Impossible Time, last year's champion older female in Canada, is in foal to Speightstown and may not race again after winning the Victoriana for the second time.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario – Impossible Time, defending her title in the Victoriana Stakes, capped a 3-for-3 day for trainer Roger Attfield here at Woodbine last Sunday.

“A perfect day is always okay, and it had been kind of slow for a while,” said Attfield, who also sent out Smart Penny to win her maiden and Mobilizer to score under second-level allowance terms to run his record to 5 for 8 here for the week.

Attfield conditions Impossible Time, who is a 6-year-old mare, for her owner and breeder Chuck Fipke.
