In Good Time Attempts Another Upset
Wyong-trained mare In Good Time (Time Thief-Turbo Rose, by Strategic) paid $61 when she won the Listed Ascot Handicap at Eagle Farm over 1200m in mid-June, and her Wyong based trainer Tracey Bartley told racingqueensland.com.au she hopes the mare can do it again in the Listed TAB Bright Shadow this Saturday. The winner of seven races nearly died after an accident on Father's Day last year. "She severed her flexor tendon in the pool when she got her leg up in the pool and cut it on a tile," Bartley said. "We were devasted at first, she couldn't walk and we had to box her for four months. She was in plaster for the first month but then we were able to just wrap the injury." In Good Time will be ridden on Saturday by Dale Smith, and is currently being prepared by local trainer Barry Lockwood. "Barry is very happy with her and we're hoping she'll get a dry track again," Bartley said. "I can't see why she can't win again but if it happens to rain on Friday then she won't run and will go to Grafton for the Ramornie. But at this stage Brisbane is the preference."
