TIME TEST 2019/20

YOUR OPPORTUNIY TO BREED TO THE BEST

There are no more eagerly awaited first foals on the ground in NZ this spring than those of Little Avondale’s latest acquisition, Time Test. A beautifully bred son of the legendary Dubawi, who stands at £250,000,  Time Test has all the attributes to make a high class stallion.

From the Group 1 winning two-year Dansili mare Passage of Time, Time Test, a dual Group 2 and 3 winner in his own right and rated 125 by Timeform, stood his inaugural season at the English National Stud in the spring of 2018 before serving a book of 116 highly credentialed mares in his first season at Little Avondale last year.

Time Test is the quintessential modern day English stayer. Immaculately bred, athletic and blessed with a wonderful turn of foot, he was a high class performer who competed against the best Northern Hemisphere horses on the turf between a mile and 2000m over 14 career starts, winning six times with seven minor placings, culminating in stake earnings of 606,000 pounds.

A winner over 1400m at two, Time Test announced himself as a truly serious horse with a spectacular performance at his second 3YO start when he broke the Royal Ascot 2000m track record. His next start was the Gr.1 Juddmonte International, where, on unsuitable wet ground, he ran fourth behind The Derby and Prix de L ‘Arc de Triomphe winner Golden Horn and The Grey Gatsby. Dropped back to a mile for his following start, he won the Gr.2 Joel Stakes at Newmarket in 1.35.8. The fifth and final race of his three-year-old campaign was in the Breeders Cup Turf Mile; starting equal third favourite, he was unplaced on a rain affected track.

Time Test started three times at four, all in the UK, accumulating wins at Gr.2 and 3 level, both on good tracks, and a third placing in the Gr.1 Coral Eclipse Stakes on soft going.

Transferred to the New York stable of the leading American trainer Chad Brown for his 5YO campaign, Time Test resumed with a second placing in a Grade 3 1800m on a “yielding” turf at Belmont Park before closing out his career with two second placed finishes in Gr.1 events, the latter to the Champion American 2017 Turf Horse and Breeders Cup Mile winner World Approval over 1 mile.
Roger Charlton, leading English trainer and Time Test’s conditioner for his 11 start U.K career, had this to say about his charge:

“Time Test blew away the opposition at Royal Ascot as a three-year-old. Speed and acceleration were his main assets.” Roger Charlton

Bred and raced by Prince Kallid Abdullah’s Juddmonte Farms, Time Test boasts a pedigree second to none on the world stage. 

Along with Galileo, his sire Dubawi, a great grandson of the legendary Mr Prospector, is universally regarded as the most pre-potent black-type stallion in the world today. As at August 2019, Dubawi led the Northern Hemisphere with 23 Group wins for the calendar year, four ahead of Galileo and eight more than Deep Impact.

Passage of Time, Dubawi’s dam, was a Group 1 winner at two and placed in the Group 1 Breeders Cup Filly and Mare Turf, she in turn hailing from the great Juddmonte family of four time Group 1 winner and promising sire Twice Over and All At Sea.

History, tradition, family, good values and lots of fun. Also when we inspect an LA yearling we do so with confidence in the horses’ upbringing, soundness and temperament. It’s a theory that has worked well because with Dominic we’ve bought the likes of Redeem The Dream and the stakeswinner Sir Lovesalot
