TIMES SQUARE (FR) (f, 2, Zarak {Fr}–See You Always {GB}, by Siyouni {Fr}) was steadied to settled off the pace in fifth after the initial strides of this debut. Making headway in the straight, the 5-1 chance was shaken up to go second approaching the final furlong and kept on well once hitting the front with 150 metres remaining to deny the pacesetting Lacuna (GB) (Shalaa {Ire}) by an ultimately comfortable 1 1/4 lengths, becoming the first winner for her freshman sire (by Dubawi {Ire}). Half-sister to a yearling filly by Shalaa (Ire), she is the second of three foals and first scorer produced by an unraced half-sister to the dam of stakes-placed multiple Spanish champion Antonella (GB) (Dream Ahead). Descendants of the March-foaled homebred bay's third dam Simply Times (Dodge) include G1 Irish Derby hero Latrobe (Ire) (Camelot {GB}), stakes-winning G1 Epsom Oaks and G1 Irish Oaks placegetter Pink Dogwood (Ire) (Camelot {GB}), MGSW dual G1 Prix de la Foret second Welsh Emperor (Ire) (Emperor Jones), GSW G1 Cheveley Park S. runner-up Sunday Times (GB) (Holy Roman Emperor {Ire}) and the latter's MGISW daughter Newspaperofrecord (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, €13,500. Video, sponsored by TVG.
