Trial for Steps In Time Ahead of 2014 Tatt’s Tiara

Confirmed to retire into a breeding career come the 2014 spring, trainer Joseph Pride has revealed talented mare Steps In Time will contest a barrier trial on Friday ahead of a likely swansong in the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) at Brisbane’s Eagle Farm Racecourse on June 21st.

Returning to the track in peak condition this year, Steps In Time headed back to the spelling paddock after an unlucky run on the soaked Randwick course in the Group 1 T.J. Smith Stakes (1200m) on April 5th, and is reportedly in good condition ahead of Friday’s trial.

Yet to make a final decision on whether or not the six-year-old will make the trip north for the Tatt’s Tiara next week, Pride told TVN Steps In Time will need to put on a good display to warrant a tilt at Brisbane’s final Group 1 race this season.

“She seems good. I’ve been fairly happy with her. She’s had a good couple of weeks and is in good order,” Pride said.

“She went back to the owners’ place, Meredith Park, for close enough to two weeks. We had a foot abscess to get over and it was easier to have her out of work, so we rested it completely

“We’ll know more on Friday because I want to see her trial very well.”

Securing an impressive career of nine race victories and a further four minor places from just 26 competitive race starts to date, Steps In Time has been unable to figure in contention over two previous attempts on the Tattersall’s Tiara; finishing 12th in 2011 and thirteenth in the 2013 edition.

Returning to the track in career-best form this season, the Danehill Dancer mare was unlucky not to claim a third consecutive Group 2 Breeders’ Classic (1200m) title when just pipped on the post by Catkins first-up on February 15th, before breaking through for a maiden victory at the highest level of Australian racing when charging home to win the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) prior to the T.J. Smith.
