Time Test (Dubawi – Passage of Time)

As the only son of Dubawi at stud in New Zealand, Time Test offers an array of options to broodmare owners. The pre-eminent sire lines of Mr Prospector and Northern Dancer are well represented, but they’re sufficiently removed to build a well-balanced pedigree.

Breeders with an eye to the future will have seen the impact Dubawi’s sons are beginning to make a stud. Makfi is a proven Group One influence while the younger Night Of Thunder is making his mark at stakes level.

Dubawi, who along with Galileo are the most pre-potent black-type sires in the world today, is a great grandson of Mr Prospector from an Italian Oaks winning daughter of Deploy, a grandson of Mill Reef through his Derby winning son Shirley Heights.

Time Test’s dam the is the Group One winning 2YO Passage of Time, who is by the successful Danehill stallion Dansili, and is a half-sister to the top-flight Timepiece (by Zamindar, a grandson of Mr Prospector). Their dam Clepsydra is a daughter of Sadlers Wells and is a half-sister to the dam of the multiple elite level winner Twice Over, a daughter of Observatory, another grandson of Mr Prospector.

So Time Test’s female family clearly crosses well with Mr Prospector and duplicating Mr Prospector in a pedigree has proven highly successful - champion sire Tapit and Classic winner California Chrome are two classic examples.

The most pronounced genetic trait exhibited in Dubawi’s best progeny is
the duplication of

Rip Van Winkle, Stravinsky, No Excuse Needed, Per Incanto, Postponed and Iffraaj are but a selection of mares offering the Mr Prospector bloodline.

The most pronounced genetic trait exhibited in Dubawi’s best progeny is the duplication of Never Bend, present in Dubawi through Shirley Heights and his sire Mill Reef, a son of Never Bend. Lucky Nine, Mubtaahij, Benbatl, Al Kazem, Old Persian, Night of Thunder, Arabian Queen and  former European champion juvenile Too Darn Hot are all Group One winners by Dubawi exhibiting this pedigree pattern. 

Sadlers Wells line mares have also had a lot of success with Dubawi and the influential factor at work here is probably Fairy Bridge, Sadlers Wells dam, whose sire Bold Reason is a half-brother to Never Bend.  

O’Reilly line mares cross nicely with Time Test

Bullbars mares are an incredibly good genetic match for Time Test. From a Singspiel mare, the dam sire of Too Darn Hot, Bullbars also carries two lines of Mill Reef including a female line, as well as a male line of Sadlers Wells.

O’Reilly line mares cross nicely with Time Test, duplicating the Never Bend bloodline and mares with a line of Never Bend’s half-brother Bold Reason, through Sadlers Wells and his son Montjeu, or via Sound Reason, should be considered.

Northern Dancer’s son Lyphard has also nicked well with Dubawi. Mares by stallions such as Power, Redwood and Showcasing carry lines of Lyphard, with Power and Redwood having the added attraction of lines of Shirley Heights which have gone into orbit with Dubawi.

That’s the beauty of standing a stallion such as Time Test. With his tremendous bloodlines and beautiful pedigree, he offers the discerning breeder a great opportunity to create another high-class racehorse.

First and foremost, stockman and people whose interest in the animal translates into an innate ability to read how a horse will develop. I’ll see a foal at LA and Sam or Buzz will tell me how they expect it to develop. I’ll see it during my Karaka inspections 12 months later, and you could blow me over with a feather
