A timely win by Time For Victory (Time For War/Hembrook) at Gosford, Saturday 27th March 2021, saw the 3yo gelding take out the John Cross Memorial Conditional Benchmark 68 Handicap over 1100m.
He jumped well from Barrier 8 but was unable to take up a position on the fence, so he went forward to eyeball the leader Shadow Chaser, who had started best. Settling in second spot, it was not until the turn, when after some urging by Apprentice Jockey Tyler Schiller, he surged ahead to seize victory.
Sporting the colours of prominent Sydney racing identity, Max Whitby (Emerald Green, Red and White Checked Epaulettes, Checked Stripes on Cap), it was pleasing to see Time For Victory take the win and save the day for the stable.
Congratulations to all owners and connections.
