Leading North American second-crop sire Not This Time  leads Taylor Made Stallions' 2022 stallion roster with a $45,000 fee, the farm announced Oct. 21.

Taylor Made will further bolster its roster next year with the arrival of four-time grade 1 winner Knicks Go , who is the top-ranked horse on the National Thoroughbred Racing Association Thoroughbred Poll and likely favorite in the $6 million Longines Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) Nov. 6 at Del Mar. Knicks Go, a 5-year-old son of leading fifth-crop sire Paynter , won the Claiborne Breeders' Futurity (G1) at 2, the Big Ass Fans Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (G1) at 4 and, so far this year, added the Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes (G1), Whitney Stakes (G1), Prairie Meadows Cornhusker Stakes (G3), and Lukas Classic Stakes (G3) to his stakes tally. A stud fee will be announced following the Classic.

Not This Time, a son of Giant's Causeway, is the leader of his sire class with 10 black-type winners of 2021 and 14 stakes performers of 2021, and co-leader with two graded stakes winners. His progeny earnings as of Oct. 20 exceed $4 million. In addition, he is the leading sire by percentage of black-type stakes winners in North America at 8.8% for 2021; is the third-leading sire by number of 3-year-old stakes winners in 2021, and the fourth-leading sire of 2-year-old stakes winners this year.

The future looks bright for Not This Time when viewed through his Comparable Index, an earnings based index that indicates how good the mares he's been bred to are as producers. His 2021 CI for mares that produced foals is 3.11. According to BloodHorse's MarketWatch, in 2019 and 2020, only 10 stallions in North America had a higher CI than Not This Time's 2021 book, and of those, all but one will stand for six figures in the upcoming breeding season.

Not This Time also was the leading freshman sire of 2020 by number of winners (29) and co-leader by number of stakes winners (three) with Laoban. His top runner of 2020 was grade 1 winner Princess Noor. This year he sired grade 2-placed, grade 3 winner Easy Time and grade 3 winner Yes This Time.

Instagrand  and Instilled Regard  will stand their second seasons at stud for $7,500.

Instagrand, a son of Into Mischief and a precocious $1.2 million Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream Sale purchase, led gate to wire in winning the Best Pal Stakes (G2) by 10 1/4 lengths at Del Mar in just his second lifetime start. Undefeated at 2, he won his maiden special weight debut by 10 lengths, clocking five furlongs in :56 flat, just .32 of a second off the Los Alamitos track record. He also placed in the Gotham Stakes (G3) and the Santa Anita Derby (G1) at 3.

Instilled Regard, a grade 1 winner by prominent sire Arch and a $1,050,000 Ocala Breeders' Sales March 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale graduate, proved a determined winner of the $400,000 Manhattan Stakes (G1T), defeating six graded stakes winners, including grade 1 winners Sadler's Joy and Channel Maker. A four-time graded stakes winner on dirt and turf, Instilled Regard banked $983,240 in a stellar career. He hails from a prolific family—his second dam is champion mare Heavenly Prize, the dam of Pure Prize.

Freshman sire Midnight Storm , a brilliantly fast grade 1-winning son of Pioneerof the Nile, will stand for $7,500 next year. He has sired seven winners so far and was represented by 11 six-figure horses during the 2-year-olds in training sales, topped by a $550,000 colt out of the winning Indian Charlie mare Tasunke.

Mshawish , Medaglia d'Oro 's only grade 1 winner on dirt and turf and his fastest dirt miler, will stand the upcoming breeding season for $5,000. Mshawish is represented this year by stakes winners around the world, including 3-year-old Bellharbour Music, winner of the Prix Daphnis (G3) at Deauville in France, and Sainthood, winner of the $200,000 Pennine Ridge Stakes (G3) at Belmont Park and second in the Jeff Ruby Steaks (G3) at Turfway Park.

In 2021, Mshawish has seven stakes performers (9.1%) and is the co-leading second-crop sire by number of graded stakes winners alongside Not This Time.
