the right time of year.”

Pride admitted that Steps In Time was a one dimensional galloper, however, he hopes that she can find her peak form going into the autumn.

“She’s probably the female equivalent of Rain Affair,” said Pride.

“I can’t see us changing that racing pattern but I’m sort of feeling my way through.

“Hopefully I can add something to her.”

The Group 1 Coolmore Classic will once again be Steps In Time’s aim this preparation.

“You’ve got to consider that 1500 (metres) is probably the absolute top of the distance range,” said the trainer.

“If it was 1,400 metres it would probably be a lot more inviting to be aiming at.

“It definitely is on the radar. But that’s the way we would be headed I’d say.”

This is likely to be Steps In Time’s final racing campaign before beginning her career as a broodmare.

“The guy’s a pretty keen to get her off to stud for the next season,” revealed Pride.

“We’ll probably just be having one campaign with her and that may culminate in Brisbane.

“She’s been a fantastic mare for the last three or four seasons.

“I’ve been more than happy with the way she’s settled in.”

Steps In Time has won eight of her 23 race starts and has earned more than $668,000 in prize money during her career.
