The 10-year-old Nayef mare Pitter Patter is offered for sale, with the added bonus of being in foal to the exciting National Stud-based sire Time Test. The asking price is £6,500 and she stands 16.2hh.
Pitter Patter was a talented racemare when in training with Fergal O'Brien, comfortably winning her first two starts in National Hunt Flat races. She went on to run a handful of times over hurdles, placing once and running with credit in stakes company.
Although she did not race on the level herself, Pitter Patter nonetheless possesses a smart flat pedigree, notable for its speed and precocity.
She is out of the Pivotal mare Pixie Ring, who won both of her career starts (at six-furlongs), and is therefore a sibling of Pigeon Pie, who won twice, including a five-furlong contest on racecourse debut in the April of her two-year-old campaign.
Pixie Ring was in turn a sibling of the Listed-placed Airex, whilst the further family features the great sprinter Marwell, her Classic and multiple Grp-1 winning daughter Marling, plus a host of other high-class performers.
It is also important to pass comment on the damsire Nayef, whose capabilities in that sphere have been highlighted recently by the outstanding Palace Pier. The performances of John Gosden's star miler are sure to lead to an increased level of interest in Nayef mares in the future.
Since retiring from the racecourse Pitter Patter has produced three foals. Her first runner, the three-year-old Havana Gold gelding Ring of Gold, showed lots of promise when finishing an excellent second in a mile maiden at Leicester on racecourse debut in July. She also has a Hot Streak two-year-old named Lifeisjustaflicker in training in Ireland, whilst she produced a filly foal to Aclaim this year.
As detailed above, Pitter Patter is currently in foal to Time Test, with a last scan date of 25/03/2020. A son of the mighty Dubawi and out of the Grp-1 winner Passage of Time, Time Test was a dual Grp-2 winner and multiple times Grp-1 placed during his racing career, and his first crop will emerge onto racecourses next year.
His foals auctioned for up to 62,000gns in 2019, whilst he commands a covering fee of £8,500. These figures bring Pitter Patter's extremely competitive pricing into sharp focus.
The mare is kept at Coln Valley Stud, Coln St Dennis, Cheltenham. Please get in touch for more details.
