2010 Stan Fox Stakes favourite Decision Time proved why he is a horse to be reckoned with by taking a stunning victory in this year’s race. However, on the heels of a fantastic victory came some sad news for the Clarry Conners-trained gelding. After the horse was returned to the enclosure, it was discovered that he was bleeding from both nostrils, and thus incurred a three-month banning from racing.
It’s terrible news for Conners who had just finished announcing his plans to take Decision Time to Flemington for the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes. Despite the incident, Conners isn’t letting it dim the gelding’s magnificent performance in the 2010 Stan Fox Stakes. It marks the three-year-old’s sixth victory in 11 starts.
Top Drop finished in second with jockey Blake Shinn aboard, and Halekulani took third with jockey Nash Rawiller.
