Decision Time has proven he is going to be one of the big players of the spring carnival after he won the Group 3 Concorde Stakes last Saturday September 3, 2011.
The Clarry Conners-trained four-year-old won the Group 3 sprint by close to a length ahead of second place-getter Winter King and third place-getter Monton.
“He is a lovely horse, he is just a tryer,” Conners said.
“He is no superstar but by golly, he has got some heart and keeps coming up to the mark.
“He won his first three or four starts in a row, including the Black Opal and he just keeps coming up; he is just that sort of horse.
“We had a bit of trouble with him, we were nervous before today because it had taken us more than six months to get him here for today but it was worth it.”
Jockey Corey Brown was impressed with Decision Time’s win.
“He is very very honest,” Brown said.
“The race was run to suit, totally, but I actually pushed the button too early, I got there way too soon and he was running on empty by the time he got to the 100m but he still held his position all the way to the line.
“I was really really happy with what happened, plenty of speed and got out and rolling with the big weight and I would put him in the very good horse category.”
