Time Test Breeding Incentive Announced


Time Test | Asuncion Pineyrua

A new incentive scheme for MGSW & MGISP Time Test (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}-Passage of Time {GB}, by Dansili {GB}) was announced by The National Stud on Tuesday. For breeders who purchase a nomination to the 6-year-old for the 2019 season, if a 2-year-old winner is the result, they will receive a free return to Time Test. The stallion stood his first season at The National Stud this spring where he covered 22 black-type performers and 22-black-type producers in his first book. The bay also stands at Little Avondale Stud in New Zealand during the Southern Hemisphere breeding season. He is slated to stand for £8,500 for the second consecutive year at The National Stud in 2019.

Time Test, who ran third in the G1 Coral-Eclipse S. and placed twice at the Grade I level Stateside, is out of G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud heroine Passage of Time, herself a full-sister to Group 2 winner Father Time (GB) and SW Continuum (GB). She is also a half-sister to G1 Falmouth S. victress Timepiece (GB) (Zamindar).

“Time Test is a stallion we have put a lot of faith in, he hails from an amazing family and was a very talented performer,” said The National Stud's Tim Lane. “He was a winning 2-year-old, his dam was a Group 1 winning 2-year-old and his sire was a Group 1 winning 2-year-old, but above this he showed class throughout his career. We felt this was a way to reward breeders who support Time Test in a notoriously difficult year and we have strong confidence this incentive will pay dividends for the breeders.”
