No Time Like The Present!

Listed Ladies Mile

“She’s going to go through the divisions!” The words of winning jockey Craig Zackey will be music to the ears of owner George Nagel after Time For Love made a decent quality field look ordinary with an emphatic victory in Sunday’s R200 000 Listed Ladies Mile at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth.

A lightly raced daughter of the Australian bred Redoute’s Choice sprinter-miler Time Thief, Time For Love looked to have a tough ask off her modest 82 rating.

But she had the last laugh when she stormed home at 33-1 to beat My Flower Fate (10-1) by a length in a time of 100,59 secs and register her maiden stakes success in the process.

Rainbow Lorikeet (6-1) stayed on well for third, marginally ahead of the 33-10 tote favourite Princess Izzy in fourth. Under two lengths covered the quartet.

The race was a poignant reminder of the passing in March of Hassen Adams, as the winner was bred by Nadeson Park Stud.

The Crawford-Rix trained winner is out of the twice winning Jet Master mare, Teresina and was a well-bought R70 000 CTS Ready To Run purchase.

She has now won 3 races with 5 places from 8 starts for stakes of R335 926.

Time For Love looks one to follow.

The next Cape racemeeting is at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday 11 May.
