Terrific Time for Oratorio

Oratorio filly Our Time Will Come has reprised her debut win with another cavalier victory at Ascot.

She led them up in the Caltex Plate (1000m) on Saturday and then showed a brilliant turn of foot to score with plenty in hand from Oratorio colt Swift Platinum.  The Paul Jordan trained youngster had opened the Ascot season on a winning note but was the victim of cut-throat tactics when beaten second-up.

“She was eye-balled the whole way last time and that drives me mad,” Jordan declared.  “She dropped the other filly at the top of the straight and only capitulated in the last 150 metres.

“The one that eye-balled her finished last and the people that backed her should really have a think about how she was ridden.

“But our filly was terrific today.  There’s no downside to winning.”

Our Time Will Come (2f Oratorio – Bantry Bay by Tale of the Cat) is raced by Harvey Crossman’s Lima Syndicate and has now earned $134,200 including Westspeed bonuses of $55,000.  She cost $45,000 from Mungrup Stud at the 2015 Perth Magic Millions.

Her dam Bantry Bay won the G3 SAJC Sires’ Produce Stakes and she has a perfect record with four winners from four to the races.  The mare foaled an Oratorio colt in August.

Oratorio (Stravinsky) stands at Mungrup Stud and he has last year’s Champion WA 2YO Lucky Street in contention for the G1 Winterbottom Stakes at Ascot this Saturday.
