Nadeson Park’s young sire Time Thief looks to have a smart sort on his hands in the form of the Hong Kong based E-Super.
The latter made it two wins on the trot when he landed the spoils in The Volunteers Challenge Cup over 1200m.
E-Super put up a smart effort when running away to score by a length, while giving runner up 12lbs.
The winner, who had previously won a handicap over 1200m at Happy Valley, has now won or placed in his last four outings and has now won three times and placed six times in just ten Hong Kong outings.
His G1 sire Time Thief, who was placed in both the G1 Caulfield Guineas and G1 , is a son of legendary stallion Redoute’s Choice (sire of SA champions Majmu and Musir), whose 20 plus G1 winners include the leading sires Snitzel and Stratum. A triple champion sire in Australia, Redoute’s Choice is also the sire of outstanding G1 winners Anamato, Absolutely, God’s Own, Miss Finland, Nadeem, Royal Descent, Wylie Hall, and former Horse Of The Year Lankan Rupee.
Time Thief, who is from the same family as champion sire and broodmare sire Centaine, is also from an outstanding female line.
His dam Procrastinate was a top class racemare, whose six wins included the G3 Tristarc Stakes. She has been an even better producer, however, with her notable progeny Time Thief’s three parts sister and multiple champion Laisserfaire (herself dam of smart recent winner Leisure Trip).
Procrastinate is also responsible for Time Thief’s top class own sister A Time For Julia, winner of the G3 Bellmaine Stakes, while Time Thief’s G1 placed three parts brother Foreplay is the sire, from limited opportunities, of G1 Golden Slipper runner up and Australian millionaire Decision Time.
Time Thief’s first local foals arrive in 2016.
