Race arrives in time

Three-year-old Race Against Time indicated he was a promising middle-distance performer with an excellent win at Morphettville on Friday, December 17.

Heavily backed from $4 into $2.15 favourite, Race Against Time was given the run of the race by Barend Vorster in the Phoenix – Everest Greyhound Plate (1600m).

The Tony & Calvin McEvoy-trained gelding didn’t begin best but was able to settle three back on the inside in the early stages.

Vorster allowed him to stride forward past the 400-metre mark and he ran home strongly in the home straight.

Race Against Time won by three-quarters of a length from Yellow Idol ($6) with Charm Slinga ($9.50) a long neck away third.

Trainer Tony McEvoy said Race Against Time had deserved the victory.

“He’s certainly earnt that win,” McEvoy said.

“He’s been very consistent, but the penny hasn’t quite dropped.

“That will take him a long way, winning that race today.

“I think he will get further too, this fella.

“He was a beautiful yearling at the Adelaide Magic Millions Yearling Sale, and he presented like a horse that would be quite sharp, but he just didn’t have the speed.

“I will think about stretching him out to a bit further now he can go on with it.

“Penwortham was a bit too good for us last time at Gawler, came off our back and beat us, but there was three lengths back to third.

“So, I think he deserved that win today.”

Winning jockey Barend Vorster said Race Against Time had to overcome an awkward start.

“He didn’t begin that well,” Vorster said.

“He jumped out a little bit sideways.

“I had been looking to be just behind the leader, but the pace was nice and genuine, and he landed in a good spot for me.

“On a nice big track like we are today at Morphettville I was just able to bowl up into it.

“I came into at the last 300 (metres) and it was nice he went on with it today.”
