Not This TimeJon Siegel

Runaway leading third-crop sire Not This Time (Giant's Causeway) will stand for $135,000 S&N in 2023 as the headliner of the Taylor Made Stallions roster, the farm announced Monday.

The leading freshman sire of 2020 by number of winners and black-type winners, and the leading second-crop sire of 2021 in all key statistical categories, Not This Time once again finds himself at the top of the heap this season. In 2022, he boasts a crop-best 12 stakes winners, 25 black-type horses, five graded stakes winners, a pair of Grade I winners and progeny earnings on the year of $10,633,215 thus far. He is the second-ranked sire of 3-year-olds by earnings, behind only Gun Runner, and top sire in North America by percentage of black-type winners for the second consecutive year at 8.3%. His top performer on the track this season is leading 3-year-old Epicenter, winner of the GI Travers S., GII Jim Dandy S., GII Louisiana Derby, GII Risen Star S. and Gun Runner S. He also finished second in the GI Kentucky Derby and GI Preakness S., amassing earnings of $2,800,100 in his sophomore campaign.

Taylor Made will further bolster its roster in 2023 with the arrival of Grade I winner Idol (Curlin), winner of the 2021 Santa Anita H. and a full-brother to multiple Grade I winner Nest who will stand his initial season at stud for $10,000 S&N as a Repole Stable/Taylor Made Stallions Venture.

Knicks Go (Paynter), Horse of the Year, Champion Older Male and Longines World's Best Racehorse of 2021, will stand his second season at stud for $30,000 S&N. A gate-to-wire winner of the $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) at Del Mar–just two clicks off the 18-year-old track record set by Candy Ride (Arg)–Knicks Go recorded a 112 Beyer in the victory. A two-time track record-setter and a Grade I winner at two, four, and five, Knicks Go banked over $9.2 million in his sensational racing career.

Tacitus (Tapit), a multiple graded stakes winner and earner of more than $3.7 million out of Champion Older Female and five-time Grade I winner Close Hatches, will stand for $10,000 S&N, the same fee he stood for during his first season at stud a year ago. The Juddmonte Farms homebred won or placed in 10 graded stakes, including five Grade Is and two Classic races.

Instagrand (Into Mischief), a $1.2 million Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream Sale acquisition and 'TDN Rising Star', will stand for $7,500 S&N. Instagrand welcomed first foals in 2022 and his initial book of mares included GI Breeders' Cup Distaff champion Blue Prize (Arg). A precocious juvenile, Instagrand led wire-to-wire to win the GII Best Pal S. by 10 3/4 lengths after breaking his maiden by 10 lengths in his debut. He also placed in the GIII Gotham S. and GI Santa Anita Derby.

Instilled Regard (Arch) also saw his first foals arrive this year, and he will stand the upcoming season for $7,500 S&N. During his racing career, Instilled Regard won the GI Manhattan S. and earned $983,240. He hails from a prolific family–his second dam is champion mare Heavenly Prize, the dam of Pure Prize.

Rowayton (Into Mischief), a multiple Grade I-placed juvenile by Into Mischief, returns for his second season at stud and will stand for $7,500 S&N. A debut maiden special weight winner, Rowayton was runner-up in the GI Del Mar Futurity and also placed in the GI American Pharoah S. behind subsequent Champion 2-Year-Old Colt Game Winner. Rowayton is out of a half-sister to two-time Canadian Champion Miss Mischief and descends from the family of champions Letruska and Proud Spell.
