First Group Winner for Little Avondale Stud's Time Test

Media Release - Thursday September 2

Little Avondale Stud shuttle stallion Time Test (GB) recorded his first Group victory as a sire on Wednesday when Rocchigiani won the Group III Renate und Albrecht Woeste Zukunftsrennen (1400m) at Baden Baden.

The Peter Schiergen-trained colt defeated Arnis Master by a length and a half, with Calif a further two lengths in arrears in third.

With the victory, Rocchigiani became Time Test’s second stakes winner after Tardis won the Listed St Hugh’s Stakes (1050m) at Newbury last month.

A multiple Group II winner by Dubawi, Time Test boasts two further Group performers in The King’s Horses, who was third in the Gr.3 Premio Primi Passi (1200m) at Milan, and Sunset Shiraz, who was runner-up in the Gr.2 Debutante Stakes (1400m) at the Curragh.


Time Test has made a great start to his stud career with his first European runners.

Time Test, who served a full book of 135 mares in 2020, has once again garnered plenty of support from breeders this year with Little Avondale Stud announcing earlier this week that his book is once again full for the current breeding season.
