A daughter of Cape sire Time Thief, who has six lots on today’s CTS Ready To Run Sale, the top-class Australian sprinting mare In Her Time has been confirmed for next month’s Hong Kong International Sprint.
Trainer Kris Lees told AAP that Brenton Avdulla who rode her in her most two recent starts – in The Everest and Darley Classic – will retain the ride in the 1200m Gr1 race at Sha Tin. Since putting up another good straight track performance when placing in the Darley Classic at Flemington, Lees has kept In her Time ticking along at his Newcastle stables ahead of the trip to Hong Kong, and feels she is in good shape. Winner of the Gr1 Galaxy and Gr1 Lightning, as well as boasting another 6 Gr1 placings, In Her Time’s presence in the field will provide The Everest form assessors a solid guide on just how good likely favourite Aethero is.
