Decision Time has won nine of his 22 race starts and has earned more than $1.47 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

The Foreplay gelding was first-up in the 2013 Concorde Stakes after taking a three month spell following his 17th placing in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap in June.

Jockey Blake Shinn was over the moon to see Decision Time win his first race in two years.

”He comes up every preparation and he is just a very good sprinter,” he said.

”He travelled very well and I could hear Sessions coming, but he found a kick.

”It is a pretty good sign to beat a horse like Sessions, who they think is a Group 1 horse, giving three kilograms at the start of a preparation.”

Decision Time was paying odds of $7 to win the 2013 Concorde Stakes at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Meanwhile, Hay List placed a gallant fifth in the race, despite being disappointed for a run in the final straight and missing the kick.

”He was very good considering he has only had one gallop in the last couple of weeks,” said Hay List’s jockey Glyn Schofield.

”He really didn’t get much room in the last 100m, but if he got out he certainly would have been a lot closer.”
