Breeding rights sold online

BREEDING rights in Time Test and Ardad sold for 100,000gns and 75,000gns respectively on Friday in an online Tattersalls auction. Tom Goffs of Blandford Bloodstock bought both lots on behalf of clients. Time Test (by Dubawi) stands at the National Stud in Newmarket. His fee this year was £8,500 but this is sure to rise following a great year on the track and in the sale ring. Ardad, sire of Group 1 winner Perfect Power, stands at Overbury Stud and his 2022 fee has been increased from £4,000 to £12,500.
