Time Test Breeding Right Tops Goffs Online Sale

Time Test | The National Stud

A breeding right to young National Stud stallion Time Test (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), who was last year's leading European first-season sire by black-type winners with four, topped the Goffs Online Sale of Stallion Breeding Rights when fetching a bid of £100,000 from Dash Grange Stud.

A breeding right to last year's champion European first-season sire Cotai Glory (GB) was purchased by Paul Harley Bloodstock for €40,000, while Joseph Burke purchased a breeding right to Profitable (Ire) for €35,000. Burke, who brokered the deal for Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners to purchase Profitable's G2 Queen Mary S. winner Quick Suzy (Ire) last year, said, “All my clients and partners keep our mares at Oghill House Stud where Hugh Hyland has always been a big believer in Profitable. Sure enough, two of the sire's three stakes-winning 2-year-olds thus far have been produced at Oghill–Quick Suzy and Mr Professor– so we hope to emulate that success once again.

“I was fortunate enough to be able to secure Goffs graduate Quick Suzy privately on behalf of Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners prior to her winning the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot, a day we'll never forget, so I'm a big fan. Considering Profitable didn't win a group race until he was four, he has made a hugely encouraging start to his career and we think he has a very bright future.”

Breeding rights to Territories (Ire) and Belardo (Ire) sold for £18,000 and €16,500, respectively.

Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said, “Today's online sale completes a successful week for Goffs and marks a first for the company–selling horses in a traditional, physical sale and also in an online only auction in the same week. It demonstrates the ever-growing capabilities and ongoing innovation of Goffs to be able to conduct auctions in both spheres and it has been very pleasing to see all five of the breeding rights sell. The sale has provided a solid platform on which we can grow and we look forward to expanding our online sales offer in the future.”
