In Her Time Thriving Ahead of Everest
Meanwhile, Newcastle trainer Ben Smith says top-class sprinting mare In Her Time is in career-best condition leading into the spring. In Her Time is set to resume in the Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on 30 September before racing second-up in the $13 million The Everest (1200m) at Royal Randwick on 13 October. "I actually pulled a blood off her on Monday and I'd say it's the best it's ever been," Smith told racing.com. "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." In Her Time, who will represent slot-holder TAB in The Everest, is currently rated an $11 chance for the world's richest turf race.
