Fresh off recording his first Group victory as a sire courtesy of Rocchigiani in the Gr.3 Renate und Albrecht Woeste Zukunftsrennen (1400m) on Wednesday, Little Avondale Stud shuttle stallion Time Test was celebrating his third individual stakes winner and second Group winner just 24 hours later.
Two-year-old filly Romantic Time charged home to win the Gr.3 Dick Poole Fillies’ Stakes (1200m) at Salisbury on Thursday, giving trainer William Stone his biggest moment in racing.
Jockey Hollie Doyle drove the juvenile to finish a length ahead of second placed Pearl Glory, with Crazyland a further shorthead back in third.
“They went very quick and she was a bit behind the bridle early on, and a bit intimidated up that rail, but halfway she got into a really nice rhythm,” Doyle said.
“I took the brave man’s route up the inside and thankfully I got a run. She’s seen that out well and she’s shown a bit of class.”
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.
