Time Test ex Alys Love colt
Newmarket - Tattersalls October Auction Stakes (GBB Race)
We had to come away from Tattersalls, with this colt, at a hammer price of 37,000gns, by TIME TEST - and trained by the legendary SIR MARK PRESCOTT.
A beautiful looking colt, with a good walk, good size and scope for the future and a middle-distance pedigree being by the 10f dual Group 2 winning Juddmonte sire Time Test, whose stud fee rose from £8500 in 2021 to £15,000 in 2022, out of a New Approach mare who’s produced the winners of 5 races from her 3 runners to date.
This colt, with all the above attributes, looks set fair for a successful Heath House campaign, under the tutelage of the Arc winning maestro Sir Mark Prescott. Should he have the ability to win an Arc de Triomphe, or be a candidate for a sensible opening handicap mark and the ability to rattle up a sequence, or anything in between for that matter, he’s in the most capable of hands, rest assured!
He’s a very decent size, however he’s very strong for his age, so he could come to hand earlier that we’d anticipate and have a profitable 2yo career in 2023, but he’s been bought with a steady 2023 campaign in mind, really, culminating, all being well, with a progressive 3yo year where we ought to see his coronation, on more than one occasion, we’d like to envisage.
Such horses can command significant resale sums, both during and following their 3yo career, generally to the USA, America or to enter the National Hunt ranks in Great Britain or Ireland. There’s often a residential asset that can be realised and he wouldn’t be the first Heath House inmate where we’ve resold for a decent profit or a very considerable profit, for that matter. However, the fun of the fare is much more what it’s about and that’s paramount in our minds for 2023 and beyond for this fellow.
He looks the part; he’s bred to be smart and we’re excited about his prospects.
The same MPR buying team, who bought last year's yearlings have done a great job, with 18 pieces of 2yo black type earned this season and no doubt they have struck gold with this one too!
EARLY CLOSING RACE ENTRY:
The Class 2 £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes at Newmarket.
Training update (January 10th): Sir Mark reports - "He has been straight forward. He is a nice moving horse that canters sharply and looks mature. He may be a bit more forward than his pedigree suggests. He has had a clear run so far and is vey good to deal with."
Here he is at pre-training, during a visit from Sir Mark and some of our owners:
