Not This Time (Giant's Causeway), whose record-setting, undefeated daughter Princess Noor is a leading candidate for the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, will stand the 2021 breeding season for a fee of $40,000 at Taylor Made, the farm announced Thursday. He commanded an advertised fee of $12,500 in 2020. Most of the nursery's other stallions will stand for reduced fees next year.
'TDN Rising Star' Princess Noor is one of 14 first-crop winners for Not This Time and has run the table in her three career starts to date, posting unextended victories in the GI Del Mar Debutante going seven furlongs and when trying two turns for the first time in the GII Chandelier S. A $135,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase, Princess Noor sold for $1.35 million at this year's OBS Spring Sale, the highest amount ever paid for the progeny of a first-crop stallion. According to TDN Sales Statistics, Not This Time was the leading freshman sire of 2-year-olds in training by average ($175,216 for 37 sold). Some 13 of Not This Time's second-crop yearlings sold in excess of $200,000 this year, topped by a son of Belle's Finale (Ghostzapper) that realized $450,000 from Jacob West for Repole Stable and St. Elias Stable at Keeneland September.
Not This Time is also represented by the stakes-winning Dirty Dangle on turf and an additional pair of stakes horses, including GIII Schuylerville S. third Hopeful Princess.
