Decision Time Wins Fireball Handicap

Monday, 28th February 2011

Former Yarraman Park & now Woodside Park's stakes-winning & Gr1-placed sire Foreplay (Danehill-Procrastinate, by Jade Hunter) added a black-type success when top-weighted gelding Decision Time (Foreplay-Daunting Thought, by Just Awesome) returned from an almost 6-months spell to score a 0.75-length victory in the $100,000 Listed Fireball Handicap (1100m) for 3YOs at Rosehill. Decision Time (ridden by Brenton Avdulla for trainer Clarry Conners) defeated the fillies Celts (Lonhro-Dinna Fash, by Canny Lad) & Parriwi (Mossman-Sevillano, by Octagonal). Decision Time now has 7 wins (also including 2010's Gr2 Stan Fox Stakes over 1400m at Randwick, Listed Heritage Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill & Listed Black Opal Stakes over 1200m at Thoroughbred Park in Canberra) & 3 placings (in 2010's Gr1 Golden Slipper over 1200m at Rosehill, Gr2 Todman Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill & Gr3 San Domenico Stakes over 1000m at Randwick) from 12 starts for $1,258,700 earnings.
