The Everest - Royal Randwicke on 13 October

Nadeson Park stallion Time Thief’s first Gr1 winner In Her Time will contest the world’s richest turf race in October.

In Her Time, who won the Gr1 The Galaxy at Rosehill earlier this year, will line up in the $13 million (R127 million)  The Everest (1200m) at Royal Randwick on 13 October, where she will represent slot-holder TAB.

Newcastle trainer Ben Smith says the top-class sprinting mare is in career-best condition leading into the spring.

In Her Time is set to resume in the Gr2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on 30 September before going into the Everest.

“I actually pulled a blood off her on Monday and I’d say it’s the best it’s ever been,” Smith told “It’s only the early stages. She’s only trotting and cantering at the moment but by the end of the week we’ll start a little pace work with her.

She’s lovely and free in her action.” Smith added: “She’ll have a trial at the end of August or early September and an exhibition gallop before the Premiere.”

A ¾ brother to SA Champion Sprinter Laisserfaire, Time Thief stood his first season at stud in Australia in 2010 and relocated to South Africa in 2015.

Runner up in the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas, the son of Redoute’s Choice is sire of this Aus Gr1 millionaire In Her Time and multiple stakes winner Volkoff and other stakes performers.

A top class racehorse, Time Thief won or placed in six of his seven outings. Winner of the Listed Zeditave Stakes, Time Thief’s top performances included a second in the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas, where he was beaten by Whobegotyou, and a third in the Gr1 Australia Stakes, to champion Apache Cat.

His first SA yearlings were sold this season.
