Breeding Right To Time Test Sells For 115,000gns


Time Test | The National Stud

A breeding right to Time Test (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), who sired four stakes winners last year in his first season with runners, was purchased by Peter and Ross Doyle Bloodstock on the Tattersalls Online platform on Wednesday for 115,000gns. The breeding right entitles the buyer, an unnamed client of the Doyles', to breed one mare to Time Test each season that he stands at The National Stud.

Time Test, who was himself a dual Group 2 winner and multiple Group 1-placed, sired black-type winners at a rate of 9.3% last year. He stands at The National Stud for £15,000. He stood for £8,500 his first four seasons.

Ross Doyle said, “He's a young sire going places, by a top sire in Dubawi out of a well-bred Dansili mare, which we love. It sounds like he's got a serious book of mares lined up for this season on the back of his stats and the physicals of his foals and yearlings on show at the recent sales. The team at the National Stud continue to do a great job with him. We have bought it for a client who will support him with a very nice mare.”

A breeding right to Time Test's National Stud barnmate Lope Y Fernandez (Ire), who enters stud in 2022, was sold to Dwayne Woods of Brook Stud for 24,000gns. The Lope Y Fernandez breeding right entitles the owner to one mare per year, plus an additional mare in 2023, 2024 or 2025.

“I had the pleasure of seeing Lope Y Fernandez recently and thought he had let down into a lovely stallion,” said Woods. “He is a great walker and lovely type and an exciting young stallion, and Brook Stud are looking forward to supporting him.”

A breeding right to A'Ali (Ire), who enters stud next year at Newsells Park Stud, was sold to Laurence Gleeson of Aughamore Stud for 22,000gns. It entitles the owner to breed one mare per year plus an additional mare each year from 2022 through 2025.
