The first foal of the dual Gr.2 winner Time Test was born at Brook Stud
The filly hails from an impressive family, as her dam is a half-sister to Gr.1 winner and sire Casamento and the dam of Gr.1 winner and sire Toronado.
Bred by Andrew Tinkler, who purchased her dam Matron Of Honour (Teofilo) for €190,000 as a yearling, she has a truly international pedigree. Her second dam, the French Listed winner Wedding Gift (Always Fair) is a half-sister to the dam of Gr.1 Goodwood Handicap winner French Clock and his Listed winning half-sister, who is also the second dam of the dual Australian Gr.1 winner Heart Of Dreams.
Time Test covered 111 mares during his first season at the National Stud and was heavily supported by leading breeders. By Dubawi, he hails from one of the Juddmonte’s deepest families as a son of 2yo Gr.1 winner Passage Of Time, a daughter of Zamindar and a full-sister to the Gr.1 Falmouth Stakes winner Timepiece, and a half-sister to Dansili’s Gr.2 King Edward VII Stakes winner Father Time.
The second dam Clepsydra is a Sadler’s Wells half-sister to Double Crossed, the dam of four-time Gr.1 winner Twice Over (Observatory). The third dam Quandry is a Blushing Groom half-sister to the champion All At Sea and it is the family of Gr.1 winners Mutual Trust and Banshee Breeze.
Dwayne Woods of Brook Stud ““She is a lovely bay filly, plenty of scope and correct. She has a beautiful head like her father and grandsire (Dubawi). We couldn’t be more thrilled with her, she seems to have plenty of quality”.
Tim Lane, Director of the National Stud said “We went to see the Time Test x Matron of Honour filly at Brook Stud and she is a very impressive foal. She is strong and has plenty of size. We are very lucky that Time Test was supported with top quality mares so the next few months will be an exciting time for us.”
Winner of six races, Time Test was also placed in the Gr.1 Eclipse Stakes, the Gr.1 Woodford Stakes and the Gr.1 Fourstardave Handicap and stands for £8,500 this year
