Great Notion

Dazzling sprinters, sensational juveniles and a bounty of winners have become the trademark for Great Notion!

Maryland’s Stallion of the Year every year since 2016, Great Notion has topped all Maryland sires with more than $3 million in progeny earnings the past two years. His top runners of 2019 include ANNA’S BANDIT with her seven stakes wins, and graded stakes sprinter LEWISFIELD.

Great Notion has lifetime statistics of 79% winners from starters, average earnings per starter of more than $81,000, and 38 stakes horses, including sensational turf sprinter HAVELOCK, a five-time graded stakes winner of $655,752, and dazzling daughters Ruby Notion, a graded stakes-winning turf sprinter of $500,413, and Jazzy Idea, a five-time stakes winner and two-time course record setter, one while defeating older males in 1:07.29 for 6 fur. on the turf in the Laurel Dash.

More than a third of his stakes horses had stakes success at 2.

Himself a dazzling sprinter, Great Notion was undefeated at 2 and Gr. 1-placed at 3.
