Time Test yearlings on show

Yearlings by Little Avondale Stud’s exciting young stallion Time Test will parade to the public on Friday at 2pm at the Masterton-based stud farm.

Time Test, who has been back in the country a little over a fortnight, will also be on show, along with Per Incanto and Nadeem.

Interest in Time Test, a son of outstanding sire Dubawi, has been strong since his debut season in 2018 and continues off the back of his sire’s results and the quality of Time Test’s first foals.

“I knew the appeal of Dubawi when we bought into Time Test but it was too early to know how he’d go as a sire of sires,” Little Avondale’s Sam Williams said.

“Early on there was Makfi but now with Night of Thunder’s results and some other young sons of Dubawi hitting their straps as stallions, the timings been perfect, especially with his first crop (Time Test’s) going to the sales this summer.”

Time Test’s book of 130 mares is almost closed ahead of the forthcoming breeding season.

“He stamps his foals,” Williams said. “They’re all consistent in colour, have great bone and are very athletic. He’s left them very physical especially through the hind quarter, a typical Dubawi trait.”

Visitors are welcome to stay on after the parade for a barbecue and refreshments. To assist with preparations and COVID-19 restrictions those wishing to attend are asked to pre-register via office@lastud.co.nz
