Not This Time | Jon Siegel

Not This Time (Giant's Causeway), whose three-time Grade I-winning son Up To the Mark is a leading candidate for the GI Breeders' Cup Turf and Horse of the Year honors, will stand the 2024 breeding season for a fee of $150,000, stands-and-nurses terms, at Taylor Made Stallions. Not This Time stood the 2023 season for $135,000.

The sire of 2022 champion 3-year-old male Epicenter, Not This Time has gone from strength to strength this term, and sits in eighth position on the general sire list with better than $10.4 million in progeny earnings. The 9-year-old stallion has been represented by no fewer than a dozen black-type winners in 2023, topped by Up To the Mark, whose top-level scores have come in Churchill's Old Forester Bourbon Turf Classic at nine furlongs, the GI Resorts World Casino Manhattan S. at a mile and a quarter at Belmont Park, and most recently, the Keeneland Turf Mile first off a four-month layoff.

Sibelius earned the first top-level success of his career when proving gamest in the G1 Dubai Golden Shaheen in March. He also established a new track record when winning the Pelican S. at Tampa in 1:08.65 for the six furlongs.

Not This Time has also been represented by graded winners Next, Arzak, Gigante and Cogburn.

As his runners have excelled at the races, so too have his young progeny at public auction. A yearling half-brother to GISW Bell's the One (Majesticperfection) and GSW King Cause (Creative Cause) sold to Jacob West, agent for Robert and Lawana Low, for $1.35 million at Keeneland September and he was represented by another seven-figure horse at Keeneland and a $900,000 yearling at Fasig-Tipton Saratoga.

Champion Knicks Go (Paynter), who has his first weanlings of 2023, will stand for $15,000 S&N, while Idol (Curlin)–the full-brother to Eclipse Award winner Nest–and Tacitus (Tapit) will serve mares at $10,000 S&N.
