Leading Second-Crop Sire Not This Time (Giant’s Causeway-Miss Macy Sue, by Trippi) tops Taylor Made Stallions roster for 2022 with a fee of $45,000 S&N. Also joining Taylor Made for the 2022 season is four-time Grade I winner Knicks Go (Paynter–Kosmo’s Buddy, by Outflanker), likely favorite for the Nov. 6 GI Breeders’ Cup Classic at Del Mar. A stud fee for Knicks Go, winner of the 2018 GI Breeders’ Futurity in addition to this season’s GI Pegasus World Cup Invitational GI Whitney S., will be announced following the Breeders’ Cup.
Currently, Not This Time leads all second-crop sires with 14 black-type horses, 10 black-type winners, two graded stakes winners, and heads his division this year with progeny earnings of $4,006,812.
Additionally, he is the leading sire by percentage of stakes winners in North America at nine percent in 2021; is the third-ranked leading sire of sophomore stakes winners in 2021, and the fourth-ranked leading sire of juvenile stakes winners this year. In his first crop, he was represented by Grade I winner Princess Noor when leading all freshman stallions with 29 winners and three black-type winners. His top performers this year include graded stakes winners Easy Time and Yes This Time.
Also highlighting Taylor Made’s 2022 roster are Instagrand (Into Mischief–Assets of War, by Lawyer Ron) and Instilled Regard (Arch–Enhancing, by Forestry), both standing their second seasons at stud for $7,500 S&N.
A $1.2 million Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream sale purchase, Instagrand was named a TDN Rising Star following his impressive debut at Los Alamitos before annexing the GII Best Pal S. by 10 ¾ lengths at Del Mar in just his second lifetime start.
Instilled Regard, a $1,050,000 OBS March Sale graduate, a four-time graded winner on dirt and turf recorded his most important career score in the GI Manhattan S. He hails from a prolific family–his second dam is champion mare Heavenly Prize, the dam of Pure Prize.
Also standing for $7,500 S&N, GI Shoemaker Mile winner Midnight Storm (Pioneerof the Nile-My Tina, by Bertrando) and Mshawish (Medaglia d’Oro–Thunder Bayou, by Thunder Gulch), a Grade I winner on the dirt and turf. The latter will stand the upcoming breeding season for $5,000 S&N.
In 2021, Mshawish has seven stakes horses (9.1%) and is the co-leading Second-Crop Sire of graded stakes winners this year along with Not This Time.
