Looking to atone for a disappointing fifth-place effort as the favorite in the GII American Turf S. on the GI Kentucky Derby undercard May 4, Godolphin’s LEGEND OF TIME (GB) (c, 3, Sea The Stars {Ire}–Kissable {Ire}, by Danehill Dancer {Ire}) left it for late in Saturday’s GII Pennine Ridge S., but produced a stinging late turn of speed and attacked the wire to earn his first victory at the graded/group level. Favored at 9-10, the 150,000gns Tattersalls October purchase looked to bobble at the break and was therefore settled at the rear of the field by Joel Rosario as the rail-drawn White Palomino (Kitten’s Joy) took a well-bunched field through sensible fractions. Unhurried at the back of the field and ground-saving throughout, Legend of Time was popped the question in earnest nearing the stretch. Flat-footed for a stride or two with a furlong and a half to race, he was asked to split rivals with time ticking away and was along in the final couple of jumps. Legend of Time is a 72nd worldwide graded/group winner for the outstanding Sea The Stars and his fourth such winner in this country, joining Godolphin’s GII Fort Marcy S. winner Ottoman Fleet (GB), Star Fortress (Ire) and Casual Smile (GB). Sales history: 150,000gns Ylg ’22 TATOCT. O-Godolphin; B-Lordship Stud & Sunderland Holdings; T-Charlie Appleby.
