Blake Ryan, the son of gun trainer Gerald Ryan, will produce his first city runner at Rosehill on Saturday.

Blake Ryan will saddle up his first city runner when Critical Time contests the Midway Benchmark 72 Handicap (1300m) at Rosehill on Saturday.

The son of Rosehill trainer Gerald Ryan, Blake set up his operation at Hawkesbury in January, his first runner was a winner – Divine Future at Orange on February 20.

“Things are going well,” Ryan said.

“It hasn’t been easy but it’s not easy being a horse trainer. I’m not the only one that has had a few struggles in this job.

“I’ve got 15 in work, only four or five of them have raced, a few more are trialling this week.

“I’d like a few more but who wouldn’t and it’s up to me to keep producing and the phone will ring.”

Critical Time has proved a good advertisement for Ryan’s skills, in his two race starts.

A fifth placing on debut in a solid maiden before giving Ryan his fourth winner from only 28 starters when scoring at Hawkesbury on November 18.

“He was good the other day,” Ryan said

“It was a provincial and country maiden but I think it was a bit better win than you’d normally see in that class of race.

“It was a solidly run race, they ran a bit of time and Josh (Parr) said he was much too good for them but he didn’t know how to put them away.”

With only 54kg Parr won’t be aboard Critical Time on Saturday, replaced by Jay Ford and TAB fixed odds are keeping the three-year-old Shalaa colt safe at $18 despite a huge class rise.

“I think in time he’s going to be a Saturday city class horse,” Ryan said.

“Saturday is about seasoning him up.

“He’s a bit of a big kid and he needs to grow up so a trip to the city against the better class of horse will help him become a man.

“Going out there, if he gets a rough and tough among them, it might bring him on a bit.

“I’ve got no doubt he has the quality to compete in a Midway, whether or not he’s ready for it might be another story and we won’t know that until after Saturday.

“He’s a horse I’ve got a bit of time for and I’d like to maybe aim him up at a Provincial Championships.”
