In the colours of Qatar Racing Limited, Time Scale lined up in the Listed Empress Fillies’ Stakes at Newmarket as a favourite yesterday, following her impressive six-length victory at Chepstow a fortnight ago on her second career start.
The Ralph Beckett-trained bay filly dazzled again yesterday afternoon at Newmarket. Once the start signal was given, she was smartly away to sit up on the pace in the six-furlong straight run for two-year-olds on Newmarket’s Rowley Mile.
Travelling strongly throughout under Oisin Murphy, Time Scale began to pull clear of her rivals inside the final two furlongs. With a professional attitude and an impressive acceleration, she won in a dominant display by three lengths and three quarters in front of Concessions, who finished second for trainer Richard Hannon and jockey Ryan Moore. The Cheveley Park Stud-owned and Roger Varian-trained Undertake was further two-and-a-half lengths behind in third under David Egan.
By young stallion Charm Spirit, who stands under the Qatar Racing Limited banner at Tweenhills Stud, Time Scale is out of An Ghalanta, who was Group placed for trainer and breeder Jim Bolger. An Ghalanta was bought by Qatar Racing Limited at the Goffs November Sale in 2012. She is the dam of Bletchley, who was second in the Group 2 Nassau Stakes at Woodbine, Canada.
