BRC Sires’ Winner Time For War JJ Atkins 2014 Chance

Connections of improving juvenile Time For War are now seriously considering a Stradbroke Handicap Day start in the 2014 JJ Atkins after their upset win in today’s $250,000 Group 2 Mitavite BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m).

The traditional lead-up to the $500,000 Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) at Eagle Farm on June 7, the BRC Sire’s Produce has produced seven of the past 10 JJ Atkins winners.

Only two of those, Pressday (2010) and Sizzling (2012) were able to achieve the double however, a feat that Time For War could get the chance to attempt.

Prepared in Sydney by Gerald Ryan, the Snitzel colt took their record to three wins from five starts today in the BRC Sires’ Produce.

After winning on debut last spring they enjoyed a first up victory in the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) in the mud at Rosehill before their fourth in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at the same track a fortnight later.

While that was a promising effort things went amiss for Time For War last start when they finished second last behind Brazen Beau in the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) in their Queensland debut.

The Chris Waller-trained Brazen Beau was hot favourite then in today’s BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes markets.

They missed the jump however and were second last straight away.

While they and jockey Nash Rawiller worked hard to make up the ground and put in a flying finish, they couldn’t catch the all-the-way winner.

Tye Angland rode Time For War to perfection from the inside alley, the jockey’s first ride back home in Brisbane in four years.

“It’s been a long time between drinks but this is very refreshing,” Angland said post-win.

The winning duo had the perfect barrier, the right racing style and the speed so on the line were able to hold off Brazen Beau to win by a tidy margin as a $21 roughie.

“He’s got a little bit of a reputation as being a naught bugger,” Angland said.

“But he was really well behaved today.”

Also up on the pace early was the Tony Gollan-trained local Looks Like The Cat ($7) who came off a second to Brazen Beau in the Champagne Classic.

While they couldn’t get to the line first, they did put in another good run to finish third and could also back-up in the JJ Atkins next month.

It was the second Doomben 10,000 Day win for Ryan who also took out the Lord Mayor’s Cup earlier with Angel Of Mercy, and representing the stable trackside was again Sterling Alexiou.

“He’s got good ability,” Alexiou said of Time For War.

“It’s just a matter of him bringing it to race day.”

After bringing it today though Alexiou confirmed they would be considering a JJ Atkins acceptance.

“We’ll have to look at it now,” he said.

“See how the horse pulls up.”

If they do give the horse a chance to stretch out of the mile, Angland is confident they can perform and win so long as they act the same way they did today.

“He can win those sort of races if he just behaves,” the jockey said.

“He’s got to put it all together, behave and that’s when he runs his best.”
