TIME TEST (16hh, 2012 Dubawi x Passage Of Time)
£8,500 1st October SLF
Purchased from Prince Khalid Abdullah’s Juddmonte Farms, Time Test represents an exciting new chapter for The National Stud.
Winner twice at Gr.2 level including the Joel Stakes over a mile and of two other Gr.3 contests, he was also Gr.1 placed on four occasions including in the Eclipse Stakes at Sandown. Also a winner at two, Time Test will be best remembered for his demolition job in the Gr.3 Tercentenary Stakes at Royal Ascot, which saw him break the previous race record time by 1.25 seconds. A record which he still holds.
Trainer Roger Charlton said “Time Test blew away the opposition at Royal Ascot as a three-year-old when he looked like a Gr.1 horse. Speed and acceleration were his main assets and I’m convinced he would have won Gr.1 races had ground conditions been in his favour.”
By one of the world’s greatest stallions in Dubawi, his dam line adds even more to his commercial appeal. With a beautiful Juddmonte pedigree, he hails from a family of greats like Twice Over, All At Sea and Banshee Breeze. Time Test offers breeders a unique opportunity to breed to a son of Dubawi that had precocity, speed and soundness. From a great, proven Juddmonte family, he has all the right attributes to make a top class stallion and is a hugely exciting addition to our roster.
