In Her Time strike in Lightening, by SA resident Stallion

Outstanding mare In Her Time secured her second Group 1 today when winning the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes at Flemington.

In Her Time (Time Thief x Hell It’s Hot) further proved herself one of the country’s leading sprinters with the determined win, taking her career prizemoney past the $3m mark. Time Thief stands in South Africa for owner Hassan Adams in the Western Cape. 

The Inglis Classic graduate also won The Galaxy at Rosehill last autumn at the top level.

She becomes the fourth Inglis graduate to win a Group 1 this year joining Beat The Clock (Centenary Sprint Cup in Hong Kong), Enzo’s lad (Telegraph Hcp in New Zealand) and Atyaab (Cape Derby in South Africa).

In Her Time has now raced twice down the Flemington straight for a narrow second behind Santa Ana Lane in last year’s VRC Classic, and today’s win.

She will hence next race in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap down the straight in three weeks’ time.

Owner Peter Brown described In Her Time (pictured) – a graduate of the 2014 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale when offered by Kanangra – as “one mighty fine mare’’.

“I am very lucky to have her and we are in a great position to now be able to look at all the big sprint races with her and see where we want to go,’’ Brown said.
“None of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for [breeders] John and Denise Cobcroft and Kanangra, who did all the early work with her.

“I’d also like to thank [trainer] Kris Lees and [assistant trainer] Cameron Swan for everything they have done with her since taking over from [former trainer] Ben [Smith]. It’s a great day.’’

In Her Time was bred by the Estate of the late Denise Cobcroft.
