He’s earned $1.5 million and has an almost perfect first-up record but Decision Time still struggled to attract the punters in Saturday’s Concorde Stakes at Randwick.

The Clarry Conners-trained six-year-old’s career has not been without its problems but he was at his peak to reclaim the Concorde crown he won two years ago.

Sent out at $7 with Sessions dominating betting all week and starting at $2.20, Decision Time stalked the leaders and put in a determined sprint at the end of the 1000m to hold off the favourite by a half neck.

Delago Bolt ($26) was a length third while multiple Group One winner Hay List was a respectable fifth after yet another injury setback.

With Conners in Melbourne to oversee Dear Demi at Flemington, it was up to his trainer son Marc to stand up for Decision Time.

“He is pretty much a forgotten horse,” Conners said.

“He’s had his problems but he bounces back every time.

“Hopefully he’s got a good carnival ahead. There are plenty of options for him either here or in Melbourne.

“People forget he did run second in a Golden Slipper. He’s had a lot of problems but he has a lot of talent.”

Decision Time, the winner of nine of his 22 starts, ran second to Crystal Lily in the 2010 Slipper and extended his fresh record to four wins from six starts.

While he has had his fair share of problems, they pale in comparison to those of Hay List who was held up for a run in the straight, leading his jockey Glyn Schofield to say he could have finished closer.

The giant gelding also lost a plate from his off fore in the final few strides of the race.

“He was not the flashest into stride but the horse travelled really well and if he had got more room in the straight he would have finished closer,” Schofield said.

“It was an encouraging sign going forward.”

Trainer John McNair taped Hay List’s foot immediately after the race but said it was just a precaution.

Oakleigh Plate winner Mrs Onassis finished last of the nine runners and will more than likely head to the breeding barn in the coming weeks.
