    THOSE old enough, and we know you are out there, will recall the 1960s sitcom, It’s About Time  which followed the escapades of two astronauts who travel back in time and meet up with the prehistoric family of Gronk and Shad.

    Fast forward to April 29, 2023 and once again . . . IT’S ALL ABOUT TIME as Club Menangle hosts Australian Pacing Gold Bullion eligible pacer, which will compete for a bonus of $250,000.

    To collect the bonus a filly, or one of the ‘boys’ has to win a heat and beat the clock in the final.

    The colt/gelding winner has to better 1.51.3 over a mile, while the filly’s record is 1.52.1 – unless faster times are set in the heats, in which case those times become the benchmarks to beat.

    In the glory days at Harold Park, timing lights were installed at the quarter markers for the Miracle Mile, set at every 30 seconds to turn from green to red.

    Johnny Tapp immortalised the practice in his 1974 vinyl classic, Little Hondo:  “When the mighty mite beat the fourth bright light, the pacing fans went wild”.

    Nostalgia aside, this is GOING to happen at Club Menangle on April 29.  Be there to go wild and cheer on these quality two-year-olds as they compete for $1.5million in prizemoney and bonuses.
