2012 Coolmore Classic To Star Steps In Time – Rosehill Preview

March 14th, 2012

The Group 1 Coolmore Classic is due to take place at Rosehill Racecourse on Saturday March 24, 2012.

The Coolmore Classic is worth $600,000 in prize money and is open to fillies and mares aged three-year-old and upwards.

Run over a distance of 1,500 metres, the 2012 Coolmore Classic is run under quality handicap conditions.

Steps In Time will be one of the horses to line up for this year’s Coolmore Classic after her convincing Listed Wiggle Stakes win last weekend.

The four-year-old mare has won all three of her race starts this campaign, including the Group 2 Breeders Classic last month.

Trainer John O’Shea’s foreman Bryce Heyes was thrilled with Steps In Time’s progression.

“Two years ago we said to the owners wouldn’t it be great if in two years’ time she could be running in the Coolmore,” he said.

“There’s only one place for her to go now and that’s the Coolmore.

“She has been well placed and defied the handicapper and it was a great win.”

Steps In Time has won five of her eight race starts and has earned more than $340,000 in prize money.

The Coolmore Classic will be the Danehill Dancer filly’s second attempt at Group 1 level, with her first resulting in a disappointing 12th place finish in the Tattersall’s Tiara in Brisbane last year.
