2000 bay filly by TIme Test (GB) ex Imperialistic (Ire) (Imperial Ballet (Ire))
Metric is by the very well bred young stallion Time Test, who was a winner of the Brigadier Gerard Stakes (Group 2) and finished third in the Coral-Eclipse (Group 1) in 2016. He produced a Group 3 winner from his first crop in Rocchigiani, and last season’s Beresford Stakes (Group 2) winner Crypto Force will be an important flag bearer for him this year. The dam, Imperialistic, was Listed placed and has already produced the German 1000 Guineas winner Electrelane, among other highly rated fillies.
Metric was in training for much of last season before meeting a slight setback in the autumn. Since then she has had a winter break and this patience will hopefully be rewarded as she comes into her three year old year a stronger filly. Hopefully she will be ready to go at the start of the flat turf season. She is leased from the National Stud.
