Dubawi Momentum Continues

Sunday, 03 May 2020 22:37

Not even a racing hiatus in the NH due to the Coronavirus can keep super sire Dubawi out of the news.

Evergreen sprinter Jungle Edge (Dubawi-Jungle Girl by Carnegie) took his stake earnings to nearly $1.7 million when he won his sixth black-type event in the Group 3 DC McKay Stakes at Morpethville in Adelaide on Saturday. 

And after his record setting exploits for a first season sire in Great Britain last year, Dubawi’s son Night of Thunder is showing that the potency of the Dubawi sireline isn’t constrained by different gene pools and racing conditions, siring his sixth winner from just his 11th starter with Coup De Tonnere’s (Night of Thunder- Sea Terrace by Authorized) win at Geelong on Sunday. 

Night of Thunder is the only Australian first season stallion to date with two stakes-winners and trails only Pride of Dubai on earnings.

Australian breeders who missed out after Night of Thunder only stood the one Australian season, will have been buoyed by last week’s announcement that Dubawi’s son Too Darn Hot, Timeforms highest rated 3YO of 2019, will shuttle to Darley NSW this year.

Australasian breeders who have supported Dubawi’s son Time Test (Dubawi-Passage of Time by Dansili) in his two seasons to date at Little Avondale will be excited  about presenting the first crop of the dual Group Two winner at this summer’s NZB National Yearling Sale and abroad. 

At his 2020 COVID SPECIAL service fee of $6,000 plus GST, Time Test offers breeders incredible value.
