Stolen Time, a homebred for Drs. K.K. and Vilasini Jayaraman, experienced little difficulty stretching out to a mile and 70 yards at Calder Race Course. In his first race around two turns, the 2-year-old son of Time Bandit captured the Sept. 20 Foolish Pleasure Stakes by three-quarters of a length as the 8-5 favorite over a late-closing Second of June. Trainer William White has felt good about the colt’s potential all along.
“Going into each season, I evaluate my 2-year-olds and from the beginning I had him identified as my best colt,” the conditioner said. “I was very disappointed when I found out he wasn’t eligible for the (Florida) Stallion Stakes series. I thought he would have been a major player, but then you have to play with the hand you’re dealt. He’s lightly trained up to this point, and I think there is room for improvement.”
Stolen Time started his racing career with a close second-place effort at Calder Aug. 10, then won there three weeks later by 41/4 lengths. “I haven’t really looked past today’s race until now and maybe we will have to look at something out of town before later in the Tropical (at Calder) meet,” White said.
The Jayaramans, who are retired from the medical profession, own Tiffany Farm near Ocala, Fla. They bought Stolen Time’s second dam, Dearest Indu, for $16,000 at the 1985 Keeneland September yearling sale from Nuckols Farm at the time their operation was based near Hot Springs, Ark. They transferred the operation to Ocala in 1998. Dearest Indu, whose second dam, Indaba, was a full sister to English Horse of the Year Sir Ivor, developed into a multiple stakes winner and a stakes producer. Dearest Indu’s My Blonde Beauty was a stakes winner for the couple.
The Jayaramans also are represented this year by stakes winners Explosive Beauty and Royal Spy. The latter won the Maker’s Mile Mile Stakes (gr. IIT) at Keeneland and the Col. E.R. Bradley Handicap on grass at Fair Grounds. Explosive Beauty was a double stakes winner at Oaklawn Park.
Time Bandit, who is the sire of additional 2003 stakes winner Next Bandit, will stand the 2004 breeding season at Dr. Jerry Adkins’ Camelot Farm near Loranger, La., as the property of SMB Corporation. He formerly stood at Ryder’s River Ridge Farm near Natchitoches, La. His 2003 fee was $1,500, the same as his announced fee for 2004.—D.S.
