Time To Torque in Sunshine Coast Guineas 2016

The time is now for progressive three-year-old Time To Torque to break through in stakes class according to Gold Coast trainer Kelly Doughty who saddles the youngster up in Saturday’s 2016 Sunshine Coast Guineas.

A final field of 15 face off in this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m) over the mile on Caloundra Cup Day including Doughty’s Gold Coast-trained Show A Heart gelding Time To Torque.

To date the up-and-coming Queenslander has had eight starts for three wins and three seconds, a smart record as he gears up for his maiden Black-Type assignment.

Last time out the grey-and-black horse enjoyed a narrow win over 1350m at Doomben with Michael Cahill aboard with 57.5kg.

For the Sunshine Coast Guineas, Time To Torque drops a half-kilo at set weights and Cahill retains the ride from a mid-field barrier seven draw.

Doughty is full of confidence that the lead-up form of her runner suggests he can be a competitive force in the race won last Queensland Winter Racing Carnival by subsequent Cox Plate winner Winx.

“On what he has shown us I am confident he won’t be out of place on Saturday in the Guineas,” she told AAP.

“His last start win at Doomben showed he likes to win. He was fifth on the turn on a day they weren’t making ground but he really tried hard and got up to win.”

Time To Torque, who Doughty not only trains but also bred with her husband Gary, is also no stranger to the distance having won over 1666m at Ipswich in late March.

The latest Sunshine Coast Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au are firmly led by Kevin Kemp’s Daybreak Lover Stakes winning filly from last Saturday Sold For Song ($3.10) drawn wide in barrier 12.

She is followed closely in Sunshine Coast Guineas betting by Michael Moroney’s classy Victorian visitor Tivaci ($3.70) who Damian Browne rides from gate two.

Doughty’s runner meanwhile is only rated a $21 outsider to beat home a field brimming with stakes performers, a good price according to the trainer who also trained the horse’s dam Eminence Grise.

“I trained Eminence Grise and she was Group Three placed. We took her over as a broodmare and she has been very successful for us,” Doughty said.

“We have had a few other race mares we have been successful with as broodmares.

“It may take three years to get a foal to the races but once you get a good broodmare she can produce a long line of horses for you.

“Time to Torque’s full brother Black Cash got through to open company and was a Melbourne winner. Eminence Grise now has a yearling, soon to be two-year-old, by Jet Spur who is showing some potential.”

Future racing plans for Time To Torque could include a trip south for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival for a shot at the greys’ series of races.

“Whether it is this year or next year we are looking at taking Time to Torque to Melbourne for the greys race series,” Doughty confirmed.
