Exciting Times

TIME TEST 2024

YOUR OPPORTUNIY TO BREED TO THE BEST

It is little wonder that breeders the world over have afforded Time Test a royal welcome since his retirement to stud.

And its little exaggeration to say that Time Test has quickly lived up to those expectations and some, being the leading European first season sire in 2021 with four individual stakes winners and having three runners in New Zealand’s richest race, the 2022 Karaka Million for 2YO's. With five new Australasian 3YO stakes performers in 2023/24, Time Test is well on the way to fulfilling that early promise

 

From limited numbers to date his SH runners, whose oldest are 4YO's, include the stakes winner Leedox and Panic and the stakes placed Pushy, Sense of TimingThe Years, Running On Time, Madame Giselle and Timeless.

 

Panic Wins Stakes Race at 2024 Sydney Championships

Promising 3YO Panic took his record to four wins from six starts with a victory in the Listed, South Pacific Classic at Randwick in the 2024 Championships..

Exciting 3YO Pushy looked a leading Sydney spring 3YO in 2023, winning three of his four starts and running second in a stakes race, before been sold to Hong Kong, where he’s yet to start.

With a peerless pedigree matched by his looks and multiple Group victories on his CV, he has been very popular in the early stages of his career both at the English National Stud and at Little Avondale Stud.

TWO NEW AUSTRALASIAN STAKES PERFORMERS IN 2023/24

Largest crops still to come, having covered 460 mares in his last three NH seasons and 271 at Little Avondale.

As the only son of the legendary and hugely influential Dubawi at stud in New Zealand, he offers breeders unique opportunities to tap into the best bloodlines on offer.

Time Test is out of the Group One winning Dansili mare Passage Of Time and a family littered with winners to the highest level, including the multiple Group One winners Twice Over and Banshee Breeze and All At Sea, also successful at the highest level.

At his second 3YO start, he broke the Royal Ascot 2000m
track record.

Son of Dubawi
the most pre-potent stakes producing stallion
in the world today

As is the European custom, Time Test was the lightly-raced winner of six races, including a brace of Group Two victories and was a Group One placegetter in his native England and in North America.

Successful as a 2YO, he broke the Royal Ascot  track record track record over 2000 metres at his second start the following season before firmly establishing himself among the elite level European gallopers. His deeds earned him a Timeform rating of 125.

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

Bred and raced by Prince Kallid Abdullah’s Juddmonte Farms, Time Test was effective in top company from 1400 to 2000 metres and was blessed with what all breeders clamour for, a lightning turn of foot.

Along with Galileo, Time Test’s sire Dubawi, a great grandson of the legendary Mr Prospector, is globally acknowledged as the most pre-potent stakes producing stallion in the world today.

Dubawi’s sire sons already include Makfi (43 stakes winners), Night of Thunder (27), Poet’s Voice (23) and the up-and-coming New Bay and Zarak.

Consistency, adaptability, toughness and the ability to quicken off a good tempo are all attributes apparent in progeny that have seen Time Test make such an promising start to his career. Some of his leading stakes performers to date include:

Crypto Force 1st Gr.2 Beresford Stakes
Romantic Time 1st Gr.3 Dick Poole Fillies Stakes
Rocchigiani 1st Gr.3 Zukunfts Rennen Stakes & 2nd Gr.2 German 2000 Guineas
Tardis 1st Listed St Hughs Stakes
The King’s Horses 1st Listed Criterium Nazionale
Panic 1st Listed South Pacific Classic
Leedox 1st Listed Auckland Futurity Stakes
Pushy 2nd Listed Ming Dynasty Quality
The Years 2nd Gr.3 Canberra Black Opal Stakes
Sunset Shiraz 2nd Gr.2 Debutante Stakes, Gr.3 Park Stakes, 3rd Gr.1 Moyglare Stakes
Running on Time 2nd Listed Port Adelaide Guineas
Sense of Timing,2nd Listed NZB Airfreight Stakes & 3rd Listed Dunedin Guineas
Madame Giselle 3rd Listed NZB Airfreight Stakes

Time Test has consistently found strong support at all the major Australasian yearling sales. His 2024 Karaka yearlings sold to $240,000, the top price of the Book 2 sale, with two more yearlings fetching over $100,000..

Time Test’s profile suggested that the best of his progeny would come as three and 4YO's. With five Australasian 3YO's stakes performers in 2023 and 2024, and any number of other lightly raced promising types, the stallion is on the way to  joining the  ranks of NZ’s leading stallions.
